From a press release:

Tickets, which are $54.50-$80, go on sale this Friday, Oct. 16 at 10 a.m. Tickets can be purchased at, the Event Center box office,, all Ticketmaster outlets, or by phone at 800-745-3000.

Known for his envelope-pushing and politically incorrect material, Burr has also appeared on several episodes of TV acclaimed series “Breaking Bad,” as well as “The New Girl” and the “Kroll Show,” plus the feature films “Walk of Shame,” “The Heat,” “Date Night,” and “Stand Up Guys.”

Having first gained notoriety for his recurring role on the second season of “Chappelle’s Show,” Burr developed a comedic style of uninformed logic that has made him a regular with David Letterman, Conan O’Brien, and Jimmy Fallon.

He hosts one of the most popular comedy podcasts on the web, “Monday Morning Podcast,” an off-the-cuff, twice-weekly rant that has become a fan favorite. The podcast began in May of 2007 and has more than 400 episodes.

His stand-up shows sell out theaters and arenas, both in the states and internationally. He has played to rave reviews in London, Glasgow, Dublin, Amsterdam, Helsinki, Copenhagen, Oslo, Stockholm, Reykjavik, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Mumbai, while appearing for audiences at venues like Madison Square Garden back at home.

Burr most recently premiered his fourth hour-long special, “I’m Sorry You Feel That Way,” on Netflix and released the vinyl album, “Live at Andrew’s House,” a recording of his 2011 Carnegie Hall performance, through Third Man Records. In July of 2014, he received the Stand-up Comedian of the Year Award from the prestigious Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal.
