With spring in the air, students from all over campus crowded the Morgan Student Center ecstatic for Friday's comedian. As the minutes ticked by excitement filled the air until, at last, Steve Burr took the stage.

For over 60 minutes the room shook with laughter, even drawing the attention of a firefighter's banquet being held in the room above. Burr broke up the crowd by saying, "we should pull the fire alarm just to (mess) with them".

I had the chance to speak with him after his set and he had this response to why he likes performing, "I like the freedom and it keeps me from working a normal 9 to 5 job, also I get to be my own boss."

Overall it was a great show and everyone looked forward to Steve coming back.

"Steve was wicked funny" - Melissa Dunsing - student


"Apparently this is where they hide us," according to comedian Steve Burr who visited Clarkson University Saturday night. The evening started with the usual jokes about how Clarkson is out in the middle of nowhere and Route 11 is the loneliest drive known to man, but Burr's show received a large crowd, as well as a high round of applause for his comedy routine.

What made Steve Burr funny to listen to was his ability to converse with the audience about a variety of topics. Whether it was about the lack of girls on campus, ROTC Air Force or trying to convince the pizza ladies for a free pie, which he succeeded in doing, his routine was filled with the typical comedic jokes used at colleges: girls, the college, drinking, sex... the list could continue, although Burr seemed to like the topic of sex best, as those who went to the show would know. His jokes were cleaner than most comedians though.

A lot of his routine was done making conversation with the audience and moving at a fast pace, which did not let the hour show drag at all. He was always quick to interject a funny personal anecdote or some observation, like his jokes about the mattress created by NASA that does not disturb things if you move.

A round of applause for Steve Burr! If you get a chance to see this comedian, he is definitely worth it if you know how to have fun and laugh.

Bio

Steve Burr is originally from Rochester, NY where he began his stand-up comedy career with a first place finish in the 1998 "Funniest Person in Rochester Contest". From that moment on his hunger for the spotlight was born. Over the next few years Steve honed his comedy skills buy going to as many open mic nights as he could find, as well as participating in comedy contests and by testing material on his long-suffering friends. From there he slowly worked his way up the comedy club ladder, selling tickets, seating people, serving drinks, doing guest spots and hosting, eventually arriving at his current position as a headlining comic who tours across the country. It doesn't just end there though...

Steve also makes regular trips overseas to entertain US troops stationed in places such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Kuwait, Italy & Germany. In addition to his performing duties he is also the host and creator of his own iTunes podcast called "3 Things You Never Talk About" and can soon be seen filling the same role on a new program for the Turner Network called "Odd America".

Steve's interest in being a comedian stems from his overwhelming lack of success in all other careers he has attempted. From the unsteady hands that resulted in his failure as a neurosurgeon to the depth perception problem that led to his downfall as a paratrooper, he has been fired or let go from almost every job he's held. Comedy is really all that's left. Luckily though, Steve sees to have found his niche.

Realizing that when people go to a comedy show they are there for one reason...to laugh, Steve very naturally gets them to do just that. Combining great story telling, everyday observations, interaction with the audience and the simple desire to have fun, Steve brings the complete comedy package to the stage. He likes to give everyone a night away from it all and uses his personal brand of hilarity to do just that. He always seems to be having the best time on stage and with his silly antics you can't help but like him. So if you're looking for some good, clean fun, something a little different than anything you've experienced before, spend some time with Steve Burr and let the roller coaster ride begin.
