From his bulldog look, tough-guy bluster and penchant for traditionally red-state viewpoints, at first glance it’s easy to take Bill Burr as the angry guy at the bar, or perhaps another outrage comic in the vein of Lewis Black. But where a bit about parents hugging their children too much or owning a gun for home protection may seem to chart a predictable course, Burr then makes a hard-left for the self-deprecating, the bizarre or, more often than not, the totally original. Stand-up remains Burr’s primary passion, though that hasn’t stopped him from taking on all sorts of other projects. Most visibly is his Monday Morning Podcast, where a typical episode involves “Bill rambling about Hootie and the Blowfish, The Maltese Falcon and eating broccoli.” Those hour-long rants have put Monday Morning alongside WTF with Marc Maron and Comedy Bang Bang as a fixture on the comedy podcast landscape. Known to Breaking Bad fans as Kuby (Saul Goodman’s most competent henchman), Burr recently released the second season of F Is For Family, a semi-autobiographical animated series set in the 1970s. $35-$45, 7pm & 10pm Sun, The Majestic Theatre, 224 E. Houston St., (210) 226-3333, majesticempire.com. — J.D. Swerzenski
