Bo Burham – “All Eyes on Me”

Is the comedian and singer Bo Burnham a living oxymoron? Is it possible for something to be disconcertingly comforting? Burnham’s latest release, “All eyes on me”, represents the emotional climax of the Netflix stay-at-home Covid series ‘Inside’ and offers a peek into the mind of someone who has hit rock bottom. It’s shockingly intimate, including a spoken word section where Bo confesses to his struggles with mental health. The catchy pop melody and laugh track combined with the nihilistic tone and sadness in the visuals leaves the listener reeling, but we rubberneck at his claustrophobic world nonetheless. Burnham is full of contradictions and in the process of chewing them out, he is relating with an ever-widening audience.
