About this deal

The tone of the book is constantly changing, as an extensive collection of topics are explored throughout. Your payment method will be charged immediately, and the product is expected to ship on or around October 7, 2014. I’ve been eyeing this particular collection for awhile now and after having read it, I feel mad at myself for taking so long to pick it up. Over 16 million people watched his videos and he soon amassed a gigantic (and young) online following that excitedly awaited each new video. It is possible to draw a line from David Foster Wallace to Ben Lerner to Bo Burnham: white men who explore the fraying and fragmenting effects of late capitalism and its online infrastructures.

He said, "I'm bored way too easily; I'm staring at screens half the day; I need to be overstimulated. There's a battle between his left and right brain, perverted miming, a song from God's perspective and much more -- what. There are different types of books out there with different purposes, and this one was made for pure entertainment. Bo taped his first of two Comedy Central specials four days after his 18th birthday, making him the youngest to do so in the channel’s history. That’s not to say it didn’t have serious content within its pages, it’s just that you had to want to see the seriousness.Teaming up with his longtime friend, artist and illustrator Chance Bone, Bo takes on everything from death to farts in this weird book that will make you think, laugh, and think, "Why did I just laugh? In Egghead, Bo brings his brand of brainy, emotional comedy to the page in the form of off-kilter poems, thoughts, and more. Bo Burnham was a teenager living in his parents' attic in Massachusetts when he started posting funny songs to YouTube that immediately turned heads with their wise satire that belied his very young age. A strange and charming collection of hilariously absurd poetry, writing, and illustration from one of today's most popular young comedians.

I haven’t had a shower in the last nine days” and also you are a worthy human who deserves a chance to get better. Interspersed between the expected bouts of bizarre hilarity (Chance Bone's illustrations are perfect) are quiet, sincere, utterly lovely little gems. To borrow the title of one of Burnham’s songs, then, this is how the world works: the male genius who sings in his underwear and the absent woman who makes it possible. However, such a classification, at least in my opinion, comes from the fact that Burnham uses lots of swearing in his writings, rather than being due to him discussing his ideas from a more mature perspective… so it’s kind of disappointing in that regard. millennials react to the conditions of the world with … discourse (“we can’t fix this, but let’s talk about fixing this”).Burnham began writing poetry in a Los Angeles café during the production of his mockumentary series Zach Stone Is Gonna Be Famous. Autofiction satisfies the market need for relatable protagonists while appearing to offer a stylish new mode through which to deliver content. I hope so, but it strikes me that Burnham’s insistence on playing both sides of the fence is an evasive maneuver. It wouldn't be fair to review Egghead without mentioning the brilliantly simplistic illustrations by Chance Bone.
