How tall is Bo Burnham

Bo Burnham's Height

6ft 5 ¼ (196.2 cm)

American comedian. In the Daily Northwestern when asked "What’s something surprising about yourself?", he replied "I’m 6-foot-5. It’s true. Brace yourself for it.". He has also claimed "Six-Six" and "Six-Five flat"
I enjoy meeting everyone after the shows. I would say a good 90% say, "you're so tall!" while the other 10% say "dude, you're so tall!"

I'm Six-Five, Six-Six on a good day....I'd do anything to be like Six-One, Six-Two

Bo could really be 6’5.5”

Rob, how tall does Bo look with 5’10.5” Josh Hamilton, at 0:07-0:08 seconds, in this video?

Seems over 6ft 5 with him, but not 6ft 6
Canson said on 20/Apr/19
@Dream: Bo can look 6’5.5 at times but I also doubt Butler is 6’5.75. He looks 6’5-6’5.5 on the court and measured 6’6” flat (assuming it wasn’t rounded up) in the morning. He honestly can look just 6’5” at times. MCW is a morning height as well

Could Bo really be 6'5.5"?
Dream said on 17/Apr/19
@Canson

Bo is similar to Wladimir Klitschko, in terms of claiming 6'5" and 6'6", on and off. Both are certainly in that very strong 6'5" zone.

I felt that 6'5" flat was rounding down because, sometimes, Bo tends to slouch and hunch a lot. Other times, he stands with decent posture and he looks look bloody huge.
Canson said on 16/Apr/19
He said 6’6” here. My thinking is that he had to have measured strong 6’5” range at a low or that he measured weak 6’6” in the morning and rounded up. I doubt he’s less than what Rob lists him at a normal low and 6’5 3/8 may actually be okay for him

Canson said on 16/Apr/19
Haslem looks more than 2” taller than MCW all things considered. If anything he’s not even standing as straight as MCW and looks 2” with looser posture. But it’s also possible that a morning measured MCW grew and is maybe 6’4.5 and Hadley 6’6.5.

Of course, Bo Burnham looks taller than Joe Manganiello, with TJ Miller.

Bo with TJ (at 1:20-1:23 seconds in the video. At the end of the video, it zooms out and Bo’s footwear is revealed. It’s blurry, but you can kinda see extremely light converse shoes.) — Click Here

Joe with TJ (TJ has worse posture while Joe was standing decent. TJ even has less footwear and Joe was wearing boots.) — Click Here

Joe’s eye level don’t come above TJ’s Afro hair. Bo’s eye level does come above TJ’s Afro hair, quite easily. TJ even stood much better with Bo than with Joe.

Joe even had boots while Bo was in light converse.

@184guy2

That’s because Nick was walking. Andy was standing.

Like I said, Conan and Nick didn’t posed properly and I did say Nick had a camera advantage. I hope you did read my previous comment through.
184guy2 said on 15/Apr/19
Very poor camera angle and comparsion , the same camera angle from Kobe and Conan , that's why some of you think that Kobe is a lot taller when he isn't .
184guy2 said on 15/Apr/19
@Dream

You must be kidding , Conan is far behind the camera , if anything Conan looks like that he had to be the taller guy , and BTW Nick didn't look much different than Andy .

@184guy2 and @Junior

I saw the video of All star bowling (it’s deleted now. I tried finding it, but it’s nowhere to be found). Bo and Nick were wearing very normal shoes, and Bo still looked a lot taller than Nick.

We can't see their feet
We don't know how tall the other guy really is
Isn't a question of accept or not that Bo is 6'6 , is more the fact that we don't have enough material to analyze , in comparsion with other celebs

Click Here Bo pass for 6'6.75" maybe 6'7 with 6'5 Nick Thune here but we do not know about the footwear. Of course certain people couldn't accept if Bo was really 6'6, Bo had 6'2 TJ miller an easy 4" or more. Soon there will be more prove coming on anything under 6'6 is hard for Bo. We'll see.
Dream said on 12/Apr/19
@185cm

Bo didn’t have camera advantages. He’s clearly taller than Pete. Bo is clearly much more lax in posture and he’s looking down. Pete is standing a bolt (with much better posture) and he’s look up to Bo, yet Bo is still easily taller.

If you watch the video again at 0:32-0:33 seconds, there is no camera advantage. The camera is not in an angle. Bo is simply taller.

Here’s what a ‘camera advantage’ looks like.

