I know a dude whose last name is Kracker (yeah, he's white on top of that), and we usually called each other by last name because we had multiple cases of same first name. It's awkward when we forget and do it in public- especially if trying to get his attention (and I'm not white for bonus awkward).
You by any chance "John Maniga"? I can already see the skit
Holy...I never thought about it until you said that, but your comment made me realize if I say his full name fast, it sounds like "My Cracker", I shit you not!
Could explain for an european?
This explains far better than I can, the tldr version is that in America, it's a racial epithet aimed at white people :
WTF never heard of it. Thank you
I knew a guy who's last name was Cuntz
Who is this?
No no no. It's the black Tim Curry
Would've made Home Alone 2 a lot more colorful.
Leglerg fast, wat du?
but here comes an f1 reference
thieving son of a bitch
Who would’ve thought he was a junkie
What a smart ass lol. But shit was funny
My ex sister in law watches her neighbors dog. His name is guzzler. Have fun calling when he runs away.
"come here Guzzler"
I don't see it?
You don't have to call them names just cause they didn't get the joke...
No, they're talking about the bitch
Thas not nithe
Cum guzzler! Not you.. the dog..!
Don’t talk about his bitch like that, I’m sure she’s a nice lady.
It just doesn't work lol no one says come like that to their dogs. They would just say here or come here at most.
It’s funny because the N-word is forbidden amongst Caucasians…and he’s forcing them to say it. That devilish little prankster.
Bo Burnham did a funny with that to the audience on one of his shows on Netflix
My favorite sandwich peanut butter and...? Jelly!
My favorite chips are salt and vin...? Negar!
I love Bo
[Who said it?!](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AI4AC50n6cU)
I never watched bo Burnham I always hear people talking about him but I think i thought he was like a Jeff Foxworth or that weird guy with his hand in the dolls ass. what kind-of comedian is bo and what should I watch first
Seriously you need to give a lot of his stuff a watch, he's funny and sends some deep messages..
point me in the direction of what to watch I just ate some nerd rope
His Netflix special “make happy” is really good if you’re more into a comedy show… and of course his newest stuff is great but it’s kinda deep and can get a little dark, it can be less comedy and more performance art drama.
I saw this live in Sacramento and it made all of us cry! And I'm jealous of my best friend because he asked for an audience participation thing and she yelled out "Wolf Dick" and he heckled her for trying to use his opening acts material in his act. It was gollllld
Nobody is gonna point this man in the right direction after he's asked twice!? I say start from the beginning bro. You'll be able to see his comedy evolve. The first one is comedy central presents bo Burnham. If you only have certain streaming apps, just pick the earliest one on there.
Heads up, if you watch "Inside", his latest specials, it gets really deep and not so happy go lucky. It's when he was stuck inside for covid
Seriously. In order from “what.” to Make Happy to Inside would be the best way to approach his content. The Kanye Rant at the end of Make Happy might be the best thing he’s ever made. But it’s truly hard to pick.
I agree with this order entirely.
Pretty sure What was my favorite
I just listened to the rant on my way home from work earlier. It's very powerful and I try not to listen to it too often so it doesn't lose the power. I always end up crying by the end.
It's weird that you would say start from the beginning, and not point directly to bo yo.
Holy shit I've never seen this! I'm not super well versed in Bo's early stuff, so that was cool to see!
400mg THC nerd rope? I accidentally ate one of those once. I could see sounds
yeah one time I ate one playing golf and I think I either shot a 67 or 185
I shot a young Vietnamese fella 67 times.
That nerd rope make you wild the fuck out brother

I'll keep adding but getting this submitted now.

