Comments from Youtube

Ratsy Valia : Nobody in that crowd was ready for the second part of this song.

Tyler Stevens : "Come and watch the skinny kid with the steadily declining mental health, and laugh as he attempts to give you what he cannot give himself." Then ends it with a deep, defeated, "Thank you. I hope you're happy." Chills.

Jason Cooke : If it's comedy, then why am i crying?

XxilikesoupxX : "I'll blow my dad before I eat a burrito with a fork" Chills.

Sharkyzane231 : I'm glad bo swears because otherwise English teachers would be all over this

Jenna Darcy : so apparently art isn’t dead

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

Mark Wainscott : "And laugh as he attempts to give you what he cannot give himself" I've never heard any possible combination of the English letters that struck more true than those... I'm so happy that you got out of the commercial comedy thing. You have no idea how much what you made has meant to me, but I'm happier that you're doing what you need to. I love the idea of you Bo, thank you for getting me through so much shit... I know you won't read this but you prevented a suicide

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.

super duper : when after the honest and emotional part he says that he’ll just do his job and goes back to the jokes my heart broke

Shampoo Fully : "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. " ... "I hope you're happy."

Logan Hollister : God damn it. Every few months I fall into this cycle. I see a Bo Burnham video in my recommended or I think about him or something, then I binge all his videos and sing along and everything but then near the end of it, I get to this video, or I get to Are You Happy, and I bawl my eyes out and have to stop watching his stuff bc I miss him as if he were an actual friend of mine. Then a few months go by and I'm fine, but then I see another video....

Jim Szalewski : "Come and watch the skinny kid with the steadily declining mental health, as he attempts to give what he can not give himself" Sounds like Bo potentially struggles with depression. Hope he's okay.

egg boi : When one of an artist's saddest songs is autotuned and 65% about Pringles and Chipotle.

ChaoticChiyo : And in that moment, singing about a burrito, he looked like an angel

bwhipp604 : damn that burrito metaphor was wild.

Andrew Tonon : I got the sense of "Thank you, goodnight, I hope you're happy [...because I'm not]"

The Stalking Chicken : 1:14 why is an auto-tuned "oooooooooo" so pretty?

Kirby : This will hold up as one of the biggest tone reversals anyone has ever pulled off on an unsuspecting audience

Matthew Butler : They should have told Bo he can ask for the burrito double wrapped

Rıdvan Erata : my biggest problem is myself. A part of myself loves me.A part of myself hate me.And ı dont like both of Them! SORRY ABOUT MY ENGLISH

Mason Warren : You can’t play with my emotions like that bo

Matthew King : I saw him perform this in a small theater in Regina, Saskatchewan and it was equally as impressive and grand in scale as his New York performance on Netflix. It was so impressive to see such production behind his work, and that Bo would make it consistent no matter the location.

clint mcbride : I'm sad that he doesn't do comedy anymore but after seeing his movie Eighth Grade I am ok with it. Because he managed to find another way to make us feel something, another way to make a statement and say something to help other feel connected with someone else. He is an inspiration and deserves so much more praise that he gets.

Eℓιzαвεтн Ocтαvιυs • Bιѕнopι : ...There's a certain part of the video that makes me think hes a perfect Peter Parker

lyricyst2000 : Bo has the self awareness at his age to recognize fame for the double edged sword it is...yall better not hate him when he retires young.

ajbolt : 6:31 that is one of the most beautiful shots I've ever seen from a live production.

Justin Berkeland : I find it incredibly ironic and eye opening that the audience is unresponsive when he gets introspective yet is so ready to grant a positive response when he "does his job" and is funny and vulnerable. A sign of true awareness.

Jane Smith : Jesus Christ. The most gut punching end to a comedy show I've ever seen. I hope he is happy. Seriously, dude, be well.

Parry Home : Thank you Kanye, very cool

Melted Snowflakes : "And laugh as he attempts to give you what he cannot give himself." His entire reason for entering comedy, wanting to become famous, his journey throughout the process, and ultimately his reason for leaving it all behind in the end summarized in one perfect statement. Deep.

cjbafawayne : find happiness Bo we'll manage without you for a while

embrezar : This is fucking incredible. I had no idea Bo put on such a fantastic show. I have come back to this video time and time again, because it just never gets old.

James Stephenson : I keep watching this and now it makes me cry.

WaaDoku 【和ァ独】 : Good comedy makes you laugh. Brilliant comedy makes you cry.

Uberus : Dude man Bo! I subscribed to you when I was a kid and you were a kid and you had like 2 songs on your channel. Now I am married, have a daughter and a steady job. Never had the chance to watch you live. I've seen this before but now I had the urge to write something down. I hope this act was just that, an act. You are a great artist and I which u all the best! Congratulations on your movie also!

Braulio R. : It's weird to think that within every hilarious comedian there's a very sad artist.

Keopi : 4:20 looks like a legit movie scene. Can Bo please have his own film? Like something autobiographical?

Hannah Pepin : I can sit here and pretend my biggest problems are pringle cans. And burritos. But the truth is my biggest problems you, I want to please you. But I want to stay true to myself. I want to give you the night out that you deserve but I want to 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. Chills.

Giraffe with tattoos : The breakdown at 4:17 is quite possibly the most musically perfect moment I've ever heard. The entire song is beautiful. And wierd. But mostly beautiful.

