...we need to address the gender gap in journalism.

Mr. Burr, 45, has been one of the funniest, most distinctive voices in the country for years.

[...]

The heart of his comedy gives voice to the aggrieved confusion of the white heterosexual guy adrift. At times, he expresses it through outrageous nostalgia. “Where are all those old-school women you can just take your day out on?” he asked on his 2012 special “You People Are All the Same.” “When did they stop making those angels? What a luxury — to fail all day, then download all your insecurities on this other person.”

Thanks for helping to keep comedy white and male, Jason Zinoman.

ETA: I love my cat...
