Default Bill Burr: Walk Your Way Out Stand-Up Special

New on Netflix... It's good, but its definitely not as good as his previous stuff.. bit disappointed. Right from the get go he kind of hastily started and never really found a great theme/rhythm except a couple of times IMO.

He definitely picks up in the second third, at the end of his personal dictator stuff.

his actual dictator stuff was kinda dark lol, cause he did it so long.. in fact, Stalin didnt just triple Hitler's mark, he killed about 50-60 million... unfathomable.

The whole reaction to a crowd going "aww" over an animal dying was really repetitive and unecessary though.. also just plain off point when he compared it to the Hitler reactions.

The saved gorilla who goes on to destory the planet bit was also meh.

This one wasn't as good as his older specials. His older specials was the funniest specials I've watched. Absolute gold mine.

I thought it started off decent but fizzled out, that gorilla bit dragged on for way too long. But his timing, confidence and ability to walk the social tight rope are all still there, just needs to be less lazy with his material.

I think I've heard a variation of, we need less humans on this planet, half a dozen times from him.


It always surprises me how much there's a lack of really good comics out there. I mean there's hundreds of top notch athletes for every sports, countless talented actors and yet barely 10 amazing comedians of all time. And they get paid similar money nowadays. I guess it's just that hard to be funny on stage, by yourself, consistently

I'm in agreement with the consensus here. I still got several laughs.

You People Are All The Same is one of the GOATs and probably won't be topped.

Alot of the jokes on this special he already used on his guest appearances on Conan. They were hilarious at the time I heard it and I listened to them a few times for the the Lulz but I heard it way too many times from him at this special so maybe that's why I found it meh.

But his older specials are just hilarious. He's kinda just ranting at this point and his stand up sounded like his podcasts(which he just rants lol)

But still Burr to me is the GOAT. He's hilarious when he makes guest appearances and it just comes natural to him. He's also funny because he tells uncomfortable and sensitive jokes that people are too afraid to laugh and he calls them out on that.

He does that with everything lol. Alot of his comedic value comes from the shock factor.
