Comedian Bill Burr will take the stage at The Capitol Theater with a set of three 18-and-over shows from June 29 through July 1. Burr is known for his direct comedy style that offers a cynical take on common experiences within our culture – whether he is complaining about his GPS device or about notions of religion. Often sparing no feelings, his anecdotal humor is cutting and honest, putting political correctness on the back-burner for the sake of his art. Named one of Rolling Stone’s “50 best stand-up comics of all time,” Burr has had numerous stand-up specials on Comedy Central and Netflix, as well as his television roles on Chappelle’s Show, Breaking Bad and his animated Netflix series, F is for Family. His popular off-the-cuff, twice-weekly comedy podcast, Monday Morning Podcast, spurred “All Things Comedy,” a distribution network, founded by Burr and fellow comedian Al Madrigal, which is owned and operated entirely by comedians.
