Bill Burr Promises to be Unedited at the Keith-Albee Performing Arts Center

HUNTINGTON, WV- Thanks to the MU Office of Student Involvement, Bill Burr and his uncensored ways are coming to the Keith-Albee Performing Arts Center on Wednesday, September 18, 2013 @ 7:30 p.m.  To Bill Burr’s own admission, this show isn’t for kids or the faint of heart.  Burr will bring his brash personality and jokes to Huntington for the first time in his young career.

Having one of the freshest voices in comedy today, Burr will speak to a new generation in this night of comedy.  He boasts an impressive comedic résumé.  Fans should expect to see the same uninformed logic that proved successful on Chappelle’s Show, The Late Show with David Letterman, and Showtime at the Apollo.

Die-hard Bill Burr fans don’t need to hear all of these credentials though.  Burr’s strong following of fans know his style and expect to be offended at some point during the show.  And while there will always be critics who over-analyze his work, one can’t deny his passion for the craft and fans.  In an interview with The Press-Enterprise, Burr exclaimed about keeping the fans happy: I think you just need to go out there and make them laugh, whether it’s slapstick or a really well written thing.  As long as you make them laugh they seem to be happy.”

Bill Burr’s comedic intelligence was also put on display in the interview with this excerpt: “The second I tell a joke, it’s not my joke anymore because it’s cut with their childhood/life experience.  Once it goes into their hard drive the information that comes out could be 180 degrees from what I was thinking and what I was saying.”

This night of comedy with Bill Burr is sponsored by 24/7 Comedy, WAMX, The Herald Dispatch, Marshall University, the Marshall University College of Arts and Media, and the Marshall Artists Series.
