Funny People: Bo Burnham

It’s a new year, so I’ve decided to start up a new project. Every week, I’ll (try to) write a little bit about comedians that I like, accompanied by videos of their stuff. I’m a huge comedy nerd, so I hope this will be a lot of fun.

I first saw Bo Burnham on Comedy Central Presents one afternoon, and I couldn’t believe that he was only two years older than me. I certainly wasn’t the only one. To this day, Bo is the youngest comedian to ever have a CCP special, and he recently won the Panel Prize at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival (which is kind of a big deal). Like all great comics, he kills most of the room while offending a few uptighties. He’s devilishly clever and a master of wordplay, and he puts me to shame every time I see him.
(P.S. If you’re easily offended by Bo, go f&%k yourself.)

Early stuff from Bo’s bedroom:

Bo’s graduated to some… bigger venues now.

He can still make a decent video from home:

rhymin’, mathematical timin’, syntax impacts the intact hymen…
Absolute genius.
