Bo Burnham: Words, Words, Words (2010) - full transcript

The internet (and soon to be movie, TV, radio, etc.) phenomenon, Bo Burnham, brings you his first one-hour stand-up special "Bo Burnham: Words, Words, Words" from the House of Blues in Boston.

Thank you.

When I say hey, you say ho.

Thank you.

Thank you.

My ex-girlfriend
had a really weird fetish.

She used to like to dress up
as herself

and then act like
a fuckin' bitch all the time.

But you know,
they say if you wanna know

what a girl's gonna look like,
look at her mother,

you know, so I'm so glad
I broke up with her,

'cause she would've been,
you know...


I want your baby!

I'm keeping him.

Guys, I'm a realist!
I'm a realist.

I try not to romanticize

You know, like when life
gives you lemons,

you probably just found lemons.

But at the same time,

I don't deny the beauty
in the world

'cause there is so much beauty,
because life

can be so symmetrical,

it gives birth to this
almost silent poetry,

you know, like a hermaphrodite
playing the keytar,

or a young amish boy trying to
blow out the light bulbs

on his birthday cake,

or a girl... a girl
who's terrible at grammar

saying, "mama,
you raised me good."

And then being pushed
down a well.


Here's some racial humor
for you.

White people are like this...

Black people are like this...

We're destined to fight forever.
Blood in the streets.

If I had a dime... ha!

If I had a dime for every time
a homeless guy

asked me for change,
I'd still say, "no."

No. Nope.

Yo' mama so fat!
Yo' mama so ugly!

Yo' mama so stupid!

Your mother's breasts sag
with such severity

that the late great
surrealist artist Salvador dali

mistook them for clocks.

Um, thank you.

I... I believe...

I believe firmly
that women are always right.

I do. I do.

Oh, I should rephrase that.

I, uh...


♪ Men and women ♪

This song is called
"men and women"!

♪ Men are like vows ♪

♪ 'cause they're
easily broken ♪

♪ oh, yeah ♪

♪ women are like cows ♪

♪ 'cause they both have
vaginas ♪

♪ men are like muzzles ♪

♪ because they'll
try to shut you up ♪

♪ oh, yeah ♪

♪ women are like puzzles ♪

♪ 'cause prior to 1920,
neither had the right to vote ♪

♪ puzzles still don't ♪

♪ oh,
a man is an eagle ♪

♪ yeah,
a woman is a dove ♪

♪ women can fake orgasms ♪

♪ but men can fake love ♪

♪ Women are like fingers
and toes ♪

♪ 'cause they're easy
to count on ♪

It's cute.

♪ Men are like ravens
and crows ♪

♪ 'cause they hate
using condoms ♪


♪ Women are like yahtzees,
oh, yeah ♪

♪ 'cause I rarely get them ♪

I don't.

♪ Men are like Nazis ♪

♪ 'cause they both caused
the holocaust ♪

It's true.

♪ Oh, yeah ♪

♪ for every dollar
that a man makes ♪

♪ a woman makes 70 cents ♪

♪ that doesn't make sense,
that's not fair ♪

♪ the man's only left
with 30 ♪

♪ Men and women ♪

♪ oh, men and women,
it's black and white ♪

♪ with an area of gray
for hermaphrodite ♪

♪ oh, yeah ♪

♪ oh, well, yeah ♪

♪ male strippers ♪

♪ always look like
they're applying lotion ♪

♪ and female strippers when
they're dancing on the pole ♪

♪ just look like ♪

♪ confused firemen ♪


Thank you.

Pick that wedge!

I'm 19 years old.
I'm a young comedian.

I hate that term
"young comedian."

I prefer "prodigy."

And people pigeonhole me,

you know, as a comic,
which is so disingenuous.

'Cause I'm not a comedian.
I'm an artist.

And I don't do comedy shows.
I do one-man shows.

I've been doing them...
1998 was my first one-man show.

It was a show about Jews
in Nazi Germany

"under the floorboards."

No, no, no, watch and then judge.

This is a scene
from "under the floorboards."



Then in '99...

