For over 20 years, ‘America’s Funnyman’ Neil Hamburger has worked every imaginable stage,
from New York’s Madison Square Garden and the UK’s Reading Festival, to a Hollywood
cemetery, Tasmanian pubs, and an abandoned monkey cage in a decrepit Catskills zoo.
He has performed countless headlining American, Australian, British, and Canadian tours, as
well as shows in Norway, New Zealand, Ireland, and the Bahamas. He has toured
internationally as the cherry-picked opening act for Tenacious D and Faith No More.
Neil Hamburger was the subject of the critically acclaimed dramatic 2015 feature
film Entertainment, co-starring John C. Reilly, Tye Sheridan, and Michael Cera. Neil’s many TV
credits include Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Tom Green Live, and Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Among his dozen album releases is Live at Third Man, produced by Jack White in Nashville; an
earlier Hamburger effort was included in SPIN’s ‘40 Greatest Comedy Albums of All
Time’. His latest LP, the chamber-pop epic Still Dwelling, features guest appearances from Jack
Black and Mike Patton.
“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.”—NEW YORK TIMES
