Bo taped his first of two Comedy Central specials four days after his 18th birthday, making him the youngest to do so in the channel's history. Now Bo is a rising star in the comedy world, revered for his utterly original and intelligent voice.
In Egghead , Bo brings his brand of brainy, emotional comedy to the page in the form of off-kilter poems, thoughts, and more. Teaming up with his longtime friend, artist, and illustrator Chance Bone, Bo takes on everything from death to farts in this weird book that will make you think, laugh and think, "why did I just laugh?

Egghead: Or, You Can't Survive on Ideas Alone
Burnham composes these poems with an almost musical meticulousness, showing a truly diverse range of poetic techniques, ranging from the familiar iambic pentameter to sibilant stanzas on the subject of stuttering. The tone of the book is constantly changing, as an extensive collection of topics are explored throughout. It wouldn't be fair to review Egghead without mentioning the brilliantly simplistic illustrations by Chance Bone. His eccentric, often nonsensical and Picasso-esque artistic style matches the erratic subject matter of the book astoundingly well, despite hardly ever seeming coherent. The layout of the poems and their pages often changes to fit in with the illustrations too, as some of the poems are reliant on the visual presentation of the words to get a joke or meaning across to the reader. This amusing, peculiar and evocative collection of thoughts from one of comedy's fastest rising stars makes contemporary poetry extremely approachable, through sharp injections of humour and wordplay designed to make the reader laugh, contemplate, and then laugh some more.
