Bo Burnham: Inside
‘Inside’ is Burnham’s third Stand Up Comedy Special for Netflix following his previous specials in 2013 and 2016. This brand new special written throughout the last year and recorded by Burnham alone looks set to include more of his musical comedy not unlike his YouTube video of him playing the ‘Lower Your Expectations Song’ that has gained 5.2m views! It’s no doubt, Burnham, is popular and we expect this new special to be just as well-received but as for the trailer – well, we’ll just leave this here…
