Bo Burnham to Bring Laughs

Comedian Singer/Songwriter Bo Burnham will perform at the State Theatre on December 3rd, according to the comedian’s website. Make sure to keep an ear out for details regarding this event; this 20-year-old comedian may be looking for a place to party after, and you don’t want to miss out on offering him a place to crash.

Burnham, a graduate from high school in the class of 2008, is now the youngest comedian to be signed to Comedy Central records. Makes you feel shitty about what you’ve accomplished, huh? But you know he’ll be on our level and will hopefully be welcomed into the Penn State community.

Burnham’s new album, Words Words Words, drops October 19th with all new songs, haikus, poems, etc. Burnham is famous for making dirty songs with semi-positive messages, as well as creating a multitude of laughs. Some of his more popular bits, “I’m Bo, Yo” or “My Whole Family,” are bound to keep the audience roaring.

The State Theatre’s website does not list Burnham as performing yet, so ticket prices are unavailable but we can hope they stay low.
