Egghead Or, You Can't Survive on Ideas Alone

Egghead Or, You Can't Survive on Ideas Alone

By: Bo Burnham (author), Chance Bone (illustrator)eBook


In 2006, at the age of 16, Bo Burnham posted videos he'd made of himself performing two songs about teenage angst on YouTube for his brother to watch. From this modest start, his YouTube videos with their unique blend of stand-up and music, now receive millions of views.

His award-winning Edinburgh Fringe show, with its seamless flow of music, ideas, humour and a lot of heart, won over UK audiences, and, with his MTV show, Bo Burnham is set to become a new voice for his generation.

Unsurprisingly, for a writer whose first YouTube clip was entitled 'My Whole Family Thinks I'm Gay', this collection of absurdist poetry displays a disarmingly self-aware and mocking streak. Sometimes flippant, often moving, always astute, this irreverent collection is accompanied by witty line drawings.
