Bill Burr is at the Hollywood Improv this weekend


Bill Burr is at the Hollywood Improv this weekend
Last year comedian Bill Burr released his fantastic one hour special, "Why Do I Do This?" (read/listen to our interview with him) and after extensively touring the country he's coming to LA this weekend: Friday and Saturday night at the Hollywood Improv.You might have seen Burr in as a regular on “Chappelle’s Show,” but he has also appeared frequently on the “Late Show with David Letterman” and “Late Night with Conan O’Brien.” Boston-bred Burr relocated to Los Angeles but he keeps close ties to home through both his weekly podcasts as well as blogging for the Boston Bruins on the NHL website.

Speaking from the experience of seeing a Burr show, no two are the same as he is constantly creating new material and is always topical. A few months ago Burr was interviewed by Bostonist as he gave them a hilarious tour of Hollywood (check out the video after the jump), a tour that was improv'd extemporaneously. Going to one of these shows is a must if you are into stand-up.
