Bill Burr

Bill Burr is an American comedian or a comedian from the North American Union, depending on when you read this.  He grew up outside of Boston, Massachusetts and did fairly poorly in school, despite the fact that he applied himself.

Having first gained notoriety for his recurring role on the second season of Chappelle’s Show, Bill developed a comedic style of uninformed logic that has made him a regular with Conan O’Brien and Jimmy Fallon.

Bill’s fifth hour-long stand-up special will premiere on Netflix on January 31, 2017.  The special was shot on October 21, 2016 at The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.  And later in 2017, Bill will premiere the second season of his hit animated Netflix series, F Is For Family, featuring Bill, Laura Dern and Justin Long as the Murphy family.  The first season of F is for Family premiered on December 18, 2015.  In the summer of 2016, his fourth European theatre tour brought Bill back to Ireland, the U.K., Amsterdam and he made first visits to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Cologne, Germany and Antwerp, Belgium.

Bill performed a sold out show at Madison Square Garden on November 14, 2015.  He was seen in the Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell film, Daddy’s Home, which premiered on December 25, 2015 and he co-starred opposite Kevin Costner in the indie film, Black or White, which premiered on January 30, 2015 and made its World Premiere at The Toronto International Film Festival.  

On December 5, 2014, Bill premiered his fourth hour-long special, I’m Sorry You Feel That Way, on Netflix; the special was recorded on June 20, 2014 at The Tabernacle in Atlanta.  On September 30, 2014, Bill released the vinyl album, Live At Andrew’s House, a recording of his 2011 Carnegie Hall performance, from Third Man Records.  In July of 2014, Bill received the Stand-up Comedian of the Year Award from the prestigious Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal.  

Also in 2014, Bill was seen in Walk of Shame alongside Elizabeth Banks and in 2013 he was seen in the films The Heat with Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy, and Stand Up Guys with Al Pacino and Christopher Walken.  Bill was also seen in the Steve Carell & Tina Fey feature, Date Night.

Bill received raves for his recurring role as “Kuby” on the hit AMC-TV show, Breaking Bad and he was seen in multiple episodes of the hit Comedy Central show, Kroll Show.  He guest starred on 

Fox TV’s New Girl in 2013 and contributed to the 2012 and 2011 ESPYS.

One of the most popular comedy podcasts on the web, Bill’s Monday Morning Podcast, is an off-the-cuff, twice-weekly rant that has become a fan favorite.  Bill began the podcast in May of 2007 and has produced more than 400 episodes.

Bill and Al Madrigal founded the All Things Comedy network (ATC), a distribution network founded, owned and operated entirely by comedians. Home to 67 podcasts from 93 comedians, ATC began as a podcast network but is continually growing to include all forms of content including videos, comedy specials and records.  

Bill is selling out theaters internationally. From January 27 through February 10, 2015 Bill made his first tour of theaters in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong and Mumbai.  In December 2013 his third European theater tour played to rave reviews in London, Glasgow, Dublin, Amsterdam, Helsinki, Copenhagen, Oslo, Stockholm and Reykjavik.  

In October 2012, Bill released his third hour-long special, You People Are All The Same, available for download exclusively through his website and streaming on Netflix.  Bill starred in two hour specials on Comedy Central: Bill Burr: Let It Go (2010) is available as a DVD, a digital audio download and on Netflix; Why Do I Do This? (2008) is available on CD, DVD and Netflix.

Simon & Schuster released the book, Cheat, written by Bill and fellow comedians Joe DeRosa and Robert Kelly in October 2012.  The book was inspired by the short film, Cheat, which Burr, DeRosa and Kelly produced, co-wrote and star in.  The film, based on a true story, had its World Premiere at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival and screened at the 2011 Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal.

In the near future Bill hopes to have some kids.  But until then, he will continue to spend most of his mid-afternoons sitting in his sweatpants learning AC/DC songs on his SG.