I just wanna say that he has camera adventages alot and pete has camera adventages sometimes too, but at the time when they hug, bo's head is bigger than pete's. That quite easy to tell that Bo has camera adventages there.
Yeah, in the video he seem taller than joe a litte or nearly an inch taller if we take Jt as a scale but Joe is a weak 6'5"

Yeah, TJ is bending down, and Joe is standing decent. TJ has less footwear, yet Joe’s eyes doesn’t come above his Afro hair.

Bo’s eyes comes above TJ’s Afro hair, with less footwear, at 1:53-1:55 seconds. (At the end of the video, it zooms out and we can kinda see Bo’s footwear, which looks like extremely less blue converse.) — Click Here

@185cm

You’re using screenshots where Bo is in walking motion and Pete is standing. The ones where Bo is standing close to Pete with camera evenness, Bo is taller.

Click Here — (Bo is so much more loose in posture. There’s no camera advantage. Bo’s top head is clearly higher, and his ears are higher, no matter how much he looks down while Pete is looking straight.)

Click Here — (Bo’s eyelevel is higher. His ears are higher, and his top head is higher.)

Bo isn’t standing well to compete with Pete and Bo still looks taller.

That fact you used a screenshot where Bo was in walking motion and Pete was standing, already decides that you’re kinda new here.

Bo tends to wear ‘light footwear.’ He doesn’t always stand to compete with Heights. (Unlike a guy like Anthony Joshua.) Finally, the ground looks even (in the picture of Bo and Michael), based on how the crowd looks.

Bo Burnham does look 2-3 cms taller than Joe Manganiello, with TJ Miller.

Joe Manganiello’s eyes are under TJ Miller’s Afro hair. This is also considering TJ’s obvious lean, Joe standing better, and TJ having even less footwear.

And then, we already have Bo being taller than MCW and Kobe Bryant. (Which I’ve posted more than I can count.)

@Dream really not convinced me
In the video with Pete, pete could look taller than bo alot of times. He may loose a little height but not much, and when standing close to Pete, he standing really straight

Like i said, in the picture with michael we not sure if he tip toe or not and what about his shoes, and in that picture bo's head is bigger than michael's head, it could be he standing closer to the camera.
I really curious what bo look like next to a strong 6'5' like howard stern.
But yeah, it's just my opinion, it's really hard to judge a person height from just some picture. He's a really tall guy.
Canson said on 9/Apr/19
@Dream: I believe Bo is strong 6’5 and Pete is weak 6’5/strong 6’4” range 194cm zone
Dream said on 9/Apr/19
Also, I wouldn’t call Bo a guy with ‘best posture.’ I’d say Anthony Joshua (6’5.75”) has the better posture and that guy always tries to look the tallest, even with Greg Davies.
Dream said on 8/Apr/19
@185

Bo actually looks taller than Pete. He’s a lot more loose in posture and Pete is standing a bolt. Bo’s eye level, ears, and head is still higher than Pete.

With Michael Carter Williams (who was measured 6’4.75” in the morning without shoes) Bo looks taller than Kobe Bryant.
185 said on 7/Apr/19
I think he just 6'5
I think he's about same height as pete holmes. He can look a little taller due to standing closer to the camera, has some camera advantages. In the picture with owen benjamin, we can't see their footwear. He probably just tip toe in that picture, no way in hell even if he 6'6 or 6'7 he could tower over benjamin like that. I see a lot of tall people tip toe when they taken photos with someone their height or taller. Not to mention his posture always the best, standing as the talles as he could.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 26/Mar/19
@Dream If we go by extreme low it would affect Jared Padalecki not over 6'3.75", as we know now Bo is solid inch on Pete so seriously Pete atually had Conan by 1" when the one time they both had leveled heels in footwear the other time Pete only look half inch on Conan because Pete had very thin shoes not more than 0.6" and Conan in his solid 1.1" style, Jared apear on Conan show last year look strong fraction shorter than Conan (Jared w vans sneaker 0.8" and Conan 1.25" style) which define in opposite Jared seem to be near 1/4 taller than Conan if put them both barefoot.

