28 Best Bo Burnham Jokes & Funny Quotes From His Best Comedy Shows

Goodbye sadness, hello jokes.

Bo Burnham is a man of many talents — he’s a comedian, musician, actor, director, and poet. He got his start on YouTube in 2006. However, he was posting funny songs on YouTube before it became a platform that really created celebrities and careers. He was simply posting silly songs he recorded in his high school bedroom to share with his friends and family.

Bo Burnham’s YouTube videos became a hit and now they have over 200 million views.

In 2008, he signed a four-year record deal with Comedy Central Records. He also released his EP, Bo fo Sho, that year. In 2009, he recorded a half-hour Comedy Central special and became the youngest comedian, at the age of 18, to release a special on the network. His full-length album titled Bo Burnham also came out that same year.

Burnham was born and raised in Massachusetts where he graduated from an all-boys catholic school called St. John’s Preparatory School. He was involved in the theatre program and worked diligently to be on the honor roll throughout his high school years. When he graduated in 2008, he got into New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts to study experimental theatre. However, he decided to not attend and instead focus on his comedy pursuits.

In 2010, Bo Burnham released his second album called Words Words Words and recorded his first live special, of the same name, and it aired on Comedy Central. That year he was nominated for “Best Comedy Show” at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards for his Words Words Words performance.

That year he also wrote, produced, and starred in an MTV reality show satire called Zach Stone Is Gonna Be Famous. Each episode focused on Zach rebranding himself in hopes to become famous and it was an intelligent subversion of the reality television genre. However, placing the show on a network among the reality shows he is poking fun of caused some viewers to not understand that it was satirical, thus it was not picked up for a second season.

Bo Burnham’s third comedy special and album, What., came out in 2013 on Netflix, as well as his YouTube channel. That same year he also released his first poetry book, Egghead: Or, You Can’t Survive on Ideas Alone.

His third stand-up special, Make Happy, was released on Netflix in 2016.

20 Best Reese Witherspoon Quotes About Ambition, Friendship & Powerful, Strong Women

Hollywood’s southern sweetheart is turning it up a notch.

Reese Witherspoon is an actress, producer, entrepreneur, mother, and activist who went from leading lady to inspiring women. Everyone is obsessing over her recent hit show Big Little Lies, and it’s time for the world to obsess over Reese too!

Reese Witherspoon is currently the third highest paid actress in the world, but her journey to getting there was a long one.

When Witherspoon was 14, she booked her first lead role in a feature film on accident. She went to an open casting call to play a small role in The Man in the Moon, but was cast as the lead instead.

But her real breakthrough came in 1999 when she was in Cruel Intentions opposite Ryan Phillippe, who she was dating at the time and married three months after the movie came out. While doing press for the film, Witherspoon was also pregnant with their daughter, Ava (who looks exactly like her). Surprisingly though, Witherspoon almost didn’t accept the role in the Cruel Intentions because her character didn’t have enough depth —​ so she worked with the director to rewrite her lines to create a multifaceted character who she would want to play.

Soon after, Reese Witherspoon played the role of Tracy Flick, an ambitious high school student running for school president, in the film Election. Although her performance was widely praised and helped her earn her first Golden Globe nomination, Witherspoon claimed that it was difficult for her to book roles after. Since Tracy Flick is such an extreme character and she played her so well, people believed that Witherspoon must be similar to Flick and were hesitant to work with her.

Reese Witherspoon reached a turning point in her career when she landed the role of Elle Woods, a sorority girl who tries to win her ex-boyfriend back by becoming a law student and following him to Harvard Law School in the hit movie, Legally Blonde. This performance led to her receiving her second Golden Globe Best Actress nomination and her first MTV Movie Award for Best Comedic Performance.

Then, in 2005, Reese Witherspoon portrayed June Carter Cash, Johnny Cash’s second wife, in Walk the Line and won her first Academy Award for Best Actress. About a year later, she went through a divorce from Ryan Phillippe, and in turn took a break from working …

35 Best Marina Song Lyrics & Heartbreaking Quotes About Weakness In Love

Welcome to the life of Marina Diamandis – Formerly Marina and the Diamonds.

Are you a heartbreaker, prima donna girl, or Electra Heart? Maybe you’re all three and relate to every Marina Era, like me. Marina Diamandis, formerly known as Marina and the Diamonds, is a Welsh pop singer-songwriter that is one of the best vocalists and lyricists of our time.

Most people assume ‘the Diamonds’ in ‘Marina and the Diamonds’ refers to her being a band, however ‘the Diamonds’ mean her fans.

