Neil Hamburger talks dirty and influences people with Raw Hamburger, working blue to challenge your conservative hang-ups on hot-button topics like spelling, VCR clocks, and airplane food. His words bite like chinchillas, furious bursts of gratuitous profanity that pummel taboos like they were dollar-store piñatas. Who else but Hamburger would tackle verboten subjects like parenthood ("Has anyone here ever changed dirty diapers? You get sh*t all over your f*cking hands!"), politics ("Did any of you hear the one about Bill Clinton? He caught herpes from that gay senator!"), and hip-hop ("The only rap I can stand is the wrapping paper around my prunes!"), especially in such broad, sloppy strokes? Challenging and provocative -- think Jay Leno with Tourette's syndrome, and maybe a dash of Epstein-Barr -- Raw Hamburger is USDA-prime hilarity, sliced thick and juicy from the cow of classic comedy. Dig in!
