Bill Burr
With his crackling energy, simmering rage and trademark “uninformed logic,” Burr is simply one of the best comics working. As his specials Why Do I Do This? and Let It Go attest, Burr is at his best when positing notions that no sane person could possibly agree with (at least not in public) and then winning the crowd over, joke by joke and laugh by laugh. He’s been nabbing more parts in TV and films lately (see his turn as the comic relief in Breaking Bad), but it hasn’t stopped him from maintaining a tour schedule.
