* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Fought against the idea of having ADD for a long time, until he was having an emotional moment about a deceased friend and comic, Patrice O'Neal. During the conversation he looks at the ceiling, notices a spider and completely goes off in another direction about the spider. When he looks away from the spider to his wife, whom he had been talking with, the look on her face finally let it sink in that he has ADD.

Added DiffLines:

* BlackComedy: A master of the craft. One particularly dark bit had him asking the crowd if any of them has ever ''also'' fantasized about steering their car onto a crowded sidewalk:
-->"I mean, I keep my hand right here [12:00 position on the steering wheel], nobody knows who I am. I move the wheel just three inches to the right, I'm on the cover of Newsweek!"


Added DiffLines:

* NoEnding: He was profoundly troubled by the abrupt ending to a video on [=YouTube=] detailing a gorilla smart enough to use sign language, that was heartbroken by the death of its pet kitten. He then tells a ''loooong'' ShaggyDogStory about a gorilla that ends with no punchline, just to show that audience how he felt after the video.[[note]]He's talking about Koko the gorilla. Happily, Koko eventually did receive more pet kittens.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* RedheadsAreUncool: He frequently alludes to this, but also makes no secret of his annoyance with the trope.

** Bill frequently jokes about killing himself, and sees people who [[DyingMomentOfAwesome die in spectacular ways]] as heroic. Considering his age, he's probably just joking.

** Bill frequently jokes about killing himself, and sees people who [[DyingMomentOfAwesome die in spectacular ways]] as heroic. Considering his age, he's probably just joking. He explains that it's only an urge that hits him in response to minor frustrations, and once talked about how he was tempted to smash his face through a window and bleed out down the side of his house... just to get out of ''making a pie''.



* TheUnfettered: To a degree, in his professional life. He doesn't have a show, or other ways for Professional Offendees to latch onto if he says or does something offensive on stage or on his podcast. He ''does'' have a show now, but has explained that he gets complainers to back off simply by refusing to play their game and publicly apologize, knowing that the social media outrage mob would treat such a concession as a "guilty" plea and go after him harder.

* EnforcedPlug: He has a tendency to make fun of his sponsors on the podcast even as he advertises for them. His bit on [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rl5JDzvkEA0 Shari's Berries]] is practically a comedy routine in itself.

* HairTriggerTemper

to:

* HairTriggerTemperHairTriggerTemper: It takes very little to set him off. He once did an entire routine about getting angry over someone slightly perturbing him at a Saturday market, suggesting he should destroy someone's merchandise just for the look on their face.



* HiddenDepths: Crosses with MasterOfNone but his personality tends to have him be 'into shit for a minute'. Aside from that, Bill is a licensed helicopter pilot and (amateur) baker, guitarist, drummer, and seems to pick up another hobby every other week.

** He liked the episodes he saw of ''WebComic/OnePunchMan'', seeing a lot of himself in protagonist Saitama as a guy who was completely and utterly bored with life.

** He once did a routine about a terminally ill man who tried to kill himself by jumping out of a helicopter over the ocean, but lived. He crosses between sympathizing with the helicopter pilot (who had, according to Burr, started just five days earlier), and praising the jumper as taking control of his life.
