Even if you think musical comedy is an oxymoron you have to check out Bo Burnhan Words Words Words Saturday December 4th at 10 on The Comedy Network. This fresh and musically interesting show will make you change your mind in this one case. Burnham is a good musician and a talented comic and he makes the combination work. This Comedy Central special is a bit blue and adult oriented but you've seen much worse.
The show opens with a very good bit on what's funny where Burnham takes a shot at the tropes many comics like to parade. Burnham is also very good as surreal comedy and excels at the bait and switch joke.
The show also features good bits on men and women where Burnham manages to find new laughs, a song on what is ironic Alanis Morissette really should listen to to see what irony really is, a Shakespearean bit on Shakespeare.
The rap meets Laurie Anderson bit halfway through the show is simply superb.
Also on this show are a good series of comic haikus, odd statistics, and a good bit titled Art Is Dead.
Bo Burnham - Words, Words, Words airs Saturday December 4th at 10 on The Comedy Network. It really is worth watching.