[The Inside Outtakes](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5XWEVoI40sE) its about an hour long.. havent watched this one.. but he rarely disappoints.
[His playlist on youtube](https://www.youtube.com/user/boburnham/playlists?view=71&sort=dd&shelf_id=0)
I tried to cater this list to not just his most popular videos, but its hard not to find something good of his. I would recommend just finding his 'Specials' i know theres 1 or 2 on netflix.. they're not all fully songs, he does talk about topics and issues. but usually folows up with a related song.
I hope this peaks your interest to seek out more of his work. cheers..
Don't listen to these people. You don't start with Inside. You start with words words words.
I agree. I actually didn't like Inside all that much. I think What might have been my favorite.
Whichever one has the stoned versus drunk making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich
I wasn’t crazy about inside either until I gave it another watch. I don’t think it’s funniest stuff, but the production value is phenomenal and I think it’s his most poignant work. But I can see how that’s not for everyone.
That being said, I’m surprised at the lack of acknowledgement that “what.” is getting in this thread. Imo that’s his best special.
Lol i had EXACTLY the same thought at all the same time!!
I was like..."Oh! That's who Bo Burnham is?!?"
I thought he was a comic like Larry the Cable Guy.
Noooo lmao bo burham is philosophical, insightful, existential, current, deep, kind of dark under the surface of what makes you laugh, really makes you think sometimes, satirical. His musical bits are the best too.
His comedy is one of a kind and very nuanced. I love it. Do a few specials before Inside. Inside isn't a comedy show tbh. It's a side show dark carnival, in the best way imaginable. Dude 1000% deserved his Grammy. How he blurred the lines between comedy, mental health, and existentialism.. I don't know if we'll ever see anything quite like it again. And it definitely captured a lot of how people felt being in quarantine isolated from each other. It is a beautiful flower that he gave us that is also tragic in some of the hardest times of our collective lives during the height of the pandemic.
[My personal favorite is “Art is Dead”.](https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Eo9pU1q8sy8)
That’s Jeff Dunham. Bo…. I’m not sure how to explain his style of comedy. Its late and I’m tired so can’t quite think right.
just compare him to someone I know. even though you don't know who I know
He makes comedy music that’s very funny and sarcastic but then suddenly touching and earnest. Also made the movie eighth grade.
"White Woman's Instagram" is somehow one of the funniest and also most sincere and touching comedy bits I've ever seen
IDK if id *compare* them, but he definitely deeply reveres George Carlin.
Inside on Netflix
One of my favorites of his, I'm Bo Yo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z-ap5Fp2T6c
He started as a youtuber making comedic songs such as [Bo Yo](https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Z-ap5Fp2T6c), then eventually moved on to performing many of his songs live. He's a talented musician who's clever as hell, so most of his comedy is in the style of music.
However his recent style is more of a performance show than just a series of comedy songs. It's still centered around the music, but there's lots of visual gags, play with the lighting, many sound queues. It's a full hour of straight scripted, timed performance where he does many songs, but they vary in style from almost spoken word, to more poetry, to just normal piano songs.
My favorite show is What, which is on Netflix, then there's Make Happy which is similar but a bit more of a serious tone and references his mental health. Then the most recent one is Inside, a Netflix special where he does the entire hour long show in one room, commenting about the state of the world, the depression that comes with Covid lock downs, and his still declining mental health. It's significantly more "real" and every song has some sort of social commentary, whether it has a comedic or serious tone.
His music is catchy, he's incredibly creative and clever, and a damn good musician. I can't recommend him enough, but you should start with "What" -> "Make Happy" -> "Inside" which is the chronological order, but you can also see his progression from an un-breaking stage persona, to revealing his true nature behind the scenes and his struggles through music.
People are recommending his more recent stuff, but check out "What?" it's a great blend of his music and comedy
I've been a Bo burnham fan since he was 15 making videos on Youtube when Youtube first came out. Whatever you end up watching first, please report back with your thoughts!
If someone had asked me to name the comedian that is most *unlike* Bo Burnam, good chance I'd have gone with Jeff Foxworthy.
So... I worked at a comedy club.
Bo Burnham is almost like a Mitch Hedberg where there's a lot of things he says that you're like "That's dumb, but also funny", there's a lot of wordplay, there's also a kind of "George Carlin" where he can joke about what society is too afraid to say, though he does it through "wordplay" rather than "edgy". He's not going to say "the 7 things you can't say on TV", but he might say "today's version" while not actually saying it at all.
IMHO he's probably the greatest comedian to get popular after Greg Giraldo died.
Also the point blank, deadpan social observations are so similar to Greg Giraldo.
He's clearly intelligent. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_px_2mXKry0 (Him on Conan)
Bo is a comedian who basically embraces his depression in a fun way while also speaking/singing some of the greatest fucking truths out there, his songs can make you happy while also making you sad and if you really analyze his songs and performances you realize how fucking deep that dude really is. Like, take his latest special "Inside" which he made during the pandemic. It's a fucking masterpiece of cinematography, he plays with slow zooms, focus and lights to portrait different emotions while singing a stupid song about a White woman's Instagram (as one example).
Same with his song "Welcome to the internet" where he starts with luring the user in by offering all the good stuff of the internet, then as we slow zoom closer it picks up in pace and mixes in more and more of the dark side of things until we are in his face and "stuck" and then all hell unleashes.
Also, when I'm down and just want to stop fighting I really enjoy the song "Can't handle this" by Bo
His original songs back in the day, new math, love is... Growing into deeper songs like ironic, art is dead, then going into a more comedic dramatic deep dark art. Seeing him come up from a young teen to where he is now is what will really make you appreciate who he is. You can see how jaded life has made him.
Ave he can't even make this joke anymore!
This was like a week ago
Yeah, and he is making the joke while claiming he can't make this joke anymore.
Ope, I see what you were saying now. My bad, got baby brain
I read this comment in Chappelle’s white guy voice
look at him. he loves it
Why are you replying to someone who clearly understood the joke with an explanation of why it was funny?
I’d be so lost with you’re explanation
Thank you sir
You’ve done this world a great service.
Aaayyy, look at you explaining the entirety of the joke. Thanks from those of us born without a funny bone
Gee thanks for explaining that.
Thank you captain obvious!
Shoot, can I hire you explain every joke to me? I’d love to see you explain each joke from Eddie Murphy’s “Raw”
See, when the GI Joe toy in the bathtub swims into the brown cave, that's Eddie Murphy as a child putting a toy in his butt.
[except the actual dog named N-word owned by white people lol](https://youtu.be/QgePEO7GUtE)
No way, thanks for helping me understand the joke.
Yeah I liked it, like a bland version of Patrice O'Neal.
I'm racist, but...
I'm a white guy, my grandmother had a dog named Blackie in Paterson, NJ.
We were about 5 minutes into trying to find that dog when us younger folk were like "Uhm, no... I'm not doing this."
For anyone looking for the source, look up Snoop Dogg's comedy special on Netflix. Fucking hilarious!

