How tall is Bo Burnham

Bo Burnham's Height

6ft 5 ½ (196.9 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!"

Off-Topic: How much do you think this guy would have on Logan Paul or even Jake Paul? LOL!
Editor Rob
he'd be looking almost at Logan's hair (top of)

@Rob

Maybe not in real life but he could be a Joker or Pennywise!
Hyper said on 12/Jul/21
@Rob

Do you think he could be more of an imposing figure, if he worked out, or if he had more anger?

Click Here

Around 4:10, he does raise his voice and it can be intimidating! It also adds to him seeming bigger than he is.
Editor Rob
sometimes how you hold yourself, your voice, mannerisms could leave another 'inch of impression' in people's minds.

Bo certainly isn't a menacing type guy, more laid back and likeable from what I've seen.
Hyper said on 9/Jul/21
@Canson

I have a feeling Bo just doesn’t like being tall, in general. Even with Greg Davies, Nicholas Braun, and Owen Benjamin, he’s a bloody sloucher. Sometimes, his posture is worse than Idris Elba.

However, even then, he always has a very tall look to him. When he stands decent, he can be an imposing figure, at times.
Canson said on 8/Jul/21
@Hyper: Bo is an interesting case. He’s taller than I initially thought. I wonder if he really did only measure 6’5 before when he said 6’5 flat in the quote above. I wonder if that was when he was younger and if he grew a fraction. I thought 6’5 a long time ago but I’d say easily 6’5 and change. Maybe he slouched when he was measured lol. He’s said before that 6’5/6’6 was too tall and you can start to pass for 6’5 1/2” at 6’5.25 in thr afternoon from an honest persons perspective. Put it all together and you have something different.
Hyper said on 6/Jul/21
@Rob

Agreed. Idris Elba claimed ‘six feet’ and it’s also a generalization. Blake Harrison has said the same thing.

Though to be frank, Bo’s claim of six foot is lowest I’ve ever seen! Clearly, he looks taller than Kobe Bryant and Tim Robbins does with Conan O’Brien. (I’m only talking about the recent gif of Bo and Conan, where Bo was wearing converse sneakers.) He even towered Thomas F. Wilson, who you have met!

@Rob

This is interesting. I don't think he was being serious, but he did claim to be 'six foot,' here. -- Click Here

eah just a generalised description...

although you'd rarely hear a 5ft 5-6 guy saying 'five foot'

I wasn’t sure if the GIF was going to work or others needed to log in to see the clip.
Robbe said on 3/Jun/21
There is zero chance Bo is the same height as 6'6 Gronk. I can buy 6'5.5 for Bo, but that's the max he get's on a good day. Conan is 6'3.5, and Bo is not 2.5in taller than Conan. No way. More like 1.5/2in, at best.

No offence Hyper, but why do you keep posting that same video clip/pics over and over again? I think we have seen them already..
Hyper said on 3/Jun/21
@185vietnamese

He is at least 6’5.5” with Thomas F. Wilson, who Rob has met and confirmed 6’2.25”, today. — Click Here

Not to mention, he’s taller than Michael Carter Williams who was measured at 6’4.75” without shoes and 6’5.75” with shoes.

The highest i could go for Bo is this listing. If any higher, it should come from a tape measure!
185vietnamese said on 2/Jun/21
No way Bo is 6’6. If Bo is 6’6, Owen should be at least 6’6,5, Braun should be 6’7,5. It’s even hard to judge a person height from a close back to back picture with perfect camera angle, left alone these video which the camera is 10 feet away which whatever angle did we know and two people standing far away from eachother with different posture.
Hyper said on 2/Jun/21
@viper

I’m seriously surprised you said that. I know you mention Tim Robbins being at least 6’5”, but what made you think Bo could give a 6’5.75”-6’6” impression?

Not that I disagree but it surprised me.

The recent (somewhat old) clip with Conan surprised me. I’ve never seen a converse-sneaker man, tower Conan. Granted Bo is closer to the camera and the angle is tricky to pin-point. However, Bo is wearing converse sneakers and he still somehow gives off a much taller impression.

He wasn’t lying when he said he is taller than Conan.

Bo can give off a 6-5.75-6-6 impression

One thing is for a moment he could look near 5 inches on Andy Richter

Rob, here’s another clip of Bo and Conan — Click Here

Bo is closer to the camera but he’s wearing converse sneakers and He’s a lot bigger than Conan.

Heck, he gives a slightly taller impression Kobe Bryant, with Conan. (Both closer to the camera than Conan). — Click Here

And Bo has less footwear. Is 6’5 3/4”, arguable? He looks massive, in that above clip.

Bo unintentionally look 6'6 with MCW and look 6'6 with Pete Holmes and look 6'6 with Thomas F. Wilson and look nowhere over 2" shorter than 6'8 Greg Davies and look 6'6 with Conan O'brien. Why can't he be 6'6? Lol.. Its in the front of our sighting looking for enough prove everywhere.
Hyper said on 19/May/21
185vietnamese

Bo is definitely taller than Pete. Sometimes, it looks one inch at least, between them.
185vietnamese said on 18/May/21
I still keep my opinion from the start. Both Bo Burnham and Pete Holmes are taller than Conan and Pete Holmes and Bo Burnham should be similar in height. If there's any different, it shouldn't be more than 1-2cm. Pete get a 6'5 and Bo get this listing.
Hyper said on 16/May/21
@184guy2

I wouldn’t put Bo under this listing, to be honest. I know you disagree with me. However, Pete is more than clearly taller than Conan and Bo is clearly taller than Pete. Bo was also slouching a lot with Conan, yet the top of his head is well higher than Conan and he had less footwear.

It goes many ways. Overall, he does look 6’5.5”, at least.

Bo also holds his own with Greg Davies, who’s clearly taller than Rob Gronk and Stephen Merchant. Not to mention Greg is taller than Richard Osman, who most agree could be 6’7 1/4”.

Gronk looks clearly taller than Bo , Using Conan and Vince Vaughn as comparison

If you think Gronk is 6'5.75 ( there is no evidence of it ) , than bo is at very most a solid 6'5 , maybe even a flat 6'5

And here’s the recent picture of Bo and Pete Holmes. — Click Here

Conan and Pete. (Conan jumped in this clip at around 6:27, indicating Pete is clearly taller. I don’t think it was self-aware, but the fact that Conan jumped and he barely looks taller, easily suggests Pete is taller.)— Click Here

@Robbe

Here’s Bo with Thomas F. Wilson — Click Here

And Rob has met Thomas F. Wilson. Hard to argue anything as low as 6’5” flat, considering Bo’s posture is still terrible with Wilson.
Robbe said on 11/May/21
Hyper seems to be a huge Bo fan. Pity there aren't any good pics where Bo is standing straight with somebody who's height is known. With MCV he is indeed slouching, and still appears 6'6.5.

Click Here

Bo's head is 10.5in there, and MCW's 9.5in. Bo has a big head, but i doubt it's quite that big, so he is closer to the camera, so he is favored there.

