Robert Pickering Burnham (né le 21 août 1990) est un comédien américain, auteur-compositeur-interprète, musicien, rappeur, acteur, réalisateur et scénariste.
Burnham se fait connaître en publiant sur Youtube, à partir de mars 2006, des vidéos dont le succès d'audience - plus de 224 millions de vues pour l'ensemble de sa production en avril 2018 - lui assure une notoriété conséquente.
Il signe un contrat de 5 ans avec Comedy Central Records et publie son premier EP, Bo Fo Sho, en 2008. Son second album sort en 2010. La même année, il produit son second spectacle, Words Words Words, diffusé en live sur Comedy Central. Son troisième album et son second spectacle, what, sortent en 2013, relayés sur sa chaîne Youtube et sur Netflix.
En 2018, Burnham réalise le film Eighth Grade, dont il est aussi le scénariste.
Bo Burnham souffre de dépression et a des idées suicidaires. Dans la section «About me» de son site officiel, il indique qu'il prévoit de mourir le 17 janvier 2024.
Bo Burnham was born on August 21, 1990 to Scott Burnham, a construction company owner, and Patricia, a staff nurse at Burnham's school. He is the youngest of three children; his siblings Pete and Samm are currently enrolled in their third and second years at Cornell University and Suffolk Law School, respectively.
Burnham graduated from St. John's Preparatory School in 2008, where he was on the honor roll and involved in theatre and the campus ministry program. The school's assistant principal remarked, "[t]he Bo on YouTube is not the Bo we see around here, [...] no one at St. John's is surprised at his creativity or that he's pursuing his dream, which is to make a name for himself." Burnham graduated from St. John's in the spring of 2008.
Burnham applied to University of Southern California, Yale University, and was accepted to New York University's Tisch School of the Arts. Although expected to begin attending in autumn 2008, he deferred his enrollment for a year to focus on his burgeoning media career. Burnham said that his first year on tour while friends began college made him want "to fucking die. I'd be on the road, in South Dakota, looking on Facebook at all my friends at parties."
In a 2011 interview, Burnham said that he had a "girlfriend for five years".
Burnham described 2006 as the beginning of his musical comedy career, when he debuted original songs about teenage angst to fellow high school thespians around play rehearsals. That December, he videotaped himself performing two songs and posted them on YouTube to share with his family. While response to his videos on YouTube ("My Whole Family... " and "My 'little' secret...") was initially unexceptional, they became an overnight sensation when they were copied to Break.com, with traffic multiplying over 111 times.
Accompanying himself on guitar or digital piano, Burnham continued to release self-described "pubescent musical comedy" songs and videos online as his audience grew. Described in The Boston Globe as "simultaneously wholesome and disturbing, intimate in a folksy-creepy sort of way", Burnham wrote and released songs about white supremacy, Helen Keller's disabilities, homosexuality, and more. All of Burnham's home-released videos were self-recorded in and around his family's home in Hamilton, Massachusetts, most in his bedroom. Occasionally jokingly addressing his audience in his videos ("Hello, Internet pedophiles"), Burnham rarely changes expression or camera angle while performing—simply setting the video camera on a stack of books. Speaking with The A.V. Club in 2009, Burnham expressed his intent to give his productions a "do-it-yourself [feel], almost like voyeurism".