Extreme low case:
Bo 6'5.5"
Pete 6'4.5"
Conan 6'3.5"
Michael Carter Williams 6'4.25"
Jared Padalecki 6'3.75" (comparison against Conan O'brien)

Standardize listing in celebheights.com case:
Bo 6'6
Pete 6'5
Conan 6'4
Michael Carter Williams 6'4.75"
Jared Padalecki 6'4.25"

Bo get stuck 6'5.25" listing case:
Pete 6'4.25"
Conan 6'3.25"
Michael Carter Williams 6'4
Jared Padalecki 6'3.5"

I'm hoping others will look at the big picture why Bo should be getting a 6'6 upgrade.
Dream said on 23/Mar/19
@Canson @Christian

Off-topic: This is about Christopher Lee. Because Christopher Lee was extremely active in ‘World War 2,’ I’m beginning to wonder if Sir Lee lost Height from World War 2.
Dream said on 22/Mar/19
@Junior

I agree it would likely be an inch, considering Bo's looser posture.

Click Here

Clearly, Bo is much looser in posture and he's looking down. The top of his head is higher, and his ears are higher too. Bo is definitely the taller of the two for sure.

Pete could be 6'4.5" and Bo can look 6'5.5".
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 21/Mar/19
I suggest people should watch the clip of Bo on Pete Holmes show again and repeat at least 4-5 times. Click Here 0:32 pause and look carefully the top of their head its like 3cm not 2cm so at least a full inch because Pete eye tilt up look at him and Bo tilt his eye down look at Pete, that may defines near half inch eye to eye which is false. 1 inch is definitely works if they get measure. There is nothing wrong saying Bo is 6'6 if Pete claim 6'5 well the very odd we could put down Pete 6'4.5" and Bo 6'5.5" but he isn't under 6'5.5" and 6'5 1/4 is way too low and even funny if Bo get another upgrade at 6'5.5" still not match up Pete Holmes listing and that would all link back to Conan O'Brien down to 6'3.5". What i'm honest telling is that no matter Bo is really 6'6 or not he still deserved the 6'6 upgrade than stay 6'5.25". Lastly Bo had a clearly 3cm not less on his 6'4.75" listed friend Michael Carter-Williams no way 1/2 inch not 2cm.

@184guy2 I'm not judging that one picture of Owen with Bo. I go with comparison with other people they have met with. They were close in height or i can even tell you high chance they might not be edging each other barefooted.
Canson said on 19/Mar/19
@Dream: I’m thinking MCW is my height. I measure near 6’4.75 (194.8) an hour out of bed so they would at least give me 6’4.75 yet I’m closer to 6’4.25 at a low so MCW could be 6’4 1/4-3/8 but Bo could have “close” to an inch. 194 for Pete perhaps and 196.2 for Bo. Or could be 2cm like I thought originally since 2cm is .7874 and 1” from that is less than 1/4” away
Dream said on 18/Mar/19
@Canson @Junior @184guy2

Actually, the more I look into it, the more I think Bo might have close to 1 inch on Pete.

Click Here

Here me out. Bo’s ears are higher and look at the screenshot from above. The top of Bo’s head is clearly higher, even when Bo is looking down, hunchback and and lax in posture. Pete is standing a bolt, with near-perfect posture.

I think Junior has a point. I can be wrong.

Yeah, this is a great listing for Bo.

Bo also demolished Owen Benjamin’s 6’7” and 6’8” claims like a bare, somehow managing to look taller than Owen. (Yes. Owen is kinda loose in posture, but Bo is further away from the camera, slightly.) Having that said, Owen doesn’t look anywhere near 6’8” with Burnham.

@184guy: that’s what I estimated was 2cm. Burhmam 196.2 and Pete around 194.2 basically 6’4.5 and 6’5.25. Maybe Pete comes to 194 but I doubt less

@184guy2

Bo happens to look taller than self-claiming 6’8” Michael Geier, even with his obvious slouch and lean.

@Canson it’s probably 2.5 cm between them. Bo still looks taller than Pete. I do think 6’5.25” is a low for Bo.
Canson said on 9/Mar/19
@Junior: Bo didn’t have him by a full inch I don’t think. 2cm probably but Holmes looks weak 6’5” either way. He looked only around an inch to 1.5” taller than Conan. Conan isn’t more than 191cm today
184guy2 said on 8/Mar/19
Bo wasn't 1 inch over Pete . They had similar sneakers . The very max that I could see between than was 2cm . Just because Owen looked shorter in one single pic , doesn't mean he is
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 7/Mar/19
@184guy2 We can rule it out now. Btw Bo had Pete by an inch. There is already more prove that Bo could be 6'6. Some taller guys downplay height which is possible.

