BILL BURR STEALS THE STAGE IN HIS ALL-NEW STAND-UP SPECIAL
"WHY DO I DO THIS?"
WORLD PREMIERING SUNDAY, AUGUST 31 AT 11:00 P.M. ON COMEDY CENTRAL�
NEW YORK, NY, August 12, 2008 -- Comedian Bill Burr takes the stage and tells it like it is in his all-new one-hour stand-up special. �Bill Burr: Why Do I Do This?� world premieres Sunday, August 31 at 11:00 p.m. on COMEDY CENTRAL!
From a stance of �uninformed� logic, Burr confronts racism and homophobia, relationships and over population with a simplistic honesty that is just as relatable as it is hilarious. Burr makes his case against �How to Catch a Predator� as bad PR for white people, shares his views against population control for animals and explains how the Government has used the fast food industry to cover up conspiracies. This is one hour of comedy that is not to be missed.
Having first gained notoriety for his recurring role on the second season of �Chappelle�s Show,� Burr is a regular guest on the �Late Show with David Letterman� and �The Opie & Anthony Show.� He released �Why Do I Do This?� on CD on August 5 and the DVD will be released on September 16. Burr hosts the monthly radio show, �Uninformed,� on XM Satellite Radio and starred in his own HBO �One Night Stand� and �COMEDY CENTRAL Presents� half hour specials. His CD, �Emotionally Unavailable: Expanded Edition,� was released by What Are Records and he has performed on �Late Night with Conan O�Brien,� �Showtime at the Apollo,� BET�s �Comic View� and Jamie Foxx�s �Laffapalooza.� For more on Bill Burr, visit www.BillBurr.com.
