You could call Neil Hamburger a modern-day Tony Clifton, an anti-comic, or you can call him by his preferred designation, “America’s Funnyman.” The bafflingly awful comedian takes the stage with two or three cocktails tucked under his arm, combover plastered to his skull and bulging eyes magnified by Coke-bottle glasses, then proceeds to accost his audience with jokes that are more puzzling than funny. The alter ego of frequent Tim & Eric collaborator Gregg Turkington, Neil Hamburger is a terrifically weird experiment in performance art, hilarious in its mere concept. Don’t worry if you have no idea what the hell is going on at this show — that’s just part of the fun.
