Bo Burnham 

When: Fri., May 8, 7:30 & 10 p.m. 2009
If comedians were drafted like pro athletes, Bo Burnham would likely be this year's number one pick. Already a YouTube sensation when he graduated high school last spring, the gifted teen has since released two albums on Comedy Central Records and is collaborating on a feature film with Judd Apatow. Pick any video of him singing his satirical songs and his talent and rich sense of humor are obvious. Poised and daring—which, admittedly, it must be easy to be in the comfort of his bedroom, where he records most of his videos—Burnham keenly mocks teenage melodrama and inventively takes on more complex topics like race and sexuality.
