DELAWARE, Ohio – Comedian, singer-songwriter, and poet Bo Burnham became the youngest person ever to record a half-hour Comedy Central special at age 18. He has released two hour-long specials since then: “Words, Words, Words” in 2010 and “what.” in 2013, with the latter receiving more than 9.7 million views on YouTube.

Burnham recently created and starred in the MTV series “Zach Stone is Gonna Be Famous” and wrote a book of poetry, “EGGHEAD,” which became a New York Times Bestseller. His live shows, which contain mature content, are a unique blend of stand-up, music, and theatre. Burnham currently is performing all over North America as part of his “MAKE HAPPY TOUR.”
