COMEDIAN Bo Burnham’s new Netflix special has received excellent reviews from critics and will have millions laughing over the coming weeks.
Here’s everything we know about the funnyman.
Who is Bo Burnham?
Bo Burnham is an American actor, musician and comedian.
The 30-year-old made a name for himself as a teenager in 2006 when he began making funny videos on YouTube – receiving more than 300MILLION hits to date.
At 18, Bo became the youngest person in history to record a comedy special with broadcaster Comedy Central and has since become a Netflix regular.
His first Netflix special – Make Happy – was released exclusively on the platform in June 2016 and his eagerly anticipated follow-up has just dropped on the streaming platform.
Bo has also released four comedy albums as a musician – but has not produced new material since the release of ‘What’ in 2013.
And he’s an established actor, appearing in Parks and Recreation, Hall Pass and Promising Young Woman, among many more popular movies and TV shows.
Bo won countless awards for Eighth Grade, a 2018 coming-of-age comedy drama that he wrote and directed.
What is Bo Burnham’s net worth?
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Bo is worth $4m – around £2.8m.
But Distractify are reporting that he’s now worth $5m – around £3.5m.
Recognised as one of the biggest comedians in Hollywood with a Netflix contract, Bo’s bank balance is only expected to grow in the coming years.
What is Bo Burnham’s height?
Standing at 6’6 – just shy of two metres – Bo is one of the tallest comedians in the US.
Discussing his height in an interview with NPR in December 2018, the funnyman revealed what it was like to be tall and famous.
He said: “I have just recently in the last year tried to stand up straight because I always didn’t. I always slouched.
“It’s like a nightmare if I ever go to a theatre to watch a play or something and, like, you can just see the people watching me walk down the aisle like, please, no, please, God, no.
“And I have to give, like, hunched standing ovations. It’s all very sad.”