Bill is against organized religion and believes we should go back to the gold standard for our currency.  None of his opinions are based on any sort of reliable information.  He tends to go with his first thought, because reading makes him sleepy.

Show Description

“Mike Birbiglia’s Working It Out”

Fresh off his recent hit show, “Thank God for Jokes,” that toured 100 cities, ran off-Broadway for 4 months, and was nominated for the Lucille Lortel award, Mike Birbiglia will be making some rare club appearances in 2017. Birbiglia is underway on an all-new hour of comedy. In his own words, “I’ve never been more excited about standup in my whole career. These shows will be a blend of entirely new material, improvisation, and a few stories from ‘Thank God for Jokes.’ These shows are raw, semi-improvised, unfinished. As rough as it might be, I promise that my heart will be in it and sometimes my writing has to catch up to my heart. That said, they will be FUN. And FUNNY.”

Nick Di Paolo

The Winnipeg Press said it best: “Gentle as a starved wolverine and as predictable as a tipsy-hop through a minefield”. Nick Di Paolo’s honest and acerbic comedy has made him a sought after voice on stage, television and radio for years and earned him two Emmy Nominations for writing.

Di Paolo’s career took off after he appeared on “HBO’s Young Comedian Special”. He has since written and performed four standup specials and four CDs. The most recent standup effort being a one hour Showtime special entitled “Raw Nerve”.

He was a regular for the whole two year run of “Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn” and became a staple on the Comedy Central roasts. Other notable television and film credits include “Louie”, “Lucky Louie”, Artie Lange’s “Beer League” a guest starring role on “The Sopranos” and “The Chris Rock Show”, where he was a writer for two seasons as well. Writing credits also include the 77th Annual Academy Awards and the MTV Music Video Awards.

For years he has been a favorite guest on radio shows including “The Howard Stern Show”, “The Opie and Anthony Show” and “The Dennis Miller Show” to name a few. He also hosted “The Nick Di Paolo Show” in New York City in 2007 and “The Nick and Artie Show” from 2011-2012.

Nick Di Paolo is probably one of the most authentic voices whether on or off stage. He’s referred to as a comic’s comic because there are no facades, no act. It’s all Nick Di Paolo, all the time.

Orny Adams

orny-adams-2015-final-img-1feature

American comic Orny Adams has been touring all over the world for over twenty years. With hundreds of thousands of followers on social media, Orny is regarded by his peers as one of the hardest working and passionate comedians in the business. Orny first rose to international prominence after Jerry Seinfeld chose him to co-star in his documentary “Comedian.” He has made several appearances on The Tonight Show and appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman. Orny’s debut DVD “Path Of Most Resistance,” was critically acclaimed and was available on Netflix. That was followed by a powerful and poignant one hour special “Orny Adams Takes The Third” which aired on Comedy Central and Netflix. Currently, and for the past six seasons, Orny can be seen playing the iconic role “Coach Finstock” on the hit MTV show “Teen Wolf,” a one hour drama created by Criminal Mind’s Jeff Davis. Jeff handpicked Orny for the role after seeing him perform at the Hollywood Improv.

Early in his career Orny was named in The Hollywood Reporter as a favorite comedian to watch. He has written jokes for Jay Leno, Garry Shandling, and many other top comedians. He has twice written for the Annual Emmys Broadcast and has become the “go to” guy when a celebrity needs a funny line. In July 2000, Orny made quite an impact at the Montreal Comedy Festival, which resulted in a development deal with Warner Brothers Studio, and his appearance on Letterman. In 2010, Orny was thrilled to return to the festival in Montreal working alongside one of his favorite comedians Steve Martin on a taped televised stand up show Martin hosted. Orny garnered rave reviews for his performance and was called a “Stand-out act” by The Hollywood Reporter.

