Bill Burr Bill Burr

The son of a dentist, Bill Burr set out to be a dental hygienist, but that aim fell by the wayside when he tapped his comedic talent at the age of 23.

Born June 10, 1968, in Canton, Mass., Burr is known for his candid observational wit, which he's displayed not only on the club circuit but with television gigs on "Comedy Central Presents," "One Night Stand" and "Late Show with David Letterman." The funnyman also unleashed his biting humor in the 2008 comedy special "Why Do I Do This?"

On a dramatic note, Burr appeared in two fourth-season episodes of the hit cable series "Breaking Bad." His other acting credits include Playing Chicken (2007) and Date Night (opposite Steve Carell). In 2012, he returned to his comic stylings as the star of the stand-up comedy special "Bill Burr: You People Are All the Same."

Date Night

Date Night

2010 PG-13

Who knew simple dinner reservations under a different name could turn one New Jersey couple's date night so terribly upside-down? Claire (Tina Fey) and Phil (Steve Carell) Foster leave their kids with the sitter (Leighton Meester) and head out for a night on the town -- as the Tripplehorns. Shawn Levy (Just Married, Night at the Museum) directs this action-comedy; Mark Wahlberg and James Franco co-star.
