Bo Burnham: Welcome to the Internet

Bo Burnham spent the past year painstakingly making a “comedy” special alone in his room.

I particularly liked this Tom Lehrer homage. (It’s about the internet, so some parts are obscene.)

The show (on Netflix) is an hour and a half of touchingly relatable, melodramatic self-absorption. It feels like watching someone singing into their hairbrush, only with excellent sound and clever one-man-band lighting effects. The grinding ennui familiar to so many of us is combined with bursts of inventive physical and verbal energy that douse the whole sad story with splashes of joy.
