On December 2nd in Lowell at The Smoke House Tavern Serenity Jones of Thick Chick Comedy and Gee Johnson will be bringing comedian Alonzo “Hamburger” Jones to Lowell.
Alonzo “Hamburger” Jones has been seen on Russel Simmons Def Comedy, BET’s Comic View, FOX’s Family Guy, Byron Allen Comic’s Unleashed and Showtime at the Apollo to name a few.
Alonzo “Hamburger Jones was known for always wearing a cowboy hat and made a name for himself as a catch phrase comedian in the early 90’s who would say “HAAAMMMMBBURRRRGGGEEERRR” in lue of foul language. (which was extremely popular at the time) The stark contrast phrase “Hamburger” found itself embedded in urban culture because of the importance and reverence the Alonzo “Hamburger” Jones has in popular culture,
So popular that Kenan Thompson parodied Jones’s use of “Hamburger” with a fictional comedian cowboy at all called David “Beef Jelly” Winfield in Saturday Night Live reoccurring sketch Kings of Catch Phrase Comedy. Jones also in an episode of Fox’s Family Guy called “Scrammed Yankees” where a solider uses the “Hamburger” phrase while talking to hostages. Opie and Anthony dedicated a significant portion of a show discussing “catch phrase comedians” after recalling Jones’s routine. Artie Lange would frequently refer to Jones on his former podcast the Artie Quitter podcast.
