Wow. Bo does it again
8 June 2016 | by joshdavidheathSee all my reviews

Yet again Bo delivers an extraordinary blend of existentialism, social commentary, witty humour, catchy songs and, above all, a handful of masturbation jokes. I have personally been a fan since early on as he was making YouTube videos and loved his first Netflix collaboration 'what.' and 'Make Happy' in my opinion is further development for Bo as his show starts to take on more of his unique onstage personality and the best vocals I have seen from him. Overall it is a unique experience with some genuine laughs and also questions of the human experience.

8.5/10
