About Roy Zimmerman

Roy Zimmerman sings satirical songs – original songs about class warfare, creationism, same-sex marriage, guns, marijuana, abstinence, Republicans (a lot of songs about Republicans), ignorance, war and greed. There’s a decidedly Lefty slant to his lyrics. “We used to have a name for Right Wing satire,” he says. “We called it ‘cruelty.'”

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.”

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

In twelve albums over twenty years and on stages, screens and airwaves across America, Roy 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. He’s a featured blogger for the Huffington Post. And everywhere Zimmerman goes, the Starving Ear goes with him.

COMING FRIDAY, OCTOBER 2 AT 7:30 PM!

Roy Zimmerman
What can one person do about climate change, torture, racism, gun violence, fracking, Congressional ineptitude, ignorance, war and greed?  Write funny songs, says Roy Zimmerman.  “The Faucet’s on Fire!” is ninety minutes of Zimmerman’s hilarious, rhyme-intensive original songs.  His songs have been heard on HBO and Showtime.  He’s shared stages with Bill Maher, Robin Williams, Ellen DeGeneres, John Oliver, Kate Clinton and George Carlin.  He’s been profiled on NPR’s “All Things Considered,” and he’s a featured blogger for the Huffington Post.
