It's a busy day in the comedy promoting department. Here's another release I just got:
“MAKE HAPPY TOUR”
HITS THE VOGUE THEATRE
IN VANCOUVER ON FEBRUARY 24
TICKETS ON SALE FRIDAY, DECEMBER 12 at NOON
December 9, 2014, Montreal – AEG Live Canada and Just For Laughs are thrilled to announce that standup comedian, actor and writer Bo Burnham will kick-off his 24 city North American tour dubbed Make Happy Tour with a performance in Vancouver on Tuesday, February 24 at the Vogue Theatre.
In 2008, a young Bo Burnham performed at Just For Laughs on Amp’d the Music Show which caught the eye of Judd Apatow and led to Burnham signing a development deal with the famed director. Burnham became the youngest person to ever record a half-hour Comedy Central special at the age of 18. He has released two hour-long specials since then: Words, Words, Words in 2010 and what. in 2013. The latter, what., was released on Netflix and Youtube simultaneously (a year later, it has received 6 million views on YouTube alone).
Bo recently created and starred in the MTV series Zach Stone is Gonna Be Famous and wrote a book of poetry,EGGHEAD, which became a New York Times Bestseller. Bo's live shows are a unique blend of stand-up, music and theatre.
