Mort Sahl, Social Satirst

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Every Thursday at 7pm Mort Sahl takes the stage to deliver a show filled with his legendary, take-no-prisoners wit. Mort was crowned a leader of the new breed of modern comedians by Time magazine in 1960, and was the first entertainer ever to appear on its cover.

Today, Mort is the longest actively performing American social satirist, spanning sixty plus years and eleven presidents. Join us as we listen to his incredible satirical wit, which remains razor-sharp and on target today.

A 1955 performance with Dave Brubeck was recorded and released (without Sahl’s permission), selling as “Mort Sahl At Sunset.” That album was recently recognized by the Library of Congress as the first stand-up comedy record album.
