Neil Hamburger is a fine match for Club Chuckles, a local comedy showcase that extols scenesters, punks and the rest of their ilk to take a night off from shoe-gazing to engage with some live comedy. The character (created by prankster Gregg Turkington) is a finely-tuned send up of the very worst American stand-up has to offer, and yet he has opened for acts as varied as Tenacious D and Faith No More. Nowadays, hipster audiences can't stop congratulating themselves for getting the joke, but underneath the artifice, Turkington is a strangely good writer and compelling performer. For this edition, Club Chuckles expands from its homebase at Hemlock Tavern to the wide open spaces of the Independent.
