A strange and charming collection of hilariously absurd poetry, writing, and illustration from one of today's most popular young comedians?Ķ

Bo Burnham was a precocious teenager living in his parents' attic when he started posting material on YouTube. 100 million people viewed those videos, turning Bo into an online sensation with a huge and dedicated following. 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. And, he can SIIIIIIIIING!

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?"

    Swears much, but some good stuff. I cried, laughing twice. It's terrific, horrific but nice.
  • It's childhood's Shel Silverstein all over again.

    There's some stupid one's worth nothing but for the majority of the book it's a fun small little treat you can read before bed or anywhere else where you might like to giggle.

    This book is wonderful and it touches on several subjects with humor. Bo Burnham is a great comedian and I look forward to seeing more of his work.
  • I love this

    By Snaprtyu
    When I first got the book I thought it would be a novel of his life, like he was the egghead. When I found out it was a poetry book, I wasent sure what to think, I love everything Bo burnham does so I gave it. Chance and I finished it in 3 days.( it would have been 1 day if it weren't for my phone battery) 10/10
  • Great

    It's the perfect blend of funny and serious .
  • Not his best work.

    I expected more from this book, but was pretty disappointed. The poems are lacking true wit. They are silly for the sake of being silly, not for the sake of being funny or irreverent. Even the artwork seems basic, but in a lack of effort kind of way. Clearly this is Bo milking the cash cow before it falls over dead.
