An Evening With ROY ZIMMERMAN
The Los Angeles Times writes, "Zimmerman displays a lacerating wit and keen awareness of society's foibles that bring to mind a latter-day Tom Lehrer."
Tom Lehrer himself says, "I congratulate Roy Zimmerman on reintroducing literacy to comedy songs.'"
Joni Mitchell says, "Roy's lyrics move beyond poetry and achieve perfection."
Roy Zimmerman tours constantly, taking his funny songs about fracking, creationism, marijuana laws, government shutdown, same-sex marriage, guns, taxes and abstinence across the country, often playing in some of the least Progressive places in America for the most Progressive people there - the "Blue Dots" he calls them. In thirteen albums over twenty years, Roy Zimmerman has brought the sting of satire to the struggle for Peace and Social Justice. His songs have been heard on HBO and Showtime. He has recorded for Warner/Reprise Records. Zimmerman's YouTube videos have amassed over seven million views. He's been profiled on NPR's "All Things Considered," and he's a featured blogger for the Huffington Post. The world is full of funny songs, but Zimmerman's hilarious, rhyme-intensive originals are also incisive calls to action, smart, savvy and undeniable.
