Roy Zimmerman show "Funny Songs and Bad Advice"

Roy Zimmerman is a satirical songwriter whose new show is called “Funny Songs and Bad Advice.” He brings plenty of both to Princeton on Friday, September 27, at 7:30pm for a performance at the UU Congregation of Princeton, 50 Cherry Hill Road.

Admission is $18 or pay what you can.

In thirteen albums over twenty years, 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. His YouTube v...ideos 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.

At times, Zimmerman wears his heart on his Left sleeve. "Hope and Change is what you voted for," he sings, "...but you know the slogan always needed just one more word: Hope, Struggle and Change."

Sing Out! Magazine writes, "Zimmerman is a guy on the left skewering folks on the right with rapier-sharp lyrics ... underneath the caustic satire is a man who is surprisingly optimistic."

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
