Neil Hamburger returns to Milwaukee for an epic One Night Only show with special guests and lots of funny. See him live at Club Garibaldi on Saturday, May 13, 2017! This show will sell out, seating is limited.
America’s Funnyman Neil Hamburger is the hard-est working comedian in existence, performing up to 399 shows a year internationally to critical acclaim and audience bewilderment. He has toured as the hand-picked opener for Tenacious D, Tim & Eric, and Faith No More, appeared on TV shows ranging from Fox News’ Red Eye to Tim and Eric Awesome Show Great Job! and Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and worked extensively with Tom Green on his internet talk show. Among his dozen or so albums and DVDs is the new LP release Hot February Night.
“A phlegm- lled sack of putrid self-loathing, Neil Hamburger is the perfect satire of a slick, profes- sional nightclub comedian. If you’ve ever suspected that behind the glossy veneer of fake bonhomie of those perma-smile acts lies an ugly, embittered, grotesque soul — well Hamburger is that demon made esh. In some living Sisyphean hell, every night he dons his tuxedo, greases down his hair and ploughs through the vile set that disgusts even him, just so he can earn a three-piece chicken din- ner. His contempt for his own pitiful existence is surpassed only for his contempt for the audience who compel him trudge through his despicable cavalcade of jokes. And my, these gags are certainly not for the faint of heart, as he plumbs the depths of depravity for the sake of a laugh.” — Chortle (UK)
“Hamburger is the clapped-out husk of a decorous Southern gentleman, now coughing in painful hacks, suppurating lth through his tuxedo, and her to tip a slurry of abuse all over celebrity and modern life…a combination of malignance and desiccated vaudeville.” — T he Guardian (UK)
“Neil Hamburger remains the greatest comedian I’ve seen the greater majority of an audience walk out on…. No one was leaving their seats this evening though, as this peerless performer shocked and delighted in equal measure…. On the road for 12 years with scarcely a day off, Hamburger is a condemned showbiz lag, doomed to perform his antagonistic anti-comedy to potential hostility forever.” — The Scotsman (UK)
“A brilliantly awful persona of an old-school, C-list funnyman — the kind with an ill- tting 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.” — New York Times