@Dream You agree 6'5 1/2 for Bo that would make Owen Benjamin,Pete Holmes and Conan O'Brien straight down half inch. It could work too :)
Dream said on 24/Feb/19

Bo would definitely be 6’6” out of bed. I do admire the way Bo ‘demolishes’ 6’8” claiming people!

I wouldn't call Bo 6'6", but I definitely think Bo is over 6'5" for sure. 6'5.5" is definitely arguable at times.

Then Pete Holmes wouldn't be a mm under 6'5 flat ... and Conan a solid 6'4er

Not surprise if Bo will edge out Brain Posehn a fraction. Brain look more like a weak 6'6 and Bo closer to 6'6.

If Bo is a strong 6'5 then he probably wakes up at 6'6 or maybe 1/8 th too. After an hour he is more like 6'5 5/8.
During lunch he would possibly measure very close to 6'5.5 but ya 3/8 is also possible.

@Dream and Shashank 6’3 3/8: he would definitely measure that at some point during the day. If that’s not his low then it would certainly be a lunch time type of height for him or late morning. Meaning 6’5.25 could be the afternoon height or his low for the day. He could probably come all the way down to 6’5 on a day where he hits an extreme low
Dream said on 7/Feb/19

@Canson @Junior

For the people who have met Bo Burnham and I’ve chatted with them? They had up close videos and pictures of him, some of them were deleted, but they showed it and I saw them.

Normally, I would take one’s meeting celebrity claim with a grain of salt, but they did show some near up-close videos and pictures of them. Yeah, I don’t deny they’ve met Bo Burnham.

Like I said before, they said Bo is extremely tall in person. One of them even called him a ‘fooking Giant.’

Like I said, I still want to meet Bo Burnham. Not just because of his height but because I actually like some of his songs. (His humor and content are ‘NOT’ for everyone.)

Bo can easily qualify for 6'5 3/8.

@184guy2

I think weren’t standing well with Jordan Peele. The other video I posted of Bo and Jordan was problematic because there weren’t any real good shots with Bo and Jordan, not to mention Jordan had literal afro hair.

Bo still looks taller than Kobe with MCW. (Especially with Bo’s lean.)

Even in his old videos, Bo was already extremely tall. There was another video (I won't link it because of weirdness) where Bo is barefoot (Or in very light socks) and he had to duck under several giant doorways. The video was taken at night, so he still would've been over 6'5" for sure.

He really can look 6'5.5" at times.

@Dream The worst i would think of Bo at 6'5 5/8 and Pete Holmes not lower than 6'4 5/8 for both of them. If to go by Thomas F. Wilson 6'2 1/2 listing here then Bo straight away would get a 6'6 listing to be fair since Rob had Pete at 6'5.

Rob, I was chatting with a few people online (fanbase), who actually met Bo Burnham in person. (Recently, he's probably going to go back on tour.)

They didn't tell me exactly how tall, but they said he was extremely tall. Some of them called Bo a 'f#@king Giant.'

I need to meet him and see him in one of his shows. Hopefully, I can afford it though!

@Junior

A case of 6’5.5” can be made for Bo. I also think Pete needs a downgrade.

Based on he (Bo) stacks up with Thomas F. Wilson (who Rob has met), Bo looks at least 6’5.5” if not a bit more.
Based on how Bo stacks with measured athletes like MCW and Kobe Bryant, Bo can look 6’5.5” as well.
Based on the picture of Bo and Owen, Bo looks surprisingly taller.

There is one thing we can agree on: Bo isn’t under 6’5”, and he really does look over 6’5”, even when one considers the very light footwear he wears.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 22/Jan/19
@Dream I watch multiple times Bo on Pete show that hug scene i could see strongly an inch if Bo got to stand straight like Pete. Pete claim 6'5 and so Bo is 6'6 thats it. Worst both were 1/4 under. Not surprise if Rob met Bo in person will change listing here any soon. Click Here 0:32 top of their head difference could not hide a thing. Both have equally flat footwear. Pete had to look up to Bo an Bo tilt down his head look at Pete. There is no way 1/4 between them and 1/2-3/4 inch wasn't that much when two guy face to face each other. Rob def under listed Bo by strong 1/2 inch and in the morning Bo def measure 6'6 and 6'6 1/2 out of bed since Pete had a chance to be Kobe's height at his low 6'4 3/4.
Dream said on 18/Jan/19
@viper

Bo edged out Pete Holmes, Michael Carter Williams and Kobe Bryant (comparison with MCW and Jordan Peele), and managed to look taller than 6’6” listed Owen Benjamin.

