With all due respect to Louis CK, Aziz Ansari and other top-tier contemporary comic talents, you’d be hard-pressed to find a comedian in today’s saturated stand-up comedy market who has more loyal fans than Bill Burr. With his tireless work ethic, his sidesplitting takes on everyday minutiae, and his utterly fearless stage persona (he took on the city of Philadelphia and won!), it’s not hard to understand. Fortunately, Burr treats Milwaukee audiences much better than he does crowds in Philly and he makes sure to come to town semi-regularly.
In March of 2013, the Monday Morning Podcast host and Saul Goodman associate on Breaking Bad sold out a pair of Pabst Theater shows and delighted both crowds with material that would be on his lauded 2014 Netflix special, I’m Sorry You Feel That Way. In accordance with the veteran funnyman’s appearance on Conan Thursday, Pabst Theater Group announced Burr is coming back to Milwaukee this fall. On Tuesday, October 27, he’ll return to town with a new hour (or so) of jokes for a pair of Riverside Theater audiences.
Reserved tickets for the 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. shows cost $40 and will go on sale Friday, August 28 at noon.