Also, comparisons with Gregg Davis/Vince Vaughn/Lebron James are pretty useless due to terrible angles. I would really like to see Bo standing tall with Vaughn/Gronk, with good angle. Here Gronk next to Vaughn, looks 2in difference to me.

Click Here

I still have hard time believeing Bo is only 0.5in shorter than Gronk, but you never know. Judging heights from pictures can be tricky as we all know. And like said, Bo slouches very often. But i think it's pretty safe to say he is not under 6'5 at lowest.
Hyper said on 7/May/21
And considering MCW was reportedly measured at 6’4.75” (early measurement) and Kobe measured at 6’4.75”, it’s not any guesswork.
Hyper said on 5/May/21
Omg, This is bloody last time, I talk about this. Sorry Rob.

I think this guy would out measure Kobe. I noticed that Bo is slouching with MCW and he's still well taller. -- Click Here

Here, I think Kobe will edge out MCW, slightly. Both are at their lows, because they're both on the court. -- Click Here

However, in this picture, It's very likely that MCW was more on his feet than Kobe. Kobe is farther away from the Camera, but he's not down to his extreme low, compared to MCW. -- Click Here

This topic is getting old! However, what do you think, overall.
Editor Rob
He does look near 6ft 6 with MCW there

184guy2

Here's Vince Vaughn with Lebron James. (It's the only picture where Vaughn stands straight with Lebron.) -- Click Here

It's hard to argue as low as 6'4" range there.

Also, Owen is more relaxed with Vaughn. Owen is forcing his posture with Bo. (It's obvious, looking at the way Owen is tilting himself up.)
184guy2 said on 27/Apr/21
Lol Vince is like 2 foot behind Owen and far from the camera.
To be fair Vince can look 6'5ish in that pic if Owen is 6'6 and is odd because he has recently looked a strong 6'4 at most

Vincent Caleb said on 14/Apr/21
I have always said Gronk is around 6’6”, but I could see a little under before over considering he has measured 6’6”. Bo isn’t max 6’5.5” to me more like a solid 6’5.5”. I thought Braun would be about 6’6” and change or maybe Rob’s listing.
Canson said on 12/Apr/21
@Hyper: you are correct. He always has terrible posture. He has thicker shoes in this pic and still doesn’t give off nearly as tall an impression as other guys like Anthony Joshua or Kevin Durand who are only listed 1/4” taller. I guess taller is not always better as he does not like his height. To be fair, I wouldn’t want to be 6’5.5” either if he really is though. Honestly I would not want to be above my current height or preferably a 1/4 or CM less to where I can get 6’4 flat at lunchtime or at best afternoon height.

Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 12/Apr/21
I did say Bo had some hidden height might be measure taller than lower. He doesn't look over 2" below Greg Davies.
Canson said on 11/Apr/21
I bet he dips under 1/2” at night or afternoon. Hence why he’s claimed 6’6 and 5. Maybe Christian’s height
Canson said on 10/Apr/21
Gronk got a morning measurement so not sure he’s as tall as Braun
Hyper said on 9/Apr/21
His posture is horrendous and generally he wears light footwear, even with Greg Davies.
184guy2 said on 8/Apr/21
Would love to see Gronk footwear with Conan
Canson said on 8/Apr/21
@Robbe: I think it’s his posture. Bo has horrendous posture. I wonder if he really just doesn’t like being tall. To be honest, I don’t even know if Gronk is a solid 6’6” being his 6’6.25 was a morning measurement but he may still make it at an afternoon height. He wouldn’t be any taller though and I could conceivably see 6’5.75 or 6’5 7/8”. Bo on the other hand is Max 6’5.5”. He could even be shorter than that
184guy2 said on 7/Apr/21
Also Rob can look close to Braun height , both probably 6'6 and change
Tall Sam said on 6/Apr/21
Burnham is holding rather inferior posture compared to Gronkowski, he could look rather taller standing well.
Robbe said on 6/Apr/21
For some reason 6'6 Gronkowski gives much taller impression than Bo does, when both men standing next to Conan. Here Bo with Conan, just before screen faids out.

@Canson, do you really think Bo is only 0.5in shorter than Gronk?
Canson said on 5/Apr/21
@184guy: most think he’s taller than listed because of how he stood with guys like Benjamin or Cromwell etc. Bo if he’s 6’5.5” is just that imho. In reality, he could be something like what Christian is too.
Hyper said on 5/Apr/21
184guy2

Most of the video, he’s very shy in his posture. Even when he looked down, the back of his head is still higher than Conan’s top head.
184guy2 said on 5/Apr/21
Why would Bo use and plataform beside and guy taller ??? He isnt someone who gives much importance to Height , despite being very tall
184guy2 said on 5/Apr/21
@Chris
You are blind if you think that is 4cm , let alone 5cm. I suggest you to take a rule or tape and see what a difference of 4-5cm is . It's a visible amount . Put the video in 0.25x speed and go to the last frame where Bo posture is the best in the entire video . Even considering the 0.3in footwear disvantage , Bo doesnt look over 2" taller than conan. If so Conan would be looking at the tip.of Bo's nose . 6'4 and 6'5.5 are cool listings . 6'3.5 Conan putd Bo 100% at 6'5 flat
184guy2 said on 5/Apr/21
I love how ALL the users here are biased towards Bo and Critics to Conan listing.
I'm ok with Conan downgrade , as long we downgrade Jared Padalecki to 6'3.25 , Zachary Levi and Chris Hemsworth to 6'2.5 , Nicholas Braun to 6'6 , Bo Burnham to 6'5 , The Rock ( 2004 ) to 6'2 and the listing goes on and on. Also Chuck to a mere 6'4
recapa said on 2/Apr/21
bo ,rick fox and metta are all guys who i think that would measure around the same all weak 6ft5.5 guys (196.5-197cm).
Canson said on 27/Mar/21
@Hyper: Bird looks like he’s lost height today too so even at that height he towers
Canson said on 27/Mar/21
@Duhon: they’ll prob get him as close as possible. Michael Jace played Michael Jordan and I remember in that movie, he was taller than the guy that played Scottie Pippen. Then again Jace is only an inch shorter than Jordan
Hyper said on 25/Mar/21
@Duhon

It will be interesting for him to meet the real Larry Bird though.

@Canson

It wasn’t easy, but we got him to his listing!
Duhon said on 25/Mar/21
He's just been cast to play 6'9" Larry Bird in an upcoming TV series. Bo's very tall compared to most actors but I wonder if they will have him wear lifts or platforms?
Canson said on 24/Mar/21
@Hyper: yea you and I got him pushed to 6’5.25” at first. I mentioned how he came out with 6’6 on a good day and you showed the pics. He isn’t shorter than that and the more I see maybe 6’5.5” or just under it. At lunchtime he probably is 6’5.5 or even over by a touch.