'99, I did a piece called
"the catholic orgasm."

I'll do a scene from that.

2000... um...

2000, I did a piece called
"the inappropriate musician."


Mike, back off the ledge, Mike.

Mike, think about your kids.

You want them to grow up
without a father?

Is that what you want, Mike?
Mike, please, listen to me!

I'm your friend! Mike!
Mike, no, Mike!

No, Mike!

He's saved.

And then in, um, 2001,

I did John steinbeck's
"the grapes of wrath,"

except I adapted it into a story

about an intergalactic sexual

called "the rapes of grath."

2002, I did a piece...

If you're familiar with
the piece "the elephant man"

I did a piece based off that
called "bulldog man"

and I'll do a monologue
from that right now.

2000, uh...

2000... thank you.
That was a good one.

I got a danza nomination
for that.

It's right after the Tonys.

2003 I did a piece

called "the native American
in the magic show."


2004, I did a piece called
"smeagol from lord of the rings

having sex with a black girl.

Oh! Precious.

Two thou...

2005, I did a piece called

"Charlie brown
getting molested."

What are you doing?
Hello, is anybody here?

What are you doing?
Let go of me!

What are you doing?!

Good grief!

So, 2000, um..

Thank you. Yeah.

That was a good one.

2005, 6? 5?

Doesn't matter.
I'm lying.


2006, I did a piece called
"the figure skater's father."

My son?
What does he do?

He's a, uh...

He's an athlete.

What kind of athlete?

He's a, uh...

He's a f...

He a...

He's a f...


2007, I did a piece called
"the juggler's wife."

"Please stop juggling!"


I did a dark piece that caused
a lot of controversy

because I played a slave
in the 1780s,

but I didn't wear makeup,
'cause as an artist,

I feel I'm qualified
to tell any story.

And it was
a piece called "whiplashes,"

and it's raw, hard art,
so if you're averse to that,

you might want to look away.

But this is the climactic scene
from "whiplashes."

You'll have to answer
to god for this.


You're a dick.

And then, um...

2009, which is the final piece

before the piece
I'm doing currently, um...

I did a really emotional piece.

It means a lot to me,
so forgive me if I break down,

but it's called
the "the boy and his dog."

It goes like this.

Get out of here, all right?
Go, please.

I can't afford to keep you
anymore, I just can't.

Just... don't make this harder
than it has to be.

Just... I hate you.

Is that what you need
to hear from me?

I hate you, okay?
I hate you.

I hate you!

And it's just not me.

My dog hates Mexicans, too.

Oh, god.
Gotta love irony.

I, um...

I believe in the zodiac.

I do, I do, completely.

I'm a Leo.
I love "Titanic."

But this is something
a little bit morbidly ironic.

My grandmother,
she was a cancer,

and she was actually killed

by a giant crab.

This is a song
about the idea of irony.

So strap in.

Thank you, it's a medium.


We live in a binary reality.
We do.

It's a world of black and white.

There's only two types
of people in this world,

you know,
those who can finish lists...

What is art?
What is art?

Is art something gay people do
to get back at their fathers?

Could be.
What is an artist?

What makes a great artist,
great artists like myself,

like the great director
Michael bay.

Like the great Irish actor,
Shaquille O'Neal.

We ask questions, you know?

Questions nobody else
dares to ask.

Questions like...

Where are all
the sour patch parents?

Questions like
if Mickey's a mouse

and minnie's a mouse,
and Donald's a duck,

and Daisy and goofy,
if they're all animals,

and they can talk,
why is pluto just a fuckin' dog?

Why... did they just forget to
anthropomorphize him, or worse,

is Mickey keeping a mentally
handicapped dude as pet?

I'm not making light of it.
That's fucked up.

How does it fit into
that universe, that paradigm?

Goofy's a dog. He's talking.
This one, crawling around.

Guys, I would never bash Disney.
I would never bash Disney.

I think Disney teaches
young kids

such important lessons.

The Princess fairy tales
teach young girls

such important lessons.

