Bill Burr has been known as a “comedian’s comedian” for years, but it was thanks to his perseverance and YouTube that he finally broke big. At a gig in Philadelphia where Burr was being heckled, the comic gave it right back to the audience. The footage went viral and Burr’s star immediately rose.
Burr now has five hour-long comedy specials under his belt including this year’s “Walk Your Way Out” which streams on Netflix. That platform is also the home for his animated comedy “F Is for Family” which recently premiered its second season
As an actor, he has appeared in such shows as “Breaking Bad” and the films “Date Night” and “The Heat.” The best way to experience Burr is with his incredible live show which comes to Horseshoe Casino’s Bluesville on Sept. 8.
