Bo Burnham is coming to Dublin this February

The much-loved comedian will be visiting to present his directorial debut.

Comedian, actor, musician, writer, and director Bo Burnham will be visiting Dublin this February to present his feature directorial debut Eighth Grade.

The film will be screened as part of the Fantastic Flix festival, a prelude to the Virgin Media International Film Festival, which is set to take place from 20 February to 3 March.

Burnham's movie Eighth Grade is set to be screened in Cineworld Dublin on Wednesday 27 February, a comedy-drama that he wrote and directed.

It tells the story of thirteen-year-old Kayla who endures the tidal wave of contemporary suburban adolescence as she makes her way through the last week of middle school—the end of her thus far disastrous eighth grade year—before she begins high school.

The movie has received an incredible critical response (99% on Rotten Tomatoes, 90% on Metacritic) since being released in the States back in August 2018.

More information about the screening, as well as the full details on both the Virgin Media DIFF and the Fantastic Flix festival, can be found on the official website here.

You can check out the trailer for Eighth Grade below, which will be getting an Irish cinematic release on Friday 26 April:
