Product Description

Second DVD from America's - now the World's - Funnyman, Neil Hamburger. His pacing is off, and he clears his throat nonstop through his entire routine, which is all part of the ultimate goal: To be the world's "worst" stand-up comedian. Neil's unique brand of comedy has thrilled, perplexed and repulsed audiences from Norwalk to Malaysia to the Jimmy Kimmel show.

Amazon.com

In his second DVD release (see also Live at Phoenix Greyhound Park), The World's Funnyman, Neil Hamburger, clearly has a larger following in Australia, where these performances were taped, than he does in America. In Los Angeles, small, dingy nightclubs host Hamburger, the nervous, nerdy comedian who clumsily delivers one-liners about rock musicians ranging from Britney Spears to Madonna to Michael Jackson to Courtney Love and Kurt Cobain. But The World's Funnyman boasts footage of Hamburger cracking jokes at a huge music festival, and footage of his main act reveals a near-stadium-sized Sydney club packed with fans. This DVD contains two "concerts," a short, fictionalized performance in which Hamburger takes on a Malaysian crowd, some music video clips, and a Canadian documentary analyzing Hamburger's genius. Hamburger, part Jerry Lewis, and part Andy Kaufman, has a fiercely commanding stage presence despite his cultivated meek demeanor, making his talent apparent. Sometimes funny, sometimes too weird for words, Neil Hamburger is definitely a character. The World's Funnyman, released by the eternally cool Drag City, captures his poetic intricacies on film. --Trinie Dalton

He's very handsome on the tv! The effects are breathtaking! The dialouge snaps crackles and pops! ("Wait till they get a load of me!") And the secret bonus video game makes the Playstation look like the GAYstation!

Neil Hamburger is the best thing to come along since Andy Kaufman. He really knows how to work a crowd like an ocean. It really comes in waves, he takes you to depths you weren't thinking were possible and then renews himself with a real Zinger. This Guy is all Class. He can also be seen on Tom Green's website doing poolside chats.

Buy this disc if you want to laugh so hard that your lower intestine rips loose and you crash through the glass table onto your face and lie amongst the cracker crumbs on the rug ... drooling.

Someone said humor is tragedy plus time, but Hamburger is tragedy plus phlegm (and always heroically funny)

Please come to Richmond, VA. Neil, we need more maccaccas.

and rerelease the Zip Code Rapist stuff.
