Anyone going to see Burr at the Royal Albert Hall in 3 weeks?  He's taping his next special there so give us a wave.

Wait, he is?! I'm going to that. I'll shout your name out.

He's taping both nights. Some UK-baiting tangents might make the edit!

Last time I saw him he absolutely ripped up the Hammersmith Apollo. I think he called it one of his best shows ever, so he might have a fondness for these Isles.

How did the shows go? He sounded very happy with the two London shows he filmed.

He was excellent. The crowd were really up for it, almost too much at times, some annoying hecklers and cheering on routines to the point where he was even troubled by it, haha! The opening 20 minutes or so might get him #cancelled.

Thanks, can't wait. I'll hazard a guess the risky opening section is something about the prissy censoriousness of millennials/Gen Z.

I was there too. The opening 20 minutes were unbelievably shocking. I loved it but, if it all makes it unedited to the special, I can see lots of cabbers being very contemptuous and scolding about it. After last year's disappointing special which wasn't that funny or angry, I thought age and fatherhood had mellowed him. Not a tiny bit of it

And full credit (despite the show being called 50) to him for avoiding any routines about turning 50 or becoming a father.

Agree that the hecklers were an irritant. I was disappointed in my country folk...

It's that and it's WAY more risky stuff too

Crikey.

He said on his podcast that some of his New York audience a couple of weeks ago (pre-UK) were taken aback by some of his material. Some anti-(white)women jokes?

It essentially ticks off the check list of what you shouldn't say in the current climate.

That was part of it.

I don't want to commit any spoiler errors but it's basically a huge broadside against woke/cancel culture, with a focus on woke-era feminism. Great routine about Michelle Obama. In amongst all the very funny fury, though, he does acknowledge the existence and unfairness of white/male privilege and cultural appropriation, but I suspect nuances such as these will be lost in the probably inevitable outrage.

I sometimes wonder how some of the stuff he says on the podcast would go down if it had a bigger audience - maybe this will put it to the test. I still can't imagine it'll be anything that'll get him taken down though.

Why are you hiding a discussion of Bill Burr's stand up in an F Is For Family thread?

My fault for bumping it last month. It was a recent Burr-related thread and I didn't think my post merited another one.

Yes perhaps the only people who could cancel him in any significant sense are Netflix and even then he'd still be selling out the Albert Hall so hardly the end of the world. The CK cancelling was obviously of a different category. He won't be shunned by pretty much all of society but I fear that people will start arguing that he's somehow alt.right and centrist fans will start to become afraid to admit liking him. I hope not

Is the Michelle Obama stuff the same as he has brought up before about her just being the wife of the president so why does she get so much respect? Compared to the wife of a plumber?

It’s not the same routine, but it has a similar point. It’s about her doing an arena tour.

As a long term fan of Burr it's weird to see him start to drift out of line with what the mainstream deems acceptable without actually changing at all
