OCA is pleased to host Roy Zimmerman, America’s foremost political satirist who is touring the country with his new show to bring laughter and encouragement to progressive-minded people in the Age of Trump.‘ReZist’ is ninety minutes of Zimmerman’s hilarious, rhyme-intensive original songs, a funny and forceful affirmation of Peace and Social Justice. “Sometimes I think satire is the most hopeful and heartfelt 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.” 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”.
Roy’s songs have been heard on HBO and Showtime, and his videos have garnered tens of millions of views. He has recorded for Warner/Reprise Records. He’s shared stages with Bill Maher, Ellen DeGeneres, Holly Near, Robin Williams, Arlo Guthrie, John Oliver, Kate Clinton and George Carlin, and tours the country constantly with his wife and co-writer Melanie Harby when they are not at home in Northern California.
