Bo Burnham: I think we should do a poem now! This poem's a little bit sappy, a little bit romantic, so we'll get it out of the way now.And then, we'll go back to the dirty stuff that, you know, everybody loves at a late show or whatever. It's called: "I Fuck Sluts"!
Female in Audience: [Cheers loudly]

I don't get the 8+ rating
25 December 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had not heard of this comedian before and found this special on Netflix and thought I would give it a try. To sum up my thoughts... I do appreciate Bo Burnham's wit and cleverness. I also appreciate his silly and zany performance as well as his musical talents. I just don't find it laugh out loud funny.

Unfortunately, I found What. to be annoying and Bo's singing voice sounds like nails on a chalkboard to me. It's looking doubtful that I will continue watching past 35 minutes. That said, I give him credit for being young, clever and making it happen for himself. And hey, I suggest at least checking out his set because who knows, maybe his comedy is right up your alley.
