An American bear is on the loose in New Zealand. Describing himself as "the funniest American ex-pat married gay bear comedian from New York City living in New Zealand," Neil Thornton brings you an hour of his latest and funniest material: personal to political, intelligent to bawdy. Neil Thornton has performed all over the world, from big city pride festivals to small towns on the South Island, from New York’s historic Stonewall Inn, to the Porirua Soccer club. In the United States, Neil was a regular in New York comedy clubs, and performed in Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Provincetown, Fire Island, and more. He's a favourite at Auckland and Wellington comedy clubs, and recently appeared in the TV3 comedy special "After Hours." His fringe festival show, Ursus Americanus was nominated for the Best Stand-Up Comedy award, and his NZ International Comedy Festival show, Bearly Kiwi, was nominated for Best Newcomer.
