Bo Burnham Is Better Than You Realize

“Social media is just the market’s answer to a generation that demanded to perform. It’s prison, it’s horrific, it’s performer and audience melded together. What do we want more than to just lie in bed at the end of the day and just watch our life?”

Bo is a comedian, but hes doing things unlike any other comedian I’ve ever seen (and I’ve seen a lot).

His new special is on Netflix and well worth your time, but the video below is a small snippet from it in which he shares his unique perspective on the relationship between performers, audiences, and social media.

Also, when you’re done watching that clip, check out this one from his previous special — it starts slow, but trust me it gets good.
