Bo Burnham has come a long way from uploading funny and punny songs from his bedroom on YouTube. In this special, Bo really lets his nerd flag fly. He ups his game. He goes beyond the singing comedian shtick. He has definitely put his comedic lyrical skills to great use, not just in the songs and raps, but also in sonnets and haikus. And if "Oh Bo" is not stuck in your head by the time the special ends, you are devoid of life!

Comedy's brave new world has a young dynamic leader. And that man is Bo Burnham. Mixing traditional stand up with meta humor and conceptual comedy seamlessly, this lanky, musically gifted entertainer is without a doubt on the cutting edge of a new brand of comedy. Clever, crass, often thoughtful and frequently insightful, Bo Burnham is not content to simply make you laugh with his incredible word play and goofy physical actions, he instead pushes his audience to dig deeper. To question subjects such as race, sexism, religion and he does it while never becoming preachy or hitting you over the head with his message. He weaves it into his humor with such grace that George Carlin himself would be proud. He's not for those with closed minds or virgin ears but if you want to enjoy a totally original take on stand up comedy, "Words Words Words" is definitely for you.

Bo Burnham is the most insightful comic in the business. His combination of jokes and jaw-dropping disposition provide a lot to laugh about and a lot to genuinely consider (respectively). In this special he strays from his piano-based songs and explores poetry, hip-hop, traditional stand-up, and prop comedy and all of the mediums are effective. The song "Art is Dead," provided valid and sobering truths, while "Oh Bo," will surely please fans of his first album. I have had friends over to watch this special and so far it hasn't disappointed anyone I've shown it to.

Using a blend of stand up and musical performance, Bo comments on religion, relationships, and other standard comic fair. At the age of 19, Bo performs as if he was a seasoned vaudevillian with sharp and sometimes acerbic humor. I would go as far as saying that this kid is a brilliant humorist.

If nothing else, this kid is pretty exceptionally talented. Decent music, clever word play, and outright original humor. Be prepared for profanity, but don't let it be the reason you miss this kid's performance. Worth watching more than once (you'll catch new things every time) just for how genuinely clever he is, even with a few moments where he may be too quick for his audience. Too smart to miss.

No person or subject is out of bounds, love him or hate him, he won't care which. He's a good reminder that we take ourselves a little too seriously.

I am in love with Bo, yo. Okay, I'm old enough to be his mom, but whatever. This show is markedly different that his "what" show. This show is more cerebral. This guy has to have a genius IQ. Many of the jokes may not be understood by the audience because the jokes are more intelligent than most people are probably used to hearing. I could feel the audience though the TV, thinking, "WTF am I watching??" His subsequent show, "what" is more on a civilian level and has more flash, for lack of a better term, and is very, very, funny, but a different kind of funny that this show. I love them both. He is truly amazing. Funny, musically gifted, gifted at acting, his timing is impeccable, and his intelligence is very apparent in both shows. I also love that many of his jokes end with a serious message, for people who care enough, to ponder. Did I say love enough? LOVE LOVE Bo and his ADHD lanky self.

One of the best standups of all time in my opinion. completely bias of course but the way Burnham uses singing to express his jokes is pretty sick, and I can only imagine a lot more difficult then writing standard jokes. really talented kid here.
