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.

Bo doesn't dissappoint with Egghead. It's cleverly written and I've read it multiple times. With each read my favourite poem changes with an eclectic range of themes. Chance Bone's illustrations make the poems even more entertaining and those alone are all amazing. 5*

Wonderful book, a big enough Bo Burnham fan as I am already although I believe this book would be a great read for anyone who enjoys comedy and/or poetry. The poems are well written and hilarious with some that are genuinely thought provoking and all enjoyable. Props to the illustrator too as it is done very well to create one pleasing piece of work which I occasionally dip into if I'm feeling bored or in need of a laugh

I love Bo Burham so I decided to buy this, it was well worth the money for the laughs me and my family got out of it. Would recommend this book to all Bo Burham lovers and anyone else who enjoys funny but random poems.

I first heard some of these poems when Bo read them out in his 'What.' show in 2013. I immediately knew I had to buy it- and I'm so glad I did. It's his typical weird style,and I loved them. A good mix of silly and serious poems- check it out!
