JaackMaate : This is the most intricate piece of both comedy and self-awareness I have ever seen.

Sofia Aviles : “Come and watch the skinny kid with a steadily declining mental health and laugh as he attempts to give you what he can not give himself.” Nobody in the audience was ready for that.

KannaBis Kamui : This went from hilarious to incredibly deep quickly.

A Google user : Every time I watch this I get chills. I feel this in my own way as well. Wishing you all the happiness life has to offer

Jeff Kaplan Main 123456789 : The only time i have heard autotune that sounds good

vlogbrothers : This is the best work of art made about Internet celebrity I've ever come across. So incredibly hard to be this clear-thinking about the many-tentacled beast of fame. -John

Eric Beckwith II : Greatest use of auto-tune ever.

nonsens : Holy crap... the transition from him being honest and telling about his own personal issues, to where he says "I should probably just shut up and do my job, so here I'll go..." and starts singing the comedic chorus, hits pretty hard. Definitely not what the crowd expected. Bo Burnham is truly an original artist.

Hardest Man Alive : A++ job to the people who ran the lighting for this show because daaaaammnnn is the lighting beautiful But A++++ job to Bo because he managed to make a song that can make people burst out laughing and burst out crying. A song that can make you so happy, yet so sad. A song that has a Pringles joke and yet still manages to be upsetting. And most importantly, a song that makes you appreciate just how great Bo is as a performer and a person, he gets really sad and anxious and yet he still gets on stage and performs for his fans. Thank you Bo You tall beautiful man

Jonathan Ayyoub : "Look at them, they're just staring at me, like come and watch the skinny kid with a steadily declining mental health and laugh as he attempts to give you what he cannot give himself." "They don't need to know half of this." That broke my heart to pieces.

LordDraconical : I dont think that I can handle this right now

Nicolas Garcia : Doctor: you have 7 minutes and 24 seconds to live. Me: 0:00

Pizza Sloth : This is one of the best artists of today's generation. Yes, he's making fun of Kanye... but this is also his goodbye to stand-up comedy (not forever). He's off making his movie(8th Grade), but this was his goodbye to something he's done for a very long time. All he has ever tried to do is make people happy. He began trying to make his brother happy while he was in the army. He never expected to blow up like he did. He never expected to HAVE to make people happy. But that's what happened, and he lived and struggled through years, just to keep us entertained. And godamnit, did you make us proud Bo. One day, I hope to see a new standup from you, but whatever happens, make sure you.... make happy and "stay happy".

Genesisx3x : Started as a song about can, ended as a song about how you cannot.

RockLou : I'm just here for my daily viewing

Porçay : The most thrilling thing about this is when you watch it again and again you're seeing the finale part is slowly building up through the whole thing. And then you remember how chords and words he planted in there are gonna end up at the end. Sends a chill down your spine.

Emily Hughes : if you’ve seen the whole show of “make happy”, you’ll hear bo saying ‘sorry’ after some of his jokes or songs. he shouldn’t have to apologize for doing his job, or saying what he wants to say. it just makes me sad that people get so offended at the smallest things, they literally force him to apologize at what makes him happy

Scout 9301 : Bo Burnham is the most underrated/under appreciated comedian of all time

Charles Nichols : you can tell that this song let out a lot of pent up emotion, especially towards the end. those yells weren't for musical effect they were throaty and raw and it was honestly painful to hear. but I'm so glad we have Bo and I'm so glad he was able to say what he thought because so many artists don't and then they have to internalize that forever. thank you Bo Burnham.

Long Wu : I see a lot of comments saying how the pringle can and burrito is a methaphor, but i think they are missing the point or over analyzing. In my opinion, this is a brilliantly structured act. All the jokes in front was to build up to the moment when he said "I pretend my biggest problem is pringle cans" and it was mocking how ungrateful people are and complain about trivial things and get offended by it. But at the same time(including himself), hide away what really bother them. Our need for love, purpose, approval, and our insecurities, sadness, loneliness.(For him, and maybe most artists: his position as an artist and his relationship with his audiences) For me after all his videos, he isn't a comedian, he is the most entertaining philosopher.

