My PolicyMic story for this week is about the brilliance of Bo Burnham. It’s a mix of how creative choices kept his career fresh and why you must watch what. immediately.

Thanks to the internet, the road to success in Hollywood has changed dramatically. Before one would need school or training, an agent and a lot of luck. Now anyone with a viral blog, Twitter account or YouTube channel can strike it big in pop culture. No one better represents this phenomenon than musical comedian Bo Burnham, who shot to stardom on YouTube at 16, and today at 23, has managed to build a massive comedy career.

Inside the Nineties’ Great Stand-up Sitcom Boom and Bust | Vulture
The sad thing, with all this taping and stuff, no one’s going to do stand-up. And every big stand-up I talk to says: “How do I work out new material? Where can you go, if I have a half an idea and then it’s on the Internet next week?” Just look at some of my material. You can’t imagine how rough it was and how unfunny and how sexist or racist it might have seemed. “N*ggas vs. Black People” probably took me six months to get that thing right. You know how racist that thing was a week in?
