Roy Zimmerman has been writing satirical songs for 20 years. He’s shared the stage with George Carlin, Bill Maher, Kate Clinton, Dennis Miller, Sandra Tsing Loh, kd lang, Andy Borowitz and Paul Krassner. He also played a series of shows swapping songs with The Pixies’ Frank Black.
Zimmerman founded and wrote all the material for the satirical folk quartet The Foremen, who recorded for Warner Reprise throughout the Nineties. As a solo artist, he’s released four albums, and there’s a fifth, “Faulty Intelligence” due out in May. “I hope it gets good reviews,” he says, “but mostly I hope it gets denied under oath by Karl Rove.”
