The special was first released in May. Burnham wrote, filmed, edited, and directed the 1hr and 27min show completely on his own. It is a widly unique comedy special that features satrical songs as well as scenes of Bo editing and adjusting camera angles. It shows Burnham’s decline in mental health during quarantine. Many of the songs tackle senstive subjects like suicide, anxiety, opression, and his own problametic past. Inside was created during lockdown and is the product of the comedian locking himself inside a single room over the course of 2020.
The reviews from critics and viewers have been phenomal. Both the audience and critics have rated the special at a 94% on Rotten Tomatoes. The critic consensus stating: “A claustrophobic masterclass in comedy and introspection, Inside is a beautifully bleak, hilariously hopeful special from Bo Burnham.” While the audience consesus says: “A brilliant blend of sharp humor and emotional truth, Bo Burnham: Inside captures its moment with catchy songs and striking insights.” Though it’s been two months since the release the special is still on everyone’s mind. With that being said, it only makes sense that Netflix would provide audiences with a chance to see Bo Burnham’s Inside from outside of their homes.
