Bill Burr rails against the “nerds” of “Alternative Comedy”

On Bill Burr’s “Monday Morning Podcast,” Burr went off on a bit of a rant against the rise of nerds in comedy and how the so-called “alternative comedy” scene made it seem as though anyone could be a stand-up comedian. He really seems to be angrier about how “alt-comics” take shots at “club comics,” especially when they end up on bills together.

Roll the clip. Where do you weigh in on this? Language is NSFW. Note: Even Burr knows he’s over-generalizing here.
