UAC Concert: Bo Burnham

7:30pm | Zorn Arena | $15 UW-Eau Claire Students, $25 General Public
Comedian, singer/songwriter, and actor Bo Burnham became an internet sensation when he started posting videos on YouTube while living in his parents' attic as a teenager. Since then, his videos have gained over 125 million views on YouTube and 650,000 subscribers. He is consistently one of the most in-demand college acts touring today. With two Comedy Central specials already under his belt, Bo was the youngest person to release a Comedy Central Presents at the age of 18.         

A talented writer and actor, Bo recently created, wrote, and starred in his own MTV showZach Stone Is Gonna Be Famousthat aired on the network in the summer of 2013.  He also released his first book later that year titled
EGGHEAD: Or, You Can't Survive on Ideas Alone.The book consists of a strange and charming collection of hilariously absurd poetry, writing, and illustrations and was a New York Times best seller.

This year, Bo released his new comedy special "What." The special is currently available on Netflix and YouTube where it has gained over two million views in its first month of being released. In addition to being on the road, he is currently working on a motion picture project with Paramount Studios.
