Bo Burnham: Inside

Bo Burnham: Inside

okay, it's entirely on me that I didn't realise that this was gonna be musical comedy, but it is entirely on him that this is bad, kind of like if Daði Freyr was evil. the songs don't go anywhere! my beloved husband who constantly tells me I'm stealing his material compared this to Rachel Bloom, and how her songs are funny because they kind of start out with mildly amusing observational stuff but then rapidly ratchet up the absurdity to the point of hysteria. Bo Burnham does not do that! he starts out smug and gets smugger, opening with jokes about how as a white man with money he should really shut up but isn't going to - and like the thing is, joking about it doesn't really absolve you from doing it, dude - and escalating to taking the piss out of "white women's instagram", which is really just misogyny masquerading as wokeness, and then I just got so so fucking sick of his stupid voice and unfunny jokes that I had to turn it off NO THANK YOU SIR
