The great and talented comedian, Bo Burnham is releasing his new stand-up special for the price of “on the house.” Burnham made the announcement this past Friday during an interview on the podcast Hail Satire! telling the information to host Vic Shuttee.
When asked why he was releasing the new special, titled What. for free, Burnham stated, “I spent three years making this thing. I just kinda want people to see it. I’m not Louis C.K., who has a gigantic audience. I think there a lot of people who haven’t heard of me and a lot of people who may have heard of me earlier and not dug me stuff when I was 16 who might dig it now. I just wanted to be able to spread it to people to see it.” This will be Bo’s second hour special (following an EP and LP on Comedy Central Records) and was taped in San Francisco last month. Burnham has been a busy man of late with the release of a new book last week and short-lived TV show.
