Good debut book with mix of poetry, Bo's thoughts and some nice illustrations,
This review is from: Egghead: Or, You Can't Survive on Ideas Alone (Hardcover)
If you are using YouTube then you have probably heard about Bo Burnham.
He became a big star who came from anonymity to world-wide recognition thanks to his videos.
After that he recorded three Comedy Central specials, becoming the youngest ever person who managed to achieve that, afterwards getting his show on MTV.
Due to his talent for humor, he is great entertainer that will hopefully make a great career in comedy.
"Egghead" is his first book, and although it's advertised as poetry book it's actually mix of poetry, Bo's thoughts and nice illustrations made by Chance Bone.
Although it's difficult to describe his style, taking into account his simplicity but in same time style distinction from other comedians, Bo doesn't have unpleasant or unusual topics that he doesn't dare to write about - inside the book among others you'll find his thoughts about breakups, bald barbers and death that will make you laugh no matter how oddly these themes sounds.
Therefore, if you're Bo's fan you will certainly love his book due to his known style that made him famous.
And for all others who want to read something funny, new and refreshing, I suggest you to give chance to Bo Burnham's book that will make you laugh.
"Egghead" is good debut book from Bo Burnham that I fully recommend.
