Comedy. Hamburger’s schtick is to be funny by being un-funny. His delivery is self-deprecating and stuffy, but his subject matter is always eyebrow-raising hilarity. Live, he wears a soggy tux and pretents to be drinking about 5 vodkas, like the ghost of Dean Martin stuffed with pharmaceuticals. But the crowds (locally at least) are in on the joke and Hamburger packs places like the Hemlock and gets himself thrown offstage at the Warfield when he takes unsuspecting audiences by surprise. This CD is a very obtuse release where he spoofs a “historical documentary” about a central valley pizzaria where he has his “climb to fame”. Most of it is unfunny, really. But theres a few highlighted tracks where he unloads what we love him most for.

1) Mick Jagger, Madonna, Robin Williams ripping
2) first part off the pizza place story
3) a take on a news roundup, more on the pizza place, dipresa’s gambling
4) silly 60’s references
5) Janis Joplin, the best Paris Hilton Joke EVER, jokes end about 1 minute though
6) funny stuff about AA, pizza
7) about neil, being on jimmy kimmel with yoko ono, uh huh, yoko jokes, Neil doing karaoke, wet t-shirts, a faux black comedian doing stupid “white vs black” jokes
8) neil gets critiqued, divorce, great
9) Fresno health inspector talks about the gross place
10) pizza place closes, bad high school band plays a lot, funny stuff about a grandmother who wishes she tied her tubes
11) perverted and dark!
12) pizza sauce versus blood, silliness
13) place closes
