Bo Burnham
 
He's been out for a while, but just wanted to let the less informed know. If you have the slightest sense of humor, check him out on YouTube.

I've seen one of his videos and I was very amused. :) Must be cool for him to get to work with Judd Apatow.

He is definitely insanely talented, but after listening to a few of his songs I got bored.

Absolutely insufferable

My thoughts exactly.

Just watched a couple of videos and had to close them pretty fast to avoid hearing any of that smug unfunny tool and his garbage songs.

He works with Judd Apatow?

I guess once you start working with Adam Sandler, all standards go out the window.

There are some serious haters (a.k.a people who just think they are better than everyone else) out here.

He was in that viral video/mock television show to promote Funny People. He also has a feature that, last I heard, is supposed to lampoon High School Musical.

Don't mean to hijack or troll the thread, just giving my opinion on it. Besides, Bo Burnham appears to be more smug than me/Quent/Bake combined.

Bo seems like he is really good with wordplay and somewhat creative for his age. I give him props for becoming so successful at a very young age.

However, I just dont dig his brand of comedy. I can see how some people may like it but its just not for me.

A lot of these Youtube stars piss me off. Especially Smosh. Horrible. Just awful comedy. It is depressing that they have so many subscribers.

I think the guy is very clever with his wording, but I can't stand the music at all, plus he just comes off as someone who thinks they are better than everybody else.

He came and performed on campus a few months back. MY find adored the guy, but I find him to just be an obnoxious glorification of a 12-year old's sense of humor. He just got on stage and randomly selected a song or told a few jokes...of the five comics I saw last year, he was second to last, closely edging out some undergrad warm-up act.

I really hate musical comedy. Unless it's done by Trey Parker or Matt Stone or someone else that talented, I absolutely hate it. Unfortunately for Bo, he's nowhere close to being as talented, so it's not my cup of tea. I gave it a shot, but I can't even listen to a song all the way through.

Agreed! DVDA rule!