Bo also looks at least 3.5 inches taller than early 50’s Thomas F. Wilson and 4 inches on TJ Miller.

I don’t think Bo’s under 6’5”.
viper said on 18/Jan/19
No, but Trevor looks physically taller to me by a bit. Especially when he was towering over his teammates at the white house
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 17/Jan/19
@viper

That's just body proportions. It doesn't mean Trevor's taller than Bo.

@Canson

You're fortunate that you never have to tilt your head under a 6'8" doorway. When I get out of bed in the morning and put shoes on, I often tilt because my hair scrapes the doorway, especially when I have thicker hair. I've never actually hit my head on a 6'8" doorway before. I have a few times on shorter ones though, lol.

Another weird comparison with Kobe Bryant and Jordan Peele.

Bo looks taller than Kobe Bryant with Jordan Peele.

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

Bo looks very massive with Jordan Peele at 0:12-0:13 seconds in the video linked bellow. You could also argue that Bo is looking massive with Jordan Peele at 1:47-1:48 seconds, even when Bo is looking down and he's walking. Bo seems to have 1/8ths less footwear, and Jordan has a hair advantage, by a lot.

At 1:47-1:48, Bo's ears looks solidly above the top of Jordan's head. That's also considering Jordan's wig advantage, Bo looking down, Bo walking while Jordan is standing, Bo walking away from the camera, and Bo (possibly or maybe) having 1/8ths less footwear than Jordan.


Click Here


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

Here's Kobe Bryant with Jordan Peele in a picture.

Click Here

Kobe is slouching, but he's look up to the camera. Jordan Peele is standing straight, but he's looking down. The top of Jordan's head look above Kobe's chin, weirdly. Kobe's ears look like they're barely above the top of Jordan's head.

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

Let's go by 1:47-1:48 seconds in Bo and Jordan's video and the picture of Kobe and Jordan.

Comparison, Bo still looks taller than Kobe. My reason is because Kobe's ears just barely come above Jordan's top head, even with Jordan looking down. Bo's ears are comfortably above the top of Jordan's head and giga-thick hair wig. That's also considering Bo looking down, being in walking position, and Bo walking away from the camera.



Either Bo could be argued as high as 6'5.375" or even 6'5.5", or Kobe looks 6'5" at most.
Canson said on 13/Jan/19
@Dream: I never have a problem under a standard doorway even in shoes. I never have to tilt or dip my head under those. But a low doorway I do
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 13/Jan/19
@Dream

Good question. Sometimes I do. My doorway's 6'8", but I have a 1/4" thick carpet under them so really it's more 6'7.75". When I wake up in the morning and wear shoes, I'm typically over 6'7", so at times I duck a little out of habit.
Dream said on 11/Jan/19
@Mickie

Wladimir Klitschko has done a similar thing. He once said ‘I’m only six-foot-five.’ Recently, he claims 6’6”. He’s also listed the same height as Bo Burnham.

Honestly, Bo Burnham is one of the clear cut strong 6’5” people here. He’s looked well over 6’5” with MCW (and looked taller than Kobe, by comparison), pulled looked taller than Owen Benjamin (surprisingly so), edged out Pete Holmes with lousy posture and possibly 1/8ths less footwear, and pulled looking 6’5.5”-6’5.75” at times with TJ Miller and Thomas F. Wilson.


@Christian and @Canson

Question: whenever you two walk under doorways, do you two always have to ‘mind’ your heads kind off like this? — Click Here (Very old video of Bo Burnham. Look at 0:53 seconds where he does duck a little bit under a doorway.)

There’s Not much of an argument for him being less than the listed height

It's interesting he's claimed 6'6" and 6'5" "flat". 6'5" flat is so specific. But then he's claiming an inch taller? Weird.

@Junior

I definitely think 6'5.5" is very arguable for Bo, at times.

I just think 6'3.25" is an absolute joke that should be put into a comedy, just to prove how false it is. LOL!
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 9/Jan/19
@Dream Thomas F.Wilson was at least 6'2 now when Rob meet him but still listed him as 6'2 1/2 and look back the Zach Stone clip in 2013 Bo had Thomas by an easy 3.5", i would have give Bo a full 197cm no way under 6'5 1/2 more towards 6'5 3/4. 6'5 1/4 here is still under listed. Pete Holmes could be a bit of weak 6'5 and Bo does look an inch taller. I honestly think about 197.5cm for Both Owen Benjamin and Bo and Pete 195cm.
Dream said on 8/Jan/19
@Canson Not to mentioned MCW (while a morning measurement) was measured at 6’4.75” without shoes. It’s a morning measurement, but it’s a measurement regardless. 6’4.5” would be better because he would be more in line with your height but yeah, Bo’s clearly taller than MCW. Going by comparison, Bo looks taller than Kobe, especially with Bo’s leaning.

