Writer Bill Burr

One of America's fastest-rising comedians, Bill Burr wields his razor-sharp wit with rare skill. You've seen him on Chappelle's Show, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with David Letterman and HBO's One Night Stand. In this brand-new stand-up performance, Bill takes aim at the stuff that drives us crazy, political correctness gone haywire, and girlfriends, or as he calls them: relentless psycho robots. A keenly observant social commentator, Bill Burr is also one of the funniest voices in comedy today.

Bill Burr: Why Do I Do This?: 8 out of 10: Stand up comedy acts are can be difficult to review. After all what is funny is somewhat subjective. Bill Burr is funny. His act is fresh and the concert film is free from those ridiculous distractions that plague so many comedy concert films nowadays.

He delivers his lines with perfect timing and attitude. Whether it is battling his demons that cause him to drive through pedestrians on the sidewalk or dealing with racist grandmothers, he is on target with his material without a wasted word or gesture.

Some may find his material misogynistic and offensive and often it is. It is also damn funny.
