Bo Burnham is an American comedian, singer-songwriter, musician, poet and actor. Writing comedic and satirical songs that comment on social issues, celebrity culture, and the nature of comedy itself, he achieved fame when his YouTube videos gained great popularity; as of April 2015 his videos had been watched more than 152 million times.
Burnham described 2006 as the beginning of his musical comedy career, when he debuted original songs about teenage angst to fellow high school thespians around play rehearsals. That December, he videotaped himself performing two songs and posted them on YouTube to share with his family. While response to his videos on YouTube ("My Whole Family... " and "My 'little' secret...") was initially unexceptional, they became an overnight sensation when they were copied to Break.com, with traffic multiplying over 111 times.
Burnham has performed his music in the United States, including Cobb's Comedy Club, YouTube Live in San Francisco, Caroline's Comedy Club in New York City, and internationally in London and Montreal. In August 2010, Burnham was nominated for "Best Comedy Show" at the 2010 Edinburgh Comedy Awards after his inaugural performance (of Bo Burnham: Words, Words, Words). He instead received the "Panel Prize", a £5,000 prize for "the show or act who has most captured the comedy spirit of the 2010 Fringe."
In addition to his career as a comedian, Burnham co-created and starred in the MTV television series Zach Stone Is Gonna Be Famous and released his first book of poetry, Egghead: Or, You Can't Survive on Ideas Alone, in 2013.
