Rob, any chance of you ever coming across Bo at an event?
Editor Rob
It would be unlikely unfortunately
Dream(5'9.5") said on 24/Oct/18
@Canson

Especially with that one picture of Bo Burnham and Owen Benjamin, Bo looks taller and Owen has the camera advantage.

No disrespect to Peyton Manning or JJ Watt, but I have a feeling Bo will slightly edge those NFL players out.
Canson said on 21/Oct/18
@Dream and Junior: the more I’ve seen of him and that video with Holmes, I actually won’t rule out 6’5 3/8 now
Canson said on 21/Oct/18
@Alabamafr: I think with Bo, it’s due to him being so lanky as well. Dream even alluded to that below. He’s not only lanky but very thin and can almost come across as gangly. That’s not to put him down. I’d say it’s more because he is still getting used to his body. He’s still relatively young and can come across as uncomfortable with his height to an extent. I can also agree with what you said relative to your own height but I don’t think 6’5” is bad at all. Granted, I am 6’4 and change and I would take being my height over 6’5. Ideally, I would even say that 6’3” is more desirable than 6’4” especially since I’m not playing pro ball but i would rather just be a solid 6’4 than 6’4 1/4-1/3 that i am (I am a mm or two over 6’5 out of bed). I think anything over maybe the strong 6’5” that Christian is (6’5.25-1/3) is too tall. You can still manage at his height or even around 6’5.5 as well. However, If you’re around 6’6 daily at a low, that’s a bit much as you would be 6’7” or more in shoes pretty often or would have to be extremely selective with footwear to ensure that you aren’t. I have 3 taller friends 6’5.25, 6’6 and 6’7 and the taller two complain all the time about it. I often see all three wearing flats or casual shoes when we hang out. Now a days I wear thinner footwear at times as well just to keep myself no higher than 6’5” in footwear.

@Dream: Indeed!!!!
alabamafr said on 16/Oct/18
The statement he made about him doing anything to be like 6'1 or 6'2 is a statement i agree with to 100%. I'd sacrife so many things to be shorter. I'm about 6'5 and it ****ing sucks. I'd be supper happy if it could just lose half an inch seriously. It sucks being so tall. Lanky guys over 6'6 must feel like they are experiencing hell on earth on a daily basis, cause i almost feel like it.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 11/Oct/18
Rob, this is a picture request.

Click Here

I know it's an old photo of the show, Zach Stone is Gonna Be Famous. However, I only request it because the linked picture gives a more positive vibe.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 11/Oct/18
@Canson

You showed the quotes and I provided the pictures! It was a great teamwork!
Dream said on 11/Oct/18
@Canson Indeed! All that few but incredible evidence is there!

Pete Holmes needs a downgrade to 6’4.5”. Bo was leaning into Pete and the latter had to look up to the former!
Canson said on 10/Oct/18
@Dream: I can agree with the upgrade for Bo for sure. You and I showed Rob the evidence. But imho Holmes needs to be downgraded to 6’4.5
Dream(5'9.5") said on 2/Oct/18
@Andrea @CelebHeights 6’1.5” and @Rampage

What do you guys think of Burnham’s listing?
Dream(5'9.5") said on 30/Sep/18
@StatsSing I think Bo's height is solidified.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bo edges out 6'5" listed Holmes here. Pete busts a gut. Bo is leaning and his neck posture isn't perfect. Pete still has to look up to Bo. --> Click Here

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bo Burnham and Kobe Bryant both met another basketball athlete named Michael Carter-Williams (MCW). If we make a comparison with Michael Carter-Williams, Bo actually looks taller than Kobe.

