Note to comedy junkies: Don't jack with Bill Burr's set. In Tampa recently, a woman in the audience tossed ice at him during his act. Burr figured the authorities would give the attractive ice tosser the usual babe treatment. "Hot girls can say and do dumb shit, and guys don't call them out," he explains, because "they're trying to fuck them."
But to the cynical Burr's surprise, security threw out the offending hottie, and when she tried to apologize afterward, Burr showed her the hand. Seems surprising for a guy who looks like Ron Howard's nephew. But Burr, a veteran of Chappelle's Show and the comedy club circuit, is merciless. Just take his diss on the Olsen twins, who he swears are aliens: "If E.T. was gonna have a threesome, those are the two bitches he'd hook up with." See? Cold.
