I’ve been a huge fan of Bill Burr since the mid-’90s.
The Day the Clown Cried is a classic film for all the wrong reasons.
He starred in American Hustle and Trumbo. He wrote for The Late Show with Conan O’Brien and The Chris Rock Show. He wrote and directed Pootie Tang and was part of the disaster that was The Dana Carvey Show.
Sisters, the new film starring Tina Fey Pierznik and Amy Poehler, comes out today and I don’t know why.
Serial, the most popular podcast in history, returned yesterday.
I’m going to see Jerry Seinfeld perform live tonight.
It doesn’t always come across in my self-loathing or self-congratulatory writing, but I can be a pretty funny guy. However, my humor comes from either conversation or reference.

Stand-up comedy is an incredible skill, one I’ve never even pretended to have.
