Bo Burnham films a new special

Coming to Netflix this year

Bo Burnham is to release his first comedy special in five years.

Inside will be streamed on Netflix later this year, although no precise release date has yet been confirmed.

The comic tweeted that ‘it was filmed by me, alone, without a crew or an audience, over the course of the past year,’ adding:  ’It is almost finished. I hope you like it.’
