"Did you ever wonder what would happen if your favorite movies had been filmed inside a toilet?" frazzled stand-up comic Neil Hamburger queried this summer. Most audience members probably hadn't, but they were quick to shout suggestions, to which Hamburger responded quickly, predictably and hilariously. "Ya Ya Sisterhood
? Ya Ya
Shitterhood!" Then, in close succession, "Spaceballs
? Shitballs! Meatballs
? Shitballs!" Much of his set was equally silly and scatological, but there were some knowing jabs buried deep in the schtick, as he skewered familiar targets such as Britney Spears, Osama bin Laden and Red Hot Chili Peppers with off-the-wall punch lines. Observers giggled instinctively at the absurdity, then unleashed deeper, louder laughs later, after the set's satirical edge had fully punctured their minds.
