A new hour of honestly brutal comedy with D'Bear himself.
Neil Thornton is a smart, funny, and occasionally angry comedian who has performed all over the world: New York City comedy clubs, nudist resorts, and the Edinburgh Fringe, not to mention all over new New Zealand - from big city gigs to small hamlets in the middle of nowhere for confused sheep farmers. His shows "Ursus Americanus,” "Bearly Kiwi,” “Hangry Americans” and “Cynics Guide to Enlightenment" were hits at the New Zealand Fringe Festival and NZ International Comedy Festival. He makes occasional appearances on the television comedy news show "The Project" and was featured on the TV3 comedy special "After Hours."