@Junior: I’d say at least 3/8 I agree and he would easily have around 2” on Conan if he stood straight. See Howard Stern or Klitschko with Conan and he looks sub 6’4” with both. He inflated Klitschko too when he was on his show. Bo certainly isn’t any shorter than either guy

He was the first 6’5 1/8” person here, before the comparisons with MCW and Kobe Bryant, James Cromwell and Nicholas Braun.
Vincent Caleb said on 22/Mar/21
Easy 6’5.5” to me. The only reason the average guess is slightly below is because he used to be listed shorter. If he was always this listing, I bet the average guess wouldn’t be too far off 6’6”. I don’t think he is a full 6’6” though.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 22/Mar/21
@Canson 3/8-1/2" less footwear Bo still comfortably look 4cm on Conan.
Hyper said on 22/Mar/21
@Canson

Not to mention posture disadvantage for Bo as well. Combined all that, yet Bo is still taller than Conan.
Canson said on 21/Mar/21
@Editor Rob: if this doesn’t constitute a downgrade to 6’3.5” for Conan, then I don’t know what else does. Footwear disadvantage and Bo is still taller. Conan is also shorter than a peak Neeson or Hasselhoff

196.5-197cm range for me.

Hyper,

All because Bo is 6'6. Nicholas Braun 6'7.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 10/Mar/21
Bo look at least 1.5" on Conan. Bo footwear look typical flat style like converse chucks 5/8 inch and Conan standard 1.1". Bo should deserved 6'6 listing because Conan stay 6'4.
Hyper said on 9/Mar/21
@Rob

Even then, Bo keeps dropping a lot of posture like ‘bloody blazes!’ He looks really uncomfortable being tall, back then. It’s like Idris Elba or Clive Russell.

Honestly, he did look taller than Conan even with the worst posture in existence.

And accounting Bo dropping the worst posture in existence and less footwear, yet when he goes up a bit, he is clearly taller than Conan. He’s clearly hiding a lot of height. — Click Here

In the video with Greg Davies, Bo’s posture was so terrible, it was shockingly worst than Idris Elba. That was back in 2010.

Anthony Joshua and a young Greg Davies at 4:40 — Click Here


Looking at the top of their heads, Bo and Anthony look close. I am surprise Bo wasn’t height-conscious with Greg Davies and that Bo has less footwear.

And Rob has met AJ, in person and the latter is visibly taller than Klitschko.

Burnham would definitely beat out Klitschko and possibly Rick Fox, since Rob has met AJ and Rick Fox and stated AJ did look taller with a footwear advantage.

@Rob,

I don’t think is a reliable source, but I can make some comparisons.

Here’s Owen Benjamin with Vince Vaughn. — Click Here

Here’s Kane with Vince Vaughn. — Click Here

Owen is closer to the camera but top of their heads, Owen does look taller. I wouldn’t go under 6’5.75” for Benjamin. Owen is surprisingly relaxed with Vince Vaughn.
————————————
Here’s Bo and Owen. The latter is forcing his posture a lot more than he does with Vince Vaughn. It’s obvious by his eye level and his ear level. — Click Here

Kane is currently 6’6” for sure, in person, without a doubt. He has looked taller than Undertaker, Dennis Rodman, and maybe Lebron James.

Based on these, I don’t have doubts that Burnham is easily over 6’5”.

Then again, @Vincent Caleb could provide more ground than myself, since he met Pete Holmes.
Vincent Caleb said on 19/Jan/21
@Chris Junior:
I actually agree. Bo had an inch on him, no less. I won’t go under 6’5.5” for Bo because I know Pete is definitely not under 6’4.5”.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 17/Jan/21
Nothing changes a fact out there that Bo was strong 1" on Pete and Rob still think Pete is honest 6'5.
recapa said on 8/Jan/21
@Vincent and Canson ,good guesses from both of you .i have bo around that height range too 196.5-197cm too 198.5-199 out of bed.
Canson said on 2/Jan/21
@Vincent: yea I’d say he loses 3/4” like you me or Christian. Maybe a full 2cm is the most I could see. I have him around Christian’s height or maybe minimally but not noticeably taller. Maybe 198-199 range out of bed and 196-197 range in the afternoon
Vincent Caleb said on 1/Jan/21
This mark is fine for Bo, no need to change it. I don’t think Bo loses a full inch. Whether he is slightly above or below is debatable, but this is good. I would actually say that a good range would be:
6’5 3/8 as a lowest argument
6’5 3/4 as a highest argument
6’6” is too high
Canson said on 29/Dec/20
@Hyper and Editor Rob: I just can’t see him as 6’6” Or near 6’6”. But yes I do see a very strong case for 6’5.25-.5 range. Maybe he’s 196.5-196.7 range but just can’t see him as a weak 6’6. That’s where I have someone like Anthony Joshua, Ralf Moeller, etc. and I definitely get a taller impression with guys like Spencer Wilding Bruce Spence or Even Paul Pierce who can look a weak 6’6 with Carmelo Anthony. But My def of weak 6’6 is someone who’s close to 6’6 for the entire day (6’5.5-.75 range) and then measures 6’6 in the first hour of the morning. That would out his aggregate height at maybe 197 flat or higher in the afternoon and make him around 199 out of bed which is hard to see for him. At that stage we’re talking about a guy who essentially measures 6’6 flat into the 2nd hour Whereas I consider someone Christian’s size to be a strong 6’5”. That’s kind of the height I have Bo at now a days would be maybe within a mm or two of Christian. I think Bo can give off a taller impression due to his lanky build but at the same time I see the argument for him being taller than he claims esp with his poor posture at times. Not to mention this is a guy who has admitted to wishing he were shorter than he is.
recapa said on 28/Dec/20
yeah,the listing works just fine but i wouldnt go above it personallily.
Hyper said on 28/Dec/20
Rob, from all you’ve seen, what would be the lowest and highest you would argue for Bo?
Editor Rob
at the moment I think probably I would say the mark he's at might be the low, almost 6ft 6 a possible highest
Canson said on 27/Dec/20
@Junior and Recapa: it could be 7/8” between them too. Pete’s fright is a wild card. He may be 6’4 3/8 or 6’4.5”. I’ll go with the latter. As for Bo, 6’5 3/8 could be possible. 6’5.5 would then be a lunchtime
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 25/Dec/20
@recapa

My worst ever low was always 197.2-.3cm nothing change a bit. If you think he drop a fraction below 197cm then Pete Holmes isn't a single mm over 194cm or even worst at 6'4 1/4 (193.7) because Bo look to have a very strong 1" on Pete.
Hyper said on 25/Dec/20
@recapa there are times where Bo has looked 6’6” with Pete Holmes and Thomas F. Wilson and Robbie Amell. (The second and third that met Rob in person.) Though Bo has looked less but he still looked over 6’5” for sure.

The listing is perfect, if we’re going by middle ground. It would be nice if Rob could one day meet the guy, though he said it’s unlikely.
Jkiller said on 24/Dec/20
6'5.25 (196cm) is correct.
recapa said on 24/Dec/20
@Junior,i dunno man i can totaly see the listing but at the same time i dunno if he is your height .you mentioned that you never fall under 197cm . bo i think he falls under it sometimes like 196.5cm or something byt hey anything can be possible.

