Roy Zimmerman’s new show “Funny Songs and Bad Advice” contains plenty of both. In thirteen albums over twenty years, Roy Zimmerman 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. Zimmerman’s YouTube videos have amassed over seven million views. He’s been profiled on NPR’s “All Things Considered,” and he’s a featured blogger for the Huffington Post. The world is full of funny songs, but Zimmerman’s hilarious, rhyme-intensive originals are also incisive calls to action, smart, savvy and undeniable.
