Fake comedian Neil Hamburger's Inside is, mercifully for most listeners, just a 14-minute EP. He's really a one-note comic, but that's exactly the point: Subtly lampooning the stupidity of most stand-ups is where Hamburger gets his laughs, although they're few and far between. Inside Neil Hamburger starts with a funny snippet from what is supposedly an interview on Australian radio (in fact, it appears to be Hamburger providing both voices), then there's a fairly funny/unfunny stand-up routine, a horrendously stupid skit called "Inspirational Speaker," and a bunch of actually pretty funny (yet stupid) jokes at the expense of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Inside Neil Hamburger may be the comedian's finest work today, though, as it doesn't wear out its welcome.
