Comedian Bo Burnham Tackles The Zany, Serious In Poetry Book
Bo Burnham has gone from You-Tube sensation to professional comedian, actor, director, song-writer and now, poet.
Burnham grew up in Hamilton, Mass. He began recording funny songs at age 16 for his older brother, posting them on YouTube.
Since then, he has released three comedy albums, toured the country with his stand-up routines and created, wrote and directed an MTV mockumentary.
He is only 23 years old and now, he has a brand new book of poetry, “Egghead: or, You Can’t Survive on Ideas Alone.”
