Another Tour From Comedian Bill Burr

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

For the people who thought comedian Bill Burr was targeting Los Angeles too much with his previous videos, in today's video lunch Burr provides a tour of his haunts in Greenwich Village, New York, where he spent 15 years honing his craft before moving to LA in 2008. Fans of comedy should pay attention to the locales Burr calls refers to and which now-famous comics he saw and performed with. The Comedy Cellar, Café Wha?, the Boston Comedy Club, and more places are toured along with plenty of observational humor directed at himself and passers-by.

You can find out more about Bill Burr at his website, we highly recommend his Monday Morning Podcast, and you have a chance to see Burr perform at the Big Time Comedy Show benefit for Greg Giraldo's family next week.
