While the rest of us were hunkered down during 2020 watching Netflix, Boston native Bill Burr was a busy man. He was in, "The King of Staten Island," hosted Saturday Night Live, where he made a hilarious Sam Adams Beer spoof ad, and he played Migs Mayfield on the Star Wars series, "The Mandelorian."

During an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, he was asked about Star Wars fans who have questioned how a character could have a Boston accent. Among other things he said, “Eff those nerdy, nitpicking nerds.” Spoken like a true Bostonian! Watch him ramp up, and if you have time, watch the whole clip from the beginning, LOL!