That’s what VPN’s are for.

YES! And that brings me to today’s sponsor, NordVPN…
Oh yeah, easy access to any countries catalog

Lmao is this an ad?
Yes, I wouldn't be surprised if these upvotes came from bots. Most VPNs don't work with Netflix for longer than a couple days before their IPs get banned, and they have to change servers again. If you don't already pay for a VPN for some other reason, then please don't subscribe to one just to access Netflix

NORD VPN SURF SHARK THANKS YOUTUBE
We got it here in the Netherlands
I am in Europe and I just saw it on Netflix.
Who is the comedian?
Best set on that special
What's it called and on which platform?
Snoop Dogg's comedy special on Netflix. I can't remember what it was called exactly.
Snoop Dogg’s f*cn around comedy special on Netflix
On what platform? Is the new: on what channel?
DeRae Davis has been underrated for years. He obviously won't sell out MSG, but damn that dude is funny.
I remember him from BET late night comedy in the 90's.
He was always my favorite along with Deon Cole.
Just so happens they’re from the same era in Chicago along with Corey Holcomb, Adelle Givins, George Wilborn, Bernie Mac, and a couple more hitters in the comedy game
Is Deon Cole the guy with the notepad skits? I love that guy he's hilarious
I liked ashy larry's set a lot, his shit about katt williams had me rolling