Bo Burnham with Michael Carter-Williams --> Click Here

Kobe Bryant with Michael Carter-Williams --> Click Here

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bo also looks taller than 6'6" listed Owen Benjamin in this photo. Owen may have slightly loose posture, but Owen is closer to the camera and Bo looks taller. --> Click Here

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Finally, Bo actually looks 6'5.5" with TJ Miller. 1:54 seconds in the video. Keep in mind, Bo's neck posture is not straight. --> Click Here

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


If anything, Bo might be a Wladimir Klitscho or even a Ron Artest (Metta World Peace): basically in that 6'5.25"-6'5.5" zone.
184guy2 said on 27/Sep/18
lol 5'10 ?
5'7 being generous
StatsSing said on 27/Sep/18
Rob, what's your guess for the balding guy next to him? 5'10 is a ridiculous claim. I think Bo looks about a head taller than him. So if Bo's height is accurate, he'd be 5'7 at best.
Editor Rob
Unless he's making himself smaller on purpose, he's got to be 3 inches less than his claim.
Dream(5'9.5 said on 24/Sep/18
@Rob it’s very possible that Jon Bailey (honest trailer narrator) was inflating his height.

On the other hand, Bo can pull off looking near 6’5.5” at times. I dare say he could be like Wladimir Klitscho, except Bo would be more lanky than Wladimir.
Editor Rob
Yeah I would be surprised if he was 5ft 10.
Dream(5'9.5 said on 22/Sep/18
I’m amazed that Bo Burnham manages to look a lot taller than 6’6” listed Owen Benjamin.

Click Here

It might be posture, but Owen is closer to the camera. I took a screenshot of the picture when I found it.

Either way, this also further solidifies Bo’s current listing: A strong 6’5.25”, Burnham is.
Editor Rob
There was a guy I saw with Bo, he claimed to be 5ft 10 Click Here. I've no idea of his actual height though, but it was a big difference.
Dream(5'9.5 said on 6/Sep/18
Rob, how do you 'think' Bo would compare to JJ Watt, Dan Yeager, and Metta World Peace?
Editor Rob
He probably wouldn't look much different. It's not like he has terrible posture or short hair, so he'd look similar range.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 5/Sep/18
@Dream(5'9.5") Kobe might end up measure a good 6'5 or a few mm down like 6'4 7/8 (195.3), the picture of MCW was a little advantage next to Kobe. MCW is more like a strong 6'4 1/4. Bo def strong 196 plus guy.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 1/Sep/18
@Junior

Of course, next to Michael Carter Williams, Bo does look taller than Kobe, even with his lean. (Good lord, I broke my vow!)

I'd say the odds of Bo being 6'5 3/8" is greater than say 6'5 1/8". This listing works, but Bo's a strong 6'5.25" guy than a weak 6'5.25" person.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 30/Aug/18
@Dream(5'9.5") True. An inch that i accounted for Bo loose posture and Pete standing pretty straight and still look up on his eye level to Bo maybe Canson did not notice their posture much. I hardly see Pete over 194cm. I wouldn't give Pete over 6'4 3/8 from now and i believe Bo measured out a chance to be 6'5 3/8. TJ Miller is def over listed at 6'2 not even over 1.25" taller than 6'0 Tom Cavanagh who had little more more footwear.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 27/Aug/18
@Canson

I would say Bo Burnham looked at least 3/4” taller than Pete Holmes, considering Pete was maxed out in posture while Bo was just leaning onto Pete. Not like 1 1/2”, but it was at least 3/4”. If bo had less footwear, then it could really be 1 inch. However, Bo is definitely the taller of the two.

I do agree that Pete needs a downgrade. I also agree that Bo could also measure 6’5 3/8”, maybe similar to Christian, even though if it’s only 1/8ths above Bo’s low height. After seeing that video with TJ Miller, it’s seems arguable.
Canson said on 22/Aug/18
@Junior: Bo isn’t an inch taller than Pete. That’s at most 2cm. Holmes may be 6’4.5 and Bo 6’5.25
Canson said on 22/Aug/18
@Junior: Christian dips to 6’5.25 or a hair over prob if we go by lows. He uses an earlier afternoon height. As far as Burnham that is more like 6’5.25 imho. With MCW 6’4.25 is always possible. I measure 6’4.75 an hour out of bed myself and can measure 6’4.25 at a low
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 22/Aug/18
@Canson If we go by Michael Carter-Williams listed at 6'4 3/4 then Bo might be 6'5 3/4 no doubt. But ofcos Michael Carter-Williams might be only a flat 6'4 3/8 (194) since he was measured a.m. Bo a chance holding his low at 6'5 3/8 (196.5) like Christian-6'5 3/8". I will then throw a lowest for Pete being 6'4 3/8 like MCW.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 21/Aug/18
Again, this will be the 'LAST' time I bring up the comparison. I promise ya'll!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bo Burnham with Michael Carter Williams --> Click Here

