About Exurb1a

Attempting to decipher our chaotic universe, British writer, musician, and YouTube creator Exurb1a resorts to “philosophy, theoretical physics, and dick jokes.” With over 17M views of videos spanning “The Universe in 4 Minutes” (spoiler alert: “Nothing means anything and we’re all going to die…”) to “How Casual Sex Should Work,”—it should be robotically straightforward—Exurb1a revels in the absurdity of creation, constantly mocking our mere existence, not to mention how we have used our time on Earth. The jaded auteur even released his first book of short stories this year, The Bridge to Lucy Dunne, trying to convey, as he always does, that “an existential meltdown is a perfectly appropriate response to being alive.”
