Bill Burr And Jim Jefferies Talk About Fatherhood, Internet Comments And ‘Crocodile Dundee’
Bill Burr and Jim Jefferies are two of the most unapologetic comedians on the planet. On Tuesday night, Burr appeared on “The Jim Jefferies Show” on Comedy Central. The 17-minute video goes in numerous directions but maintains a funny take on a myriad of subjects, but it is time well spent. In the video, both of the hilarious and audacious gentlemen discuss topics such as current events, fatherhood, technology, internet comments, the American Dream, and Jefferies explained how at the height of “Crocodile Dundee” and “Yahoo Serious,” those movies and his Australian accent helped him with the ladies.
The duo discussed the scourge that is social media and how it is no longer beneficial to society. The two comedians reflect on how everyone in the world has an opinion and how that might be a bad thing and now everyone comments on every website including porn sites. “I think social media was a good experiment, but it just doesn’t work,” Burr says. “And I don’t think people should be allowed to make comments anymore. I think we need a little more China in our internet.”
Jefferies asked Burr what his political affiliation is and Billy boy said he thought he was liberal until he moved to California and found that some people there are on a “pscyho extra level of liberal.” “They think everything should be is so right because they live next to an ocean,” Burr said. “Second you start living next to the ocean, you start thinking you know things.” Burr talks about planning a vacation to non-white countries but researching the history to see “what did we [white people] do here, how long ago was it, was it from the strain of white people that I’m from.”
“I’m a big believer in helping people that need help, but I’m also a big believer in, at some point, you gotta quit your whining, cause nobody gives a fuck about you or your dream, okay? It’s up to you to care about it, so at the end of the day, you gotta make shit happen,” Burr said.