Marina began writing songs when she was 18 years old, but was too scared to sing them publicly. She became obsessed with becoming a singer, although she did not have a lot of musical experience. So, she taught herself how to play the piano and how to compose and produce music. Four years later, in 2007, she independently released her first EP “Mermaid vs. Sailor” on Myspace, which she created using the program GarageBand.

A year later, Neon Gold Records discovered her and booked her to open for Gotye.

In 2009, Marina released her first single “Obsessions” and first extended EP The Crown Jewels with Neon Gold Records. She then began performing at festivals, like the Glastonbury festival, the Reading and Leeds festival, and the iTunes Festival. Diamandis then released an EP consisting of the live songs she performed at the iTunes Festival. In December of 2009, Marina got second place on the Sound of 2010 poll by BBC and, at the 2010 BRIT awards, she was nominated for the Critics’ Choice Award.

Marina released her first studio album, The Family Jewels, on February 15, 2010 and was certified gold by the British Phonographic Industry. In March of that year, she released her album in the U.S. In October, she received an award at the MTV Europe Music Awards for Best UK & Ireland Act. She then went on tour to promote her album and soon after, in 2011, Marina opened for Katy Perry on tour.

After Marina went through a breakup that left her sad and broken hearted, she released her concept album, Electra Heart in 2012. The album revolves around a character going through a break-up, Electra Heart, and four archetypes (Beauty Queen, Idle Teen, House Wife, Homewrecker).

Marina wanted to get her anger out by creating a cold and cynical character that ends up becoming a heartbreaker, but is clearly broken inside. Having …

20 Powerful Judy Garland Quotes That Describe What Depression Feels Like

Someday I’ll wake up when the clouds are far behind me…

Judy Garland is a household name. We’ve met her in St. Louis, attended her Easter Parade and followed her over the rainbow. She ushered our lives into Technicolor with her angelic voice and all-knowing worldly naivety. She was the face of our childhoods.

But there is a dark history that we don’t acknowledge about Garland — she was deeply and wildly depressed. She attempted suicide multiple times, and spent much of her life in a dark place in her mental health, imagining a world she perceived better by her absence.

Mental health wasn’t talked about during her time — it was taboo and distasteful to expose your pain in public. Sadly, Judy Garland wasn’t given the help she desperately needed, as it was looked down upon and mocked.

Garland has often said that she lived for the crowd. She knew she was adored by her fans, and would do anything for them. But she also knew the difference between adoration and love, and more than anything she craved to feel loved.

In recent years, some of Garland’s third husband, Sid Luft’s, written accounts of her depression were found after his passing. A lot of them told detailed accounts of her suicide attempts.

“What demons inhabited her soul just when life seemed so rich and productive? It was a gigantic puzzlement that she would poison herself … and that the toxic reaction to whatever she swallowed would create an impulse for self-mutilation,” He wrote in his book, Judy & I: My Life with Judy Garland.

It is unbearably sad to think that a woman who brought us so much joy spent her life in so much pain. We must remember we are lucky to live in a day and age full of people who are working hard to normalize the discussion of depression and other mental illnesses. We must continue to work hard to pay attention to our loved ones, and make sure that they get the help they need.

We can only hope that Judy Garland finally found peace as she made her way over the rainbow.

Here are some of the most powerful Judy Garland quotes about depression, and what it feels like to be depressed and sad:

1. We all need to believe in the other side of the rainbow.

“I’ve always taken ‘The Wizard of …

65 Progressive Inspirational Quotes From Famous Celebrities

The best influential quotes from Hollywood’s hottest stars.

We all know these famous celebrities from Hollywood. We have their posters on our walls and their voices in our heads. We have been hearing their names and watching their television shows and movies for years. We tell ourselves that there was nothing like old Hollywood and imagine ourselves walking the red carpet in those fabulous dresses, and riding in those fancy cars, using those really long cigarette holders.

In reality, we know that being a celebrity isn’t all glamour. As hard as we fight for equal pay today, women in Hollywood back then had to fight to get even a fraction of what they deserved. In a time where many men believed women to be genetically inferior, these trailblazers took the world by storm, showing us that women can succeed in a male dominated business.

Alex Guy Balch was the first female film producer, all the way back in 1911. The Moving Picture News printed that she was, “a fine example of what a woman can do if given a square chance in life.” She ended up producing, directing, or supervising over 1000 films in her career (short films mostly, but some full length) — sometimes all three at once.

Lucille Ball helped invent syndication by having I Love Lucy filmed on quality tape instead of broadcast live. After she bought out her ex-husband, Desi Arnaz from their production company, Desilu Productions, she was also the first woman to run a major television studio. The company went on to produce hits like Mission: Impossible and Star Trek.

