He was as good as I thought he would be. I see a bright future for this young man. I guess I am difficult to offend - I enjoyed it alot and wished it was a longer set. Some folks around me did not clap or laugh. Too bad for them! :)

I love the schadenfreude type of comedy and this was definitely one of those acts. The opening comedian Arthur G. was good, Ryan Stout was better, and Bo Burnham just blew things away. I can't believe he's only 18 years old! Smart, witty,...continued

Bo Burnham is very clever, but I’m not that into comedy in song format. On the other hand, I found Ryan Stout, the 2nd comedian to be very funny.

Quotes & Highlights

See videos at Bo Burnham’s website.
Rolling Stone named Bo Burnham one of the 5 Comics to Watch in 2008.


Ever since his first temper tantrum, Bo Burnham knew he wanted to perform. After an awkward “athletic” phase, he started dedicating his time to school theatre. He continued to nurture his love for performance, receiving rave reviews from countless relatives. Bo chose to attend an all-boys catholic high school, thus giving his nickname “theatre queer” some additional validity. During the fall of his junior year in high school, Bo started teaching himself how to play piano and guitar. Soon after, he wrote and composed autobiographical songs, such as “My Whole Family Thinks I’m Gay,” as non-fictional jokes between him and his friends.

On December 28th 2006, Bo recorded two of his songs as videos, and posted them on YouTube. Eight months and seven songs later, Bo’s videos have been seen over ten million times worldwide, generating literally hundreds of thousands of laughs. The songs, recorded in Bo’s bedroom with a camera resting on a stack of books (couldn’t afford a stand), have been remixed, rated, and reviewed thousands of times. Now amongst such elites as “The Chocolate Rain” guy and Chris Crocker, Bo hopes to capitalize on his “success” and share his stories with the world. Oh, and he also likes to rap…awkward.

Also appearing is Ryan Stout, the recent host of MTV’s “Spring Break ’08” and host of the new MTV series -“Ranked.”
