Get ready for spicy takes.
Outspoken comedian Bill Burr is taking off on a quick eight-show arena tour from March through August this year.
Midway through the short run of gigs, he’ll perform his audacious brand of comedy at Newark’s Prudential Center on June 24.
Other notable stops include Los Angeles on March 21, Las Vegas on May 6 and Springfield, MA on Aug. 12.
The 54-year-old Massachusetts native is coming off a big 2022 too — last August, he became the first comedian to headline Boston’s Fenway Park.
Still, he has a simple credo for each show.
“I just want to make you laugh. That’s all I’m trying to do,” he told the Boston Globe.

Bill Burr upcoming projects
If it seems like Burr is showing up in every movie or TV show you see these days, you wouldn’t be wrong.
These past few years, he appeared in Pete Davidson’s semi-autobiographical film “King Of Staten Island” as well as TV shows like Disney +’s “The Mandalorian,” Netflix’s “F Is For Family,” FX’s “Reservation Dogs” and the Roku Channel’s “Immoral Compass.”
There’s more to come though.
Here’s a quick peek at what’s next for Burr.
“Leo” tells the story of a septuagenarian lizard named Leo (Adam Sandler). All is right in the world until he and his turtle friend bust out of a Florida school classroom. The star-studded cast is rounded out by Stephanie Hsu, Heidi Gardner, Jason Alexander, Cecily Strong and Robert Smigel.
“Hate To See You Go” stars Morgan Freeman as an aging Chicago blues musician who refuses to retire and returns to the road. Freeman and Burr will be joined by Alfre Woodard and Common in the film.
“Old Dads” is Burr’s directorial debut. The comedy pokes fun at three, well-to-do Gen X best friends who sell their company to a Millennial. Over the course of the flick, the pals discover they have a lot to learn about the constantly evolving world. Comedy ringers Rachael Harris, Katie Asleton, Bobby Cannavale, Josh Brener, Rory Scovel and Natasha Leggero co-star.
“Drugstore June” puts a girl who lives at home with her parents front and center to solve the crime of a small town pharmacy robbery. All the while, she’s doing her best to move on from her ex and grow up. Familiar faces in the cast include Haley Joel Osment, Beverly D’Angelo, Bobby Lee, Matt Walsh and Al Madrigal.