Are U Super Cereal : This dude is seriously a legend. Not only do the viewers get a stand up comedy show like no other, but we also get a straight up full blown concert with amazing lighting and camera work. Well done sir, without a doubt still one of my all time favorite comics/performers! <3

CommunityServesUs : When he exerts a passionate scream. Kills me.

Jenny T20 : In an interview at Vidcon this year, Bo said that his movie, Eight Grade, is trying to show a more straightforward and humane interpretation of how this modern generation is with social media, while his comedic material was more satirical. He discusses how the internet has different sides to it, and how, yes, it can ruin how people interact, but it also is a great thing that brings people together and inspires people. He said that in his stand up comedy, he had to focus on the bad and make fun of it because that's what people laugh at. "I couldn't just go up there and say 'I feel two things at once, bye!'." Make Happy was his last stand up comedy special, with (as many of you know) this song being the last. This song highlights him feeling different things about his world, not just how social media works, but on him and his relationship with his audience. With social media, people are basically surrounded by an audience all the time- their lives, or what they show of their lives, are being projected to so many people (especially on YouTube). And that has it's positives and negatives (which were also discussed in the interview- social media has made people judge themselves and others based off numbers, but it also gives us better ways to be inspired and connect to people like them), and in most of Bo's specials, he focused more on the negatives. But with Make Happy, and especially this song, he decided to kind of express himself more honestly. "I wanna please you, but I wanna stay true to myself. I want to give you the night out that you deserve, but I wanna say what I think and not care what you think about it. A part of me loves you, a part of me hates you, a part of me needs you, a part of me fears you." He's contradicting himself, he's thinking two things at the same time, and it's too chaotic for him. This is also kind of hinted upon in Left-Right Brain- he's fighting himself. This is focused more on his loyalty to himself and to his audience. Now, with Eighth Grade, Bo has expressed both sides of the spectrum, while showing how it can affect people who have grown up with social media, and are going through a strange stage in their lives at the same time. In the interview, Bo explained how Eighth Grade was more straightforward and showed how all of this chaos makes kids feel, and how kids (and people in general, really) can deal with it, and derive some sort of happiness while they're at it, even if there's sadness and negatives along the way. It was kind of like appreciating that everybody can come together to live through this chaos of the entire world changing, and there can be so many things you can be proud of doing, and not regret. This song helped pave the path of this movie coming out, kind of as a sign for hope that Bo wants to give his audience, just in case we were stuck in the satire and hate, just as he might've been once.

Michael Tate : its crazy how this is literally a perfect copy of a kanye show lol. he did such a good job not only delivering original content but also perfectly parodying/imitating that thing kanye does at all his shows lol

Haru : Can I just mention that part where he talks about his real problems (that really #deep part)? I think more people should pay attention to that. People ask "Where is Bo", but no one asks "How is Bo" :c

Daniel Kaiselgruber : "Thank you, I hope you're happy" *drops mic* I CANT STOP CRYING RIGHT NOW BRO

Sena is bird god : Woah I just had a wave of realization So with all the stuff he says about how he can't fit things in things like his hand in a Pringles can or ingredients in a burrito is relating to how you can't fit all of your emotions into your bottle without struggling He can't handle the stress of making people laugh and dealing with his own problems

baileysmithful : It is extremely difficult to make this kind of comedy work, especially if it's musical comedy, but Burnham absolutely kills it. Ironically it's much harder to effectively make a piece that's hysterically funny and deeply touching *by turns* than it is to do both those things simultaneously, because the switch between them can be jarring and highlight the fact that one of them is (usually) stronger than the other. That's really not the case here, probably because it's such a solid pop composition. Masterful stuff.

