There’s a chance we might see Bo Burnham get in the MTV lineup with Snooki.
It was just a few months back we got the chance to attend Caroline’s in NYC to catch Bo record his new comedy album Words, Words, Words but a new album is not the only thing the 20 year old stand-up has in his future. He’s going to add TV star to his already impressive roster.
Variety is reporting that Bo has a pilot deal with MTV to make a show about a kid fresh out of high school who’s trying to become a celebrity without having any sort of talent. Now that we think about it, this sounds like a perfect show for MTV, who’s been cranking out non-celeb celebs for years now. As of right now, there’s not a title for the show but our bets are on The Bo Fo’ Show because we like puns.
The upside to this is that Burnham is in fact a talented man and this definitely falls into his wheelhouse since he himself rose to fame a few years back thanks to some viral Youtube clips. And if all this fails, he can always try to release a sex tape.
