Roy Zimmerman in "This Machine"
Saturday, October 1, 7:00pm and 9:00pmPolitical Satire$25Los Angeles Times, "Zimmerman displays a lacerating wit and keen awareness of society's foibles that bring to mind a latter-day Tom Lehrer." Tom Lehrer, "I congratulate Roy Zimmerman on reintroducing literacy to comedy songs. And the rhymes actually rhyme; they don't just 'rhyne.'Joni Mitchell, "Roy's lyrics move beyond poetry and achieve perfection."Roy Zimmerman brings “This Machine” to the Berkshires just before national elections. His songs, and “This Machine” tells it like he sees it – with a smile. Zimmerman is known nationally for songs about class warfare, creationism, same-sex marriage, guns, marijuana, abstinence, Republicans (a lot of songs about Republicans), ignorance, war and greed. In twelve albums over twenty years and on stages, screens and airwaves across America, Roy has brought the sting of satire, and the relief of belly laughter, to the struggle for Peace and Social Justice. 2016’s "This Machine" tour, a nod to Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger, features ninety minutes of rhyme-intensive, political, original and hilarious songs. “Sometimes I think satire is the most hopeful and heartfelt form of expression,” says Roy, “because in calling out the world's absurdities… I'm affirming the real possibility of change.” Roy has shared the stage with Bill Maher, Robin Williams, Ellen DeGeneres, John Oliver, Kate Clinton and George Carlin. He's been profiled on NPR's "All Things Considered," is a featured blogger for the Huffington Post, has recorded for Warner/Reprise Records and his songs have been aired on HBO and Showtime.“Religious Freedom (To Burn Our Own Witches)”
