  • -My next guest is a Grammy-nominated comedian

  • and a very talented actor who has received rave reviews

  • for his work in the film "The King of Staten Island,"

  • streaming now on HBO Max.

  • You can also see him

  • in the blockbuster show "The Mandalorian" on Disney+.

  • This dude is knocking it out of the park.

  • He's one of my favorites.

  • Here is Bill Burr!

  • Oho, oh, look at -- -Jimmy.

  • -Look at you. -How are you?

  • -Oh, it's good to -- -I love that

  • you did the audience applaud -- applause for everybody.

  • "Yeah, there he is! Come on!

  • Keep it going for him!" [ Both laugh ]

  • -I can't help myself. It's a -- It's a -- It's a thing.

  • I'm just used to doing it, yeah. -It is what it is.

  • Jimmy, I do stand-up now outside, next to highways.

  • -[ Laughs ] -I mean, that's --

  • It just is what it is.

  • Those early shows, when you're battling rush hour,

  • is brutal. -[ Laughs ]

  • -Late at night,

  • when it's just the third shift and drunk drivers,

  • it's not bad -- you can actually hear the crowd.

  • [ Both laugh ]

  • -Yeah, I would -- you would probably take one --

  • like, no -- you -- right?

  • I mean, horns honking -- that's one thing.

  • -Lights flashing.

  • I've got to this point where, actually, when cars pull in,

  • I'm like, "There's too many Priuses.

  • This is gonna be too sensitive a crowd."

  • [ Both laugh ]

  • -This feels like a sequel.

  • -I need a couple of SUVs to balance out the electric cars

  • that I know I can have a fun audience.

  • Too much of either, it's going to be --

  • Too many SUVs, they'll start yelling, "Build the wall."

  • You know? -[ Laughs ] Yes.

  • -Usual. -Do people --

  • I mean, it's unbelievable --

  • do people still get mad at you for saying stuff?

  • They must. -Yeah, like when

  • those nitwits went to the Capitol, right?

  • Everybody was obviously talking about it.

  • Everybody was saying it was the wrong thing to do.

  • So I was doing my podcast.

  • What am I gonna be -- the 9 millionth person to do it?

  • So I just did this little misdirection thing, saying,

  • "You know, it takes a lot to offend me,

  • but what I saw yesterday really sickened me.

  • Those uniforms the Miami Heat wore

  • against the Boston Celtics..."

  • And then I added the same level of being offended

  • that people were about the Capitol.

  • It was completely absurd.

  • But, Jimmy, I'm a clown, okay? -Yeah.

  • -I don't -- I'm not running for office.

  • And these people -- like, half a dozen, dozen people,

  • got -- like, took the time to send me a tweet.

  • Like, one guy, like, sent me a statement to let me know

  • that he was no longer going to be -- after 10 years --

  • it was like he was -- he was giving me his resignation.

  • -[ Laughs ]

  • -That's what I love about social media --

  • it's not like Joe Sixpack has the ego of a celebrity.

  • -Yeah. -Like, he really felt

  • that he needed to make this announcement

  • and everybody else just had to hear it

  • rather than him just moving on to another podcaster.

  • -They asked you -- Somebody said --

  • they were talking about anti-maskers,

  • and that was the whole thing,

  • and should people wear a mask or should not wear a mask?

  • People should wear a mask.

  • -Yeah. -Yes.

  • -That's what the doctors -- that's what they say.

  • So I don't understand why you wouldn't do it.

  • And now they got a vaccine,

  • and people are saying they're not going to do it.

  • I understand people who aren't white

  • saying they're not going to do it,

  • 'cause I wouldn't trust white people at this point, either.

  • But I figured because they started in England,

  • they started with white people, that's a pretty good sign.

  • And -- But I know there's going to be, like,

  • people who don't want to take it.

  • I think, eventually, to get through this,

  • what's going to happen

  • is, like, the CIA is going to have to get in choppers

  • and just, like, be shooting people,

  • like, coming out of food courts with, like, the vaccine --

  • you know, they do it, like -- like, wild boars and stuff.

  • -[ Laughing ] Yeah, exactly. -Just...

  • -That's... -Just make them do it.

  • -Yeah. And if they don't feel it --

  • -You can somehow move on. -Yeah. That's a good idea.

  • Someone's on that right now.

  • 2020, obviously, has been bizarre for a lot of us,

  • but, man, you've been firing on all cylinders.

  • You appeared in a couple episodes

  • in the first two seasons of "Mandalorian,"

  • which I'm like -- I was backtracking in my mind.

  • I go -- I think Favreau loves you, obviously.

