Review: Neil Hamburger

Neil Hamburger
“Great Moments at Di Presa’s Pizza House”
(Drag City)

America’s Funnyman has returned with yet another CD of shitty-ass jokes under the guise of a Ken Burn’s-esque audio mockumentary about a pizza parlor in California’s central valley. “Great Moments At Di Presa’s Pizza House” is filled with some jokes from Mr. Hamburger, but the thick of the album is mainly filled with skits surrounding the history between Hamburger and the pizza parlor. Described as Hamburger’s “Sgt. Pepper” album; the material on this recording, unlike his five previous releases, is relatively difficult to masturbate to while listening.
