Bo Burnham: “what.” A new live comedy show thing

Description: Three years ago, Bo Burnham was just another high-schooler recording YouTube videos for fun. Today, Burnham has burst on the comedy scene with a full-length LP, a Comedy Central special and a deal to write a film for Judd Apatow. Entertainment Weekly recently named Burnham one of the “12 Rising Stars of Comedy. In March, Burnham released his first full length LP “Bo Burnham” which topped Billboard’s New Artist chart and was #2 on the Billboard’s Comedy chart in its first week. Four days after his eighteenth birthday, Burnham became the youngest person to record a “Comedy Central Presents” special. The special premiered on March 27th, 2009.During the fall of his junior year in high school, Burnham 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. In 2006, Burnham recorded two of his songs as videos, and posted them on YouTube. Three years and fifteen videos later, Bo’s videos have been seen over 50 million times worldwide. The songs, recorded in Bo’s bedroom with a camera resting on a stack of books have been remixed, rated, and reviewed thousands of times. In 2008, Burnham signed a four-record deal with Comedy Central Records. He released his first digital-only EP “Bo Fo Sho” on iTunes in June; the album hit #1 on the iTunes comedy album chart and #6 on the overall iTunes album chart alongside the likes of Coldplay. With the growing internet buzz, Burnham was invited to the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal in 2007 where he met Judd Apatow. Apatow flipped for the, then 17-year-old, and shortly after Burnham signed a deal to write the script and songs for an “anti-high school musical” feature in which he would also star, with Apatow producing. Burnham has already started compiling film credits with roles in Apatow’s “Funny People,” and Rob Schneider’s “Virgin on Bourbon Street” both due later this year.
