Bo Burnham to Offer Next Stand-Up Special for Free on YouTube
Comedian Bo Burnham is bringing his latest hour-long comedy special “what.” to YouTube. Burnham is best-known for his role in MTV’s “Zach Stone Is Gonna Be Famous,” which was canceled after its first season by the network earlier this year. The 23-year-old comedian first rose to fame after his parody YouTube music videos reached more than 70 million collective views in 2010.
The special, which will air on Burnham’s own channel, will premiere on December 17, 2013. The comedian announced the special via Twitter, writing: “My new hour-long comedy special ‘what.’ will be available for free on my YouTube channel.”
The special will also appear on Netflix, where the comedian’s previous stand up special, “Words, Words, Words,” is currently available for streaming.
