Publisher's Summary

A strange and charming collection of hilariously absurd poetry, writing, and illustration from one of today's most popular young comedians....

Bo Burnham was a precocious teenager living in his parents' attic when he started posting material on YouTube. 100 million people viewed those videos, turning Bo into an online sensation with a huge and dedicated following. 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. Now Bo is a rising star in the comedy world, revered for his utterly original and intelligent voice. And, he can SIIIIIIIIING!

In Egghead, Bo brings his brand of brainy, emotional comedy in the form of off-kilter poems, thoughts, and more. Bo takes on everything from death to farts in this weird audiobook that will make you think, laugh and think, "why did I just laugh?"

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Love love love!

If you could sum up Egghead in three words, what would they be?

Snarky, dirty, and romantic

Have you listened to any of Bo Burnham’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I am a HUGE fan of Bo's and his book is just as clever and hilarious as his stand-up and music, but with a touch of romance in between. This book is so new and so Bo.

Any additional comments?

I have the hardcover and hearing Bo read it is brilliant. I love it so so much. Buy/download this book, you won't regret getting it!

Egghead Is The Reason I Live.

This book gives me life.
So much life that I wrote a poem:

Roses are red
Violets aren't blue
I wanna fuck and make a little Bo Burnham baby with you.

Amazing

It made me laugh, think about the underlining themes, and imagine the story line perfectly. His voices complete the whole thing.

The poems from his show What.

Not just a book of poems but a clever concoction of funny stories.

some poems stud out more than others

Hilarious and witty - performed by the author

Profane and witty. Laughed out loud over and over, making those around me think I was crazy.
