Neil Hamburger
Neil Hamburger
“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)

America’s Funnyman Neil Hamburger is the hardest working comedian in existence, performing up to 399 shows a year to critical acclaim and audience bewilderment. He has toured as the hand-picked opener for Tenacious D and Faith No More, appeared on TV shows ranging from Fox News’ “Red Eye” to Tim and Eric Awesome Show 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.

I sing, I dance, I cry, I laugh. All at the same time. This website took a really long time to make because of all of the things.

I do good old fashioned standup comedy. In fact, I have a comedy album. You can buy it in this link or by clicking on the photo to the right. If you’re in Toronto, you can find me every month at Laugh Sabbath and Laughable at Unlovable. I also sing in the band Wrong Hole. In the interim, I write for children’s television(?!) and act, most recently in Diamond Tongues. All photos on this page are by Davida Nemeroff.

Now that we have that out of the way, take a minute to reflect on how great Peter Cushing was in Star Wars Episode 1. He truly embodied “the banality of evil”.

She delivers her droll, multicultural perspective on anything from biscuits to relationships, delighting audiences in Denver, Atlanta, Greenville, and all over the Southeast.

David Cross
David Cross
Emmy Award winner and Grammy Award nominee David Cross is an inventive performer, writer, and producer on stage and screens both big and small.

Named one of the Top 100 Stand-Up Comedians of All Time by Comedy Central, Cross last toured the world with “Make America Great Again!,” which took him across the United States, Canada, and Europe. The tour spawned a Netflix special which premiered in August 2016, and a Grammy-nominated CD of the same name. The set, which discussed then-Presidential candidate Donald Trump, gun control laws, and religion, was the comedian’s first standup tour in nearly six years. He had last toured in 2009 with a solo stand-up show in support of his New York Times Bestseller, I Drink for a Reason. That hugely successful comedy show was filmed at Boston's Wilbur Theater for a special, entitled “Bigger and Blackerer,” which premiered on EPIX in April 2010 before being released on CD and DVD by Sub Pop. His previous comedy special, "David Cross: The Pride is Back," aired on HBO in 1999, and was named one of the 25 best stand-up comedy specials and concert films of all time by ROLLING STONE in July 2015.

Cross has released two other comedy albums – the Grammy Award- nominated, “Shut Up You Fucking Baby” and “It's Not Funny.” In 2003 he released the DVD, "Let America Laugh," a documentary film of his groundbreaking stand up tour of alternative, indie rock clubs.

He recently wrapped production on “Bliss,” a new comedy for Sky in the UK. Serving as writer and director, Cross’s “Bliss” stars Stephen Mangan as a man who must find a way to balance his two separate families.

Cross is currently in production on the Pentagon Papers film “The Papers,” helmed by Stephen Spielberg and co-starring Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep.

Last year, IFC premiered the long-awaited third season of the comedy “Todd Margaret,” created by and starring Cross as an ill-equipped American who finds himself running the London sales office of the energy drink company for which he works. IFC aired six episodes over the span of two weeks. The original iteration, “The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret,” aired on IFC from 2010 to 2012.

Cross reteamed with his “Mr. Show” collaborator and co-creator, Bob Odenkirk, to create “Mr. Show with Bob and David,” a four-episode revamp of the iconic sketch comedy series, which premiered November 2015 on Netflix.

In September 2013, David Cross and Bob Odenkirk released the book, Hollywood Said No! Orphaned Film Scripts, Bastard Scenes, and Abandoned Darlings from the Creators of Mr. Show. Written with friend and fellow “Mr. Show” alum Brian Posehn, “Hollywood Said No!” is a collection of never-before-seen scripts, orphaned sketch ideas and reminiscences. In support of the book, Cross and Odenkirk embarked on a multi-city tour, performing their first official stand-up comedy shows together since their sold-out national tour in 2002.

In 2014, Cross released the indie film Hits, which he wrote and directed. A black comedy about the nature of fame in the YouTube era, the film is set in a small town in upstate New York and stars Matt Walsh and Meredith Hagner. It first premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, and then helped raise funds for its theatrical distribution via a successful Kickstarter campaign. In addition to a traditional theatrical release, the film was also available to fans across the nation on BitTorrent, where they were able to pay what they wanted to view it.

On the big screen, Cross has appeared in the independent features, Kill Your Darlings alongside Daniel Radcliffe and Michael C. Hall, and the dramedy It's a Disaster, opposite Julia Stiles and America Ferrera. Other film credits include Abel, Year One, Christopher Guest’s Waiting for Guffman, Men in Black and Men in Black II, Ghost World, Michel Gondry’s Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Pitch Perfect 2, I’m Not There, and provided his vocal talents for several animated films, including Megamind, the Kung Fu Panda series and Curious George.

On television, Cross reprised his beloved role as Dr. Tobias Fünke' on the fourth season of “Arrested Development” on Netflix, which will begin filming its long-awaited fifth season this summer. During its original critically acclaimed, Emmy Award-winning run on FOX, Cross was twice-nominated as part of the ensemble cast for a Screen Actors Guild Award. He will next be seen in the third season of Netflix’s “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” reprising his guest arc as lawyer Russ Snyder.

Cross’s introduction to the TV scene came with "The Ben Stiller Show," where Cross honed his comedy writing skills and shared a 1993 Emmy Award for Outstanding Achievement in Writing in a Variety or Music Program.

The original “Mr. Show with Bob and David” received three Emmy Award nominations for both Writing and Music & Lyrics. Cross also served as a writer and contributor for “Tenacious D.” He also wrote, produced and starred in the Comedy Central animated series "Freak Show," which he co-created with H. Jon Benjamin.

Cross currently resides in Brooklyn, New York.
