Race tension in the United States is a serious issue that has been going on for centuries. Nevertheless, the hope is that, with the work done every decade, black and white people can live together amicably with mutual respect for one another. In light of this, it is satisfying to see relationships such as that of Bill Burr and Nia Renee Hill exist.
Bill Burr is one of the most notable comedians in America, particularly among modern-day followers of the craft, and as such, he needs no introduction. His wife, Nia Renee Hill is an actress, who also has a talent for writing. Over the years, she has starred in several films and television shows. Many of us might not be familiar with the wife of the comedian, but we have you covered in this piece.
Who is Nia Renee Hill and How Old is She?
Nia Renee Hill was born to her parents on the 2nd of June, 1969 in Los Angeles, California. Though we lack details on the identity of her parents, they eventually got divorced when she was still young.
When it comes to normal and traditional expectations, Nia’s story hasn’t always fit in. Right from her childhood, the story of Nia’s life has stood out. For example, while divorce almost always sees the mothers get custody of the children and eventually raise them, Nia’s father won custody and raised the actress. Her father is known to have been a manager for comedic acts.
For her education, Nia Renee Hill attended Greensville Country High School in Virginia before she proceeded to Emerson College in Boston. She graduated in 2000, having studied media arts.
Hill’s choice of study in college was down to her passion for the arts. Having appeared in school dramas as a child, she stuck with her interest in entertainment and studied a related course at a higher education level. Following graduation, she began her career in 2001 as a casting assistant, working on The Education of Max Bickford. She later worked as a talent coordinator for an episode of Chappelle’s Show in 2003.
A Closer Look At Her Career Achievements
To most people, Nia Renee Hill is simply the wife of the popular and ever-busy comedian, Bill Burr, who created and stars in F Is For Family. Bill is also currently one of the most popular names in Comedy. It is this large shadow cast by her husband’s success that has left Nia Renee Hill with a reputation as just the wife of the comedian. Yet, Nia has quite a successful career of her own.
Perhaps it was the lack of opportunities or a reluctance to put herself in front of the camera, but she did not star in any production until nine years after her graduation from college. She made her debut in 2009’s Carpool, a short film, as the character Rhonda.
Nia’s Acting Exploits
Her debut role quickly spurred more appearances and she followed it up with an appearance in a television show, Lila, Long Distance in 2011, starring as a recurring character for two episodes. The following year, Hill made another appearance in another short film, Did You Look for Work This Week?
Her first feature-length appearance came in 2013 when she starred as Debbie in Divorce: A Love Story. She appeared in relatively small projects at the beginning of her career but grew in the industry and subsequently got her chance to star in notable projects such as Santa Clarita Diet and F Is for Family where she appears as a recurring character, Georgia Roosevelt. Furthermore, as the wife of Bill Burr, she makes frequent appearances on his popular podcast, Monday Morning Podcast.
She is a Writer on Interracial Relationships
In addition to the work she does behind and in front of the camera, Nia Renee Hill is equally a blogger, making regular contributions to the “Xojane,” – a community and women’s lifestyle website. Being in an interracial marriage makes her better equipped to proffer advice to couples that are into such relationships. However, we can no longer find her piece on the blog site since it went defunct in 2016.
In her write-up, I’m a Black Woman Who Dates White Guys, Hill elaborated on things to say and things not to say to interracial couples.
Nia Renee Hill is also associated with another blog “I Never Thought I Would End Up Here, But Here I Am: My Life as a ‘Kept Woman.’” where she did an exposé of her life at the onset of her career and the changes that followed after meeting her husband. She wrote on the changes she had to effect over the years and the changes that have been made in her relationship with Burr during their time together.
Nia has a presence on both Twitter and Instagram with over 25.5 and 27.5 thousand fans respectively. Her preoccupation with racial injustice leads the wife of Bill Burr to make public announcements on the subject via her social media accounts.
To date, the couple appears to be as engrossed in each other as the day they exchanged marriage vows in 2013, and Burr on his own part never misses an opportunity to talk about his pretty wife.
A Peek at Nia Renee Hill’s financial standing
Bill Burr’s wife has spent over 20 years in Hollywood and one would expect to see the impact in her current financial standing. Her years of hard work and dedication did pay off, and as of late 2019, Nia Renee Hill has a net worth estimated in excess of $12 million.
However, she seems to have put her professional life on the back burner since the arrival of their daughter Lola who now takes up most of her time. Her baby girl notwithstanding, Hill has always been the strength behind her spouse, supporting the famous stand-up comedian in all his endeavours.
Relationship with Bill Burr and Daughter
You will not find a lot of personal information made public by Nia Renee Hill, but one aspect of her life that has consistently made it to the public domain is her relationship with the comedian. Nia met Burr in 2008 and both have been together ever since. As the daughter of a man with comedy roots, it is not surprising that she met Bill while she was working on a comedy show.
The duo didn’t hit it off it immediately; they were friends for a while before taking their relationship a notch higher to dating. They later decided to cohabit as live-in lovers before taking the ultimate step into marital life. The couple got married in front of their family and friends in September 2013.
Following their nuptials, Nia Renee Hill and her husband relocated to LA to start their life as a legally married couple. They have since welcomed a daughter, Lola Burr, who was born on the 20th of January, 2017.
Meet her Husband Bill Burr
Nia Renee Hill’s husband is the son of dentist Robert Edmund Burr and nurse Linda Ann, he was born on the 10th of July 1968, in Canton Massachusetts. As already mentioned, William Frederick Burr earns a living as an actor, stand-up comedian, and podcaster.
Aside from his comedy gigs, Burr is known for Breaking Bad – the AMC crime drama series where he gave life to the character of Patrick Kuby. He equally created and played a lead role in F is For Family – the Netflix animated sitcom. Hill’s husband is a co-founder of the All Things Comedy network and appeared in The Mandalorian – a Star Wars series as Mayfield. Since 2007, he has been hosting The Monday Morning Podcast.
