        Bill used the term Paper Tiger about the state of political debates / animosity in another Joe Rogan interview

          Paper tiger is hilarious. SJWs and leftist will hate it though.

            He's great but I have no idea what his explanation is supposed to mean

              This is bill's second best special, second only to 'walk your way out' but its damn near the same level

                Imagine that a comedian has to apologize for his humour!!! Where's Don Rickles???!!!! When you insult EVERYBODY; you can't miss the JOKE. IT's a fucking JOKE!!!! Get over it. Or pay$150 an hr because your traumatized by this.
                Fuck off & get a life

                        This special was killer. It made me laugh harder than even Chappelle's!

                          "Paper tiger" is a literal English translation of the Chinese phrase zhilaohu. The term refers to something or someone that claims or appears to be powerful and/or threatening, but is actually ineffectual and unable to withstand challenge.

                            it's was terrible, i enjoyed the last episode of his podcast more than his special, he repeats same shit, and overdoing it.

                              Truth is there isn't much to worry about so we invent things, fake emergencies.

                                His special was okay. The last 2 he’s done have just been okay. He’s one of the top 3 comics out there, but I was disappointed that he repeated alot of his material with just a slightly different punch line.

                                  I really appreciate Bill and Dave’s honesty, we need to take modern “problems” less seriously

                                      Bill’s special was fantastic- his best work so far and I even liked it a little more than Chappelle’s new one.

                                        Bill Burr is my favorite comedian and I’ll be honest and say this was by far his worst special of all time.

                                            I don’t I expected something from ol’ Billie.. he repeated a bit or two the bits of him and his wife are predictable .. the sex robot bit where he does the impressions were funny

                                              Just recently saw Bill's comedy act's , it's fucking fantastic. I know Joe's a big fan of Bill , respect , admire whatever you want to call it. Comedians have been a center for the reconstruction that is our outdated psyche-outdated in comparison to how much faster our technology is moving than the core of our psychological movement and comedians the really good ones like Bill , George etc have tuned us into a more grounded frequency , also your every day comedians that don't do stand up also contribute.

                                                  I saw paper tiger today and... Bill Burr is a goddam pro comic. No bullshit. He's filming his special so dealing with that pressure and handles hecklers so smoothly while making it hilarious and doesn't miss a beat in his material. Fucking PRO.

                                                        Bill Burr is no longer bold or daring which is sad for me and I imagine most of his fans feel the same way.

I can see him getting softer and softer with his jokes tho. Scared to offend black people and scared to offend women and scared to offend gays. You can just feel him tensing up and choosing his words so carefully when before it kinda seemed like he would just let it fly. Stop giving a fuck man just let it fly. Havent seen his special yet

We need people like this to stand up to the P.C. Overlords. Never forget people like Lenny Bruce and George Carlin that stood up to the establishment.
