Bill Burr was born in Canton, a town that's part of greater Boston, Massachusetts, and also lived there when he graduated from Emerson College with a bachelor's degree in radio in 1993. He briefly had a warehouse job as a forklift driver before moving to New York City in 1994 in order to pursue his stand-up comedy career. Bill Burr first performed stand-up on March 2, 1992, and kept performing at new venues in New York City when in 1996, he had his first TV appearance in Comics Come Home 2. In the same year, he was cast as Ryan Callahan in the sitcom Townies. After that, he had some smaller roles in a few other TV shows and films and released his first comedy album named Emotionally Unavailable in 2003. He would continue performing and releasing a special every few years and started his Monday Morning Podcast in 2007 alongside his stand-up comedy career. In his weekly podcast, he talks about his everyday experiences, sports, politics, and answers questions from listeners. With the success of his podcast, he later added a half-hour Thursday Afternoon Monday Morning Podcast and co-founded his own network called All Things Comedy in 2012.