Rob, I apologize. There's another picture with Bo and Kevin Smith, where you can see more of Bo's posture. I'm not sure if it still counts as slouching, but it's here. -- Click Here

Who looks taller in comparison? Accounting for posture and footwear of course!

@Hyper:
I agree. Lowest I would go is 6’5 3/8”, the highest maybe 6’5 5/8”.
Hyper said on 14/Dec/20
@Vincent Caleb

Truthfully, I think that’s just a bed time height. He gives a taller impression than Rory McCann.
Vincent Caleb said on 13/Dec/20
6’5 3/8” is a possible figure but no less.
Hyper said on 9/Dec/20
@Canson

Someone like Andrew Garfield’s Height. 6’5.5” is just too much.

Bo would be a perfect Joker though. Joker is supposedly 6’5” in the comics, he’s lanky, and he jokes. Bo has though qualities except that Bo is taller than the Joker and he has a dark sense of humor.

they've went under 6ft three times. I'm not sure the movie producers would ever want a 6ft 5 spider-man towering over everybody, however stranger things might happen in the future.

the comic always seemed to have him within average range, I think that suits the character.

Rob, I remember someone randomly commented that Bo should be a spider-man and I laughed at the idea of a 6’5”-6’6” spider man!

@Hyper: yea but I doubt a current Cromwell is still 6’6” and he can slouch a lot. However, I don’t rule out a hair over 6’6 for Braun
Hyper said on 29/Nov/20
@Canson

Another thing is Nicholas is taller than a current James Cromwell, so he definitely could measure 6’6.5” at a low.
Canson said on 28/Nov/20
@Hyper: I have to also wonder if Braun measures that at a low. He was listed 6’6 and he was compared to Conan who is also overlisted by half inch and given an extra half himself. One thing is for sure. Bo isn’t more than 5.5 and could be in the 5.25-.5 range still

With Michael Carter Williams he looked this listing. No need to change anything, Rob has gotten this listing down accurately. I guess 6’5 3/4” is possible, but this is really the best listing at the moment.

197cm for bo
Canson said on 30/Oct/20
@Vincent: that’s the most I could buy for him. Perhaps if he’s that at a low he could be 199 out of bed
Vincent Caleb said on 29/Oct/20
@Canson: I actually think this listing is perfect 6-6.25 out of bed, 6-5 5/8 lunch, 6-5.5 afternoon. He gives off a slightly taller impression than a peak Hogan.
Hyper said on 28/Oct/20
@Canson

One thing is certain. Bo’s definitely over 6’5”.

@Junior

I can see 6'5 5/8" for Bo at times. Aren't you that height at a low?
Canson said on 27/Oct/20
@Junior: I’d go with a fraction under before a fraction over esp being he claimed 6’5” numerous times. I’d say maybe 6’5.25-.5 range afternoon height before 6’5.5-.75
Vincent Caleb said on 27/Oct/20
@Chris Junior Hernandez:
I would also say he has a higher chance of being closer to 6-6 than 6-5. He can look a lot taller than the listing at times, but the listing is still pretty good even if it is on the low side.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 27/Oct/20
Fraction over 197cm isn't impossible for Bo indicate a low. I still strongly sees him under listed. 6'5 3/4 wasn't a problem. Greg Davies is no way over 2" on Bo. I'm tire of bringing up 5'10 1/2 Josh Hamilton case standing next to Bo, the 19cm wasn't a lie or pushing. Josh is probably close to 5'10 1/4 a low i can see him a strong 5'10 and Bo is def higher chance to be 6'5 3/4.

Interesting find here at 0:17 seconds and 2:07 seconds. (Don't mind the weirdness. It's very strange.) --- Click Here

This was before he became big. 0:17 seconds, he's not visibly far off from the ceiling and he's barefoot.

Around 2:07 seconds, he's also slightly ducking under another tall doorway. He's still barefoot throughout the video and this was at night.

At around 0:04 seconds, he's a lot taller when he wears sneakers. His sneakers are visible at 0:06 -- Click Here

@185vietnamese

I know he will be shorter than Blake Griffin. However, comparing them with Pete Holmes, Bo doesn’t look much shorter than Griffin. Blake is standing on higher ground and possibly has bigger shoes.

Bo is further away from the camera and Pete is likely standing on higher ground, given that the largo theaters are structured like that in all of these pictures.
Hyper said on 9/Oct/20
185vietnamese

I don’t know about 6’4”. Bo’s clearly taller than Michael Carter Williams, who measured 6’4.75” without shoes and 6’5.75” with shoes. Granted it a morning measurement, but that’s more than just 6’4”.
185vietnamese said on 8/Oct/20
@Hyper
Bo will be obvious shorter than Blake Griffin since he's already look noticale an inch shorter than Nicholas Braun. Offc Bo is very tall at 6'5 1/2. Even if he's just 6'4, it's still in a very tall height, just look at Alexander Skargard, he's obviously very tall and anyone said he's very tall, they're not exaggerated at all.

That's him with Robbie Amell. There are other clips, but they have one of them slouching. I know Bo has a hat on, but the height difference is way visible.

Another thing too is MCW did measure 6’4.75” without shoes and 6’5.75” with shoes, even if both aren’t low measurements. The fact that Bo (even while slouching), looks comfortably taller than MCW, does suggest that 6’5” is a bit too low.
Hyper said on 30/Sep/20
@Rob

Do you sometimes see fans (mainly fangirls) say to their idol that 'they're tall, like 6'0"+' but in reality, they're not that tall? (Example: One Direction.)

Bo is kinda the opposite. I see why his fans say he's tall and they're not exaggerating that he's tall.
Editor Rob
Sometimes they simply might not have been that aware of how tall somebody was, so it can catch a fan out (taller or shorter).

Or even in some cases like Bo, if he said 6ft 5 a few times in the past then they see him looking taller than that, it might prompt that kind of 'wow so tall' reply.

But people can be defensive and as big fans of certain celebs, won't hear a bad word or 'downgrade' given to them.

@FriedChicken

I seriously doubt he falls to 6'5" flat, even at night.

In the clip, MCW looked similar to Bryant, but Kobe would just edge him out. Bo looks more comfortably taller than MCW than Kobe does. (I'm going by the clip of MCW and Kobe. The pictures can be deceiving. Bo and MCW only had one picture together and Bo does look comfortably taller, seeing how his left eyebrow is reaching the headline of MCW.)

Also, Bo did look taller than an old James Cromwell, with Nicholas Braun. (For reference an Old James Cromwell is well taller than Tim Robbin.)

Also, a slouching Bo towered Thomas F. Wilson, as a 6'5.5" guy should. Rob has also met Thomas F. Wilson too and confirmed Wilson is no less than 6'2".

