Sometimes funny, sometimes serious, mostly absurd collection of poetry and essays from comedy superstar and creator of Netflix phenomenon Inside Bo Burnham.

Bo Burnham was a teenager living in his parents' attic in Massachusetts when he started posting funny songs to YouTube. They immediately turned heads with their wise satire that belied his very young age. His videos have been viewed over 209 million times, and he has amassed a gigantic online following that excitedly await each new video. Bo is revered in all comedy circles for being a wholly original, highly intelligent young voice. Judd Apatow was an early champion of the young comedian, and Bo taped his first Comedy Central special at age 18, the youngest in history. His comedy/song albums were huge critical and commercial successes.

Written in his very distinctive comedic voice, EGGHEAD: OR, YOU CAN'T SURVIVE ON IDEAS ALONE brings Bo's award-winning brand of brainy word play to the page in the form of off-kilter writings, thoughts, and poems. Collaborating with longtime friend, artist and illustrator Chance Bone, Bo writes about everything from painful breakups to bald barbers, in a collection that makes the reader laugh, but like his stand-up and music, also displays surprisingly mature insights.

With one text piece and one original black & white illustration per page, this book is a unique window into one of the most celebrated comic minds of his generation.

“Makes you laugh then makes you think”

Bo has a great knack for comedy, he just gets it in a way many others can’t. His songs and stand up have many layers to them and so much depth that they require second and even third sittings. His poetry is no... More
