Comedian Bo Burnham will perform at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 26, at the John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center at Western Carolina University.

Burnham rose to fame in 2006, while still in high school, after posting YouTube videos of himself in his bedroom performing autobiographical songs such as “My Whole Family Thinks I’m Gay.” The videos have since had millions of views worldwide. He soon had secured a four-record deal with Comedy Central Records, releasing “Bo Burnham” in 2009, and four days after his 18th birthday became the youngest person to record a “Comedy Central Presents” special. He subsequently debuted a second Comedy Central special, “Words, Words, Words,” and with it released a companion CD/DVD.
