Mon 5/7 - Neil Hamburger at ONCE Ballroom - Somerville

Comedian Neil Hamburger at Once
“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
