William "Bill" Burr is an American stand-up comedian, radio host and actor. In 1995, he moved to New York City and lived there for eight months. He then moved to Los Angeles, California, where he worked on a number of film and television projects. He returned to New York in 1999 and moved back to Los Angeles in 2008, where he currently resides. He performs over three hundred shows annually, had two movies released in 2006. Bill's comedic style of uninformed logic has made him a regular on The Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. In early 2004, he appeared in two episodes of Chappelle's Show, and in September 2005, his HBO One Night Stand special aired. Along with many other projects, Burr has also been a guest comedian on the Bob and Tom Show as well as on the Opie and Anthony Show on XM Satellite Radio, sometimes sitting in when third member Jim Norton is away. He has also performed on the Comedy Central Presents show.

On December 16, 2006, Burr hosted a three-hour radio show on Opie and Anthony's XM radio channel program The Virus (channel 202) titled "Uninformed with Bill Burr & Joe DeRosa" from 9pm-12am. The second Uninformed show aired February 10, 2007 from 9pm-12am, and the show has continued to run on an irregular schedule about once a month. Since Burr's move to Los Angeles, it has primarily been a pre-taped show, rather than live. In September 2007, Burr signed with Colorado independent label What Are Records?. His debut album Emotionally Unavailable: Expanded Edition was released October 16, 2007. Emotionally Unavailable carries content previously available only in Burr’s stand-up shows. It features a completely unedited set with Burr covering topics from rednecks to inadvertent racism to relationship books to crazy people on the subway. The Expanded Edition augments that album with previously unreleased highlights from a different tour - the Houston stop of the I’m Rich Biatch Tour which Bill co-headlined with Chappelle's Show cast mates Charlie Murphy and Donnell Rawlings. Much of the material from this tour later turned up on Burr’s HBO stand-up special. As with other comics associated with The Opie & Anthony Show, in 2008, Burr's voice was featured in the game, Grand Theft Auto IV. In the game, Bill plays Jason Michaels of the biker gang The Lost MC in the mission "No Love Lost". In 2009, he reprised his role in the game's expansion pack The Lost and Damned. Burr's most recent special is entitled "Let It Go" which premiered on Comedy Central on September 18, 2010 and was shot at the Fillmore in San Francisco, California. He is referred to by several in the industry as the "Comedian's Comedian". Burr appeared in the movie Date Night as Detective Walsh. He also appeared in season 4 of AMC's Breaking Bad as Kuby. Bill’s short film, Cheat, had its World Premiere at The Tribeca Film Festival and in July the film screened at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal. Bill produced, co-wrote and stars in the film with fellow comedians Joe DeRosa and Robert Kelly. Based on a true story, the film follows three friends on a mission to pull off the perfect score. Bill received a standing ovation for his sold out show at Carnegie Hall and the following night he received the prestigious Comedian of the Year Award from the Boston Comedy Festival; previous recipients include Steven Wright, Denis Leary and Lewis Black. Bill is selling out theaters internationally and just returned from his second theater tour of Europe playing to standing ovations and rave reviews in London, Copenhagen, Oslo, Helsinki and Stockholm.
