        Bill’s lost his edge. His last two specials sucked. Living in LA and having a kid has turned Bill into a fuckin pussy

            We need the biggest punch from Louis CK. If he plays his cards right, he is gonna change the comedy industry.

                    People tend to project their hatred toward others that they hate within themselves.

                            Bill used the term Paper Tiger about the state of political debates / animosity in another Joe Rogan interview

                              Paper tiger is hilarious. SJWs and leftist will hate it though.

                                            This special was killer. It made me laugh harder than even Chappelle's!

                                              "Paper tiger" is a literal English translation of the Chinese phrase zhilaohu. The term refers to something or someone that claims or appears to be powerful and/or threatening, but is actually ineffectual and unable to withstand challenge.

                                                it's was terrible, i enjoyed the last episode of his podcast more than his special, he repeats same shit, and overdoing it.

                                                  Truth is there isn't much to worry about so we invent things, fake emergencies.

                                                    His special was okay. The last 2 he’s done have just been okay. He’s one of the top 3 comics out there, but I was disappointed that he repeated alot of his material with just a slightly different punch line.

                                                      I really appreciate Bill and Dave’s honesty, we need to take modern “problems” less seriously

                                                          Bill’s special was fantastic- his best work so far and I even liked it a little more than Chappelle’s new one.

                                                            Bill Burr is my favorite comedian and I’ll be honest and say this was by far his worst special of all time.

                                                              This special was one of the funniest ones I've ever watched

I know Joe's a big fan of Bill , respect , admire whatever you want to call it. Comedians have been a center for the reconstruction that is our outdated psyche-outdated in comparison to how much faster our technology is moving than the core of our psychological movement and comedians the really good ones like Bill , George etc have tuned us into a more grounded frequency , also your every day comedians that don't do stand up also contribute.

He's filming his special so dealing with that pressure and handles hecklers so smoothly while making it hilarious and doesn't miss a beat in his material. Fucking PRO.
