Saturday Satire: Comedian Bill Burr on Religion

I have never seen or heard of Bill Burr before this video came up on my YouTube feed, but this is seriously a very funny bit! At under 10 minutes it conveys so much of the frustration people deal with when grappling with the most simplistic understandings of religion especially when young. With gritty honesty, Bill’s raw humor is refreshing.

Also, pay attention to the reaction of the audience – this routine is taking place in Atlanta, a deep-south-bible-belt kind of place, and yet the audience seems to be so reactive to what Bill is saying. I find it telling. (There is no embedding for this video so I am providing the link.) EnJOY!
