REVIEW

Comedic prodigy Bo Burnham?s 2016 comedy special felt decidedly more grown up than what we were used to from him. In?Make Happy,?Burnham takes an unflinching look at the entertainment industry, doling out jabs to rap artists, country bros,?Lip Sync Battle, and even his own work. His rapid-fire one-liners and ability to cut to the bone on more serious issues only beefs up this special, which manages to take on a darker tone while still making us laugh.
