CLEVELAND, Ohio Bo Burnham is the millennial generation’s answer to Robin Williams and George Carlin. But he’s more than that. He became a YouTube sensation at the age of 15, recording his musical comedy from his parents’ home in Boston.
While he defies categorization, calling him a comedy genius is not an exaggeration.
She gave two examples: “Twelve percent of the planet does not have clean drinking water. [Food Network personality] Guy Fieri has two functioning restaurants.”
Burnham’s stage was loaded with theatrical bells and whistles, including dual smoke cannons. He told the crowd that this show was the largest on the tour.
“In Canada, all the crowd wanted to do was look at the moving lights,” he said.
Burnham said the smoke cannons cost $50 per show, yet they only make his jokes 2 percent funnier.
“I keep saying I’m going to get rid of them tomorrow,” he said. “But I never do. Tomorrow never comes.”
He performed a lament entitled “Straight White Male.” It included the line, “Don’t judge me until you’ve walked a mile in my Uggs.”
Rap music’s misogyny and materialism were a target of a lot of his jokes. He demonstrated how anything could become an epic rap song when set to a “sick beat” by performing “I’m A Little Teapot” to heavy electronic drums and bass.
Burnham, now in his mid 20s, employed audience participation when he had the crowd all crack their knuckles in unison. The sound was unnerving.
Arena country music was another target, for its perceived prejudices. His song “Panderin’ ” included the line “No shoes, no shirt, no Jews.”
He knocked comedian Jerry Seinfeld for his comment about not performing at colleges anymore because audiences were too politically correct.
“Imagine a nation of young people being deprived of the white hot comedy of Jerry Seinfeld,” he said sarcastically.
He performed his hit song, “From the Perspective of God,” which included the lines: “You’re not going to heaven. There’s a million aliens cooler than you.”