  • I think that's what -- I go -- 'Cause I was like,

  • "I love that Bill Burr's crushing this thing."

  • -It really came -- you know, dude, you know the deal.

  • You've done acting. It's all -- They got to write it.

  • If it's not there on the page and then they edit it

  • and they put the music.

  • I just sat there and said what they wrote.

  • So it's really Rick and Jon and all of those guys over there,

  • not to mention their actors.

  • -I heard that some some fans were like,

  • "Hey, why -- why does he have a Boston accent?"

  • -Oh, I know. That's hilarious.

  • "I've never heard a Boston accent in outer space,"

  • is what they say.

  • And I always just go like, "Oh, yeah? What about English?"

  • -[ Laughs ] -Isn't that a little weird?

  • If you went to a galaxy far, far away

  • and you get off, and somebody's like,

  • "Hey, how's it going?" and you totally understand him.

  • -[ Laughs ] -What about the fact that

  • Han Solo is talking to a Bigfoot?

  • He's speaking Bigfoot, Han Solo's speaking English,

  • they never break character, but one keeps going...

  • [ Imitating Wookiee ] -[ Laughs ]

  • And he's like, "I said hit the -- the button, Chewie!"

  • [ Imitating Wookiee ] -[ Laughs ]

  • -And that was all fine. None of that.

  • How about C-3PO with an English accent --

  • that was okay?

  • The guy's been knighted, huh? -Yeah, he's --

  • -He just played Royal Albert Hall,

  • and now he's hanging out with -- with --

  • I almost said "Lynyrd Skynyrd" --

  • Luke Skywalker?

  • -[ Laughs ] Lynyrd Skynyrd.

  • -Yeah, dude.

  • F those nerdy... -Oh. Oh, my gosh.

  • -...nitpicking nerds. -Oh, my gosh.

  • Dude, on top of that, you're -- speaking, of good acting chops,

  • dude, you were great in "King of Staten Island" --

  • Judd Apatow, you, and Marisa Tomei.

  • She was fantastic, too, by the way.

  • -Oh, man, Marisa was unbelievable.

  • -She's fantastic.

  • -She's the -- She's the best I ever worked with.

  • She was un-un-f'ing-believable. -Right.

  • It's almost like -- but, you, too,

  • 'cause I know you, and I'm like --

  • this is like watching it --

  • It's like watching a different dude.

  • It's like watching the two dif-- which is what good acting is.

  • But the dialogue was good, the -- the -- the backstory.

  • -They -- They wrote a -- They wrote a great movie,

  • and they -- you know, and Judd's real cool where it's like --

  • You know, you come up, you do the show,

  • you do the scene -- right? --

  • you do two takes of it the way they wrote it,

  • and then he just kind of comes up and goes,

  • "You know, that little area there --

  • Maybe you want to build that out."

  • And I had -- like, maybe the first week,

  • I had a little anxiety about doing it.

  • I mean, working with Marisa was really intimidating

  • because she just is -- is so, so good.

  • But by like the fourth or fifth day,

  • I kind of realized, like, "Oh, I'm just gonna have fun.

  • This is just -- This is just improv and having fun."

  • But in everybody that I was working with --

  • and, you know, Pete Davidson, is just a really special dude

  • that I met on the way up, and we were always tight.

  • And then that movie just really totally,

  • like, solidified our friendship.

  • So I ended up, you know, gaining, you know,

  • like a lifelong friend out of doing that.

  • And he helped me through "SNL" that week.

  • And I got to work with Steve Buscemi.

  • -You were great on "SNL," too, by the way.

  • Oh, my gosh. -Dom Lombardozzi --

  • I got to work with all these guys I'm fans of,

  • so it was awesome.

  • -Yeah, I like Pete.

  • He's a good dude, man. -He is.

  • -Well, congrats on everything, Bill,

  • and thank you again for coming on, buddy.

  • And I appreciate that... -Coming on, dude?

  • I would do this every night --

  • if I didn't have to go to LAX and get on a plane.

  • -[ Laughs ]

  • I could knock out all the shows just sitting right here.

  • Same black shirt. -[ Laughs ]

  • -"So, Bill, tell us about 'Star Wars.'"

  • "Well, I gotta tell you..." -[ Laughs ]

  • -You're good at it. You're good.

  • Alright. I'll call you tomorrow. -Alright, dude.

  • -Bill Burr, everybody. -Alright, love seeing you.

  • Check him out in "The Mandalorian" on Disney+

  • and "The King of Staten Island" on HBO Max.

-My next guest is a Grammy-nominated comedian
