Bill Burr Performs Standup at The Pete (Thurs., 4/21/22)

You probably know someone who is a misanthrope—a person who doesn’t like people. And to the casual listener, that’s what comedian Bill Burr might seem to be. He’s got a last name that fits his cynical style, which involves buzzing away like a dentist’s burr into the human foibles of just about everybody. It would be hard to name a personality type, body type, or demographic group that he hasn’t mocked mercilessly … and yet the crowds keep coming, and they laugh. Maybe it’s because he does it all with a big infectious grin, like the class clown in high school who couldn’t stop clowning. Which in fact may be what he really is. Burr hosts a weekly web series called “The Monday Morning Podcast.” He just wrapped an animated TV series, “F Is for Family,” that aired on Netflix. Burr also played Patrick Kuby in the AMC crime drama “Breaking Bad.” Recent roles include Migs Mayfeld in the Disney+ series “The Mandalorian” and Ray Bishop in the film The King of Staten Island. You can catch him live on his Slight Return Tour on Pitt’s campus at the Petersen Events Center. 7 p.m. 3719 Terrace St., Oakland. (MV)
