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

Known for his roles on Tim & Eric Awesome Show Great Job!, and extensive tours throughout the US, Canada and Australia, David Liebe Hart is an outsider musician, actor and painter. A true original, he has communicated with extra-terrestrials, owns a large collection of puppets, and is obsessed with trains.
