Thomas Andrew (Tom) Lehrer (born April 9, 1928) American songwriter, satirist, pianist, mathematician, and singer
Simply put, Tom Lehrer is a true genius, having earned a Bachelor’s in mathematics from Harvard by the age of 18, and a Master’s degree by age 19.

Lehrer has never shied away from controversy, or worried in the least about being politically incorrect.

Known for his musical talents, mathematical brilliance and comedic gifts, Tom Lehrer has inspired a deep following, especially among the intelligentsia.
