I was surprised when I saw his name on the bumper the previous week. But I agree, he was great (flubbed some lines in a couple of sketches, but a lot of hosts do that).Honestly, I was a little worried that SNL might not be the best place for Bill Burr, but he was charming and still shooting live rounds in every direction. Knowing Burr, this was him at his smoothest and fairly polite, if ya know what he normally does.
No video, sadly, but this podcast excerpt introduces Burr's gnarly Philadelphia performance where he destroys the audience with filth and venom. Really priceless. Set to start just as they introduce the clip.
