Watch Trailer for Bo Burnham’s Writer-Director Debut “Eighth Grade”

Bo Burnham really is making an impressive showing as a director after making himself into a formidable comedian. From his work on his own specials to directing comedy specials for Jerrod Carmichael and Chris Rock, Burnham has made the next step to a feature length film Eighth Grade that he both wrote and directed. 

The trailer promises a coming of age of story that has a bit of wry, satiric edge and something that could be really special (perhaps, 2018′s Lady Bird). The trailer will definitely make you think about how painful a time 8th grade might have been for you.

Look for Eighth Grade in theaters on July 13th.
