“The best musical satirist working today.” - Bay Area Reporter
Roy Zimmerman’s signature blend of heart and hilarity has never been more necessary. In a career spanning more than thirty years, Roy’s songs have been heard on HBO and Showtime, and his videos have garnered hundreds of millions of views.
Roy co-writes these songs with his wife Melanie Harby. Their song parody “Vote Him Away (The Liar Tweets Tonight)” has had over 140 million views online.
Together, they have produced eleven albums of tuneful satire. The latest release is THIS MACHINE: THE BEST OF ROY ZIMMERMAN, a double album featuring 25 songs from Roy's 25 years as a solo artist.
Joni Mitchell says, "Roy's lyrics move beyond poetry and achieve perfection."
The Los Angeles Times says, “Zimmerman displays a lacerating wit and keen awareness of society's foibles that bring to mind a latter-day Tom Lehrer."
Tom Lehrer says, "I congratulate Roy Zimmerman on reintroducing literacy to comedy songs.”
Roy has shared stages with a vast variety of musical and comedic luminaries - Robin Williams, Black Francis, Ellen DeGeneres, Arlo Guthrie, Bill Maher, Holly Near, John Oliver, The Roches, George Carlin.
