Last night marked the official end of the Make Happy tour, and I think it’s time I break the entire “make happy” meaning down (not) briefly. I am beyond lucky to have been able to see this performance three times. twice in my home of Boston, MA, and once traveling three hours to Torrington, CT, the waspiest name ever. through these two weeks, I gained a lot. I gained a TON of respect to the amount I already had for Bo. he’s an insane performer, and anyone who’s seen him live can vouch for me. to put in so much time and churn out this wonderful hour of laughing and smiling (and not dying yet) is incredible, and I’m sure so many people are as proud of him as I am. I also gained a lot of really solid friends. after seeing him the first time with my best friend, I was so entirely hooked on it that I had to find more people to converse with. thanks to Twitter, I found a lovely few people who felt this way about Bo and Make Happy. because I found them, I was even able to see him a THIRD time, and with two lovely people I’d never met in person before, as well as meet two MORE friends at the venue. I was so lucky to even do this once, three times is beyond my wildest dreams. on top of those three times were two times meeting the man of the hour, shaking his hand, and telling him how much I enjoyed his work. I’ve never been so grateful to have been put through so much anxiety of getting tickets, getting to venues on time, waiting in the cold for two hours, and falling asleep in class the next day. Make Happy has been said to be Bo’s best work. and I know he’s only going to get stronger and better at what he does. I can’t wait to see him do this crazy shit again. Thank you, Bo Burnham, for making me (and so many others) happy. I hope you’re happy too.
