Live Comedy: Joel McHale & Bo Burnham
WHERE Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom, Hampton Beach, NH
WHEN July 27, 2008
STORY & PHOTOS
I love "The Soup" and I love Joel McHale. Last night he was in my neck of the woods, doing standup at the HBCB in New Hampshire, a little over an hour from where I live in Maine. My friend Alex and I drove down for the show and, on the way, met my pal Adam for dinner (he lives in New Hampshire and goes to UNH).
Joel's opener was a young guy named Bo Burnham, who I am pretty sure either just graduated or is still in high school in Massachusetts. He was really funny! A big part of his act was music, and he did funny songs. Four for you, Bo Burnham! I hope he hits it big.
Then Joel came on and he was really funny, as expected. Talked some shit about E! and the Kardashians (of course) and was generally sexy while being very funny. (A+, Joel McHale.)
Afterward, he hung around to take photos:
Side note: I did not realize Joel was so tall. Now all of those tiny-Ryan-Seacrest jabs make waaay more sense.
I also snapped a photo with Bo Burnham, who was very nice:
Alex was excited because it was the first show she went to as a 21-year-old where she got an "of-age" bracelet. After the show some teenage dudes asked us to buy beer for them but we just laughed and ran away. Are we mean? I don't know.
I do know we hit the photobooth with candy cigarettes.