Other notable projects include a talk show pilot developed for Orny by CBS Television Distribution/Kingworld along side Ashton Kutcher’s Katalyst Films. Orny shot another pilot for his own late night talk show for TBS and taped his own series, “Modern Chaos with Orny Adams” for The Discovery Channel. He hosted his own show on Discovery’s Travel Channel, has appeared on Jiminy Glick, Tough Crowd on Comedy Central, The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn, Last Call With Carson Daly, and did a regular segment on Hollywood and politics on Entertainment Tonight and The Insider. You may also recognize him from other notable television appearances and many of his national commercials, including Coca-Cola. Orny made his first TV appearance in 1996 on Friday Night Videos.

When not performing stand-up, Orny spends his days writing, penning scripts, and developing television shows. A few years back, he struck a deal with Endimol for “The Pitch,” a reality show he conceived.

But none of this matters until you see Orny live where he is at his best, deconstructing the chaos of the modern world and getting energized about things that most people just accept. His tour has reached clubs, theatres, even the Staples Center in LA, colleges, corporate events, and festivals as far away as Ireland, Australia, and South Africa. Orny’s comedy style is unique, yet universally appealing. Orny is quick on his feet to deliver a powerful, clever, sophisticated, and fast paced routine that pounds topics from an angle that many people have never considered.

What some people have said: “I’m a big Orny Adams fan.”

Jerry Seinfeld

“I thought this CD was hilarious. Then Orny told me it was a DVD. Well, to see his facial expressions made it even funnier. Either way, he kicks ass.”

Garry Shandling

“You judge a comedian by the laughs he gets and the laughs on this CD are huge…shattering. Orny reminds me of Joe Frazier working the ribcage.”

Dennis Miller

“There’s a growing group of people who have known that Orny is a great comic thinker and performer. We search out his stuff on the internet, we go to his shows, we send emails around with things he’s said. It’s like we discovered Bob Dylan early and everyone else is just about to.”

Last year, Craig won Best Supporting Actor at the Elevate Film Festival. His own film The Lovemaster (with Farrah Fawcett), won “Best Film” honors at the Los Angeles Independent Film Festival.

Craig began his career in his hometown of Philadelphia, where he honed his comedy and characters winning the “Best of Philly” Award while working as a bartender and attending Temple University. As a voiceover artist, Craig’s dead-on impression of Don Knotts was featured in the film Pleasantville (which he also played the narrator) and has voiced many hit animated series including Teamo Supremo, Monsters, and I M Weasel.

Jake Johannsen

 

A native of Iowa, Jake Johannsen spent three years at Iowa State University dabbling in veterinarian science and chemical engineering before moving to San Francisco and trying his hand at comedy.  Jake sought to make his comedic mark on the city at a time when San Francisco was fostering the likes of young talents such as Bobcat Goldthwait and Dana Carvey.  Jake made his own comedy debut during an open mike night at San Francisco’s Cobb’s Comedy Club. Four years later, in 1986, he won the 11th Annual San Francisco Stand-Up Comedian Competition.

A self-confessed raconteur of weird stories, it’s no wonder that Jake is one of David Letterman’s favorite comics.  With 46 Letterman appearances under his belt (not to mention a handful of Late Night with Conan O’Brien, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and Politically Incorrect gigs), Jake is no stranger to late night television.  His late night appearances gave Jake the exposure he needed to land his very own HBO comedy special, This’ll Take About An Hour.  Jake received incredible reviews, strong ratings, and a Cable Ace Award nomination for Best Writing in an Entertainment Special.  People Magazine rated the special as one of the “ten best television shows of the year,” and TV Guide named it one of the “50 Funniest Moments of TV.”   

Jake is also making his mark on the feature world.  Jake appeared on the big screen next to Bruce Willis in the Alan Rudolph film Breakfast of Champions.  Jake first worked with Rudolph on the film Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle, in which he co-starred in a cast that included Matthew Broderick, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Campbell Scott.  

Jake’s bizarre take on life and his uniquely intelligent style have made him a regular at comedy clubs all over the country and a former host of Comedy Central’s Two Drink Minimum.  Jake has had numerous television appearances as well as his own Comedy Central ½ hour special.  His latest Comedy Special entitled “i Love You” is currently airing on Netflix.
