America’s Funnyman Neil Hamburger takes the stage the last Sunday of (almost) every month at the Satellite, heading a bill jam-packed with legitimate comedy legends and oddball up-and-comers. DO NOT MISS Los Angeles’ most adventurous night of variety entertainment!
Neil Hamburger has toured internationally as a nightclub headliner and as the special guest of Tenacious D, Tim & Eric, and Faith No More. His TV credits include Red Eye, Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Tom Green Live, and Jimmy Kimmel Live. Neil’s 2012 LP, Live At Third Man, was produced by Jack White in Nashville; an earlier Hamburger effort was included in SPIN’s “40 Greatest Comedy Albums Of All Time.” In July 2014, Drag City will release a new album, First of Dismay, partially recorded live at The Satellite.
“Hamburger is the clapped-out husk of a decorous Southern gentleman, now coughing in painful hacks, suppurating filth through his tuxedo, and her to tip a slurry of abuse all over celebrity and modern life…a combination of malignance and desiccated vaudeville.” (The Guardian)
“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
“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 audiences’ expectations (and patience), and indeed his act is a kind of rude commentary on stand-up comedy altogether.” – New York Times
“He is the funniest and most infuriating stand-up comic alive.” – Jack Black
