As we grapple with the question of how much space to give the voices of white men in a society where other voices have been silenced for so long, their autofiction can feel indulgent. Though it is likely the case that every generation can lay claim to having lived in The Real more than the next, Big Millennial Energy means acknowledging how painful it is to “live online” while continuing to do so. phenomenon, Bo Burnham, brings you his first full-length album, a CD of the best of his hilarious, irreverent, and craftily-worded songs. Kathryn VanArendonk puts it this way: “It’s all endless loops of performance and consumption, worrying about performativity and authenticity and productivity, staring at himself in the mirror. It wouldn't be fair to review Egghead without mentioning the brilliantly simplistic illustrations by Chance Bone.

He is not only a man who can make you pee your pants with laughter, he is a man who can make you think and a man who can make you cry.I remember sitting on the couch reading it the night I got it and cackling away at the hilarity therein – I even took photos of some of my favourite poems and sent them to people. In addition to six Emmy nominations, it seems Inside might win an award for most hyperbolic critical response. Kevin Fallon considers this in his review: “What is performance and what is voyeuristic when the pain we’re watching is almost uncomfortably real? Unlike most other people in such a situation though, Burnham’s sense of humor catered to his many viewers, and nearly overnight Bo became an online sensation.

Autofiction satisfies the market need for relatable protagonists while appearing to offer a stylish new mode through which to deliver content. There's a battle between his left and right brain, perverted miming, a song from God's perspective and much more -- what. He puts a sock on his hand for a duet about the problems of neoliberalism: while Burnham sings an upbeat song about “How the World Works,” the puppet interjects with verses about historical genocide and the exploitation of workers. The MTV series Zach Stone Is Gonna Be Famous, a mockumentary which Bo created, wrote, directed, and starred in, premiered in May 2013.The claim that Burnham’s suffering is universal—that he represents everyone who took to sweatpants and depression during the pandemic—is one that fans of Inside may make more than Burnham himself. I’m looking for books—preferably written by academics for lay people—that address some of the same themes Bo covers in inside.

Burnham released the book in 2013, just several months ahead of his second hour-long comedy special what.Before he reached his 18th birthday, Bo entered the mainstream consciousness with internet videos (that have been viewed well over 20 million times) of him playing uproarious songs with ingenious wordplay and bad puns. The voluble praise of Inside’s relatability hinges on the elision of Burnham’s privilege, even as the comedian himself tries to acknowledge it.
