Disney has announced details on a brand new stand-up comedy special featuring Bill Burr, will be coming soon to Hulu and Hulu On Disney+ in the United States and on Disney+ internationally.

An Emmy and GRAMMY Award nominee, Burr is regarded as a singular voice of his generation, defining his own path as a world-renowned comedian, director/writer/producer/star of a No. 1 film on Netflix, critically acclaimed dramatic and comedic actor, writer, producer and a genre-defining podcaster. In 2024, Burr is touring arenas and theatres with his Bill Burr Live tour.

He performed at Gillette Stadium for Tom Brady’s induction into the Patriot’s Hall of Fame and can be seen as JFK in Jerry Seinfeld’s Netflix film, “Unfrosted: The Pop-Tart Story.” In October, Burr’s film “Old Dads,” which he directed, co-wrote and stars in, premiered as the No. 1 film globally on Netflix for two straight weeks and had over 40 million streams. Other film roles include “LEO” alongside Adam Sandler, “The King of Staten Island” with Pete Davidson and Marisa Tomei, and “The Frontrunner” starring Hugh Jackman. Burr’s TV roles include his scene-stealing, fan-favourite role as Migs Mayfeld in “The Mandalorian”; Coach Bobson on the hit FX on Hulu series, “Reservation Dogs”; and Saul Goodman’s henchman, Kuby on “Breaking Bad.” In 2023, Burr was the first comedian to perform at the 5,000-seat ancient Roman amphitheater, The Odeon of Herodes Atticus in Athens, Greece; and in 2022, he made history as the first comedian to perform at Fenway Park.

Hulu’s new comedy brand will bow in November with Jim Gaffigan and additional comics will be announced at a future date with launch dates for those specials and other information to follow. Hulu will additionally launch a curated collection of licensed stand-up specials ranging from iconic comedy specials to recent releases from 800 Pound Gorilla and Comedy Dynamics, among others.

This will be Bill Burr’s eighth stand-up special, and the launch date will be announced at a later date.

Roger’s Take: It’s great to see Disney starting to take stand-up comedy seriously and investing more in comedy, especially as Netflix has had so much success with the format, and these shows are going to be much cheaper to produce while also providing more choice for subscribers.
