Chappelle’s Show was a huge career boost for several comedians, Bill Burr among them. His acerbic, East Coast-bred wisecracks worked well with the show’s confrontational humor. He showed his full worth on his 2008 CD/DVD Bill Burr: Why Do I Do This? Burr hilariously gutted such topics as pedophiles and old people, and how buddy movies persist in stressing race relations. The comedian tackled his anger-management issues—among other things—on 2010’s Let It Go, and premièred a short film he co-wrote and starred in called “Cheat” at 2011’s Tribeca Film Festival. More recently, Burr appeared in the Steve Carell/Tina Fey comedy Date Night and as Bob Odenkirk’s lackey in Breaking Bad.
