More About Roy Zimmerman and the June 7 show

What can one person do about racism, gun violence, climate change, income inequality, bigotry, ignorance, war and greed? “Write funny songs,” says Roy Zimmerman.

Over 20 years on stages, screens and airwaves across America, Roy has brought the sting of satire to the struggle for peace and justice.  “Sometimes I think satire is the most hopeful form of expression,” says Roy, “because in calling out the world’s absurdities and laughing in their face, I’m affirming the real possibility for change.”

There’s a decidedly Humanist side to his satire – a lesson in “Creation Science 101,” an affirmation that “Everybody Is Everybody Else” and a four-minute history of America called “Religious Freedom (to Burn Our Own Witches).” And there are unabashed progressive anthems like “Hope, Struggle and Change” and “My Vote, My Voice, My Right.”

His lyrics are creative, unexpected, and often subtle, requiring you to think. Or, they are just straight up hilarious.

Our Programming Director’s personal favorite: “I’ve been thinking about all weekend. I’ve been thinking about it all weekend. I’ve been thinking about it all weekend . . . unions are to blame.”
