Bill Burr Responds to ‘Rolling Stone’ Calling Him ‘The New Louis C.K.’

By

Standup Bill Burr went on Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell last night, and Bell asked him about Rolling Stone dubbing him “The New Louis C.K.,” which he has a few problems with. Burr says, “I don’t know why they wrote that. ‘Oh, he’s a balding redhead. I think they’re the same thing’ … I don’t like how they’re talking about him like he’s not the king. He’s the king. All I do is tell jokes. He tells jokes, puts out specials faster than I do; he’s writing, acting, and directing in arguably the funniest show on TV. I just do standup in strip malls.” He adds, “I don’t like how they talk shit for me.”
