The comedy legend that is Bo Burnham has graced our screens since his YouTube debut in 2006. Since then, he’s turned his hand to Vine, live comedy, and most recently Netflix, with his hit comedy special Bo Burnham: Inside.
The hugely successful Massachusetts native has kept his private life pretty private for most of his life, but that doesn’t mean we don’t occasionally get a glimpse behind the scenes.
The burning question most commonly asked is, “Does Bo Burnham have a girlfriend/wife?” The answer is yes, and she has just as much of an impressive career as the man himself. Burnham has been in a committed relationship with film director and actor Lorene Scafaria since 2013. The two share a home in Los Angeles with their dog, Bruce.
So, beyond dating worldwide phenomenon Bo Burnham and owning an adorable pup, who exactly is Lorene Scafaria? Continue reading as we give the deets on Bo’s special someone.

You may know her for her work on Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist (2008), for writing and directing Seeking a Friend for the End of the World (2012), and her work on the critically-acclaimed, Hustlers (2019).
Scafaria began dating Burnham in 2013, and the two have been inseparable ever since. In fact, in his 2021 Netflix special Bo Burnham: Inside, the special ends with the message “for Lor, for everything” (during the end credits), as he dedicates the special to his beloved!
But, what about any past lovers? Does Burnham have the ‘typical’ Hollywood love life? The answer might surprise you.
Bo Burnham Ex-girlfriend History
The truth is that Bo Burnham does not have much of a dramatic love life at all! Sorry to disappoint!
Burnham and girlfriend Lorene Scafaria have shared an atypically perfect Hollywood relationship. The two have been together for nearly a decade and have managed to keep their coupling successfully private. Beyond supporting each other publicly and being by each other’s side at work events, red carpets, etc, the two seem to lead relatively normal and happy lives together away from the public eye.
Now, we can hear you say, “but wait, I’m sure I’ve heard Bo Burnham talk about a bad ex-girlfriend!” Well, you’re not wrong!
Burnham famously said during one of his live comedy acts: “My ex-girlfriend had a really weird fetish. She used to like to dress up as herself and then act like a f*****g b***h all the time.”
Now, while he may very well be talking about a lousy ex-girlfriend, unfortunately, it’s anybody’s guess. Either he is such the gentleman that he never named her publicly, or she simply doesn’t exist. Who knows?
At the end of the day, beyond Scafaria, Bo Burnham doesn’t seem to have had eyes for anyone else (except maybe Bruce, of course).
