On a recent Your Mom’s House episode with Tom Segura and Christina Pazsitzk, Bill Burr revealed that his role as Migs Mayfield on The Mandalorian was largely due to his stand-up comedy background.

In the past, a lot of his comedy gigs would see Burr roast Star Wars fans. When asked how his stand-up was related to his role on the Disney+ series, Burr told the story of Mike Binder’s birthday party, where he met up with Jon Favreau. Burr goes into the conversation they had and shared, “[Favreau] said, ‘Hey, we’re writing this thing. We kind of have you in mind. Do you want to do it?’ And I said, ‘I don’t know, Jon. I have teased Star Wars people a lot.’ He goes, ‘I know. I listen to the podcast a lot. I think it would be funny if you got in it.’ My wife was kicking me under the table and I was like, ‘All right, I’ll do it.’”

When speaking with Segura and Pazsitzk, Burr also took the time to clarify his stance on Star Wars fans explaining that he does not actually have anything against the franchise, “I was just hating on it as a comic. You see 1,000 people excited about something, you’re going to make fun of it.”
