TBT: Young Bill Burr in a 90's Sitcom is Magic (Video)
It is hard to imagine Bill Burr in any situation other than as a snarky stand-up comedian with strong opinions, a stronger accent, and maybe the strongest comedy podcast in existence. He was recently rewarded for his hard work his own hilarious Netflix animated series F is For Family which has given him to opportunity to show off his voiceover acting chops, but did you know that he was in a short-lived 90's sitcom called Townies as one of the primary characters? Even with a star studded cast including the likes of Jenna Elfman, Molly Ringwald, Lauren Graham (yes from Gilmore Girls), and Ron Livingston (from Office Space).
The show couldn't quite get off the ground, but all of the actors went on to be pretty big stars eventually. It is incredibly weird seeing Bill Burr listed in the credits as "Billy Burr", but not even close to being as weird as seeing him with a full head of hair, and in a love angle with the incredibly hot Lauren Graham. The show got cancelled and Bill went on to struggle for many years working junk comedy clubs and strips malls, but all's well that ends well as Burr has fast become one of the hottest acts in comedy. Enjoy the footage from Ol' Billy Redface's past!