Sorry to ask! I didn’t want the upgrades to be based on ‘one’ picture or source , by bias or anything!

the more you can see of celebs, sometimes the more you agree with your estimate, but other times you think - it could be a bit low or high.
Dream said on 3/Sep/20
Rob, we discussed this before, but I wanted to make sure the upgrade isn’t a pretense, from falsely viewing the pictures.

The initial upgrade from 6’5” to 6’5 1/4” was based on the comparison with him and Kobe Bryant. Then, I think it was with Bo and James Cromwell was when 6’5 1/2” seemed more possible. Bo was also the first 6’5 1/8” guy before the comparison with Kobe Bryant.

Looking back at it now, do you think he would edge out Kobe, based on the ‘overall’ comparison and sources we have?

I think from all I've seen the odds are that he clears 6ft 5 comfortably enough to warrant 5.5

You can't really deny that he is one of taller comedian at least. He did claim noth 6ft 5 and 6ft 6 respectively, but 6ft 5 quarter is pretty legit for this dude.

Didn't see the upgrade to 6ft5 1/2. Seems reasonable.

Rob, if Bo stood next to a 6ft 1/2 person. Would their head be more likely above or below Bo's eye level?

Dream said on 9/Jul/20
@Rob

Yeah. Even with that picture with Michael Carter Williams and comparison with Kobe Bryant, he still slouches!

At the same time, I think it's a refresher. it's kinda a good indicator that he's over 6'5" and he doesn't have to brag too much about it. He usually wears light footwear, unlike someone like Wladimir Klitschko.

I recall in an interview, where Bo claimed 6'6" (one of them, Canson linked), he did say back then, he had terrible posture (The footage with Greg Davies is certainly solid proof of such). Recently, Bo said he started working on his posture. (The recent picture of him and Pete Holmes, did show a significant difference.)
Dream said on 7/Jul/20

it's funny because Bo didn't look height conscious, next to Greg Davies. Compared to Armie Hammer, who stood a bolt with Stephen Merchant (Merchant looked significantly shorter than Greg Davies, in this picture -- Click Here).

@Dream: I think this preseason there were inconsistencies with both time and accuracy. Lebron at 6’8.5” for crying out loud. But then Anthony Davis at 6’9.75” he looked that at a low. I feel that he was 6’8.75 the first time as he acknowledged that Durant was taller then so maybe it was a morning height 6’9.25 when he was drafted. Then Dwight Howard obviously looks a morning height as he looks around 6’9” or a hair over
Dream said on 25/May/20
I haven’t met Bo, but I can make some bizarre comparisons with him and a few people.

Owen is slouching more with Vince Vaughn and he’s more visibly taller than Vince Vaughn. — Click Here

Here’s Vince Vaughn and Kane — Click Here

Here’s Lebron James with Vince Vaughn. — Click Here



Bo looks at least an inch taller than Vince Vaughn, with Owen Benjamin. Owen (with camera advantage) looks a little taller than Kane and Lebron James, with Vince Vaughn. Kane is a lot bigger in person, than he looks in pictures. Lebron James is a big guy too.

I definitely agree with this listing for sure.

So far, the NBA has been inconsistent, with afternoon/night Heights. It’s probably that way, ever since.
Dream said on 23/May/20
Rob, do you think he could potentially edge out Rory Mccann, by a few mm's?

There is a chance, but you might need to measure those guys to find out who would be taller by mm's.
Canson said on 21/May/20
@Junior: I agree with that assessment
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 20/May/20
Rory Mccann had no chance to be looking over 6'5 next to Bo. I still think Bo can measure 6'6 at least in the morning not accounted out of bed and for sure again he will be 2" edging out Conan O'brien for sure.
Dream said on 19/May/20
I'd expect Bo to look at least an inch taller than Ryan McPartlin, based on how he stacks up with MCW and Kobe Bryant.
Matt6'5 said on 13/May/20
Rob,

Would you put a true "big inch" between Bo and Ryan McPartlin?
Editor Rob
You might expect around that difference.
Dream said on 14/Apr/20
@Rob

I feel his large head might be similar in size to Rory Mccann. You have guys like Ralf Moeller and Wladimir Klitschko, who have broad proportions. Ralf is more hulking. Wladimir is not too different from Ralf, but Ralf is bigger. Rory has a heavy build.

With someone like Bo, he's lanky, slim, and narrow, for someone his size. His head size doesn't make him look tall, proportion wise.

I would also say that Bo has a long neck too, which adds to his extremely tall stature.
Editor Rob
Well it is likely over 10 inches to chin
Dream said on 12/Apr/20
Rob, would you say, this guy has the oddest proportions for a 6’5”+ guy, or would you say he still has the proportions of being extremely tall?
Editor Rob
His head size can effect his proportions a bit, but his body frame might counter that effect a little bit.
I'm sure many who seen photos/videos of him and then met him - like he says - are a bit surprised how tall he looked up close.
Dream said on 29/Mar/20
@Canson huh! That’s very interesting! I’ll have to check it out myself.

@Junior actually, I also think you’re right about Bo having at least 3 cms on MCW. Even while slouching, Bo’s eyebrows are near MCW’s headline, indicating, it’s at least a solid inch on MCW.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 23/Mar/20
@Dream I would have rule out on metric 194.5cm for MCW a full inch lower than Bo or max 3cm. MCW don't look as low 6'4 1/4 as some says. Jimmy Butler wasn't standing straight and looks a little behind MCW. I did go with a worst 6'5 1/4 for Jimmy not sure if he is 6'5 3/4.
Canson said on 23/Mar/20
@Dream: 1/4” may be fair but almost all pre draft listings I’ve seen line up to 1/2” inch taller than an afternoon measurement. So if we use lunchtime as the standard MCW may be 6’4 3/8”. I know this year he has a 6’5 listing in the NBA. Being they measured in the AM he would’ve likely been listed 6’6 like he was previously had he measured 6’5.25 or so in the AM. I notice most players like Jaylen Brown got a 6’6 listing from a 6’5.25 pre draft and same with Derozan. Both prob got 6’5.5 this year which was a small stretch
Dream said on 20/Mar/20
@Canson

Truthfully, I don't think MCW is that overlisted. I looked at this interesting picture with 6'5" range Jimmy Butler.

Click Here

Their headlines are even, while Bo's low head level is higher than MCW's headline. I think if MCW is overlisted, it's no more than 1/4 of an inch. Otherwise, I think it works. At the same time, I think Bo's listing is more than legitimate. Easily taller than most youtubers who claim 6'5".
Canson said on 18/Mar/20
@Dream: I think it’s safe to say MCW is overlisted if we’re using lunch or afternoon heights
Dream said on 17/Mar/20
@184guy2

Michael Carter has a page here of 6’4.75”.

Truthfully, I don’t think camera advantages aren’t that drastic, since they’re side by side.

I think Bo looks minimum 6’5.5” with MCW and in comparison, taller than Kobe Bryant, especially when Bo is slouching.
Canson said on 17/Mar/20
6’5 for MCW is high. He was 6’4.75 early morning so prob more 6’4.25 or best case 6’4 3/8

Truthfully, the more I look into the clip, the more I think MCW does look a bit taller.