6’3.25” is an absolute joke that should go into a comedy. 6’5.25” or 6’5.375” is arguable for Bo, in my book.
Canson said on 6/Jan/19
@TrevorM: Bo is clearly still taller than MCW. That amounts to about an inch difference once footwear etc are addressed. MCW is around my height or maybe mm or so taller
Dream said on 6/Jan/19
Also, about your statement that Bo doesn’t look very tall:

Click Here

0:00-0:04 seconds, in the video, would beg to differ, especially by the very large doorway.
Dream said on 6/Jan/19
@Trevor M

6’3.25” is a joke for Bo.

Bo is actually leaning and Michael Carter Williams is standing straight. Yes, we can’t see the footwear, but I doubt Michael and Bo would be taking a picture up close on difference floor levels. Also, Bo is tilting his head and he still looks a good inch taller than Michael. Plus, Bo tends to wear very light footwear, occasionally.

Meanwhile, Bo looks taller than 6’6” Owen Benjamin.

Click Here

Yet, Bo looks at least 3-4 inches taller than Thomas F. Wilson, who Rob has met and confirmed 6’2”-6’2.5”.

Click Here

If you don’t believe me, then see how Clive Mantle (formerly 6’5.5”) and Gene Hackman.

Click Here

Similar difference.

Honestly, I doubt Bo would be under 6’5”, let alone the 6’3.25” you guessed him at.
Canson said on 4/Jan/19
@Dream: could be a little bit of both for Bo. Maybe a shoe claim or could be a strong 6’5” who rounds up which we would both agree he is a strong 6’5”. I’m just surprised he does that being as how he said he would do anything to be 6’1/ 6’2. You would think that 6’5 is good enough unless he really did measure 6’5.5 or higher maybe earlier in the day before
Dream(5'9.5") said on 4/Jan/19
@Canson @Rob

I think for Bo, him claiming 6'5" and 6'6" usually means he's likely measured somewhere between the marks. The 6'6" claim (I linked) was 5 years ago. Recently, Bo claims 6'5".

It's like Wladimir Klitschko, who also claims 6'5" and 6'6". Unlike Wladimir, Bo recently rounds down and Wladimir recently rounds up.

Honestly, 6'5" and 6'6" are surprisingly consistent claims. At least Bo doesn't claim 6'7" like Brock O'Hurn or even Owen Benjamin.

I still would need to see more of Bo Burnham. I'm thinking about meeting him at an event, one of these days.
Canson said on 3/Jan/19
@Dream: no offense taken!
Dream(5'9.5") said on 2/Jan/19
@Canson I agree. Kobe does look 1.5 inches taller than Conan.

Not to be slightly rude, but would it be fine if we take this discussion to Conan or Kobe’s page? I didn’t want to go off-topic for Bo Burnham here.

As for Bo Burnham, all of us agree that he’s an easy 6’5”er, just like Metta World Peace.
Canson said on 2/Jan/19
@Dream: 6’6” is probably a shoe height or maybe he’s referring to the 6’5.5 or weak 6’6” he would measure in the early hours of the day. To answer your question I do agree with Rob. I think if he stands straight he would be 6’5.25 bare minimum. Easy uncontested 6’6 imho out of bed if not slightly over. I know Christian says he loses 3/4” or so out of bed to evening or 2cm. I’m kinda in that boat an inch shorter but usually for me it’s maybe 2-2.1 if I hit the gym or 1.9 other days. It’s surprising tho because Bo says he wishes he were shorter. 6’6” isn’t really a desireable height either. If that were me and I hit 6’5.25 I would claim for sure only 6’5” just like claiming 6’4 falling to the same. But at least here I did claim 6’4.5 because I didn’t measure at a low and do on occasion still. Lol 6’6” is just too much imho
Canson said on 2/Jan/19
@Dream: I would have said 3.5-4 with Kobe. He looks 1.5” shorter imho

I think 6ft 5 would have to be really a looser measurement. If he stood tall 6ft 5.25 or .5 is arguable.
Canson-6'4 3/8 said on 25/Dec/18
@Junior: doubt it’s an inch maybe 2cm between them. Holmes likely is a weak 6’5”
Dream(5'9.5") said on 25/Dec/18
@Canson True. I would say Kobe looks a full 3 cm taller than Conan. However, they look a lot closer than one would think. I saw the video myself, and it wasn't less than 2.3 cm, but not 4 cm because of the top of their heads.