Kobe Bryant with Michael Carter Williams --> Click Here

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Both are losing posture and they will edge out MCW, but Bo 'looks' taller than Kobe when comparing them. Bo will measure very close to JJ Watt, Howard Stern, and Metta World Peace as @Canson stated before.
Canson said on 18/Aug/18
@Junior: I think Bo may wake up 6’6” and dip to 6’5.25 at a low. Rob has him about right. Bo didn’t have a full inch on Holmes
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 16/Aug/18
Bo said: I'm Six-Five, Six-Six on a good day but also came out 6'6 lately. Well most people are only 1/2 inch taller on a good day and it destroy by the next day waking up. I did believe Bo Burnham could even be a proper measure for 6'5 1/2 while he always wear sneakers that give only max 2cm maybe to hide that he is atually taller than 6'5 1/4. Pete Holmes really look an inch lower than Bo. I notice a little loose Bo stand next to Pete for awhile seemingly can't hide a over 6'5 frame. Pete is only 6'4 1/2 an easy eye to see it not even a chance for 6'4 3/4 the shame for rounding up 6'5 and Bo use to downplay it but now start to claim 6'6. Hoping Rob met Bo someday to give an atual height he sees on Bo.
Nick odonnell said on 16/Aug/18
I would say out of bed he is at least 6 five and a half he is significantly taller than legit 6’5 celebrities
Dream(5'9.5 said on 16/Aug/18
Rob, at 1:54 seconds in the video, how tall does Bo look with 6'2" listed TJ Miller?

The Logo gets in the way though.
Editor Rob
You could argue 6ft 5.5 range that moment.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 9/Aug/18
both claims are consistent*

I meant to say that. S#@t!
Dream(5'9.5 said on 9/Aug/18
Rob, Bo did come out with a 6'6" claim in this video. However, this was long before he edged out Pete Holmes. I think it's worth an add, but that's up to you. It starts around 0:12 seconds in the video.

Click Here

This seems more like an out of bed measurement. Either way, both claims are surprising!
Editor Rob
Yes, I will slip it in after the first line.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 6/Aug/18
Honestly, I wouldn't go any lower than D). At times when Bo stands really tall, he can look C).

It's easy to rule out E) and A).
Dream(5'9.5 said on 1/Aug/18
Rob, where would you put Bo in, personally?


A) 199.5 cm/197.5 cm
B) 199 cm/197 cm
C) 198.5 cm/196.5 cm
D) 198 cm/196 cm
E) 197.5 cm/195.5 cm
F) 197 cm/195 cm


Also, what do you believe his ‘head-size’ could be?
Editor Rob
At the moment around D is ok

@Canson

Could you link me a picture of Kurt and Charles Barkley? I couldn't find pictures of them on google.
Canson said on 29/Jul/18
@Dream: I don’t think Kurt is that tall. With Charles Barkley he doesn’t look that tall either. Kurt may be more 6’6” or 6’6.5
Dream(5'9.5") said on 28/Jul/18
Bo also looks easily taller than Kurt Braunohler (Who had flat footwear when he matched Conan O'Brien in height).


Click Here (Bo has the worst posture, and he's still the tallest out of everyone.)
Click Here (This is a VERY weird picture. I don't know why Bo looks nearly 6'7" with Kurt here.)
Click Here (This is the best photo of them. Bo looks at least 1.5-1.75 inches taller than Kurt. Bo is even behind the camera, and he's bending his knee. Everyone else is standing straight.)


