Boston comedy hero Bill Burr this week set the Wilbur Theatre’s record for consecutive sold-out shows. The Canton native (right, with Bill Blumenreich at the Wilbur) performed 19 sold-out shows in a row, besting the record of 10 set by Aziz Ansari. The theater dedicated a permanent seat to Burr on Monday evening just before his final gigs. Ansari got his own dedicated seat when he set the record last May.