In your opinion, Where does that leave Bo? Because MCW stood much better with Bo, who’s slouches and Bo still looks taller.

Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 8/Mar/20
Great upgrade better than 6'5-6'5 1/4. It shows that Conan and Pete is def close enough half inch over listed.
Canson said on 5/Mar/20
@Dream: Kobe has his head down for most of it but I would probably say he edges MCW out. Kobe is the odd case as he claims the measurement that he received at home from his wife which was more than likely not the typical hour out of bed, give or take, combine measurement. His really looks like an afternoon measurement. But I’ll give you props. Bo is looking more and more like 6’5.5” next to a guy like James Cromwell or Pete Holmes. I’ve looked at the video with Holmes and Burnham and it’s tough to say who has the footwear edge but Junior could be right in that it’s around a 1” difference. Holmes next to 6’0” listed John Mulaney I can see a good 194 to 195cm just like he looked next to Conan and Bo If they are, say, 6’3.5 and 6’5.5.

I thought Nicholas looked maybe a weak inch taller than Bo in those photos, 6'6.25" or a bit more is possible for him (I think he would measure similar to my something between 6'6" and 6'7" brother). For Nicholas, I think 6'7" or over is excessive.
185vietnamese said on 26/Feb/20
Bo just get upgrade to 6’5,5. I think Nicholas should get upgrade to 6,6,75 as well. He really look close to 6’7. When i measure from my hairline to the top of the head. It’s about 3 cm. That should be the case of Bo and Nicholas.

184guy2 said on 21/Feb/20
@Dream @Canson

6'5.5 it's ok and fair , aswell 6'5.25 it's but I don't think he looks 6'6 . 5'10 range guys come over his mustache area . I don't think Bo'd to be any taller than a guy like Metta World Peace. Anyway , he towers over the vast majority of human beings . I bet if he was more jacked he would be much more badass and good looking but he seems to be a guy that doesn't care to such attributes .

@184guy: the other issue is which standard are we using? It is supposedly defined by Rob but it deviates from celeb to celeb. Rob mentioned that it’s supposedly a lunchtime which for most is only about 1/8” above the afternoon height (normal low) and about 5/8” below the out of bed. Yet several of the athletes are listed at their heights probably an hour out of bed. Then a guy like Daniel Cudmore is listed at 6’6.5 but was listed 6’7” even after Rob met him. The 6’6.5 came out of Cudmore’s mouth though. Now for Cudmore, that to me looks like an afternoon height as he looks pretty accurately listed, but Rob also mentioned that he met him earlier in the day and that Cudmore wouldn’t be at his low then. But on the same token, Cudmore may dip to something less himself like 199cm. It’s speculation, of course, but I’m throwing everything out there within the realm of possibility. And that isnt limited to just barefoot heights. There are some celebs here that aren’t close to either standard even at their morning heights. Some are shoe measurements and when Rob meets them he reduces the listing similar to Pamela Anderson when he had her 5’6 now 5’5 after meeting her. But That said, If we are truly going off lunchtime heights across the board and, more specifically for Burnham, this may be ok. Similar in height with Christian 6’5 3/8 where he could be 6’6 1/8 out of bed, 6’5.5 lunchtime, 6’5 3/8 afternoon height. I also don’t completely rule out what you said 6’5.25”. I think the fair assessment is that he for certain isn’t 6’6” barefoot lunchtime or afternoon and he probably falls between 6’5.25-6’5.5 in the afternoon at least. I do think 6’5 flat that he originally was listed (prior to the 6’5 1/4) looked too low especially next to Pete Holmes. That’s an example of a celeb that was probably under listed even though Rob didn’t meet him in person. Now your opinion on Holmes is similar to mine where There are some variables and I can’t say for certain that Bo has a full inch on him. I would throw out the possibility of the footwear for Holmes being in his favor ever so slightly. I have Holmes as 6’4.5 for an afternoon height. I see you had 6’4.75 for yours. But That estimate may be ok for lunchtime though if not his afternoon height.
Canson said on 22/Feb/20
@Dream: if the listing is remaining as is, the following should be:

Bo 6’5.5
Holmes 6’4.5
Conan 6’3.5

I’m not so sure Bo has a full inch on Holmes but since Holmes appears to have about that on Conan I’ll go with the above to keep in line. Conan doesn’t look higher than 192 next to Barkley or Kobe and Holmes 194-195 max next to him
Canson said on 21/Feb/20

Huh. He does claim 6’6”. The interviewer even said Six Foot Five or something, meaning he could be a bit taller.

Yea I meant he claimed 6’6 there so combining both claims I give him 6’5.5 but I wonder if 6’5 is him rounding down half inch. That’s what I really meant. My bad for the confusion. I keyed into something too when he said that 6’6 is too much

@184guy2

I think I’m confident about Bo’s listing as 6’5.5”. He has looked as tall as 6’6” with Pete Holmes and Michael Carter Williams. With a younger Greg Davies, Bo didn’t look shorter than Anthony Joshua. With Nicholas Braun, Bo looked taller than current James Cromwell, and an very old James Cromwell has looked taller than Tim Robbins and Michael Duncan Clarke. I’m comparison, Cromwell looked taller than Howard Stern and Kobe Bryant.

He’s definitely over 6’5”. How much? Half an inch over six foot five is likely.

The picture I sent was edited. My bad.
Canson said on 21/Feb/20
With Braun who I can agree with 184guy isn’t 6’6.5 he as I also don’t even have Conan at 6’4” (6’3.5 looks more like afternoon height), Bo doesn’t look that. There are instances when he can look 6’5.5 id say or maybe 197 and then when he can look 196. I think fair compromise is 196.5

@Rob: maybe 6’5 3/8 like 184guy said. But that may be his afternoon height. He may be 6’5.5 at lunch
184guy2 said on 20/Feb/20
He is clearly shorter than Nicholas Braun and Braun doesn't look 6'6.5 with Conan
6'6 for Bo is Pushing .... 6'5.38 it's ok
Dream said on 20/Feb/20
@Junior

Bo has looked 6’6” at times, but I’m not sure if he’s that tall at night. I think 6’5.5” or 197 cm flat, could be a good start. He really towers everyone and even looks taller than guys like Michael Carter Williams, and in comparison with MCW, taller than Kobe Bryant.
Canson said on 20/Feb/20
@Junior: or he needs to downgrade Holmes which I think is the more reasonable solution. Although I don’t rule out Bo being 6’5.5” too
Dream said on 20/Feb/20
He made Will Ferrell look 5’10”.

Okay, I’m beginning to believe Bo is 6’5.5”. He’s definitely looked over 6’5” and even sometimes 6’6”, at times.

Here’s Kobe with Will Ferrell.