While Mary Tyler Moore wasn’t the first woman on TV to wear pants, she was the first to normalize the concept of women dressing casually. When asked by TV Guide about her character on The Dick van Dyke Show she said, “I had Laura wear pants, because I said, ‘Women don’t wear full-skirted dresses to vacuum in. Women kind of breathed a sigh of relief, too, and said, ‘Hey, that’s right. That’s what we wear.'”

Donna Reed served as an uncredited producer and director of her show, The Donna Reed Show way back in the 1950’s. This dubbed her the first female television executive in history!

Sometimes we forget that these larger than life figures were real everyday women. They were sisters, and friends, trying to put their stamp on the world. When we …

30 Kris Jenner Quotes About How To Be Successful, A Mom & A Strong Woman (All At Once)

Some quotes from the momager herself.

When you think is Kris Jenner what word automatically comes to mind? For me it is “momager”.

Actually trademarking the term in 2017, Kris Jenner is the original momager — she is the manager to all six of her (insanely famous) children, Kourtney Kardashian, Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, Rob Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, and Kylie Jenner.

A little history on the head of the Kardashian-Jenner clan: before she was married to Robert Kardashian (the attorney on the OJ Simpson trial), Kris, born Kristen Mary Houghton, was a flight attendant for American Airlines. After her divorce from Kardashian, who she had three children with, she became a manager for Olympian Bruce Jenner (now known as Caitlyn Jenner). She married Bruce Jenner in 1991, and they stayed married through the birth of their 2 children together until 2015, when they divorced.

“Keeping Up With the Kardashians” started in 2007, and is produced by Ryan Seacrest. Seacrest wanted to start a reality show about a crazy family, because he became obsessed MTV show, “The Osbournes,” which was on from 2002 to 2005. He started having people search for the family that would be perfect for a reality show, and a cameraman was sent to the Kardashians — immediately he knew this was the family.

Now, the Kardashians and Jenners are the trend-setters of the century — so many people idolize and try to look similar to Kardashian women (I am guilty of this). Remember in 2015 when Kylie got big lips so a viral trend happened called the “Kylie lip challenge”? Or when all of the Kardashian-Jenners sponsored FitTea and waist trainers — so suddenly everyone started waist training too? The Kardashians are truly the most talked about modern family, and everyone knows who they are.

If we are being honest, Kris Jenner is the mastermind of her famous family. She taught her children a strong work ethic, and to this day Kris watches out for all of them.

This classic momager is such a confident, and successful person, so who better to take advice from than the queen herself? Look to our collection of the best Kris Jenner quotes that prove she knows everything about being successful and raising a loving family.

1. You should not take pictures of yourself when your sister is going to jail.

28 Best Paris Hilton Quotes That Will Make You Laugh And Say, ‘That’s Hot’

She’s funnier than you might think.

How can you not love Paris Hilton? She does it all. Paris is a businesswoman, socialite, model, singer, actress, fashion designer, DJ, and media personality.

Paris Hilton’s almost always been famous (being great-granddaughter of Conrad Hilton — founder of Hilton Hotels), but a time that really shot her into the limelight — whether or not she wanted the attention — was in 2003, when a private recording of her then-boyfriend Rick Salomon leaded.

The sex tape was later branded 1 Night in Paris, but instead of shying away from the spotlight, she used that newfound fame to help launch her reality television career with friend Nicole Richie by bringing “The Simple Life” series to FOX.

“The Simple Life” followed two rich girls, Richie and Hilton, leave their money behind to go stay with a family on a farm for five weeks. They had to get jobs, do chores, and try to live a normal life, which was surprisingly hilarious to watch because they didn’t know how to do any of those things.

Paris is also a fashion icon. In the early 2000s, the paparrazi often snapped pictures of her rocking a juicy couture tracksuit paired with a bedazzled Von Dutch hat. Although she owns a lot of clothes, her assistant at the time, Kim Kardashian, would organize her closet for her. However, Paris gave back to Kim by teaching her the ropes on how to become famous — and she is one of the reasons Kim Kardashian is so famous today.

Aside from working closely with Kim, Paris often got photographed partying out with her friends, Britney Spears and Lindsey Lohan.

In 2005, Paris secured a role in the horror film House of Wax. A year later, she released her first album, Paris, and it reached number six on the Billboard 200. In 2008, Paris came back to reality television with her own show called “Paris Hilton’s My New BFF”, which was a competition show where she searched for her new best friend. Soon after, she came out with two more reality shows, “The World According to Paris” and “Hollywood Love Story”, both only airing for one season.

