Hailing from the glamorous streets of Hollywood, CA, Clownvis Presley has accomplished more in the past few years than most entertainers achieve in their whole careers. In addition to hosting his own monthly variety show and MCing countless events, his charisma, quick wit, and superior singing voice have earned him opening slots on quite a few high-profile shows. He has toured extensively and performed with superstars such as Little Richard, Neil Hamburger, the Dresden Dolls, Jewel, and The Goo Goo Dolls to name a few -- all of which has earned him the title "King of Clowns."
Thanks to a controversial appearance on NBC's America's Got Talent, Clownvis is now familiar to millions of people around the planet. His phenomenal audition must be seen to be believed (maybe even more than once). Clownvis also made a hilarious appearance on BET's Judge Karen's Court in 2010.
The King of Clowns is a staple of the current Los Angeles comedy and music scene. Much more than just a party clown, this showman does it all. In addition to hosting music awards, festivals, fundraisers and burlesque revues, Clownvis is also a good guy, donating his talents to charity events and non-profit organizations.
Hamburger's jokes range from variations of "Why did the chicken cross the road?" to celebrity targets, such as Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Michael Jackson, and Diana, Princess of Wales, to jokes about his ex-wife. His pacing is off, and he clears his throat nonstop through his entire routine (often to keep overzealous fans from shouting out his punchlines), which has caused critics to tag him as "the world's 'worst' stand-up comedian." He has performed his brand of comedy, much of it anti-humor, in front of audiences from the New York University Thompson Center to Jimmy Kimmel Live and is often compared to Tony Clifton. One of his most famous gags is the "Zipper Lips," in which he asks an audience member a question. If the audience member doesn't respond, Hamburger derides them for being a "zipper lips." A common phrase used by the comedian is "But that's my life!"
