We often get suggestions to bring this or that comedian to Belgium, so we are very happy to announce the upcoming show of one of the most requested names: Bill Burr! He is one of the top comedic voices of his generation achieving success in TV and film as well as live on stage. Selling out theaters internationally, Bill is a regular with Conan O’Brien and Jimmy Fallon and his Monday Morning Podcast is one of the most downloaded comedy podcasts on iTunes. In 2014 he premiered his fourth hour-long comedy special I’m Sorry You Feel That Way on Netflix and the following year, he made his first tour of theaters in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong and Mumbai.
The American comedian, writer, and actor is the brain behind the animated Netflix series F Is For Family featuring Bill, Laura Dern and Justin Long as the Murphy family. He was seen in the Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell film Daddy’s Home and co-stars opposite Kevin Costner in the indie film Black or White. Bill received raves for his recurring role as “Kuby” in Breaking Bad; he was seen in The Heat alongside Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy, and in the Al Pacino and Christopher Walken film Stand Up Guys. This August you finally get the chance to see him live on stage in Belgium!
Opening for Bill Burr is English talent Dane Baptiste! His debut show Citizen Dane was an incredible success and got him nominated for Best Newcomer at both the Foster’s Comedy Awards at 2014’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival and again in 2015’s Chortle Awards. He has also written and starred in his own sitcom Sunny D for the BBC and performed at the Melbourne Comedy Festival. In 2014 he opened for nobody less than Eddie Griffin!
