Surprise, Bo Burnham just released another hour of Inside material. As expected, it is excellent. The comedian marked the one-year anniversary of his surprise 2021 Netflix special on May 30 by releasing a whole lot of outtakes and additional material that didn’t make it into the final cut. Burnham took to Instagram and Twitter revealing he had bonus Inside material heading to YouTube about an hour before the video dropped. And you can watch it right on YouTube.
The video, which is a little over an hour long, is full of hilarious bits and ridiculously catchy musical tracks full of spot-on commentary on society and life during the pandemic. There’s “Five Years,” during which he has an extended aside on people’s fear of spiders. (Followed up by a short song specifically dedicated to a spider in his house.) Plus, he couldn’t help but poke fun at Marvel blockbusters and also included a hilarious ballad about a chicken crossing the road. He also reflected on his comedy start, which famously started with a series of YouTube videos, and the early material he feels embarrassed by now.
As with the special, Burnham filmed The Inside Outtakes material during the first year of the pandemic—between March 2020 and May 2021. The comedian spent the last two months editing together the axed material for release. The outtakes are an excellent bit of supplementary material to the incredibly introspective special. Inside was Burnham’s first stand-up comedy special in five years after 2016’s Make Happy. And the special was universally acclaimed. It racked up six Emmy nominations, winning three, and two Grammy nominations, winning one for “All Eyes on Me.”
A little more than a week after the special dropped, Burnham released the Inside album. The album featured all the songs in the special. And luckily he’s doing the same with the added material. The Promising Young Woman actor is releasing Inside (Deluxe) featuring all the axed songs—including two more Jeff Bezos bops. The deluxe album drops on June 3. Luckily it’s already available for pre-save on Spotify and Apple Music.
