Bo Burnham "INSIDE" on Netflix
Just dropped ... his Covid-Lockdown show. He did it all in his room over the last year.
And he spends a fair amount of time in his underwear. Showing package and VPL. In case you're interested.
I've had a crush on him since I first saw him. He's VERY talented. The show is very well done, and intermittently very funny, but all of it is showing a lot of talent. And I'm sorry, but I find him hot.

He’s gross looking. Didn’t he used to be cute?

I feel like going inside Bo Burnham would result in a lot of shit on your dick.

He was cute, and now he's kinda hipster-hot.
He's not gross.
I'm still very attracted to him, and crushing on him.

I only know him from Promising Young Woman. Is he funny?

His first Netflix special was hilarious.
This one is more ... existential. But the song "White Woman's Instagram" was hilarious.

It's interesting to watch him deteriorate over the course of the covid year... he doesn't cut his hair or shave, so you can tell pretty much when each segment was done. Towards the end he shows himself singing the same song near the beginning and near the end, and the difference is striking.
It's a great mirror reflecting what a lot of people went through during lockdown. The humor tempered by teh reality of how mentally difficult it was... and how many people were, if only temporary, broken.
It's a courageous performance.

Is that ugly guy at R7 supposed to be him?

After a year of quarantine with no shave and no hair-cut, yes.

He just doesn’t have that “it” factor. He looks like some bum you pass on the street that you wouldn’t even notice. Whereas John Mulaney just looks like he should be famous and you would definitely notice him.

He’s crazy intelligent and quick in real life. He lived down the block for awhile in nyc. Went to the same coffee shop every morning at 6:15 am. Got to know him very slightly. A good guy

Thinks he can make gay jokes because he was a drama nerd.

I thought Words Words Words had exceedingly clever lyrics, and that made him hot. Of course that was like 10 years ago.

Here's a clip from the show that gives you a sense of what it's like. (I'm sure the clip will be taken down soon.)
I watched "Inside" a second time the next night to see if it really was as great as I thought it was. (I never do that.) For me, the second viewing was even better.
I've read a lot of "it's a masterpiece" reviews but I couldn't find a negative one (yet).

Netflix released one clip today on Youtube, so at least this one should stay up.
"FaceTime with My Mom Tonight"

I watched this today and was blown away. I’ve always dismissed Bo because he got his start on YouTube....he’s actually quite talented.
And as far as looks go, he’s just my type (tall, dark hair, blue eyes)

DL content from "Inside" (not intentional on Bo's part)-

Bo gives me hope that at least some small part of the next generation won't suck.

He has about 22 reviews and 100% rating on Rottentomatoes for Inside. "Masterpiece" is a term used more here than I've seen it in reviews lately.
This from Slate

I stumbled across this guy on YT about 10 years ago and his big claim to fame at the time was his "My Whole Family Thinks I'm Gay" video. His humor was, and still is, witty and intelligent. And, as people have mentioned, he is talented.
I'm looking forward to watching "Inside" immediately after this post. A great way to spend Tuesday evening...inside.

He is cute. His hair doesn’t look particularly dark, though. Looks like dark blond or light brown.
Tim Dillon had a funny bit about Burnham and his white guilt. “I’m an asshole for taking this paycheck from Netflix, but I’m doing it anyway.”
I haven’t seen the special. My first thought is, why was he so isolated? Was he quarantining for 15 months? Because that’s a really extreme Covid experience, if so. Maybe you didn’t party with your homies, or French kiss strangers, and you had to wear a mask in stores and other public places but... it’s not like we were all forced to stay inside alone for 15 months because the air was radioactive or something.
But maybe I should watch the special first. It just seems like that’s what his experience was, based on all the promotional material I’ve seen, and a couple clips and reviews.

Maybe he's a DLer. He mentions "straining your pasta" in his ditty about the internet from the film.

R36, in "Inside" he's in his underwear a lot, and there's definitely impressive VPL going on there.

All the songs contained in "Inside" have been released by Bo as an album on Spotify and other music streaming services as of Thursday, 6/10/21.

If you are totally unfamiliar with Burnham's work, i wouldn't start here. Check out his last special and/or the one before that. Then watch this. Work your way backwards if you like his stuff. He's a brilliant human and a funny comedian and a decent musician, but this is a very specific work created by pandemic limitations. Under any circumstance, you'll appreciate it more if you see what he's capable of in a regular act, not while he's trying to make art stuck alone in an empty room
|by Anonymous||reply 39||06/09/2021|
I still don’t understand why he was “stuck alone in an empty room” making this.

I'm concerned this will become a popular trend with production companies since it drastically cuts production costs. Like lock Meryl Streep in a broom closet with an iPhone and let her out when you get Art.

I know people who have basically quarantined themselves for the last 15 months out of paranoia or…whatever motivates them. Watched this and thought it was good. My favorite was him doing commentary on Unpaid Intern. Very funny.

But is his Netflix special supposed to be a realistic representation of what his pandemic experience was?

I'm not ready yet. I am not into watching anything pandemic related. It's a turn off, but this does look interesting.
|by Anonymous||reply 45||06/12/2021|
R40, I think you're taking things too literally and thus reaching a false conclusion about Burnham's "documentary". It's unlikely that he spent the entirety of the pandemic completely confined to his home, never leaving the confines thereof, or never having visitors.
Like many people, he probably adhered to the lockdowns mandated by the CA state government as much as possible, venturing into public spaces only if absolutely necessary. People really had no idea how bad the pandemic might get, and subsequent surges made people even more fearful, which motivated them to isolate even further, which it seems he may have done.
The premise of the documentary is basically that of someone with an enormous amount of free time on their hands as a result of self-isolation, being alone with their thoughts, and passing the time in a way that is central to their nature. That is, extreme self-indulgence into their creative energy and making a film in the context of an unprecedented time in modern history.

He didn’t have a girlfriend who would come over and fuck him? I don’t know anyone his age who isolated to that extent. I’ll watch his special for the VPL, but I maintain the premise is absurd.

Of course not. His loose assemblage of somewhat random elements is neither loose, not random, not something that grew organically. It's carefully plotted, with lots of careful references to his earlier work.
There's a long and richly detailed analysis at the link that suggests it's a realistic representation only not of his pandemic experience but if history of a pandemic experience. More true than the truth, you could say.
Even the set turns fake at the end where he exits through a too tiny door to enter the outside world. It's not the outside world that's big, it's the Inside?

Excellent assessment R47. Nice to read something intelligent after the bewildered musings of some nitwit who just didn't get the point.

I was so excited to watch this. It got 100% on Rotten Tomatoes. I made the popcorn and poured a glass of Chardonnay. 20 minutes in I turned it off. And I’m a creative, intelligent person. It just didn’t resonate with me. Or maybe I’m just over all the woke culture.

Yeah, "I'm just over woke culture" as a reason is a red flag on you, not on the show. Jesus, WTF is wrong with you when THAT is your reaction.

TOTALLY R52. It reeks of Trumpian brainwashing. "Woke" is Fox news' word of the decade. The second I see that word the post loses credibility.

His "What" special was about 8 years ago when he was 22 years old. Even then you had an idea about how big he could be. He did all the offscreen character voices in this finale song.

I can't remember the last time I thought something was truly brilliant, but this special is. It's spectacular and he is an amazingly talented person. I've enjoyed his work in the past but this is next level. He has the talent to write a musical.
