Editorial Reviews

“Like Walt Whitman, Bo Burnham has made the transition from an internet comedy sensation to a soulful poet. No, not that Walt Whitman. A different guy.” Conan O’Brien
“I would love Bo Burnham’s hilarious book even if he weren’t my son.” Judd Apatow
“You have to be brave to be this hilarious and this sweetly romantic. And of course, a lot of talent helps. Egghead is a remarkable piece of writing!” Jack Handey, author of The Stench of Honolulu