This listing is perfect.

Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 9/Jul/18
Bo upgrade seem way good enough. I still think Benjamin Owen need a downgrade at 6'5 3/4 and Pete Holmes at 6'4 1/2.
Canson said on 5/Jul/18
@Dream: yea Holmes may be 194-195 or weak 6’5”
Canson said on 30/Jun/18
That’s a decent upgrade Rob!
Dream(5'9.5") said on 30/Jun/18
He's likely the only honest youtuber on this website.

He's taller than Pete Holmes and Michael Carter Willams. When comparing Bo and Kobe Bryant with Michael Carter Williams, Bo does look taller than Kobe Bryant.

No reason to doubt a strong 6'5".
Dream(5'9.5") said on 30/Jun/18
Nice listing!
Canson said on 29/Jun/18
@Rob and Dream: he actually did come out with that with Peter Holmes. He said he’s 6’5. 6’6 on a good day. 6’5.5 may be a bit expensive but 6’5.25 may be a good fit. He looks a strong 6’5” to be honest. What you have Rob may be perfect as well but I don’t think he gets down to 6’5” flat unless he loses an inch throughout the day and maybe measured earlier in the day at around 5 1/2
Editor Rob
Yeah I remember it mentioned, I think that quote is enough to say he is 6ft 5 and something, a 1/4 inch might be fair.
Dream(5'9.5 said on 27/Jun/18
Rob, could you add this quote?

Click Here

In the article, this is the quote: "at six and a half feet, he holds himself tentatively, as if still adjusting to his height." He definitely gives that impression at times.

The article did mention this: "He had shot up to six feet three inches, growing so fast that his back had stretch marks." I feel that 6'3" is a S#@tcase for Bo. This was three years after eighth grade.

6'3" would put Kobe Bryant at 6'2.75" and poor Michael Carter Williams and Pete Holmes at 6'2.5".
Editor Rob
I think since he's given 6ft 5 a few times, the description is ok. If he ever comes out with 'just over' 6ft 5, that would be interesting, don't rule it out one day.
Dream(5'9.5 said on 23/Jun/18
Rob, do you plan on re-looking at Bo or are you pretty happy with his listing?

At certain times, Bo does give a taller impression than he claims.
Editor Rob
Well I wouldn't go any lower than this.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 21/Jun/18
Bo is not under 196cm. Still need a 1/8 upgrade and that Benjamin Owen need to be down at least 6'5.75". Flat 6'5 will be silly.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 17/Jun/18
Rob, I think he could be added to the list of Directors. Bo is making his first movie, Eighth Grade. (I'll be seeing it in theaters.)

@Christian

Quick question, do you happen to be in California at the moment? The Vidcon is taking place in California. The day for Bo is June 22 (which is a Friday). If you want to (that's up to you), you could meet him in person.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 16/Jun/18
@Canson He's definitely seems very modest about it. He probably measured 6'5.5" at one point. At Christian's Height and Bo's Height, it's very likely to have a one inch shrinkage.

I do think 6'5 1/4" is very arguable though 6'5 1/8" is perfect as well. I'm planning on meeting him in person somewhere in an event he could be hosting, but it will take some time before I can meet him.
Canson said on 15/Jun/18
@Dream: he says here 6’5, “6’6 on a good day”. Maybe 6’5 1/2 morning height an hour out of bed but certainly not gonna dip under 6’5 if even that low. Maybe he’s even Christian’s height at a low 6’5 1/4”. He did say he would rather be shorter like 6’1

Click Here
Canson said on 14/Jun/18
@Christian: yea he’s be similar with JJ Watt possibly. At worst maybe a 195-196 guy
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 13/Jun/18
@Dream

Bo's not under 6'5" in my opinion.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 13/Jun/18
I start to see Bo could be a candidate who downplay a 1/2 inch or 197cm. He look an inch taller than Pete Homes and look 4" taller than TJ Miller. Miller the more i look at him look nothing over 6'1.5" max when compare to a legit 6'0 guy Tom Cavanagh met by Rob. Bo also look about 1/4 shorter than Benjamin Owen who i think 6'5 3/4 not a full 6'6.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 13/Jun/18
@Canson Check these videos out! It's a similar thing to John Cleese ducking under doorways!


