BO BURNHAM Egghead, or, You Can’t Survive on Ideas Alone An absurd collection of poetry and writing from rising star comedian, Bo Burnham. Bo Burnham gained a gigantic online following for his funny videos, and went on to tape his first on the US TV channel Comedy Central special at age 18, the youngest in history. Egghead, or, You Can’t Survive on Ideas Alone brings Bo’s awardwinning brand of brainy word-play to the page in the form of off-kilter writings, thoughts, and poems. Collaborating with longtime friend, artist and illustrator Chance Bone, Bo writes about everything from painful break-ups to bald barbers, in a collection that makes the reader laugh, but like his stand-up and music, also displays a mastery of words and satire. Bo Burnham is a US comedian, an internet phenomenon who achieved international recognition by the age of 20 and now has his own MTV show. He regularly tours at the Edinburgh Festival and was nominated for Best Newcomer in 2010. He has had over 114 milion views on YouTube.
