Bo Burnham: Inside

Bo Burnham: Inside ★★★★

Bo Burnham's pandemic-based Netflix special should not be this damn good. On paper it sounds nauseating - an hour and a half of comedy songs interspersed between loose vignettes all shot on his lonesome during this horrendous pandemic.
It's to his credit that it is anything but - even when it starts to veer towards grating or a song becomes annoying, it's addressed, and Burnham flips to a darker revelation that eventually turns this into a pretty damn sad pandemic flick.

Incredibly ambitious, and yet never leaves the scope of just someone trying to maintain their sanity by setting up cameras to film themselves in their empty house.
