It’s been a bit since we last saw a special from Bo Burnham. After his last special, 2016’s Make Happy, Burnham announced that he was going to step back from stand-up for a while. And aside from the occasional Largo show to debut new material, he did just that.
This morning, however, he announced that a new Netflix special, titled Inside and filmed without a crew or audience, is on the way.

No word on when the special is being released. However, the intimacy of doing a special without any crew or audience does definitely harken back to his old YouTube days, when it was just him alone in his bedroom playing his funny songs. So we can’t wait to see this!
UPDATE: Burnham announced the special will premiere on Netflix on May 30th.
