Just before comedian Bill Burr performed at the Newport Comedy Series in 2012, he took to the streets of Newport!

In this YouTube video, Burr gives viewers and fans a walking tour of the “illuminati resort town known as Newport, Rhode Island”.

Note: While this video is funny, it is not safe for work.


While Burr is not on the 2015 Newport Comedy Series schedule, there are many other comedians coming to the Hyatt Regency Newport as a part of the series.

Juston McKinney, Ray Harrington, and Mike Donovan perform on July 25; Bob Marley performs on August 14; Kathy Griffin performs twice on August 21; Paula Poundstone performs on October 9; Lenny Clarke with Tony V. will occur on October 16; and Natasha Leggero will perform on November 13.

Tickets are available for all shows at www.newportcomedy.com.