Now for Bo, when I first heard of him, I thought "Eh? I think the fan base is just exaggerating his height and tallness.' Later, when I saw videos and pictures of Bo Burnham edging out Pete Holmes, Michael Carter Williams, Kobe Bryant, Owen Benjamin, making TJ Miller look really small, making Thomas F. Wilson look really small, and dwarfing Robbie Amell, I thought 'Holy Fooking S#$tE, so there weren't exaggerating on Bo Burnham.'

What's even more ironic is that Bo did state that he was formerly afraid of heights, yet he became one of the tallest 6'5"ers (like Christian, Howard Stern, and Wladimir) around.
Canson said on 24/Dec/18
@Dream: Kobe looks taller with Conan than barkley would as well. Barkley didn’t look more than maybe an inch taller than Conan in one pic. But I concede at their peaks it’s lilely 2.5-3cm or a full 3. As for Conan there are times that he can pull off 6’4” but I think he generally gives a taller impression because of the lanky build he has and his long hair. He has very good posture as well. I agree with Mickie and say he’s probably 6’3.25 at a low (may hit 6’4” out of bed). I’d probably only have him by a full inch maximum
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 24/Dec/18
Nothing change the fact that Bo is an inch taller than Pete Holmes (Bo posture a bit loose). Pete stay 6'5 in this site here so Bo is 6'6. Benjamin Owen the more i look at him really doesn't look to be a guy could easily edge out Bo.
Canson said on 24/Dec/18
@Dream: lol Bo I’m sure wishes he were only 6’2.5. He said before he would do anything to be 6’1 or 6’2”. Hes one of the clearest cut strong 6’5” on the site
Canson said on 24/Dec/18
@Dream and 184guy: I doubt Kobe has 2” on him. But 1.5” looks about right. Kobe is favored in a clip where it looks 2” tho. I could buy anywhere around 3.5-4cm difference between them. If anything the minimal difference would be 3-3.5 based on Mickie’s encounter with Conan but all signs point to 3.5-4
Dream said on 23/Dec/18
@184guy2

if you want to use your linked video as the gospel ( Click Here ) let’s analyze it.

Conan walks in. Actually, Pete still looks taller than Conan, if you want to talk about eye level and top of their heads. Also, Pete has a visible ‘footwear disadvantage’ (I didn’t mistype that). Conan happens to be in favor of the camera for ‘most’ of the video. At the end of the video, Pete’s eyelevel and top head is higher, and Conan raised a lot to make himself look closer, yet he still looks shorter.


Now, let’s look at the next video I linked and analyze it — Click Here

At the end of the second video, Pete is clearly and visibly taller than Conan. How much? Over 1 inch for sure, but not exactly a ‘solid’ 2 inches. Whenever I mention nearly 2 inches, I mean like ‘1.5”-1.75” inches. So yeah, nearly 2 inches (1.5-1.75” inches). Also, Conan jumped ‘just’ to make himself ‘look’ taller. @Canson even said that Conan did the same thing with David Hasselhoff.

@Mickie has met Conan and did say they were the same height.
Dream said on 23/Dec/18
@184guy2

Yes, I exaggerated about the 2 inch difference. However, it really looks at least 1.5 inch difference to 2 inch difference, not exactly 2 inches but nearly. It’s more than one inch for sure. What was trying to say is that Pete is visibly taller than Conan.

Yet, you call the difference between Conan and Zachary Levi 5 cms, when it was a lot closer than it looks. Considering Zachary’s footwear disadvantage, the difference would be closer than it looks.

You also happen to think Manganiello is taller than Tom Hopper (with one comparison with that guy), but going by comparisons ‘with’ Rob, Hopper actually looks comfortably taller. Considering Manganiello’s footwear advantage, Hopper still looks taller. Finally, Rob is a more reliable source than that guy, especially when Rob measured himself. He made sure he was solid on his measurement.

We’ll agree to disagree, but I see one thing and you see another.
184guy2 said on 22/Dec/18

Dream(5'9.5") said on 6/Dec/18
@Junior I agree that Kobe was likely moving in that picture and Kobe would edge out MCW. However, Bo was leaning onto MCW and he still looked taller than MCW and Kobe. Kobe can look a good 6'5". Bo can certainly look 6'5.5" or even 6'5.75" at times.

