Bill Burr has signed with WME in all areas, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The comedian is the first of WME comedy touring head Mike Berkowitz’s clients to bring all of his or her business to the agency since Berkowitz moved from APA last month. At the time, Burr, as with much of Berkowitz’s roster of clients, had signed with WME for touring only.
The stand-up comic, who has sold out Madison Square Garden, is currently on tour. He also continues to record his popular Monday Morning Podcast, part of Burr’s All Things Comedy podcast network. In addition, he co-created and stars in the animated comedy F Is for Family, which Netflix has renewed for a third season. His other notable television credits include Comedy Central’s Kroll Show (where he recurred as Detective Smart) and AMC’s Breaking Bad (where he played Kuby). Burr’s film appearances include Daddy’s Home, Walk of Shame, The Heat and Date Night.
In a departure from comedy, he’s set to portray 1972 Democratic presidential nominee George McGovern in Jason Reitman’s The Front Runner, about the sex scandal that toppled politician Gary Hart’s (Hugh Jackman) presidential dreams.
Burr continues to be represented by 3 Arts and Cohen & Gardner.
