Roy Zimmerman: ReZist

Over twenty years on stages, screens and airwaves across America, Roy Zimmerman has brought the sting of satire to the struggle for Peace and Justice. His newest show "ReZist" brings laughter and encouragement to progressive-minded people who need a lot of both in the Age of Trump. "Sometimes I think satire is the most hopeful form of expression," says Roy, "because in calling out the world's absurdities and laughing in their face, I'm affirming the real possibility for change." Roy's songs have been heard on HBO and Showtime. He has recorded for Warner/Reprise Records. His YouTube videos have garnered over seven million views, and he's a featured blogger for the Huffington Post. Zimmerman has shared stages with Bill Maher, Ellen DeGeneres, Robin Williams, Holly Near, Arlo Guthrie, John Oliver, The Roches, Andy Borowitz, The Chambers Brothers and George Carlin. He's done several shows with The Pixies' Frank Black, swapping songs in a solo acoustic setting, and provided comic commentary to the live premiere performance of Black's score for the classic silent film "Der Golem." The world is full of funny songs, but Zimmerman's hilarious, rhyme-intensive originals are also incisive calls to action, smart, savvy and undeniable. Roy's songs are often played on progressive radio by Stephanie Miller, Bill Press, Randi Rhodes, Thom Hartmann, and others. His tunes are spun regularly by folk music DJs across the country and he's a frequent guest on Sirius Radio's syndicated show "West Coast Live."
