Bo Up from the Flo Up

Bo Burnham taped his first of two Comedy Central specials four days after his 18th birthday. Four days after turning 18. That made him the youngest performer to tape a Comedy Central special and therefore public enemy number one to my former high school self. Then I watched his stand-up and both versions of me were won over within minutes. He opened with “My ex-girlfriend had a really weird fetish, she liked to dress up as herself and then act like a fucking bitch all the time.” Then came his take on a Yo Momma joke — “Your mother’s breasts sag with such severity that the late, great surrealist artist Salvador Dali mistook them for clocks.” Damn. Fine arts burn. If you want to see his hard-hitting jokes in action along with a few autobiographical songs he wrote and performs, swing by the Majestic Theatre (1925 Elm St.) at 8 p.m. Friday.
