I think we should add a disclaimer, though:

His stuff can be a little racy. He uses a lot of puns and...ahem...suggestive if not graphic imagery. His album is marked with "explicit lyrics" for good reason.

However! I also agree that he is the funniest guy to come along in a while. He's not just a funny guy, I think he's a real entertainer and he has the whole package. I hate it when comics are all about sex, or it's "toilet humor", and it isn't even funny, but Bo's so clever that it comes across as wit instead of cheap shots.

So you may be a little shocked, but if you can stand it, it's a good time.  ;D

(I hope you agree toadsage; maybe we've been desensitized or something but I know some people could be sensitive to it.)