You know, like cinderella,

it doesn't matter
where you come from

or how poor you are as long
as you're incredibly hot.

Snow white, you know, which
encourages children to,

you know,
give midgets nicknames.

Sleeping beauty, you know,

which encourages, uh...

Date rape.

Maybe not... maybe not that one.

I was doing a show recently
on the border

of Hannah, Montana,
and south Dakota fanning.

And a guy came up to me
after the show,

and said, "Bo, why don't
you ever tell stories

about people coming up to you
after the show?"

And I said,
"'cause they're never funny."

I would fuck you.

This is a listening show.



Be quiet, america doesn't
want to hear you clap.

Do it, though, when I need it.

When I need it!

I've always wanted
a black girlfriend,

not as joke, just 'cause like,

then when we 69,
I can call it "yin yanging."

Guys, see...

Easy, look,
it's 21st-century racism.

It's racism in light of itself.

The only reason I'm making these
claims is because the stigmas

about race are already there
and I'm just playing off that.

'Cause I think racism itself
is so ridiculous,

and they understand that,
so if after the show,

you see a black guy
beating me up,

he's doing it ironically.


I'll sleep with you!

We all will!

Ya done?

Of course all the women that
said that were in the dark.

I, um...

No, I bet you're gorgeous
in the dark.

What the fuck?

Let US pray.

Don't feel like
you can't participate,

by the way,
if you're not Christian,

'cause this is a prayer
for all faiths, so...

Dear Jesus of nazareth...

First of all,
I'd like to thank you

for calling yourself
Jesus of nazareth.

It's sort of like the lord
of the rings or something.

"I am Jesus of nazareth,
son of orflek, the butcher."

We know, lord, that you so
loved the world from John 3:16,

you so loved the world
that you sent your only son

to die for US, your only son,
but at the same time,

we're all your children,
so in your eyes,

we're a bunch of girls.

So help US as we struggle

with the temptations
of lesbianism, amen.

I, uh...

People come to me all the time...
All the time,

they say the same thing,
you know,

"Bo, you're an artist.
How do we fix Africa?"

I read recently that there are
over 22 million people

living with HIV aids
in Sub-Saharan Africa.

It was a snapple fact.

How do we fix it?
How do we fix it?


Because laughter...

Laughter is the best medicine,

you know, besides medicine.

You guys like impressions?


That was socrates.

We've done a lot of laughing...
Lot of laughing.

Great for a comedy show.
Hey, break the fourth wall.

Fifth wall... ma'am at home.

We've done a lot of...
We've done a lot of laughing.

But we haven't done a lot
of thinking.

And I'd like to do that now,
and what better

to stop comic inertia than
a little bit of poetic friction?

I've written some haikus.

Haikus are Japanese poems
consisting of 17 syllables,

3 lines, 5, 7, 5.

I find them to have a certain
clearness in their cogency,

sort of a soundness in their
simplicity, if you will.

So what we'll do now hopefully
is read these haikus,

think for a little bit,
and then we'll go back

to the jokes and the laughing

and we'll have benefited
from the time we took to think.

So if could just, you know,

put up with these,
think for a bit, hopefully,

and then we'll go back
to the jokes,

but these are my haikus.

I saw a rainbow
on the day my grandma died.

Fucking lesbian.

For 15 cents a day,
you can feed an African.

They eat pennies.

Old people's skin sags

because it is being
pulled towards the underworld.

Missed that.

A kid insulted my mother
so I said,

"your mama is so black!"

"Do unto others as you would
have them do to you."

Said the rapist.

My aunt used to say,
"slow and steady wins the race."

She died in a fire.

Those in glass houses
shouldn't throw stones

or masturbate in the daytime.

It's true.

Even if he is your friend,

never, ever call
an Asian person.

And finally...

Bono, if you wanna help
poor people,

sell your tinted shades,
you cunt.

Thank you, this next piece...

This next piece is called
"sonnet 155"

or "if Shakespeare
had written a porn."

And it goes like this.

I saw the morning dew
betwixt thine thighs

as I removed my source
of grecian power.

