Neil Hamburger First that gig at Madison Square Garden, and now the starring role in a major motion picture? Maybe America’s funnyman Neil Hamburger is finally about to break—and not in the way everyone figured (you know, like a psychotic break). Instead, the recent film Entertainment puts him on the same kind of nowheresville tour circuit the Sex Pistols were on in 1978—you know, when uncom-prehending backwater cowboys chucked bottles at Sid and Johnny—for basically the same reasons . . . because that’s comedy gold, baby! And it’s also what Hamburger deliv-ers, generally in the form of dirty, misshapen nuggets pried from the walls of some steep psychic hole . It’s not just the stuff of leg-ends—it’s the stuff of life. Neil Hamburger with Major Entertainer at Continental Room, 115 W. Santa Fe Ave., Ful-lerton, (714) 526-4529; continentalroomoc. com. 9 p.m. Free. 21+. —CHRIS ZIEGLER [CONVENTIONS] Wham! Bam! Pow! Long Beach Comic Expo It’s amazing to see how far the Long Beach Comic Expo has come these past couple of years, starting as a con focusing on the worlds of horror and comics, to being more inclusive of broader genres. Now, it’s a staple in the Southern California comics scene in which one can find local comic retailers (we see you in the exhibitor lineup, Big Red Comics!) as well as global ones and meet with industry legends Bob Layton, Aaron Lopresti, Stephan Franck, Tim Bradstreet, June Chung and more. There are also celebrity photo ops, panels, vendors and—oh, yes—cosplayers in wild, inventive, hilarious costumes! So take a day off from the real world and indulge in your abiding love for everything comics and pop culture. As any fan will tell you, this place is not only heaven, but it’s also home.
