Bo Burnham’s newest special, Bo Burnham: Inside, has won its first major award!
Burnham took home the award for Best Streaming Sketch Series, Variety Series, Talk Show, or Comedy/Variety Special for Inside. Along with his win in that category, he was also awarded the honorary Virtuoso Award.
Bo Burnham: Inside premiered on May 30 following Burnham’s 5-year hiatus from comedy. The special was filmed, written, edited, and directed completely by Burnham from his guest house in LA. With no audience or crew, he managed to create one of the best pieces of art to come not only out of the pandemic, but in general. A collection of songs and monologues segued with some incredibly meta footage, Inside took the world by storm. The special delighted long time fans of the comedian alongside ushering in an entirely new fan base.
Along with the win for Inside, he won the first ever Virtuoso Award for his previous work, including his comedy and filmmaking.
You can watch three out of four of Burnham’s specials, including Inside, on Netflix.