At 0:04 In this video, Bo is 'roughly' the same height as a very big doorway. That's him in dancing motion. His footwear is no more than light sneakers. Although I'm not sure how reliable this reference is, it's one showing. The show is called Zach Stone Is Going To Be Famous.

Click Here




This is a better reference. Here is one of his old videos as a former youtube star. At 0:52 seconds in the video, you see Bo having to duck under a literal doorway. Of course at 0:56 seconds in the video, he's 'roughly' the same height as that doorway. Anyone can tell he's a very tall guy without question. Of course, he's still in his lousy posture and I believe his footwear is light.

Click Here
Canson said on 12/Jun/18
@Dream: well said! I actually thought I read he was 6’4.5 but that seems believeable. Only thing is MCW has long hair not sure if it was before the draft.

As for Bo, he looks a legit 195-196 at worst imho. Maybe a full 196. He would measure very close with JJ Watt or Peyton imho
Dream(5'9.5") said on 11/Jun/18
@Canson Don't worry about it! I would have guessed the same thing if more 'accurate sources weren't shown!

@Christian 6'5 3/8" What do you speak of Bo's listing?
Dream(5'9.5") said on 10/Jun/18
Back on topic, Bo Burnham is definitely taller than Pete Holmes and Michael Carter Williams even with his very loose posture.

We should 'Burnham' for being a strong 6'5" (That pun was intended! Nothing personal!)
Canson said on 10/Jun/18
@Dream: I concur with your previous statement. Bo looks like someone who holds a full 6’5” among the list you mentioned
Canson said on 10/Jun/18
@Christian: you’re right. I saw Rob now has a page for him. And surprisingly because he only had two good seasons in the Pros and has pretty much been injured. He’d likely be my height. As I would measure about 6’4.75 an hour out of bed as well. I don’t know why I thought he measured 6’4.5. Lol I’m slippin!
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 9/Jun/18
@Canson

Are you sure he was measured 6'4.5"? He was measured 6'4.75" (in the morning) at the 2013 Draft. Click Here That's not to say that 6'4" flat at his lowest is impossible though. Some players are 3/4" lower than their measurements.
Canson said on 8/Jun/18
@Christian: MCW could be 6’4 at a low. He was 6’4.5 morning which could mean 6’4 3/8 since the NBA doesn’t do 1/8” increments. NBA usually is about an hour out of bed like the NFL now a days
Canson said on 8/Jun/18
@Junior: Kobe would edge him. MCW measured AM being 2009 or later. MCW would likely not be much over 6’4” if he’s even higher than a flat 6’4”. I doubt he’s under that. Bo may edge Kobe however
Canson said on 8/Jun/18
@Dream: I actually don’t disagree at all! Bo may be as listed 196 Kobe 195 and MCW 193 range
Dream(5'9.5") said on 8/Jun/18
@Christian 6'5 3/8"

True, I would say that Kobe Bryant looked like he was in slight 'motion,' meaning he looks like he was walking. I don't know. That's the only picture. Plus, the top of their heads are the same and bizarre camera angles are there.

Back on topic, I think Bo seems more of a genuine 6'5" guy who could stretch up to 6'5.5" at times.
Dream(5'9.5 said on 7/Jun/18
@Canson That is true, but in that weird picture, MCW and Kobe Bryant looks exactly the same (the eye levels are deceiving). I wished there were more pictures of MCW and Kobe, but that’s the only one I can find of them for now! If there’s any other pictures or comparison, let me know by all means!

