How Did Bo Burnham make his money & wealth?
Bo was born Robert Pickering Burnham in Hamilton Massachusetts on August 21, 1990. His mother worked as a nurse at his school, while his father Scott was in construction. Bo is the youngest out of his three siblings. Prior to graduating from St. John’s Preparatory School, he had already got a record deal from Comedy Central Records and recorded his initial EP called Bo Fo Sho. He joined YouTube in 2006 and used it to share videos of his musical comedy performances, thinking only his family would see it. Instead, it was shared on a popular comedy website at the time, and it went viral.
He continued to post to the video sharing forum, playing either the keyboard or guitar and singing the songs that he wrote. He recorded the videos in his bedroom and his parents home, while he saying about touchy topics such as homosexuality, white supremacy, and Helen Keller. His fan base was growing, but not everyone was a fan of his edginess. Even while he was getting bigger, negotiating a four-album record deal and being represented by an agent, Douglas Edley, his performances were also being protested by the more socially conscious.