Giving Bo the 6ft 5.5 figure probably is the fairer mark for him. I think from all I've seen, it may well be closer to what he can measure.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 19/Feb/20
Bo need to be listed at 6'6. Not saying it's his low but to be fair enough on Pete Holmes listing by an inch difference between them. This have being repeat a few times maybe Rob did not paid any attention to the clip when Bo and Pete shook hand and hug. That solid inch can't hide anywhere and same flat sneaker they both wear it the show it's too obvious to judge an inch between the duo. 6'4 3/4 Michael Carter Williams is not 1cm shorter than Bo it's a solid 3cm and wee bit between them.
joe ### said on 16/Feb/20
6'5.75 maybe
joe ### said on 16/Feb/20
i'm starting to think that bo burnham is a weak 6'6 he is totally unkempt with nicholas braun and still looks more than 6'5 and james cromwell is at most at 6'5 these days.
Dream said on 16/Feb/20
@Canson

Huh. He does claim 6’6”. The interviewer even said Six Foot Five or something, meaning he could be a bit taller.

Editor Rob
He could be 6ft 5.5 there
Canson said on 9/Feb/20
@Viper and Dream: I think his 6’5 flat is him rounding down like I do from 6’4.25-.3 to 6’4. But I don’t say I’m 6’4 flat. I just say I’m 6’4 and if pressed for Precision and accuracy I’ll claim 6’4.25 since that’s exactly where I end up if I’ve been on my feet some and always if I hit the gym. The .3 is when I do neither and just have a normal day mostly sitting. I would once claim 6’4.5 when I measured it before coming here to this site 4 1/2 years ago. But knowing what I know I always considered myself 6’4 not 6’5” unless I was playing basketball. And it was always shorter guys that negotiate with you to round up to 6’5” or more content and taller guys (mainly my close friends) that always said why do you bother with the half? and I couldn’t do it being I’ve got taller friends who only claim afternoon heights so me claiming 6’5 when I have a 6’5 1/4 friend 1” taller won’t fit and makes it awkward for both of us and the others we hang out with. He played ball too in college and was listed 6’7 from what he told me but has always claimed 6’5. But for Bo I do buy 6’5 flat as his extreme low which if we’re going to discuss that is a fair claim if someone claiming out of bed or early morning and rounding up is fair.
Canson said on 9/Feb/20
If Rob went with lunchtime across the board then he is prob underlisted. I doubt he’s below 6’5.25 afternoon so 6’5 3/8 lunchtime and 6’6 out of bed

I'm re-looking 1:14-1:15 seconds, mainly of slightly clearer view in video. Bo doesn't really look much shorter than Greg. Bo is wearing sneakers in the video and Greg Davies is wearing some big dress shoes. Discount Greg's footwear advantage, and the difference would be closer. -- Click Here


For reference, it's very similar height difference between Anthony Joshua and a younger Greg Davies, at 4:35, here.--

If we're looking at the top of their heads, Bo doesn't look shorter an AJ, honestly. Top of their heads, Bo looks to be a bit taller. Maybe 6'5.5" would be better?

@Canson if Bo was 5’9”, 176 cm, as some dumb website listed him at, Pete would be 5’8” range, LOL!

Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 12/Dec/19
@184guy2
Not really. Even I used to often claim a morning height (6'6") up until around 3 years ago. I stopped doing it because I felt it wasn't honest, knowing that my evening/noon height is 6'5"-6'5.5", and this site is based on noon heights. But I don't think that claiming a morning height is bad, unless you don't inflate others around you to justify doing it.
184guy2 said on 10/Dec/19
@Christian

Do you really think that claiming a non evening height is inflate ??? Personally , I think that any height at any time of the day , barefoot , is a fair claim . Inflate should be claiming a show height or lying
Dream said on 10/Dec/19
@viper I'm honestly surprised you would give Bo that figure, imo!
Canson said on 10/Dec/19
@Viper: I’d lean toward Christian’s height. 6’5.25-.5 range

Yeah, I think he's 6-5.5 from seeing all the evidence
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 6/Dec/19
@Canson
"On a good day" seems to be a popular catchphrase people use when they want to inflate height by a bit. Usually, it means a morning height, or even rounded up from a morning height.
Dream said on 6/Dec/19
@Canson True as well, but I still wouldn't put Bo under 6'5". He's often looked more than his listing, especially with MCW, Kobe Bryant, Owen Benjamin, Vince Vaughn, Greg Davies, and Richard Osman.
Canson said on 5/Dec/19
@Dream: the 6’6 on a good day could also mean that he’s 6’5 1/2 or 3/4 early morning and rounded to 6’6”. Remember Larry bird claimed close to 6’10 on a good day too
Dream said on 5/Dec/19
@Simon L

If an upgrade were to happen, it would be more 6'5.5" or possibly 197 cm flat (which is still 6'5.55", at least). It's arguable for sure. I argue Bo's closer to 6'5.5" than 6'5" flat, since Bo already claimed he was 6'6" on a good day, and everyone's usually taller by half an inch, on a good day.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Dec/19
Likely Conan’s a bit under 6ft4

Why hasn't bo been upgraded yet?? He looks taller than this listing in every image/video I've ever seen of him.
Dream said on 4/Dec/19
Rob, I don't think this is important, but in the video that he claimed 6'5" flat, at a low, Bo said he was taller than Conan O'Brien.
Editor Rob
I think he's comfortably taller, more than an inch

At the absolute least, he’d destroy many 6’5” claiming youtubers, like Faze Banks and Bigdawstv, for sure.

@Junior: no way half inch. If anything he’ll get 6’5.5 but no higher. I bet he’s less than that at a low tho
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 2/Dec/19
I'm not surprise a half inch upgrade for Bo will still happen in future only when Rob stumble a chance to meet him close up in person. There are always a chance of a smaller amount of celebrities get under listed between 1/4 to 3/4 wouldn't surprise me. Most were listed 1/4-1/2 too high.
Canson said on 14/Nov/19
@Cmillz: something like 5 1/3 or 5 3/8 agreed.

I think he has an honest chance of clearing 6ft 6 out of bed, the question is whether it is by a tiny or large fraction.

That makes sense. a strong 6'6" out of bed, for sure, I would also say.

Dream said on 12/Nov/19
@Junior

I can see 6'5.5" for Bo, at times. 197 cm flat can seem arguable. I just can't see over 6'6", at a low, but in the morning, I can see Bo being a solid 6'6".

The 6'5" flat seemed like an extremely loose measurement. Bo also claimed 6'5" and 6'6" on a good day, and on a good day, people are usually a half inch taller than they are.

Bo already looked taller than Kobe Bryant, with Michael Carter Williams, especially when Kobe and MCW are measured athletes. Yes, MCW was a combine measurement, but it's still a measurement regardless.

Bo didn't look much different from Blake Griffin, with Pete Holmes.

Finally, Bo and Owen, look rather similar. Bo is leaning a bit and Owen is forcing himself to look taller. In comparison, Bo is definitely taller than Vince Vaughn. Owen is slouching with Vince Vaughn while he's standing with very good posture with Bo.

