Neil Hamburger (aka America’s Funnyman) is a standup comedian character played by comedian and musician Gregg Turkington.
Hamburger’s live act, which is quite different from his many albums, features a barrage of question/answer jokes aimed often at celebrity targets as well as depressing barbs aimed at his ex-wife. His pacing is off, and he often clears his throat during his routine, usually to keep overzealous fans from shouting out his punchlines. He has performed in front of audiences worldwide from Madison Square Garden to Jimmy Kimmel Live! and the confrontational aspects of his act have drawn cursory comparisons to Tony Clifton.
