“Live From the Starving Ear” is 90 minutes of San Francisco satirist Roy Zimmerman’s funny songs and comic commentary. The Tea Party, the economy, same-sex marriage, Socialism, Creationism, guns, taxes, abstinence and yes, Barack Obama all come under satirical scrutiny. “There’s a whole new political landscape,” he says, “painted by Jackson Pollock.”

The Los Angeles Times says, “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. And the rhymes actually rhyme, they don’t just ‘rhyne.'”

Joni Mitchell says, “Roy’s lyrics move beyond poetry and achieve perfection.”
