Bill Burr: Let It Go (review)

5 of 5 Stars

I can now see why he has a 4.1 rating. I'd never heard of him before, nor of his work, WHY NOT?! This guy is hilarious & as another said, how can he get to 41, be THIS funny & not know of his work? He's amazing & deserves his own show. He's up there with Hicks, Stanhope, Kinison, Carlin, so many yet he has his own style & fresh material. He does swear but in the service of his jokes & stories, not gratuitously (for those it bugs, I could care less about swearing). He riffs on being a bachelor, kids, relationships, pit bull pound dog rescues, growing old, death, I don't think any subject is off limits. An intelligent & observant comic, which makes him one of the best. Extremely honest, no pretenses and no apologies for being himself. If one can't laugh at oneself, one doesn't belong watching stand up comedy by any of the greats because that's what makes them funny & us laugh the most. Worth buying!
