* TheUnfairSex: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cKkEowjdNa0 Discussed in a podcast]] about Carrie Underwood's song "Before He Cheats." Bill repeatedly talks about how much he hates the song because the narrator of the song never actually says definitively that her man is cheating. And yet, she feels the need to destroy his personal property based on this assumption.
--> '''Burr''': Why don't you just break up with him?

--> "Alright, look, I get it; there's dudes out there touching kids. But it's only a tiny fraction of the population so, y'know, take it ''down'' a few, because you're making it fuckin' awkward out there."



* PaedoHunt: The widespread panic over this is a point of contention with him, since he loves kids but can't joke with them or show them any sort of public affection without people getting paranoid.

** A whole routine goes on about how people are too hard on old people who say racist things, because what did everyone ''think'' their thoughts were on the subject? In particular, he commends Donald Sterling on not using the N-word once in his recorded statements despite being an 80 year old white man who spent his formative years watching a completely accepted all-white baseball (plus, if his statements there actually do represent the views he's had all his life, he was probably considered a flaming hippie back in the day).

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: He only started a podcast at the insistence of a fellow comedian, Robert Kelly. If that hadn't been the case, his podcast likely never would have gotten the success it's grown into.

* OldShame: One of his initial 'jokes' was wearing his dental assistant's mask at the end of his act... then waving and going off stage. He didn't have a joke for the prop and he's stated it's the worst joke he ever did, in terms of lack of humor.
** His early career in general. When guesting on a show with Kevin Pollack, Bill Burr describes watching an old VHS tape in which he has a horrific outfit on that is only slightly worse than his jokes.

* DoingItForTheArt: He's recorded a special at Carnegie Hall, recorded a special entirely in black and white and has released a special on vinyl, all because of how much he loves the art of comedy.

* PromotedFanboy: When he got a role on Series/BreakingBad he had already been a long-time fan of the show, which had caused him to ask TWO different agents to pursue getting him a role on the show.
** After getting the role, and being on set: "It's like I got sucked into my T.V. and there's Mr. White, Jesse, Saul."- to paraphrase Bill's explanation of the experience.
