Posts Tagged ‘Bill Burr- I’m Sorry You Feel That Way’

billIt has been quite some time since the last Tuesday Stand Up special, but I figured that with already a month gone by in the year that I should start watching some of this years specials. The stand up comedian I chose for today won the first ever Stand Up Special Of The Year award for his comedy special Bill Burr- I’m Sorry You Feel That Way for the Monster Entertainment Awards. Bill Burr is one of my favorite stand up comedians that is out there in the scene who occassionally does movies and has an awesome animated series on Netflix called F Is For Family. So, it was only natural that when I saw he had a brand new special on Netflix called Bill Burr- Walk Your Way Out that I was going to check it out. The special was filmed at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN and in the special Bill tackles all sorts of topics like the 2016 Presidential election and it’s candidates Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton, The Wall, plus size models, shaming, India, getting fat vs working out, McDonalds, going crazy, his plan to eliminate the population, cruises, Hitler, a youtube clip of a gorilla learning sign language, and so much more.

bill-burrAs I said in the above paragraph that I am a huge fan of Bill Burr and everything he has done up to this point. However, I wasn’t a huge fan of the special and that is not me saying that I hated it. I just don’t believe that it tops his last special that he had, but the crowd in Nashville could have had something to do with it. He had some real funny moments during the special like the Gorilla learning sign language one was hilarious, but his whole thing with Hitler and how he would eliminate the population problem didn’t go over well with the crowd and Bill have to explain what he meant kind of killed the joke in my opinion. It’s kind of funny that this special was taped before the election took place because I am a little interested to hear what he thinks now even though I am getting sick of seeing all the political talk int he world right now. He had some really great jokes and then some that were OK meaning it got a little laugh out of me. He is still one of my favorite comedians, but Nashville maybe wasn’t the right place to tape the special. I am going to give the special an B for a final grade.

bill burrNetflix has really come around full circle with everything that the streaming service produces from great TV shows like Bojack Horseman to incredible stand up specials from great comedians like Bill Burr. Netflix is producing knock out material that never disappoints and that is why I trust them when it comes to me trying to figure out who I want to cover next for my Tuesday Stand Up posts. The special I chose for today is from Boston comedian Bill Burr and it’s called Bill Burr- I’m Sorry You Feel That Way which was filmed at The Tabernacle in Atlanta, Georgia. Bill covers everything in this special from how romantic comedies can ruin sex all the way to how giving too many hugs can ruin prospects for a kid later on in his life. he’ll also cover the hot social topic of religion and he even tackles the situation with Paula Dean, the owner of the clippers, and the old guy from Duck Dynasty and he does it in his style of comedy which is absolutely hilarious.

bill burr 2One of my favorite things right off the bat after seeing this is stylistically how it was filmed and how I think it symbolically fits in with everything he talked about. The whole special is filmed in black and white and it has this old time special vibe to it and a lot of the topics Bill covers has to do with age and discovering things for himself now that he is older. Bill is easily a comedian that I can relate to not just because he is from the same area as me, but because of his upbringing. He also makes sense when he talks about the Duck Dynasty figure that made the comments about homosexual people. He tackles religion in this special and he does it in a way that most people can actually relate. One of my favorite stories he tells is when you die and you go up to heaven to get judged, God will playback a DVD of your life and he’ll judge you. All of us have had the same reaction to that statement as he has and that is what makes it funny. He can relate to the crowd and he definitely knows how to feed off of their vibes and you’ll see that in this special a lot. I don’t want to give away too much because this is definitely worth watching. I am going to give Bill Burr’s comedy special the seal of approval and an A+ for making me laugh a lot.