Comparing Bo and Kobe with Michael Carter Williams, Bo Burnham looks slightly taller than Kobe Bryant. The reason why is because I’m accounting for Bo leaning and slouching.

Feel free to disagree with me though! I can be wrong, even when I stand by my opinion!
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 6/Jun/18
Michael Carter Williams is no way taller than Kobe. The angle just make them look similar in height and Michael had like a 1/8 hair and slightly close to camera angle. He was measure 6'5 3/4 with shoes and should usually be 6'4 1/2. Bo Burham could argue as high as 6'5.5" downplay a half inch a possible chance.
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 6/Jun/18
@Dream

The pics would've been a bit better if they showed footwear. And Williams was measured 6'5 3/4" with shoes so I assume he's about 6'4 1/4" barefoot at his low. He's shorter than Kobe.
Canson said on 5/Jun/18
@Dream: it’s hard to tell from the pic. I think MCW measures 6’4.5 morning height meaning 6’4-6’4 1/8 afternoon. Kobe would likely edge him by a good 2cm
Dream(5'9.5") said on 4/Jun/18
EDIT* Rob, could you delete the other comments i've made? There is a better comparison I would like to make here. Thanks!



Bizarre comparison:



Bo Burnham (even with the obvious slouch) looks taller than 'Michael Carter Williams.'

Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 16/May/18
6'5 1/8 i believe that makes Pete at his low 6'4 3/8. Benjamin Owen and Trevor Moore both 6'5.5" range. Bo is on the modesty side of height claim.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 14/May/18
Nice listing!

I think John Cleese and Tom Noonan would end up in a similar listing like Bo Burnham.
Dream(5'9.5 said on 11/May/18
Rob, how tall does Bo look beside this doorway at 0:04 seconds?

Click Here

I notice he has to slightly duck or huck some under the doorway.


Here's another (old) video where he has to duck again.

Click Here



He could really be 6'5.25."
Editor Rob
I think for Bo, giving him a little over 6ft 5 isn't unreasonable, as there are occasions he certainly looks a strong 6ft 5 zone.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 8/May/18
Rob, since he owns a youtube channel, and he's does have over a million subscribers, shouldn't he be in the 'Youtube' Stars as well?
Dream(5'9.5") said on 7/May/18
@Junior Hernandez 1990

Also, Rob did say that out of Thomas Ian Griffith and Bo Burnham, Bo has a good chance of being the stronger 6’5’er than Griffith.
Dream(5'9.5 said on 6/May/18
@Junior I certainly agree with your estimates!


I'd say Owen Benjamin isn't as tall as he claims.

Bo seems more like the modest guy who will claim what range he's in.

Pete seems like a guy who would round up.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 2/May/18
Honestly Bo can look 6'5.5" with Pete Holmes. Pete is more like 6'4.5" range looking him with 6'3.75-6'4" Conan O'brien. But then 6'6 listed Owen Benjamin look 1/4 taller than Bo. Owen Benjamin i could give absolute 6'5.75" really don't look much of a 6'6 guy. Bo is at least 6'5 1/4 possible over it than under it.

Owen Benjamin 6'5.75
Bo 6'5.5"
Pete 6'4.5"

Rob, what are your thoughts in this picture (I took a screenshot of the video because it's the only second that both of them are standing kinda decent.)

Bo Burnham is leaning, and he has less footwear. Pete Holmes is standing with near perfect posture.
Editor Rob
They could be within same range.
Dream(5'9.5 said on 18/Apr/18
Rob, silly question, but do you plan on trying to see him in person?

Yet, Bo--even when he's leaning--towers the F#@! out of Shane Dawson. (To maybe exaggerate a bit more, Bo does make Shane look 5'8"-5'9").

I see more 6'5.25" for Bo.

@Dream(5'9.5") I guage out two cm between Bo and Pete thats how they look. Pete is more solid 194cm crossing in between 6'4.25-6'4.5" and Bo i had a hard time seeing just flat 6'5 so i give it full 1/4 more.

