Bill Burr Paper Tiger Reddit

STREAM IT IS OUR CALL. Everything is absolutely amusing. Perhaps it is the bottom line. Perhaps it's as easy as that. Perhaps it isn't. This is the world as seen by Burr. You may like part of it or lump some of it together as you see fit. John Serba is a cinema reviewer and freelance writer residing in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Bill Burr's new comedy special Paper Tiger aims to critique the nuances of an increasingly polarized and political American society, but instead bumbles through 67 minutes of awkward, aggressive tabloid humor with only brief respites from what can only be described as an act of dogmatic self-indulgence.

The first part of Paper Tiger is filled with gags against women, feminists, trans people, and political correctness supporters. Burr goes right in, criticizing America's embrace of diversity with sarcastic remarks about placing impaired performers in disabled parts. When the conversation turns sour with rape jokes and mockeries of the #MeToo Movement, it's a swift and ugly downward spiral.

Burr also conveys the impression that some of the permanently awakened's worries are minor in comparison to the more grave risks to mankind, which he views as arising not from climatic disaster but from more sophisticated sex robots turning people against reproduction. This he displays with a delightfully vivid act-out of purchasing and blowing up an old-school inflatable sex doll. Whatever the surprisingly intricate sociology underlying Burr's quickly agitated asshole act, he (nearly) always manages to make it humorous, as one would expect from such a globally recognized comedian.

EverydayBeast said, "I need full information on these comedic special titles (sticks and stones, paper tigers, and so on) since they make no sense." Click to enlarge... "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never destroy my spirit." It's a saying I grew up with. It's often spoken by youngsters after another kid has said something hurtful about them, to demonstrate that they were not damaged by the insult. Of course, words have the potential to do harm. It's simply that selecting where to draw such borders is so subjective. But that is the underlying meaning.