FOAD RIGHTNOW : Bo Burnham IS the new standard by which entertainers, both young and old, new or experienced, should be judged! He WILL be one of THE most famous people in history by the time he's done with this wild ride we call life! He's well on his way of doing just that!

Michael Todd : "But I'll blow ny dad before I eat a burrito with a fork."

Description Untitled : Bo had the power to make you laugh and cry in the same 3 minutes.

Megan Vinson : How does guy simultaneously make me laugh and cry

Collie : The cinematography in this is absolutely amazing.

WolfCat-Hybrid : I get teased about my small hands. On the plus side I can totally fit my hands all the way to the bottom of the pringles can. Wheres my crew of people who can fit their hands in pringles cans?

Naumen : if you feel me put your hands up - C'mon, If you feel me put your hands *uuUUUUUuup* Damn dude. I put my hands up. I was happy. 3 minutes later I cried.

The Dub Rebellion : bo is a fucking legend. LOVE THIS

Noah Hostetler : I'm not claiming to understand how he feels, especially at the end, but you can truly see his expression at the end before he drops the mic, and walks away. Just makes me wonder how he's doing after the show ends... Love (the idea of) you Bo, you're a gift to this world, that we never deserved.

Pancake King Axel : I really love how genuine you are when you say "i hope you're happy" it sells the entire show

Brice Latimer : The second part of the song sounded like we was being really honest

Level 10 Edgelord : The real hero is the special effects guy.

Marissa Turner : Oh Bo Isn't Ironic that a comedian can makes you feel sad? Left and Right are agree that you are the best I've ever seen. I know, we had a hell of a ride but I know is hurting you, and we understand you can't handle this right now, and I know, We'll gonna miss you a lot but I don't want to watch you in the channel 5 news like another sad artist story or hear that you just decided kill yourself because no one never  understood the real you, No. I don't want that ,I want that you live happy. In fact I hope you're happy now.  Because that is what Love is, no just stupid words words words or repeated stuff, for me love is what you did all the time . You made us happy, no. You made us laugh, you did all your best from the deep of your heart, even if you were feeling bad doing it. You never lied to us, even if you don't think that. You did what your heart wanted, you stayed true to yourself even when the people thought that they knew you and wanted to change you. Men and Women, old and young people. We'll never forget you Bo because you are an incomparable artist. What's funny now, people? Art is dead but remember you deserve more. So don't lower your expectations, we deserve real artists, real performers as him. Lesson Learned my friend.   If you want to be happy, stop asking, stop looking for it, do what your heart wants You do your own happiness...

Soy Bean : “I’ll blow my dad before I eat a burrito with a fork”

Justin Strait : He should get paid for each time he says pringle can lmfao.

Jørgen Meian : "they don’t even know the half of this right now" makes me think of Aviccii’s death... rip

Will Jarvis : What song does this sound like?? Runaway yes, but what else?!?!

Nathan B : But I'll blow my dad before I eat a burrito with a fork

FOAD RIGHTNOW : Only Bo could take Aututune and create something truly artistic with it!

Chris Lee : The most earned mic drop i have ever seen

Patrick Hallett : I feel like at around 5:45, he started to forget that he was performing and just began to pour out his emotions, all his pain and suffering, and frankly that just makes the last part of this song 7x more powerful, because now you can see just how hard it is for him to even breathe without breaking down due to his anxiety. I just want nothing more than to leap through the screen and give this poor man a big hug and tell him everything’s gonna be okay and to stay strong

Bernard O'Hanlon : That part where he's describing the burrito ordering process reminds me of the piece in his previous show - ie. what. - where he played his right and left brain. It's as if he is his left brain - ie. the logical guy ordering a burrito - and his right brain is the one making it, that is, the part of him that was supposed to be in touch with his emotions and realise how much he could handle. So when he's telling the burrito maker that he should have warned him he's telling his right brain that it should have done better to realise how much he could handle emotionally. Just something I noticed. Might not be true. But the way he actually physically turns from left to right at that part is pretty compelling.
