Tivoli: Mort Sahl, Social Satirist

Every Thursday at 7pm Mort Sahl takes the stage to deliver a show filled with his legendary, take-no-prisoners wit. Mort was crowned a leader of the new breed of modern comedians by Time magazine in 1960, and was the first entertainer ever to appear on its cover.

Today, Mort is the longest actively performing American social satirist, spanning sixty years and eleven presidents. Join us as we listen to his incredible satirical wit, which remains razor-sharp and on target. You’ll learn as much as you’ll laugh!

MORE ABOUT MORT SAHL

Before comedy clubs existed, Mort began performing at the hungry i in San Francisco in the early 1950s. He differed from other comedians, appearing in casual clothing rather than a suit, skewering popular politicians such as Eisenhower, Joe McCarthy and JFK.  Sahl’s approach was energetic, tangential, and both deep and wide in social and political scopes, inspiring Woody Allen, George Carlin and countless other comedians.  A 1955 performance with Dave Brubeck was recorded and released (without Sahl’s permission), selling as “Mort Sahl At Sunset.”  That album was recently recognized by the Library of Congress as the first stand-up comedy record album.
