Comedian Bo Burnham To Headline Club Nokia in LA
AEG Live announces Bo Burnham Live – “what.” A show of all new material by comedian Bo Burnham – on tour Spring 2013. “What.” is Burnham‘s first new stand up show since “words, words, words”— the show that made him the youngest person ever to record a Comedy Central hour special at 19 years old. This new show combines music, stand-up and theater in a way that hasn’t been seen before.
The 22-year-old will star in his own television series that he co-created “Zach Stone Is Gonna Be Famous” set to premiere on MTV Thursday, May 2 at 10:30 pm. A scripted comedy series, the plot stars Burnham as a teenager on a quest to become famous without any talent whatsoever.
“This new show is something I’ve been working on for the last two and half years,” says Burnham. “And now it’s finally done. It better be good.”
Bo Burnam‘s “what” tour will stop in major venues across the country, coming to Los Angeles’ CLUB NOKIA on Saturday, June 1st.
