Koury Angelo Comedy Matters Bill Burr on Family, Funnies and the 505 Bill Burr is an irritated comedian whose tone of voice is perpetually stuck in between laughing and yelling. He'll be in town to rile up audiences at the Route 66 Casino (14500 Central Ave. SW) on Friday, Dec. 1. Between his popular Monday Morning Podcast , raising a new kid and filming his new special, “Walk Your Way Out” (currently streaming on Netflix) , we were able to get him on the phone to chat about his experiences in the 505, his new show, “F is for Family,” and some conspiracy theories.

Weird Wonders Taming of the Ostrich
A few years ago I was walking around my neighborhood, minding my own business. Two men whom I had never seen before approached me, speaking a strange language.
“Who are they? What do they want? Are they a threat?” I wondered silently and watched them from the corner of my eye.
The one closer to me held a stick by his face and it began to make noise. I was in shock.
“What is this? Witchcraft?” I reeled. Then it became pleasant. I lost myself in the whistling. I began to dance in a way I never had before. I was mystified. It was like my consciousness had been taken over by a higher power.
I regained my footing and left as the man nearest to me shouted something in a pleasant tone.
I will never forget that day.
