Roy Zimmerman: Politics, Satire and a Love Song to Dick Cheney [Rebroadcast]
Roy Zimmerman: Politics, Satire and a Love Song to Dick Cheney [Rebroadcast]

Listen
AIR DATE: May 25, 2012

What's funny about ignorance, war, and greed?  Nothing... except when Roy Zimmerman sings about them. 
 
The guitar-wielding musician is a political satirist - he takes hot button issues, and gets plenty of laughs when he turns them into songs.  Part Stephen Colbert, part Weird Al Yankovich, his hits include "My Conservative Girlfriend," "Creation Science 101," and a love song to Dick Cheney.  (“Now, when I first heard that our Vice President shot a guy… well, I thought he’s just exercising his Second Amendment right to free speech.”)  He's shared the stage with George Carlin, Bill Maher, and Andy Borowitz. 
 
And he's coming to Las Vegas on Saturday, January 28, to the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Las Vegas.  He hopes his new CD gets good reviews, "but mostly I hope it gets denied under oath by Karl Rove."  Originally aired 1/18/12.
