"This B.O. lingers..."
Indeed it does. Bo Burnham performed a ton of old and new material to a packed house last week at The Roxy on Sunset Blvd. After dealing with THE rudest Live Nation employee at the box office window (bitch, you know who you are!), Kristy and I finally made our way into the venue. Exactly how does an 18 year old, fresh out of high school, behave when he's on stage and the girls in the crowd are all singing along to his lyrics? Does he blush? No. He does not. He tells them to shut the fuck up. Why? Well, because:
"No! No, no...I do it better."
Oh, but it didn't stop there. Bo was heckled by his "fans" throughout the first portion of his set. Um, ladies, please shut the fuck and let the man do his thing. Oh, you're going to continue being all cunt-y and give this young man a hard time? Ok. Let's see what happens...
Bo: Pauses for moment after being rudely interrupted.
Girl: "Do you need a minute?"
Bo: "Ha...yeah...do you need a fucking cock in your mouth?"
WOW. I like this guy. A LOT!
Oh, he wasn't done. Cindy, a middle aged audience member who later claimed to be related to Bo, was eventually kicked out, at Bo's request. It was awesome. This bitch kept yelling out stupid and irrelevant comments about him and his act Lame. Here's where it gets good:
Bo asked the woman to leave. She got up, as if walking towards one of the exits, but then proceeded to head towards the stage where she tried to take a seat and "enjoy" the rest of the show. Um, what the fuck, lady? He just asked you to leave. LEAVE! You're annoying all of us.
Finally, Bo just looked over at one of the security guards and said, "Get her the fuck out of here. I'm serious."
Then she pulled the "We're related. I'm related to so and so..." card.
Bo: "Who cares? Get her out of here."
Here's a picture of poor lil Cindy being escorted out of the venue - womp womp!:
After a little encore, Bo wrapped up the show only to come down minutes later to greet his fans and take some pictures. Funny guy. Nice guy. Oh, and some words of advice from Bo himself:
"Swallow bitch...there are people starving in Africa." Eat your veggies... or protein shakes or whatever.
