neil hamburger came to a dive bar in downtown mobile alabama shortly after i got out of jail.
i'd been listening to his comedy thanks to xixax legend SLEUTH for a long time, and was completely flabbergasted to hear he was coming to a place as small as this. a couple punk bands played before him at this show also, pedro. that's crazy.
i was friends with the owner so i got to chill upstairs before his set with him, and he is just the most respectful, nicest dude ever. he's so fuckin cool. he's just smooth man. anyway, he went on, and fuckin killed it. there were maybe 30 people there because no one had ever heard of him except me and a couple local comics. when the show ended i helped him and his buddy pack up his equipment and i was so wasted i told him a joke while doing an impersonation of him and at the end he gave me a huge hug and got into a super tiny car.
i had to ask my friend to remind me of the joke. if you don't know neil hamburgers style of comedy you might find this offensive so:
