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.
