Great fun! New light to the songs I loved to listen to as a kid (had one of his albums). Great voices and suburb energy from the stage. Hats off to the hidden band, they too did a great job. Well worth seeing!

Description

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. However, his genious is even more obvious from his songs. To listen to them is to experience genius in an accessible, yet inimitable way. Lehrer has never shied away from controversy, or worried in the least about being politically incorrect. His songs were often in the vanguard of social morality, although he probably doesn’t see himself as a social crusader. Known for his musical talents, mathematical brilliance and comedic gifts, Tom Lehrer has inspired a deep following, especially among the intelligentsia.
