First Special After Five Years

After the comedian's last special- Make Happy, was released in 2016, he decided to take time off from a stand-up comedy. During an interview in 2018, he mentioned that he took a break as he struggled with anxiety and had panic attacks on stage sometimes. Burnham also mentions that he directed the 2018 movie- Eighth Grade to overcome his anxiety. 

He stated-

"It's an incredibly surreal place to have one, within the confines of something you made in front of 3,000 people, that have no idea, that paid to come see you...It's funny in hindsight..."

Burnham also adds- 

“I realized that the sort of depth of my experience was not unique to me...That’s why I wanted to make a movie about someone that’s performing and seeking an audience and wanting all those things but isn’t a 27-year-old male comedian.”

Hence, after five years, he is back again with his new Netflix special- Inside, which was written, directed, filmed, and performed by himself during the lockdown. Bo shared a small snippet of his new special, and the caption read- 

"hi. i made a new special. it was filmed by me, alone, without a crew or an audience, over the course of the past year. it is almost finished. i hope you like it."

Despite being together for a long time, the couple has kept their relationship very low-key. However, they have a significant age difference of twelve years. Bo is 30, while Lorene is 43, but the age difference does not bother the two.   

Besides, there is no news regarding the two getting married or engaged. Guess we'll have to wait and find out!
