Inside is a discomforting and very funny field trip into the head of the comedian Bo Burnham over the course of the pandemic. It’s a musical comedy special (emphasis on musical) and the songs actually had us LOLing. The serious moments are very, very serious — even grave — and the wild tonal swings from hilarity to despair to absurdity to hope really reflect the emotional roller coaster that was 2020. Highlights: “Face Time with My Mom (Tonight),” “Welcome to the Internet,” and the sketch where he’s a Twitch user playing the video game that is his life and he makes his player cry a lot.
Thanks to slfhlp for providing us some SICK BEATS for our intro and outro.