As if king midas
dared to touch the skies,

upon thy body fell
a golden shower.

Thy body's temple's
two church bells had rung.

Upon thy chest,
a roll of pearls bestowed.

The sun had set,
thy set with weary hung.

I thought, how black a night,
and blew a load.

I said what light through yonder
beaver breaks?

It is the yeast.

And now my belly's yellow.

My pole gives cause
to storms and earthy quakes,

but 'tis not massive,
I am no othello.

And when that final moment
came to pass,

like Christ,
I came a-riding on an ass.

Thank you very much.

Thank you,
William Shakespeare...

William Shakespeare
was a verbal contortionist.

He can bend his words

the way a contortionist
bends his frame,

and I would hope that he could

with a name
like William Shakespeare.

William Shakespeare...
Some of you seem lost.

Look, say your name
was Robert frost,

and you couldn't write,
that would suck.

Well, I guess you could always
go as Bobby frost

and own an ice cream truck.

He was balanced like a simile
and could stack metaphor five,

six at a time and rhyme

into the very last line
of a soliloquy

which finally said outright
what the previous 77

we're only hinting at.

He had puns and quips
and tons of trips

with sons with ships,

with nuns with hips
and buns and lips,

but I have something
that Shakespeare never had.


See, it hadn't been
invented yet.

Back then, they only had
quillicillin, hey-oh!

Sorry, it's not that hard, bard.

I'm sorry, I got a bone
to pick with you, William.

So if you could just
listen up here

and listen to this theater
queer's theater query here

and maybe act like a real artist
for once in your life.

Say Van gogh and,
"lend me your ear."

You're not a writer.

You're a writer like
hulk hogan's a street fighter.

You write these dramas,
you accumulate your wealth,

you hold nature
as t'were mirror of yourself.

Just 'cause you're messed up
doesn't mean we are, too.

Just 'cause you wanna bang
your mom

doesn't mean
that Danish princes do.

What? Who? Hamlet, Shakespeare.
Yeah, that's right.

The young prince
whose father died

at the hands of his uncle
with whom his mother lied.

Sound familiar?
It's the fucking "lion king"!

You stole from a Disney movie,
you androgynous douche.

What's next,
the story of a French king

on a quest
to find his lost son Nemo?

Oh, and by the way, poetic
talent is really easy to fake

when thy sentences
doth no fucking sense make.

"To be or not to be?"
That is the question.

Whether 'tis nobler
in the mind to suffer

the slings and arrows
of outrageous fortune,

or to take arms against
a sea of troubles,

and by opposing end them,
to die...

To sleep no more,
and by a sleep,

to say we end the heartache
and the thousand natural shocks

that flesh is heir to.

'Tis a consummation devoutly
to be wish'd.

To die, to sleep,
to sleep, perchance to dream.

Aye, there's the rub,
for in that sleep of death,

what dreams may come

when we have shuffled off
this mortal coil?

Must give US pause.

Like, what?

This next song
is about quantum mechanics.

This next song...

I was raised very well,
you know, like a field of corn.

I was also raised
very Christian,

like the children of the corn.

And christians get angry at me,
they do,

because I say things like,

"why the long nose,

They think
I'll gonna go to hell.

Truth is,
I've been to Christian hell,

and I wrote a song about it.

♪ Hitler was there,
and so were all the Jews ♪

♪ yeah, so it got
a little awkward ♪

I was surrounded by catholicism
at a young age

and I was also in a garage band
for 20 minutes.

This is the product of that.
Hit it.

I wanted to be a physicist
when I was younger,

and I also wanted to be
a comedian,

but only one of those
sort of worked out.

I'd like to try to do both,
though now

in a bit that I call
"theoretical dick jokes."

Goes like this.

My penis is so small
I often have trouble finding it

because it's so gratefully
influenced by

quantum mechanical fluctuations
in the fabric of space-time.

And when I'm having intercourse
with a woman,

she can only know where my penis
is or how fast it's moving

'cause it's small enough
and light enough to be fully

governed by the Heisenberg
uncertainty principle.

I've got an eating disorder.

