Ari Shaffir’s Skeptic Tank #88: Er, Ah Sports with Bill Burr (photoshop by @TheBryanPatrick)

Bill Burr and I sat out on the patio of the Comedy Store one day and talked about Boston Sports. Bill grew up a homer in the homerist city in America. Sports, comedy, and conspiracy theories are all I want to talk to him about. It was a fun discussion and a good hour before we even got to the sports talk.

You can tell this crowd had already been there for hours before he goes up. I saw him work out most of this material around LA. It’s nice to see it in finished form still work on TV.


Check it.


The Music

I used to think Carl Yastrzemski got caught in some sexual thing that kept him out of the Hall of Fame but now I think that was Steve Garvey. Little known fact.


It really sounds like he’s saying Bill Burr sometimes. I gotta get into black music. I have no idea who Gucci Mane is.


Cool song. And they play it at a ton of Boston games. Man, tv used to be so damn weird. Play it till the end and look at the difference between now and then.


I have vague vague memories of having watched this when I was little.

    Been listening for podcasts for about a year now (late bloomer), and this particular one gets the nod. Best ever. These guys are made for each other – not to take away from Patreeky (R.I.P.), Rogan and the rest. This one just clicks!
    God bless, and go fuck yaself.

    OH and Ari – aside from being a funny ‘sum bitch,’ you are the coolest for giving amateurs tips on what it takes to run a ‘cast. You fucking rock!

    I really hope this isn’t all about sports, or what it’s like to be a comedian….cos I have an unlikely fondness of bill burr.