I'd say the comparison works because of the following reasons:

1. Bo and Kobe weren't standing at their best.
2. Kobe Bryant and MCW were measured athleles, even if MCW was a morning measurement. it's a lot better than just guessing from ghost listings.
3. I agree that Kobe will be taller than Michael Carter Williams. All I'm really saying is that Bo (even while leaning) still looks taller than Kobe, standing with Michael Carter Williams.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 6/Dec/18
@Dream The picture of Kobe with MCW was bad for comparison when we see Kobe head turn down looking on the right side and he is moving but MCW right side of body was closer to camera angle which gain a little advantages. I believe Kobe is at least strong 1/2 on him when we can see how 6'5 listed Michael Jordan was like 1/4 lower than Kobe. Bo i honestly can throw a full 197cm to him while he look to be an inch on MCW who was measure 6'4 3/4 in the morning.

Most people were only 1/2 inch taller than usual low on a Good day. If Bo say 6'6 on good day. Probably he is 6'5 1/2 low or straight to say 197cm. I'm not going to argue he is taller than Benjamin Owen, very hard to tell they both might be ending up for a better comparison to be the same height both weak 6'6 dudes. The 6'5 1/4 may not be enough to fit him yet just like Howard Stern. Honestly Stern still look like a 6'5 1/2 guy now although 10 out of 10 times he will keep saying 6'5. Bo have been honest of 6'5 knowing he is little over so claim for a latest at 6'6. I'm not surprised if Rob measured him in the morning at 6'6 on the dot.

Me too. I didn’t think Burnham would ‘look’ taller than Benjamin. I couldn’t believe it. It’s very similar to how Svenson ‘sometimes’ edged out 6’6” Walker.

Even if Owen was just 6’5.375” max, it just shows that Bo looks an easy 6’5.25” guy.

It would be very interesting to see Bo Burnham with a peak Peyton Manning, JJ Watt, or even Calvin Harris.

Not gonna lie: this picture took a ‘LOOONNG’ time to find it!
Canson said on 2/Nov/18
@JDubbz: I agree. I actually would say flat 196 would be absolute max but prefer our height over that. Christian is still ok where he is as he’s low to mid 196 (about 1 full inch taller than I am) He is 198 out of bed but loses it to where he’s still 6’6” or a hair more in shoes (6’7 prob in thick boots). But over 6’7 in shoes is a lot and 197 at a low puts you near 6’7” and over it in the AM in shoes. That’s pushing it In terms of footwear as well as you are limited in what you can wear to keep from being near the top of a doorway especially if it’s a low one like 6’7 or 6’6”. I think 6’3 is perfect for very tall but for me I would actually call maybe cm to half inch less than I am today perfect. maybe 6’3.8-.9 at a low to where I’m still solid 6’4ish but to where I’m closer to a flat 6’4 for the morning hours as well. but where we are right now isn’t bad I’ll say.

@Dream I agree, I'm about 194cm and the tallest I'd ever want to be (at a low) is Christian's height (196-197) or 197 at most. 198cm+ at night is getting too extreme. Even 194cm feels too tall sometimes, I think I'd rather be 191cm.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 31/Oct/18
@alabamafr I agree with what you and @Canson said.

6'5" range isn't bad. At least it's a lot better than the 'taller heights.'

Now, 6'6" or 6'7' at a low? Yeah, that's where the trouble comes in. Any taller, and life is difficult.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 29/Oct/18
Bo does look over 6’5” with Thomas F Wilson, who has met and confirmed 6’2” range. (0:19 - 0:20 seconds when Bo stands up straight.)

Click Here

Considering Burnham’s imperfect neck posture, He’d actually look near 6’5.5”.
Greatman said on 25/Oct/18
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.
Canson said on 21/Oct/18
@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.

You showed the quotes and I provided the pictures! It was a great teamwork!

@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 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 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

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.

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?

@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

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

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

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

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.

Rob, silly question, but do you plan on trying to see him in person?
Editor Rob
I wouldn't be able to afford it!

Rob, this is an interesting comparison.

Here's 5'10.5"-5'11" listed Anthony Padilla with Shane Dawson.

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.

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"

This guy would be taller than the 'entire Skarsgard' family!

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.

6 foot 5 is his legit height