Click Here

If anything, I think Bo and Owen are arguably 6'5.5" or 197 cm flat. Neither would be taller than the other, give or take a few mm's or so.

Edit* Overall, I fail to see Bo at 6'5" flat and I definitely see the chances of 6'5.5", more than 6'5" flat.
Dream said on 12/Nov/19
@Junior

I can see 6'5.5" for Bo, at times. 197 cm flat can seem arguable. I just can't see over 6'6", at a low, but I can see Bo being a solid 6'6", in the morning.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 6/Nov/19
@Dream Only two possiblity of Pete and Bo. One is Pete is 6'4 1/2 and Bo 6'5 1/2 another is Bo latest claim of 6'6 and Pete is really 6'5. Anyway Bo have been messing around with 6'5 flat to 6'6 max. We wouldn't know which one is the truth for a low, but it looks pretty obvious he had a NBA combine 6'4 3/4 MCW by 3cm so 6'6 was def an early morning height for Bo. I don't buy him came below 197cm. He might be my height too.
Dream said on 31/Oct/19
@viper It's possible, really. I do see 6'5.5" for Bo, more than likely.

@184guy2 I can see that mark for Pete, but look at him with Shaquille O'Neal -- Click Here

I think Pete is definitely tip-toeing, but he definitely isn't as low as 6'4" flat.

Quinton Aaron at 6'6 is very harsh . He looked at least 4 inches taller than Kevin Sorbo , who Rob met and thought he was in the solid 6'3 range . The lowest you could argue to him is 6'7 . The problem is that he doesn't have a good posture and is overweight .
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 24/Oct/19
Meanwhile Aaron Quinton, Lindsey Kay Hayward and Trevor Moore height is ridiculously over listed. Those three were like 6'6 a low, 6'6 1/4 a low and 6'4 1/2 while Bo Burnham is still 1/4 under listed for a lowest zone listing.

I think around 1:16 seconds here — Click Here

There’s another view of them standing, but it’s so zoomed out, the camera shakes, not to mention the camera constantly moves in shake camera motion, and so many objects block their heads too.

In the video, Bo is wearing light sneakers while Greg is wearing dress shoes, so Greg does have the footwear advantage.
184guy2 said on 19/Oct/19
Not a very good angle to judge but he looks very tall with bad posture beside a 6'8 guy also with bad posture it's a shame that we don't have a full video of the occasion
Dream said on 16/Oct/19
@Junior

Here's a better reference of Bo Burnham and Greg Davies, together, standing.

Click Here

The top of their heads aren't that far apart. Their ear levels are close, closer than what I would've thought. Again, in the video, Greg has some big dress shoes while Bo was just in light sneakers that were close to converse sneakers.

Knock away Greg's noticeable footwear advantage and they would look closer.

From how Burnham stacks with Davies, he would look only one inch apart from Richard Osman, in pictures.

I definitely see 6'5.5" for Bo, similar to peak Ralf Moeller's size.
Dream said on 10/Oct/19
@Junior

There is a somewhat good view of Bo and Greg, standing, at 1:16 seconds.

Click Here

The top of their heads are rather close. Bo is looking down and Greg is looking up, but the back of Bo’s head, not including his hair, is well above Greg’s eyebrows. Their ‘ear levels’ are quite close too. Bo also is just wearing light sneakers while Greg is wearing some big dress shoes that kinda looks like boots.

Even then, Bo didn’t really look much shorter than Greg. Only 1-2 inches, especially when you take account Bo’s worser posture and Bo having a footwear disadvantage.

Take our Greg’s footwear advantage and straighten them out, and they would look way closer than they are.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 9/Oct/19
I hope there is a clear vision comparison of Greg Davies standing next to Bo. Not surprise if there will be only 2.25" between them.
Dream said on 6/Oct/19
@Rob

I agree it's difficult to tell from the clip.

Going by the top of their heads, They look kinda close. The back of Bo's head, not including his hair, is above Greg's eyebrows, despite having really bad posture and less footwear, back then. Bo is also looking down, while Greg is looking up.

Their ear levels are also quite close too, looking more carefully. Much closer than I would've expected. If we discount Greg's footwear advantage out and straighten Bo and Greg out, they would look closer.


Look at Richard Osman and Greg Davies, together. -- Click Here


It's clear that their ear levels and top of their heads are close, but that's to be expected from some who are strong 6'7" and solid 6'8".

I'm not saying Bo would be as tall as Richard Osman, which I seriously doubt. However, looking more into the clip, I definitely do see at least 6'5.5" range, if not a bit more, with Greg Davies. Greg was also younger, in his 40's.
Dream said on 3/Oct/19
Rob! I found something!

Here’s a clear view of Bo and Greg Davies, at 1:17 seconds, standing. They’re both slouching, but Greg has ‘more’ footwear than Bo.

Weirdly, Bo looks not much shorter than Greg, despite having less footwear than Davies.

Do you think 6’5.5” is possible for Bo?

Actually, I would say Bo has a good inch on Pete.— Click Here


Notice there’s a carpet on the same room. — Click Here

In the pic with Bo and Pete, Pete was standing on a carpet, on slightly higher ground, thus I think 6’5.5” is likely for Bo, now.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 24/Sep/19
@Dream Owen Benjamin is really closer to camera like you say and look 1/4 over Bo. That is why i keep wonder they're just the level in measurement if one of them is 6'6 then the other one the same and if the odd 6'5.5" then both were same. Click Here again 0:32-0:33 Bo top of head look struggle 4cm taller than Pete but Bo's head is little closer to camera but it isn't below 2cm between them as we can say 1". If Pete comfortably stay 6'5 then Bo is at least 6'5.75" for a justice listing but a small problem could be Pete being a weak 6'5 guy like 195cm but not as low as some guessing 6'4-6'4 5/8 which i disagree the more i look at Pete. Bo is every chance a guy holding 197-197.5cm and Owen might be just a guy not below 6'5 3/4 when stand straight. In real life those honest height claimer often think i'm 6'6 and i'm a weak 6'6 at 197.2cm a low and people inflating height thought i'm 6'7 when relate to how Bo could easily look 6'6 which majority he could my range. 6'5 1/4 listing is really too low for Bo and most listing were really listed 1/4 too high.
Dream said on 23/Sep/19
@185

I think 6’5.5” as well. He did look taller than Michael Carter Williams and by comparison with MCW, he looked taller than Kobe Bryant and Jimmy Butler.

The only times Bo does wear dress shoes or some footwear are something like he has to go to an event that requires him to look nice. Other than that, he’s not a lift wearer, unlike Wladimir Klitschko, who sometimes tends to wear lifts or big footwear.
185 said on 21/Sep/19
The picture with Owen Benjamin is much believable now, i think they both have good posture, though it seem that Owen have a better posture and egde Bo by half to nearly an inch, not sure about the footwear so maybe that Bo could have less footwear cause i rarely see Bo wearing dress shoes. I think that he could look close or could be 6’5,5” but definitely not 6’6.
