Bo Burnham may be America’s first child prodigy of comedy. Still a teenager, he has already had a Bo Burnham tour of North America and the UK and been nominated for one of the world’s most prestigious comedy prizes, the “Best Comedy Show” award at the Edinburgh Comedy Festival.
Burnham rose to prominence as a bona fide Internet celebrity with millions of hits on his voyeuristic YouTube performances. Only after receiving a phone call from Dave Chappelle’s agent did he think he could make a career out of comedy. Since then, Burnham’s very adult satire covering such topics as religion, parenting, sexual preference and self-indulgent comedians have earned him a Comedy Central record deal and rave reviews for Bo Burnham shows.
Now Burnham is writing a film musical for Judd Apatow, who featured him in Funny People, and working on an MTV pilot. At Bo Burnham stand up you can expect everything from poetry to musical theater to Shakepeare. Catch Bo Burnham at a venue near you!
