Bo Burnham’s Stand-Up Special ‘what.’ Arrives for Free on YouTube
Bo Burnham’s comedy special “what.” landed on Netflix and YouTube today. Here’s the kicker: With it being on YouTube, it’s available for free. It’s a risky move seeing that Burnham produced the special out of his own pocket. However, given the recent rise of pay-what-you-will content, Burnham seems to be banking on the hope that people will pick up the “what.” audio album from iTunes after checking out the free special.
Burnham is no stranger to releasing his content for free, though. The 23-year-old comedian rose to stardom after his YouTube parody songs racked up million of views on YouTube in 2010. Since then, the comedian has released several comedy specials, including “Words, Words, Words,” which is also currently streaming on Netflix.
You can check out “what.” in the YouTube player below.
