2020 was, well, interesting. But for most of us, our quarantined realities called for being bored in the house (cue Curtis Roach) and trips to the fridge every couple of minutes (just us?). As for Bo Burnham? He filmed himself inside his home... and managed to make a comedy special out of it. That's right. Here's what you need to know about the funny guy's latest adventure.
"Hi. I made a new special," the comedian announced on Wednesday, April 28. "It was filmed by me, alone, without a crew or an audience, over the course of the past year," Burnham proudly revealed. Consider us intrigued...

Titled, Inside, the musical comedy will show us the Hollywood comedian like we’ve never seen him before. In fact, one look at his piano-playing ways in that 46-second trailer, and suddenly we can’t wait to catch the full concert in action.
Well, when will we get to tag along? "It is almost finished. I hope you like it," Burnham teased. Unfortunately, his interpretation of "almost" might be a tad different than ours: We have yet to receive a release date on his latest endeavors, set to air exclusively on Netflix. Nonetheless, we've got a feeling it'll be well worth the wait.
In the meantime, we guess Promising Young Woman will have to tide us over. In case you forgot, the 2020 Academy Award-winning film saw Burnham land a leading role, starring as a charming pediatric surgeon. Safe to say, his upcoming adventure will have him looking slightly different.
From his time in Parks and Recreation to his stint in The Big Sick, to now, his quarantine concerts, is there anything Bo Burnham can't do? In fact, leave it to him to make being stuck at home alone into a laugh fest.
We can't wait to join in on the fun ourselves. Until then, stay tuned...
