The honest honest piece of comedy I've ever seen

Waiting for this special had me filled with anticipation, I don't think I've been this hyped for a comedy special before, though I had no idea what to expect at all.

What we received was the most honest, creative and depressing comedy special I've ever seen. Bo blew me away with his talent, with no crew or audience he managed to make a feature length masterpiece, filled with critiques of capitalism, (which was refreshing to see) social media and especially himself.

Bo is filled to the brim with creativity, and this special perfectly encapsulates that. The first half had me dying with laughter, the second had me close to tears. Some would say this is his best special, I might agree with that, but I'm not sure, because honestly it was a lot to take in. I will definitely be rewatching very soon.

Absolutely loved it.

Thanks Bo.

Know that he kept it real, know that he delivered a masterpiece!

This was brutally honest, catchy, uncomfortable, vulnerable, hilarious, and beautiful.

Oh, and definitely intelligent :)Thank you, Bo.

A refreshing Pandemic Special

After 5 whole years, Bo Burnham is back with a refreshing new special made in quarantine. I absolutely loved this.

Is it as funny as his last special? No.

But i don't think it's trying to be. It leans into darker topics like depression and feelings of loneliness more than anything he's done before.

The songs in this are not as good as the ones from Make Happy. They are, as you would expect, incredibly well written and produced, just not as funny. However, this is more than made up for by the incredible cinematography and editing. Somehow, he managed to make something shot in a very small space look as good as (if not better than) a big budget stage production.

So, in conclusion:I loved this. It is an honest of Bo's mental state throughout quarantine while simultaneously being one of the funniest things to come out this year. How this was made in one year by one guy in Isolation is beyond me.

A Masterpiece

"Inside" is silly and absurd at times, yet manages to also be chilling and haunting. It is a deeply authentic look at what Bo is going through, and is relatable as well as scary.

Worth the wait

Bo has used his comedic genius to create a very different but still very funny and entertaining special to watch.
