Bill Burr is the most “undeniable,” on-the-mark comedian of our cultural revolution. His diagnosis, prognosis and prescription are spot-on for what ails the feverishly woke American mind.

Ladies & Gentlemen, PM is honored to name William “Frederick” Burr the first-ever recipient of Planned Man’s Lenny Bruce Award.

Details of the red-carpet LBA ceremony are fluid at the moment, due to changing COVID restrictions. Sign up for alerts here.

Bill Burr is PM’s favorite comedian in our woke, brain-dead moment in time—one that needs to pass. Our ginger friend has a most-needed soul.

But first, a word of about Lenny The Bruce: there once existed a comedian with huge balls and a set of free-speech principles to match—back in the days, which are captured by The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (a must-watch series on Prime).

Lenny Bruce was the first of a Few Good Men on that proverbial wall, defending free speech by pushing it—before George Carlin and his famous list of seven, dirty words you can’t say on TV.

Bruce’s stand-up was designed to get him pulled down and handcuffed. Bruce would have been an historic American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) lawyer, had he excelled in law school. He instead was a comedian for the organization.

There was a time when the ACLU defended the likes of Lenny Bruce. The entity sadly is currently a proponent of Cancel Culture.

But comedy has a new hero fighting the censors—Bill Burr, who’s a little better (and funnier) than Lenny Bruce. (He’s also more courageous.)

Bill Burr is the finger-flipping comedian doing stand-up in a free-fire zone—The Bruce masterfully offended middle-class sensibilities and local cops—while the ACLU is worse than absent. Commitments to free speech and free love are not as enduring and guaranteed as we once-upon-a-short-time-ago hoped.

Burr’s ground-zero, piss-your-pants humor helps the free-speech cause. He’s the funniest comedian we have—but you don’t have to take my word that he is crushing it.

Burr is the most “undeniable,” on-the-mark comedian of our cultural revolution. His diagnosis, prognosis and prescription are spot-on for what ails the feverishly woke American mind.

Reed Hastings, if you’re reading this, I love your company’s programming. Netflix has a “mirror, mirror, on the wall” quality. Viewers of your entertainment looking-glass will find hours of content at great price points. Please stay true to the secret of your success. (Don’t go the way of ESPN!) Fortunately for you, Burr has created a solution producing a pipeline of talent with whom to spot check your woke commissars.

Burr is taking advantage of a marketplace that’s serving neither artists nor audiences—with his own digital channel, All Things Comedy—like that other Masshole at Barstool Sports.

His Monday Morning podcast, which is a hilarious twice weekly, gives unfiltered access to one of America’s greatest comedian’s creative process—“Watch out, Joe Rogan.”

True Story: Burr’s agent texted my buddy’s agent (a guy with fuck-you money) a fuck-off price for a party of 10 in Vegas. My Guy, after a must-watch suggestion, tried to see if Burr really hated doing private parties as much as he claimed. Burr’s agent’s text reply to my buddy: “$200K.”

(Check out what Burr had to say on the chick who flicked his dick and ruined him for private parties, if you want to know who hurt him so much that he would pass up $200K.)

Burr is the most “undeniable,” on-the-mark comedian of our cultural revolution. His diagnosis, prognosis and prescription are spot-on for what ails the feverishly woke American mind.

 

Just watch the opening of Burr’s Netflix special, Paper Tiger, and you’ll get his introduction joke heard around the world!

Bill Burr is the cure for woke cancer.  

What’s a Planned Man to do? Lenny Bruce died poor. We owe it to ourselves and country to make incredibly rich this Masshole with an undeniably necessary soul. See below, for how you can help the cause.

Best,
Guy
