From a press release:

It was announced today that comedian, actor, and podcast host Bill Burr will perform at the Giant Center in Hershey on Thursday, June 22 at 8 p.m.

As an Emmy and Grammy nominated comic, Burr is considered one of the top comedic voices of his generation, achieving success in television and film as well as on stage. He sells out theaters internationally, and his “Monday Morning Podcast” is one of the most downloaded comedy podcasts.

His arena and amphitheater tour “Bill Burr (Slight Return)” traveled across North America throughout 2022, including a performance in Wilkes-Barre at Mohegan Sun Arena. On Aug. 21, he made history as the first comedian to perform at Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox.

He will voice a starring role in Adam Sandler’s upcoming animated film “Leo,” premiering Nov. 22 on Netflix. Miramax and Burr’s All Things Comedy are producing the film “Old Dads,” which he co-wrote, directed, and will star in alongside Bobby Cannavale and Bokeem Woodbine.

Last year, he premiered the Netflix special “Bill Burr: Live at Red Rocks,” which was shot in October of 2021 at the legendary Colorado venue, and he hosted the Netflix special “Bill Burr Presents: Friends Who Kill.”

The 54-year-old Massachusetts native was nominated for a 2020 Grammy Award for his album “Paper Tiger,” and he was nominated for a 2022 Emmy Award for Outstanding Actor in a Short Form Comedy or Drama Series for his Roku Channel series “Bill Burr Presents: Immoral Compass,” which is free to stream online.

His animated Netflix series “F Is for Family” stars himself alongside Laura Dern, Justin Long, and Sam Rockwell; its fifth and final season premiered on Thanksgiving Day in 2021.