Bo does seem like a genuine 6’5” person with the chance of being 6’5.25” even if he would be a mm shorter than Christian.

He really did edge out Pete Holmes even when Bo didn’t stand straight to compete with Holmes not to mention Bo had less footwear and still was taller than Holmes.
Junior said on 7/Jan/18
Max 196cm def 5mm shorter than Christian-6'5 3/8 ;)

Rob, who do you think would measure taller, Bo Burnham or Michael Jordan?

I’d give Bo the edge easily.
Editor Rob: I'd still say they were very close.

He edged out Pete Holmes who's around 194cm so maybe legit 6'5" for Bo or at worst 6'4.75"
Dreampuffe(5'9.5 said on 23/Nov/17
This guy would be taller than the 'entire Skarsgard' family!
Agreco4l said on 21/Nov/17
Definitely 6’5”, very very very tall.
Dreampuffe(5'9.5") said on 15/Nov/17
He’s taller than Pete Holmes even when he didn’t compete and had less footwear.

196-197 cm is more likely.
Jeremy said on 11/Nov/17
195-196, out of bed 197. This dude clears 6 foot 5 for sure
Dreampuffe(5'9.5") said on 11/Nov/17
Yet, he still looked taller than Pete Holmes despite him hunching back so much!

I wouldn’t be surprised if this guy measured taller than Michael Jordan.

Pete Holmes is more like 194cm and Bo is 196cm and some scene Bo obviously did not stand straight to compete with Pete.
Mark(5'9.5 said on 2/Sep/17
Rob, how likely is 6'5.25"?

He looks 1/2 taller than 6'5" Pete Holmes despite wearing converse. I do think he could measure similar to a Peak John Cleese, Brock O'Hurn, and Peyton Manning.
Editor Rob: it is possible for him.
Mark(5'9.5 said on 2/Sep/17
He towers Shane Dawson.

6'5.25" it is.
even said on 22/Jul/17
6 foot 5 is his legit height

Around the 2:10 mark Bo states "I'm 6'5", 6'6" on a good day". Standing next to Pete Holmes, he looks about 1/2" to 1" taller than Pete, so maybe Bo is 6'5-5.5" and Pete is 6'4.5-5"?
Dr Gonzo said on 18/May/17
Click Here Claims "6'5, 6'6 on a good day" here, which strikes my ear as "6'6 or a hair under it out of bed 6'5-6'5.5 evening". He's clearly taller than 6'5 listed Pete Holmes in this video despite the fact that Holmes is standing bolt straight the whole time while Bo is all hunched over. 32 seconds in you get a good view.

196cm easy. what a tall guy!
Josh said on 3/Feb/17
Bo is a solid 6'5" and he always wears Converse with little padding. His head is huge, which gives the illusion that he's short.
nobody said on 27/Jan/17
to anyone saying things like 6'5.5 is way off, he looks almost the exact same height as a 6'6 pianist. he's said he was 6'6 before and also 6'5.

Don't find this guy particularly funny but does look this tall...
Editor Rob: humour is certainly varied and subjective.
S.J.H said on 19/Jan/17
6'5.5 is way off. Just 6'5 not surprise and could be 6'5.25 in the morning
Dmeyer said on 18/Jan/17
yes he looks 6'5 surprising stand up high comedian cannot be topped even by carrot top
John said on 18/Jan/17
Yes that's absolutely true. It happens to me all the time. Sometimes you feel like replying that 'creative' comment with something like 'Oh really? I thought I was short'. BTW I'm 3in taller.
Josh said on 18/Jan/17
This seems about right for him. He always seems to be the tallest person in the room. Maybe even a tad more like 6'5.25-6'5.5
S.J.H said on 18/Jan/17
No. He look right at 6'5 not over and others just look short next to him
Jake said on 16/Jan/17
From what I've saw, this guy doesn't actually look 6'5" while being on stage, but when I look at photos of him with various kinds of people he looks taller than his 6'5" claim in my opinion.
