Lola Burr And The Story Of Late Fatherhood

Who is Lola Burr

  • Lola Burr is the daughter and only child of famous comedian Bill Burr and his black wife, Nia Renee. She is therefore biracial. 

How many of you know the baby named Lola Burr? Even if you are unaware of her existence, the father’s fame is all it takes to correct that information gap.

She is a product of love. One that came a bit late. But a love story that will never end because the very existence of life itself is a cosmic pronouncement of love. A love that will always exist in the heart of her parents.

So simply put, Lola Burr is the daughter and only child of  American stand-up comedian, actor, and podcaster Bill Burr and his wife Nia Renee. The beautiful baby girl was ushered into the world on January 20, 2017. And her father is doing everything possible to hide her face from the public.

Which also translate to the fact that the comedian wants to protect his daughter from the prying eyes of the public and possibly media outlets that can’t wait to spin a story with her face on it. She is three years already and her parents are still not ready with revealing her face to the public.

Lola BurrThe baby girl is already affecting her dad on different levels and his comedy routine is not exempted.

In an interview that he granted  The Wrap the comedian talked about how he made last-minute changes to his material for the Paper Tiger special due to thinking about how his jokes would affect his daughter one day.

“I’ve never really thought about it, but I just know a closer when I hear it coming out of my mouth,” he said. “I’m like,

 ‘This is something I can close with,’” Burr said.

“I’ll be honest with you: I had a different closer for this hour almost right until the night we taped. I called an audible because the joke was about my daughter being born and me feeling some crazy feelings, and I just thought it would hurt her feelings if she ever saw it. It was more my issue, but I was just worried she wouldn’t process it that way. And I would never want to hurt her, so I was just like, ‘I don’t need to do that.’”

The baby is obviously biracial as her mother is a woman of color. So who is Nia Renee? Nia Renee is more than just a house wife even though it has been reported that she spends a lot of time with her daughter. A ritual that Bill Burr is also involved in.

She is known for her work on Lila, Long Distance (2011), Did You Look for Work This Week? ( 2012) and Santa Clarita Diet (2017). She has been married to Bill Burr since September 2013. On the show F Is For Family (   ) she plays the role of Georgia Roosevelt, a character that was written for by her husband, who is one of the creators of the show. Now Lets Talk About Bill Burr He is of German and Irish descent.Lola Burr

He graduated from high school in 1987. After which he obtained a bachelor’s degree in radio from Emerson College in Boston, Massachusetts.

He is the son of nurse Linda Ann (née Wigent) and dentist Robert Edmund Burr and was born on June 10, 1968.

And According to Montreal Gazette, was described as “a cynic and a contrarian who has never paid any heed to political correctness”.

The New York Times in 2013 went on to call the comedian “one of the funniest, most distinctive voices in the country for years”. All of which is an attempt to celebrate his comic genius.

His comedy career started in 1992 and his voice was featured in the game Grand Theft Auto IV as Jason Michaels of the biker gang The Lost MC in the mission “No Love Lost”. The comedian has also appeared in the fourth and fifth seasons of AMC’s Breaking Bad as Patrick Kuby.

As well as as Detective Walsh in the movie Date Night. In other words he is a very successful comedian with almost 30 years of experience to his name.

The Lola burr and the story of late fatherhood caption is centered around the comedian who welcomed his baby girl at the ripe age of 48. Before the age of 48, most men must have already given birth to almost all the kids they want if not all.

It is quite unusual to become a father at that age. But then not everyone is on the same path in life.

The whole idea behind this post is to highlight some erroneous views in our society concerning issues of child birth.

Culturally we take it too far with that silent but solid rule that the best time for child bearing is in our 20’s and early 30’s. Here is an American comedian that is successful and known the world over, having his first child in his 40’s.

He is now 51 years old and it doesn’t seem as if the couple is planning to have another child anytime soon. Which is still possible.

And even the idea of having just one child in most cultures, especially in Third World countries is looked at with dissatisfaction.

In those countries, having more than one kid is the best way to continue the bloodline.

The thinking is, should misfortune fall on the family in the form of sudden death, at least one or two kids might survive the onslaught and still continue the business of producing the next generation of family members.

It is important to note, that having just one child is not bad a idea despite the possibility of death wiping out a man’s legacy. If the child can start having his or her own kids on time then even that possibility is cancelled.

Maybe not one child, maybe two. But it is important that Third World countries have it in mind that overpopulation is one of the major issues why poverty is still a fierce force in those societies.

Some Nollywood actors in Nigeria are beginning to follow this same pattern. Having just few kids but making sure they get the best in life. Setting a very valid example to the common man in the street that having a large family without enough material means to cater for them is wrong and should be avoided at all cost.

Here we have Lola Burr come into a family that can actually take care of a dozen kids but instead is deciding to take it slow.

The child would grow up not lacking basic material needs and can actually go for expensive items because her parents don’t have too many mouths to feed. This is one of the lessons to be learnt from Bill Burr’s late entry into the world of fatherhood.

I am not saying you should wait until you are that old before taking the bold step. Personally, i believe the earlier the better.
