[[caption-width-right:305: [[{{CatchPhrase}} Hey, what's going on?]] I'm Bill Burr and it's the [[http://www.billburr.com/podcast Monday Morning Podcast]] ]]
Bill Burr is a short tempered, pasty, alabaster-skinned, freckled, orange-haired stand up comedian from the (safe suburbs of) Boston. His comedy is frequently concerned with the rigid standards imposed on men by the masculine ideal via social conditioning and peer pressure and shows open contempt for the notion that WomenAreWiser. A lot of his material plays on {{Double Standard}}s tropes, distaste of stupid/fat/lazy people. In spite of his words, he is a nice guy, deep down.

Did we mention he's been involved with some amazing shows, like Series/BreakingBad and Series/ChappellesShow?
------

* AllMenArePerverts: Strongly believes that men's greatest weakness is sex drive, but doesn't buy AllWomenArePrudes, just that women control themselves better.
* 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.
** Further, on another episode of his podcast his wife tries to give him a [[SarcasmMode very scientific ADD test out of a magazine.]] [[HilarityEnsues Listening to him try to do the test is priceless.]]
* BerserkButton: [[GoldDigger Gold Diggers]] and unjust divorces.
* CatchPhrase: His Monday Morning Podcast will invariably include one or up to all three of his: LAYDEES!, Oh Jeezus, and Go fuck yourselves.
** "I don't fucking know." is pretty common.
* ClusterFBomb: "Jesus Fucking Christ" and others are not at all uncommon.
* ConspiracyTheorist: He used to be 'deep in the rabbit hole' but he isn't so far down anymore.
* CountryMatters: One of his favorite words, especially on his podcast.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Believes this about most/all corporations, particularly bankers.
* CulturalCringe: "Animals" - his term for (usually fat), stupid, poor-hygiene, generally class-less people he sees on the road. A lot of his early podcasts involve him trashing these animals.
* TheDeterminator: Stand-up comedy aside, being a brutal profession to get started in, he continues to work on his drumming, cooking and self-imposed challenges. It's rare that he doesn't reach the goals he sets for himself.
* DomesticAbuse: Something he hates - "There's lots of reasons to hit a woman, you just don't do it."
** He also contends that women who financially destroy men during divorces are the female equivalent of wife-beaters.
* DoubleStandard: Half of his material at least.
* [[{{Fiery Redhead}} Fiery Redhead]]: No better example of one.
* GuiltyPleasure: Has mentioned loving cigars, mint-chocolate ice cream, drinking and "eating like an animal." when he's "off the wagon."
* HairTriggerTemper
* HeteroSexualLifePartners: Paul Virzi is often mentioned and a sometimes guest on his podcast and seems like Bill's best friend, as they've done a few comedy tours together as well.
* 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.
** To people who take his stand up at face value, if they listen to the podcast long enough most people would realize Bill is empathetic, sensitive, doesn't take himself too seriously and in general is a helluva nice guy, deep down.
* HypocriticalHumor: Frequent, such as when he discussed being pissed off about someone driving slow and awful, then perfectly and guessed that they were texting while driving - which he had done just a few minutes before.
* InsistentTerminology: Justifiably maintains that a comedian cannot "heckle" a crowd, because the crowd is not performing.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Say what you will about his views, words and general demeanor, but he loves his wife, tries genuinely to help people who ask for advice on his podcast, and let's not forget what he contributes in the Annual Patrice O'Neal Benefit.
* MistakenForPedophile / PaedoHunt: Despises the rise of these tropes as a result of ''Series/ToCatchAPredator'', since he loves making children laugh while in public, but this results in the parents getting creeped out.
--> "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."
* MoreDakka: Subverted, Bill thinks the best home defense would be a .22 pistol, because it isn't so loud that it will damage your hearing, and it doesn't have enough power to cause damage/injuries/fatalities outside of your house.
* NWordPrivileges: Averted, he rarely says the word, despite (or because of) his many black friends and the fact that his wife is black.
* OhCrap: He believes that the look of bewildered horror frozen on some elderly men's faces is this reaction, made permanent when their joints give out and it dawns on them that they can't get up and escape their wives' nagging anymore.
* PrecisionFStrike: When he first started, he worked totally clean in his stand-up until the last joke, which he told to make fun of some of the people who came into his day job (at the time) of being a dental assistant:
** Patient: "I don't understand why I keep getting cavities. I brush my teeth almost everyday."
** Burr: "Oh yeah? Do you wipe your ass almost every time you take a shit?"
* RacistGrandma:
** 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 completely accepted all-white baseball leagues (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).
** Another routine deals with his very own grandmother, who didn't react all that well to learn that Bill's girlfriend (now wife) Nia is black.
* RealMenHateAffection: He has a theory that men have a lower average life expectancy than women because of all the stress that builds up from their JerkAss "Dude Bro" friends challenging their sexuality any time they show any signs of caring, kindness or sensitivity, or even intelligence (the umbrella bit).
* RunningGag: Much to his irritation, he seems to always get a heckler in each of the specials he records.
* SelfDeprecation: He has called himself "crazy" or "maniac", often referring to his-own anger issues. In his podcast, he calls himself out on his own hypocrisies seconds after making them, and follows-up his own exaggerations with "I'm full of shit" or similar.
* SelfImposedChallenge: He tends to do these, particularly in regards to fitness or abstinence from alcohol, just to get down to a certain weight, or to see if he can actually do it.
* ShoutOut: Other than literally saying 'this is a shout out', his "Laydies" catch phrase is from Creator/JerryLewis
** He also played a game with [[HeteroSexualLifePartners Virzi]] in which they'd do an impression of Creator/RodneyDangerfield to cope with the stress of being on a long tour in Canada.
* SirSwearsALot
* TakeThat: Famously in Philadelphia. While on tour, he became so enraged at the constant heckling his fellow comedians were taking that he spent his whole set delivering what amounts to an 11 minute combination of a ClusterFBomb and TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to the audience, checking the time each minute and letting the screaming audience know in no uncertain terms that he was going to do all eleven minutes like that. [[RefugeInAudacity In playbacks you can start to hear some cheers among the booing.]]
--> '''Burr''': ''Seven! Seven minutes left, and I'm doing every last goddamn one of them! Fuck you!''
* 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?
* 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.
* TrueCompanions: The tailgate crew from the Rose Bowl (Jason Lawhead, Paul Virzi, etc.) and Lil' Jimmy Norton and Opie and Anthony from their self-named show.
** Patrice O'Neal - to the point that Bill [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming helps organize a fundraiser for the people Patrice left behind after his death]] every year.
* VerbalTic: "Ya know?" And "Right?"
* WomenAreWiser: Has called pop culture on this trope several times. For example, attacking the statement made by OprahWinfrey that [[PanderingToTheBase being a mother was the hardest job in the world]]. "She's not even a mother, how would she know?"
