Neil Hamburger - Raw Hamburger Cassette (1998/2016)

Raw Hamburger is Neil Hamburger's Lenny Bruce turn, upon which he explores the comedic potential of profanity and forbidden topics; he finds it in the fact that these things haven't been funny for years, if ever. Hamburger isn't afraid to use old material; he's invented a sort of humor-necrophilia in which he lovingly fondles gags that have been dead for years, like VCR clocks, airplane food, fat wives, and the idea of stand-up comedy in general. It's painful, it's hilarious, and it's unique. Raw Hamburger's only flaw may be that of all great comedy: It's so hit-or-miss and so smart at the same time that many won't get it.
