Dennis talks to comedian Bill Burr about his most recent Netflix special, recently hosting SNL, how people used to never talk politics and now we live in a time where unfunny people try to determine what comedians say, that cancel culture has made him a better comic, and figuring out the business by getting screwed in the business. Bill talks about working with Pete Davidson on Judd Apatow's "King of Staten Island", which reminds Dennis of the time he met Judd early in his career. Bill also talks about performing during the pandemic (including a show on a patch of grass behind a hotel), plus Bert Kreischer, Richard Beler and more! Then, comedian Aaron Berg wishes Dennis well in his retirement, talks about his show "In Hot Water" on Anthony Cumia's Compound Media, his new podcast "Badass Jews" and performing comedy outdoors with Dave Attell.
