About Bo Guthrie

I was born in Minnesota. I moved a lot and ended up in Alabama. Once there, I realized that I didn't want a regular job, so I decided that I would do comedy. I'm now in Atlanta figuring out how to get famous. I doubt it will work, but I'm enjoying the process thoroughly.


  1. This is great, Bo. I gave up making movies when I came to england for grad school and sometimes have second thoughts about it. I hope it works out for you man.

  2. Von Maidenberg says:

    I dodged the 9 to 5 myself – it made me miserable – and I’ve always felt less of myself because it did. There is something that feels very manly about slaving away for no real reason or reward, as if it “builds character” in and of itself.

  3. Follow your bliss. Writing also pays for shit, but it doesn’t stop me from wanting to do it well.

  4. “At what point does persistence become delusional? ”

    You just gave this self-perceived quitter a .357 Magnum revolver to ward-off the pushy beautiful people in my life.

    God luv-yah Bo! Sorry I didn’t get you anything bud!