In 2012, Paris Hilton became a DJ at Brazil’s Pop Music Festival. From 2013 to 2017, Paris had a residency at the Amnesia Nightclub in Ibiza, and she was the highest-paid female DJ …

54 Unforgettably Funny Jersey Shore Quotes About Love & Living Your Best Life

Gym, Tan, Laundry and hilarity.

On December 3rd, 2009 the world was forever altered. That was the day that the Jersey Shore first premiered. We were introduced to Paul DelVecchio or “Pauly D”, Jennifer Farley or “JWoww”, Samantha Giancola or “Sammi Sweetheart”, Vinny Guadagnino, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Nicole Polizzi or “Snooki”, Michael Sorrentino or “The Situation”.

We followed these six wonderful weirdos around Seaside Heights, New Jersey as they spent their days working in a souvenir tee-shirt store and their nights drinking and partying excessively. They were almost Shakespearean in the way that they created words and phrases, and implemented them into the modern English language with such ease and grace that I think many of us have forgotten their original origins were rooted near the beaches of New Jersey. You may recognize phrases like “DTF” and “Granade”. They all washed up on those beaches with a margarita and a spray tan and a low tolerance for alcohol.

After three seasons of the Jersey shore, MTV execs decided to take the show on the road and head down to Florida for season four. This was moderately well received, so somehow a plan was put in place to do another season on the road. In Italy. Sensing that most of the cast identified as Italian, the idea was to highlight the juxtaposition of daily life in Italy vs. the daily life of Italian-Americans on the Jersey shore. It was the strangest season of all.

No matter where in the world we found our cast, we all tuned in to laugh, cry, celebrate, fight, drink, and fist pump with our favorite cast of characters. And I think I speak for all of us when I say, I don’t regret a moment I spent watching their show.

Here are some of the best Jersey Shore quotes from the cast of the hit MTV reality TV show that we’ll never forget!

1. It’s always good to break your only rule.

“My only rule: Never fall in love at the Jersey Shore.” Ronnie Ortiz-Magro

2. The lows were low.

“You have to remember that reality shows capture your worst moments.” Nicole Polizzi (Snooki)

3. Everyone loves the situation.

“Everybody loves me, babies, dogs, ya know, hot girls, cougars. I just have unbelievable mass appeal.” Mike Sorrentino (The Situation)​

4. Laser tag is famously 18 and under.

“If that b*tch still plays laser tag,

25 Iconic Kylie Jenner Quotes We’ll Never Forget

Quotes from the youngest billionaire, Kylie Jenner.

Kylie Jenner put out her office tour on October 11, and she sang her now-famous slogan “Rise and Shine”. Since then she has gotten more publicity than usual, but even that viral video isn’t what made her famous — Kylie Jenner has been in the spotlight for as long as she can remember.

She was only ten years old when her family’s reality show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians first aired in 2007, and the show continues to be one of the most watched shows on television to this day.

Being named the youngest self-made billionaire when she was 21, Kylie Jenner is truly a smart, successful businesswomen. At 18 she launched lip kits, a year later naming the company Kylie Cosmetics; and today Kylie Cosmetics sells way more than lip kits — they sell makeup highlighters, eyeshadow, blush, and concealer (it is my favorite concealer of all time).

Kylie’s brand also collaborated with her sisters Kim Kardashian West and Khloe Kardashian to create even more lip kits with them. She also has a skin care line, her own perfume and another perfume collaboration with Kim.

I love Keeping Up With the Kardashians — Kylie is my favorite out of the Kardashian / Jenner clan. She has proven her strong work ethic, earning her place as a self-made billionaire.

Kylie gave birth to her daughter Stormi in early 2018 with rapper Travis Scott.

Jenner and Scott are reportedly not together anymore — and rumor has it that Kylie is (secretively) back on the dating scene. She’s been linked to Drake, her ex boyfriend Tyga, Jaden Smith, Cody Simpson, and also maybe even one of her bodyguards.

Kylie Jenner obviously leads a fabulously interesting life with the rest of the Kardashians, and she’s said some iconic lines in Keeping Up With The Kardashians that we’ll probably never forget. Take a look below at some of the best Kylie Jenner quotes and funny one-liners from one of the most successful twenty-something-year-olds in history.

1. People often lose themselves because of haters.

“I feel like I’ve lost so many amazing traits because I’ve listened to stupid people, ignorant people who are bullies” — Kylie Jenner

2. Kylie, I relate so much to this.

“I take, like, 500 selfies to get one I like” — Kylie Jenner
