Bo Burnham

Stand-up, musical satire, hip hop, acting and poetry writing are some of the creative disciplines that 25 year-old American comic Bo Burnham has dabbled in. Does that make him a jack of all trades, master of none? Or is he one of those rare individuals with a sufficiently well-stocked arsenal of talents that allows him to span a broad spectrum of the performing arts?

You can find out when Burnham is in town Tuesday Oct. 27 to do a show at Conexus Arts Centre. Curtain is at 8 p.m., and tickets are $45. You can find out more on the CAC website, and to give you a sense of what Burnham is like as a performer here’s a routine from 2014 called “Brain Split”
