Comedy is coming to Fenway Park.
Bill Burr is coming to Boston, where he will be the first comedian to hold a show at Fenway Park, according to Live Nation. The show, part of the comedian's Bill Burr (Slight Return) North American tour, is set for Sunday, August 21.
"I started doing stand-up in Boston 30 years ago,” Burr said in a media release. “Never imagined it would lead to Fenway. Kind of speechless, which is rare for a big mouth like me."
