They say Bill Burr is a Comedian's comedian, in that other stand-up comedy performers study and admire his skill and technique on stage. On March 6th Mr. Burr showed that he's also a people's comedian, smoothly engaging the crowd in the NAC theater as he delivered entirely new material, a lot of it Canada-specific, and went 45 minutes over the 1 hour show time. Certainly it was clear Burr was playing with some new material as he covered topics from ghosts, to the way men and women commit murder, to dictators and their silly antics. Throughout, the crowd was roaring, and I lost my breath several times as Burr dove through his bag of observational humor while offering hilarious impressions of people caught in funny situations. At show's end, Burr conversed directly with the crowd, asking about Canada's different provinces and telling stories about his trip so far. More than worth the money, this show is a must-see and great for a date night. Don't bring kids. Thanks Bill! GFY

5.0 star rating Jerry Fenski from Dallas, Texas


Ok last night in Dallas we witnessed a comic at the top of his game. It felt like he was as much improvising about the crowd and Texas as he was working material. Laughs from start and left wanting more. No question the most solid show I've seen live. All hail Burr.

5.0 star rating Kimberley from Minneapolis, Minnesota


All new material, Bill had everyone laughing from start to finish. The set was tight and ready for a new special. Bill is my favorite comic and never disappoints. His humor is relatable even as a LAYDY and I was cracking up just talking about it later. Would not take children or my mother to the show although the crowd varied in age from early twenties to mid-seventies.

5.0 star rating Kristen from San Francisco, California


Bill Burr hung tight last night in San Francisco at the beautiful Nourse Theater- weaving in between nuance with ease- even amidst some kook heckler. His transparency made him oh so relatable and that spitfire comeback had the crowd rolling. Keep it coming old man. Like a fine wine- you get better with age. The surveyor imitation using the mic stand had us in stitches. Thanks for the orchestral seats - we were anticipating a drumroll by yours truly. Next time, Homey! The gorgeous architecture of the venue was similar to Great American Music Hall or the Warfield. Tastefully antiquated art deco and crown molding framing the large ceiling. Such a classy venue to welcome Mr. Burr back to our beloved SF! I would not bring my daughter nor my Mother. Their skin is a little less thick and minds a bit too prestine for his content.

My introduction to Bill Burr's humor was on Seinfeld's "Comedians in Cars..." Since then, I've loved nearly everything I see him on. I jumped at the chance to see him in person. He was on fire from the moment he walked on stage! He is so comfortable on stage and with the crowd - handled comments from audience brilliantly. He referenced his favorite topics, the ones we've all come to know and love....over-population, oversensitive people, extreme PC....and threw in plenty of current topics that were also tailored to locals/SF. Saw him in the old Nourse Theatre which looked its age, but you forgot all about the hard seats, "grandma's house-smell," and disaster-waiting-to-happen emergency exit layout of the place by Bill's second utterance. But the location of the theater was great (Hayes Valley), surrounded by ample great eateries and good parking options. Not sure i would go out of my way to go to this theater again.....unless Bill Burr came to town! Can't wait to see hi again!

Great performance ! My husband and I came down from Louisville to celebrate our 25th anniversary. We are big fans of Bill Burr and we both felt like he was at his funniest. Well worth the $400 we paid for tickets. We were in center section 5th row. Perfect seats. Can't wait to see him again. ST Louisville, ky

5.0 star rating Wendy Smith from San Francisco, California


San Francisco May 17, 2018 show. If you ever have the pleasure of seeing this qucik witted, candid, side splitting comedian Bill Burr I suggest you do it. It's not very often you are surrounded with laughter from his first joke to the last. Bill Burr is a comedical genius who shot off one hysterical joke after another. Bill Burr for President. Seriously do yourself a favor whoever reads reviews take this to heart and go laugh your ass off seeing this man perform. Thank you Bill I have a great time.

Funny as hell!! Performed longer than thought best $50 spent in a long time!

5.0 star rating David Marshall from Kitchener, Ontario


The Man came to town. How he found Kitchener? Long story but as Bill says, he just jumped on a bus. He used mostly new material from what I could remember. With all the mental fortitude I could muster I tried to remember a hilarious moment near the start of his performance but Bill erased my memory with so many gut-wrenching jokes. Bill craft is near or at the top as he melded Canadian content into his performance and dealt stealth blows to a few loud mouth patrons. I woke the next day as if I had a full blown 80's 20 min workout on my abs and face from laughing so much. Burr's opening acts were also top- notch. I paid about 70 bucks for more than decent seats...great value. The Kitchener theatre is top notch, not sure if there's a bad seat in the house. My second time seeing Bill Burr live, with the first coming in Hamilton a few years ago. He's a must see and he might be just the best out there!

5.0 star rating from Vancouver, British Columbia


Loved the show at Just for Laughs Northwest at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Vancouver, BC yesterday. He did an excellent job of Canadian, local content without being patronizing (I think my favorite treat of the show). His comedy was spot on and as a fan it was awesome to not hear repeat jokes - like many comedians in concert. Truly worth the ticket and the travel!

5.0 star rating Colin Mac from Vancouver, British Columbia


Seen a couple specials on tv a few years back and when I heard he was coming thought great I will go. Caught the ferry got a hotel even took a loss on two tickets I bought for someone else. But man what a show if I was not smiling my checks were stiff from howling to the tear point So glad I went he is good at what he does and would do it again