Jay Kim : I think the beginning contextualization about the Kanye Rant is supposed to represent excessive materialism. Kanye literally rants due to the failure of his excessively expensive t-shirts to sell well, which logically should not be something to rant about. Why can Kanye rant about whatever he wants, why can he price his shirts at a level higher than many people's daily wage? Right after, Burnham jokes that his very real mental problems matter less than Kanye's "problem" illustrating how oftentimes society just doesn't give a shit if one isn't rich and famous. I can't fit my hand inside my Pringles can embodies society's focus on meaningless things. We twitter away our time caring about such idiotic things as trying to fit our hands down a Pringles can, something that does not affect us greatly and can easily be fixed by either not eating Pringles or eating knock-off Pringles. Burnham returns to the Pringles can again after he says he has overdone the concept to further illustrate how much time is wasted on such trivialities. He starts this next portion of his Pringles rant on how he wants a daughter just so he can have someone whose hands will fit down a Pringles can. Another joke, but he still says that he wants to make such an important decisions over such a trivial topic, perhaps demonstrating how often people make important decisions over their most meaningless needs. His specific usage of "daughter" instead of simply "child" might be a hidden poke at society's irrational fear of sexual dimorphism. There are clearly differences between males and females, the most obvious being the ability to have a child but also average hand size. Yet a lot of people would try their best to use both pronouns interchangeably even in this situation because they care a lot about a generally meaningless difference(hand size does not usually matter) or fear that other people will care about this difference. Finally, he remarks that the difficulty with the Pringles can is priority number uno for him, clearly indicating his belief that society is prioritizing meaningless things over important things like the real problems he talks about later. Gym catch-22 is about stuck people. Burnham wants to get better, but he's afraid because getting better involves having to see his own inability in excruciating detail, and having to allow others to see that same apparent inability. Many people in our society become stuck because they would rather ignore and hide their inabilities than improve themselves. They choose to do nothing, because not doing is safer than doing but their fears inhibit them from ever growing out of their catch-22 state. By not going to the gym, by not working out, they are forever forced into hiding their weak biceps and calves. There are other reasons for trying to get better, but Burnham does not provide much material to analyze. The burrito portion of Burnham's act has underlying themes of how society cares so much about meaningless things. But more importantly, it reveals his frustration in balancing what he wants in his comedy and what will make his audience happy. His audience doesn't want a messy burrito. They want a contained package that they can easily intake and forget about afterwards. Something that will fit within the confines of the tortilla, within the space of the show, and leave them afterwards. But the show is overpacked with references to mental illness and social issues and things that don't just fit within the context of the show but outside and will remain with the audience past the time of the show. Burnham wouldn't have gotten even half the things in his burrito if he'd known it wouldn't fit. He would have picked specific ingredients out in order to make his burrito nice and orderly. His audience doesn't even know the half of it(his frustrations), and would probably have preferred that Burnham leave specific portions of his act out in order to make their experience simply fun and enjoyable. They don't want to hear about the problems plaguing society in a comedy act, and especially not from a "pussy" who puts on a "silly show". The show is titled Make Happy. I think that he wants to make himself happy, and while he tries to do that partially through making other people happy through his comedy, he also wants to stay true to his roots as a person. He might be a comedy expert, but his audiences are the ones that chose to watch his show and it is not his fault for not giving them what they expected. In the end, he's just trying his best to balance his art and be happy. If he can't handle the stress of it all then he can always revert to saying whatever will make the audience laugh because he doesn't know how else to be happy other than giving everything of himself to please others and hoping he succeeds.

Stephen Ingle : One of the funniest, saddest, uplifting, introspective, aesthetically pleasing, artistic performances ever. ...Or, the only.

God Tier Lee : "I'll blow my dad before I eat a burrito with a fork" I always thought he said cap not dad...

Jan Uy : This guy's an actual genius. It's called the Kanye Rant because while it has similar instrumentals that Kanye has in his music, many of Kanye's songs (especially his older ones) on the surface have relatively straightforward meanings like getting girls or getting rich and famous but if you dig deeper in them you realize Kanye is making a commentary on society, whether it be about suicide or slavery through consumerism or other serious topics. This song by Bo is initially about a pringle's can but eventually morphs into a commentary about his own well-being. I have major respect for this man for actually producing original art in this day and age.

Stan ezen : Pringles can=society Chipotle burrito=self flaws and qualities Am I reading to much into it?

grunermrk : I'll miss his comedy shows but It's probably best for him.

Sammy Hassini : The camera work man,respect

toadofsteel : Every emotion of the Millennial Condition, distilled into 7 minutes. It starts with the superficiality of First World Problems like Pringle cans and Burritos, before it delves into the extreme personal insecurity underlying it all, after so many parents tried to push the myth that we were all "special", heaping activities on us as children even if we were incompatible (can't fit the hand in the can) or suffered from burnout (too much shit that doesn't fit in the burrito). And we naturally didn't live up to those overinflated expectations because we're no better or worse than any other generation, but the damage has been done. We try to push ourselves becuase it's all we know, but we can't handle this right. Ultimately, as adults, we just have to shut up and do our jobs, so here we go.

Kelsey Milburn : i swear it was the lighting that made me cry
