Bill Burr will premiere his next special as part of Hulu’s new standup comedy brand, the streamer announced July 10.

Taped in late June at the Moore Theatre in Seattle, Burr’s eighth standup special will launch on Hulu, as well as on Disney+ outside the U.S. The special’s title, launch date on platforms and other information will be announced at a later date. The special joins Jim Gaffigan’s special, “The Skinny,” which will stream in November as the first in a series of monthly standup comedy specials Hulu announced in May.

Burr this year is touring arenas and theaters with his Bill Burr Live tour. He performed at Gillette Stadium for Tom Brady’s induction into the Patriots’ Hall of Fame and can be seen as John F. Kennedy in Jerry Seinfeld’s Netflix film, Unfrosted: The Pop-Tart Story.

Last 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 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.” 

As Media Play News previously reported, Hulu’s new comedy brand will bow in November with the Jim Gaffigan special. 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 standup specials ranging from iconic comedy specials to recent releases from 800 Pound Gorilla and Comedy Dynamics, among others.
