(6.13) And now for something completely different, the comedic stylings of Neil Hamburger. He’s opened for Tenacious D, Tim & Eric, and Faith No More. His TV credits include Fox News’ Red Eye, Tim and Eric Awesome Show, and Jimmy Kimmel Live, and his most recent album “Live At Third Man” was produced by Jack White in Nashville. From the New York Times,
A brilliantly awful persona of an old-school, C-list funnyman—the kind with an ill-fitting tuxedo and an enormous, greasy combover—on a very bad night. Neil Hamburger toys with an audience’s expectations (and patience), and indeed his act is a kind of rude commentary on stand-up comedy altogether.
This show is an ‘Editor’s Pick’ in The Phoenix; they cite Reggie Watts as a big fan, adding “Hamburger (Gregg Turkington in “real life”) excels in the comedy of discomfort. Dig into his greasy, disjointed weirdness . . . .” Duncan Trussell opens.
