Bill Burr has taken the internet by storm once again after viewers heard his take on abortion in his Live at Red Rocks Netflix special. The comedian used a birthday cake analogy while commenting on some people’s take on the topic.

Bill Burr’s new Netflix show is being discussed on social media ever since its release. The special came out on July 12th and sees Bill talking about a variety of topics, ranging from feminism, COVID-19, and eating mushrooms to abortion.


Bill brought up the topic of abortion during the last five minutes of his Netflix show and his comments have gone viral on social media.

“Before I get out of here, let’s bring the room together. It’s a very divisive time,” the comedian says opening up on the subject.

“Let’s do a nice, normal, mainstream topic. Let’s talk abortion.”

He also warns fans about having a very weird take on abortion.

“Pro-choice always makes sense to me because I don’t like people telling me what to do, and I was just like, it’s your body. Who the f**k am I to tell you what to do with your body,” the 54-year-old says.

However, in the next moment, he says: “I still think you’re killing a baby,” making the whole room go quiet. “See? That’s where it gets weird,” he says.

He says how sitting on the fence helps him make sense of the topic. He also says that the argument ‘it’s not a baby yet’ does not make any sense to him.


Bill Burr proceeds to compare abortion to ruining a cake.

“If I was making a cake, and I poured some batter into a pan, and I put it in the oven, and then five minutes later, you came by, and you grabbed the pan, and you threw it across the floor,” Burr began.

“And I went, ‘What the f**k? You just ruined my birthday cake.’ And you were like, ‘That wasn’t cake, yet.’”

He continues: “Well, it would have been if you didn’t just do what you just did. “There would have been a cake in 50 minutes. Something happened to the cake, you cake-murdering son of a b****.”
