THE KING OF POLITICALLY INCORRECT COMEDY
Founded by entertainment mogul Jarrod Moses and comedy champion Caroline Hirsch in 2004, the New York Comedy Festival highlights the best and brightest of the comedy world, often showcasing over 200 performers in over 60 different shows, from good old fashioned stand-up comedy to podcasts, panels and more! Everyone's favorite opinionated Bostonian Bill Burr takes a break from his current stand-up tour, joining the star-studded roster for one special night only at the historic Madison Square Garden.
Winner of the coveted 17th spot on Rolling Stone's 50 Best Stand-Up Comics of All Time list in 2017, Burr has cultivated a stellar career based on black humour, searing political and social commentary and a knack for speaking before thinking. His bold, unapologetically unapologetic humour has earned him the unofficial title of the 'King of Political Incorrectness' and that's just the way he likes it, balancing a signature grumpy, 'I'm-way-too-old-for-this' persona with relevant reflections on the twisted times we live in. Be warned, this comedian managed to simultaneously press everyone's buttons, with hilarious results.