H.P. Lovecraft looking for his cat
Holy shit 🤣
But seriously, Lovecraft was that extra extra racist.
Shame he died early, he was on a real redemption arc towards the later months of his life. He became thoroughly disillusioned with his former worldviews after the collapse of the second KKK in 25 and Hitlers rise to power over the early 30s. Then the depression happened and he lost faith in capitalism. [He became a socialist](https://i.redd.it/hawn82xubm581.jpg), renounced most of his former racism and [really really fucking hated his younger self for it:](https://github.com/punchmonster/Lovecraft-Letters/blob/master/19370207-Catherine-L-Moore.md)
> Little Willis asked permission to publish the text in his combined SFC-Fantasy, & I began looking the thing over to see what it was like—for I had not the least recollection of ever having penned it. Well .... I managed to get through, after about 10 closely typed pages of egotistical reminiscences & showings-off & expressions of opinion about mankind & the universe. I did not faint—but I looked around for a 1924 photograph of myself to burn, spit on, or stick pins in! Holy Hades—was I that much of a dub at 33 ... only 13 years ago? There was no getting out of it—I really had thrown all that haughty, complacent, snobbish, self-centered, intolerant bull, & at a mature age when anybody but a perfect damned fool would have known better! That earlier illness had kept me in seclusion, limited my knowledge of the world, & given me something of the fatuous effusiveness of a belated adolescent when I finally was able to get out more around 1920, is hardly much of an excuse. Well—there was nothing to be done ..... except to rush a note back to Conover & tell him I'd dismember him & run the fragments through a sausage-grinder if he ever thought of printing such a thing!
If only he hadn't died as young as he did we could have gotten some really cool fiction out of him, inspired by this redemption arc.
Holy Hades lmaooo totally using that from now on. I also very much enjoyed reading someone's thoroughly written down horror and embarrassment at realising exactly how terrible his younger self was. Thanks for putting that in the comments here
"The only way the handful of defeated greed-worshippers could ever regain power would be through a shrewdly organised fascist movement based on primitive emotional appeals of the religio-hysteric type(waving the flag, rousing nominal Christians against "Jewish intellectualism", exciting native-Americans against "Catholic-Irish-Jewish [or whatever foreign element predominates in any particular section] democracy", exciting Catholics against "materialistic communism", exciting provincial pride against "decadent European innovations" &c. &c.)"
Oef that hits too close to home and I'm not even and American that actually has to deal with the republicans he predicted
As an avid sci-fi fan, I would have loved to find out what the undertones were in some of the creatures he created and what stereotypes they were attributed to. I know that would be really awkward for some, but I’m morbidly curious.
It very clearly influenced certain stories like The Shadows over Innsmouth where a big part of the horror is different creatures intermixing
Definitely, he wrote great stories, but no way I'm reading Rats in the Walls out loud.
I understand. Reading Lovecraft when you black be like:
lmfaooooooo fr though. lovecraft was a bit fucked
Just a tad
Well you gotta be a bit fucked to come up with the stuff he did, I suppose.
Can you explain please?
Edit: never mind.
Sorry you had to find out this way, dude
Funnier than the clip lmao
I'm too high to be watching this right now
Hi, How high are you?
"HIGH ON AMERICAN SPIRIT"
High, how hi are you?
High, Iam fine. How are you?
Hi fine, high are you?
Hi Fine, how am i?
Fine, who are you?
Iam you. Thanks for asking. Who are you?
Higher than a giraffe ass!
Right you are Ken.
Didn't HP Lovecraft name his dog n*****man?
Thanks for the correction. Twas a cat, not dog.
Imagine white men running around the park screaming the N word.
Something about a pack of white dudes running around yelling "Where you at N****? It's time to go back to your owner!" just doesn't seem like it would be a good look.
That's really funny and also I imagine orgy in the burn ward is just full of screams
Did I read this right? An orgy in the burn ward?… this has to be the first time someone’s said this.
Nah, heard some riggers complaining about a planned lift on a job site and one of them said it was a 'worse idea than a burn ward orgy.'
Did you just say a slur?
You kidding? That's an average Tuesday in the South.
You’re gonna hurt a lot of feelings ngl
West-coast born-and-raised. I witnessed such rampant racism only when I moved to Georgia, "Bless their hearts".
Well, I live in Alabama and....
No one needs to imagine Modesto.
That's what the video told us to do, yes
I ain't low
Just don't add the hard R
Him and Kat were pretty much the only two funny comedians on there.
What's this from?
Snoop doggs standup special on netflix
When I was a kid, my uncle and aunt had a pitch-black little dog and named it blackie. It seemed fitting. Until they started calling out for it in the park.
He has beautiful eyes.
You know you’re funny when you got snoop dying on your set
hes literally perma high. you think its hard to make that man laugh?
GET YO ASS BACK HERE N*GGA
"I lost mine too"
"Your dog too?"
"But I don't own a dog"
(sweating profusely 😥)
TMW you realize he's dressed exactly like Franklin from GTA 5...
This is a perfect example of a joke about race and racism. It’s funny but the humor isn’t really at anyone’s expense and it doesn’t repeat racist stereotypes.
I sure hope none of the white people actually help this dude look for his dog and wander too far off, or it’s an ass beating
Playing with racism will get you harmed physically or killed in America now..
I had a neighbor one time who was waking through the neighborhood yelling “Rape” we run to her assistance…turns out her dogs name was RAY
An actual good race joke
It turns that the entire time you could make fun of absolutely anything so long as you make it, ya know, funny.
If you're surprised you need to get out more
_H.P. Lovecraft has entered the chat_
I'm calling my dog Help.
Race is a punchline where I work. The amount of shit we've said to each other would blow your mind. We all laugh, fuck with another dude, and work.
Plenty of Redditors would love to help.
I tell people my dog's name is Nikka. It works just the same....lol.
I always keep my n*gga on leash.
This is from snoop dogs comedy special on Netflix which came out like 2 weeks ago…it’s a must watch.
I've been trying to find a clip of a comedian who had a bit where he would start a phrase and have the audience finish it. It ended with him saying "salt and vi-" and the crowd of hundreds of people shouting "-negar!!!!"
To be honest this seems like a really common joke so it's possible Bo wasn't who you were thinking of but he is the one I remembered immediately.
That's the one! Thank you!