Yeah, more like
nutritional entropy.


Never said I was funny, okay?
So stop staring at me.

Segues are weird.

How old is too old
to stop believing in, like,

the tooth fairy, like, 12?

I have a cousin who is 18, yeah.

Still believes in gay marriage.

It's like...

I know what you guys
are thinking...

"oh, Bo, you tackle
such taboo subjects.

You know,
"is there anything off-limits,

"anything you don't find funny,

anything you think
is too sacred to laugh at?"

And the truth is, there is.

White people.

I think we've been
through enough.

I find numbers to be fascinating

and more specifically
than numbers, I find statistics

to be particularly enlightening,
thought-provoking even.

I've gathered some here.
These are all 100% true.

When you leave this theater and
enter the world devoid of art,

you can check these,
and they will come back

'cause they are true.

I don't want them
to blow your mind,

but maybe you'll hear
one of these and go,

"oh, my god,
never thought of that."

So these are my statistics.

Approximately 33.33%

of the Jonas brothers
have diabetes.

One out of every four kids
with the initials a.D.D.

Actually has it,
and four out of four kids

with the initials a.D.H.D.
Have an annoying,

self-righteous mother who
wouldn't just shut the fuck up

and take her husband's
last name.

Here's a fun one.

One of the every 44
u.S. Presidents can dunk.

It's Millard Fillmore,
you racists.

The average child of Sarah Palin
has 46.2 chromosomes.

It's a fact!

I'm not making light of it.
It's numbers.

All right, you guys are offended
by that one,

you're definitely gonna be
offended by the next one.

But you have to understand

I am, too.

I think this is fucked up.

.27% of all jenga games
are played on 9/11.


It's fucked up!
Stop playing jenga on 9/11.

Stop it. Stop it.

Stop playing jenga...

That was awkward.

This next one blew my mind.
Blew my mind.

And you're not gonna
believe this when you hear it.

But go home, check it.
I swear to god it's true.

The average person...

Has one fallopian tube.

The average penis length
is 5 1/2 inches.

And finally, the average
penis length of a man

who googles "average
penis length" is 3 1/2 inches.

Thank you.

Yeah, Bo!

Yeah, Bo!


Thank you.

I went to the movies the other
day because I went to see

the 20th anniversary
of "schindler's list" in 3-d.

And I went into the girls'
bathroom to look for my camera.

And I saw a container that
said "sanitary napkins only."


Don't put all your eggs
in one basket!

That's a joke!

This song...

This song isn't funny at all,
but it helps me sleep at night.

Old comics...
Older comics from, like,

the '80s and the '70s,
they think that my act is hacky

because it relies
on music and other things,

and they're such comedy purists,

and they don't think my comedy
can stand on its own,

which isn't true because, right,

I am a comedy purist at heart,

and I can do comedy
without the gimmicks.

And it can still be good.
I'll show you that right now.

What do you call a kid
with no arms and an eye patch?


I'm not a traditional stand-up,
um, but I'd like to be.

I love traditional
stand-up comedy,

and a lot of my heroes
are traditional stand-up comics,

and I've been watching
a lot of it,

and I think I've sort of
figured out the trick to it.

So I'll give you my traditional
stand-up act now.

It's in its infancy
so please be gentle.


My wife, right?

We never have sex, like, ever,
which is funny.

Something else is I never know
what she's saying.

You know, she'll say something,
and I'll be, like...

Something else is, she's, like,
constantly emasculating me,

and I'm making her resent
herself for getting older,

so we're looking into a divorce,
which is funny.

Something else
is she can't drive.

The only thing she can drive
is drive me crazy!

You know, when she back-talks,
I hit her.

I hope you all enjoyed the show.

Thank you so much for coming,
and if you didn't, you know...

When life gets you down...

Make a comforter.

I feel like hip-hop...

Used to be a voice
for the voiceless, you know?

And now it's become,
at least in the mainstream,

a symbol of misogyny...

Gay panic...

Fiscal irresponsibility,
you know?

So I figure...

If you can't beat 'em, join 'em.
