Laughter, blood, and morally questionable satirical song
Twenty-one year old comedian, Bo Burnham instantly enticed a sold-out room of college students by introducing nudity almost immediately during the inception of his hour-long pretentious comedy skit. Burnham abruptly stripped away his neon-red pants, suggesting he had nothing underneath, but instead he revealed yet another pair of neon-red pants.
Burnham’s politically incorrect and sometimes morally questionable performance, which was preceded by outstandingly talented comedians, Moshe Kasher and Gloria Bigelow, both of whom delivered raunchy, crowd pleasing performances, received a standing ovation by the roaring, sold-out crowd, who never seemed to stop laughing. Burnham opened his act by joking about never before hearing of WCU’s mascot, the Catamount. “What the f#*k is that [catamount], I think it is a measurement of crazy old ladies, she lives with seven cats, so she has a much higher catamount,” he joked.
