Roy Zimmerman took his satirical songs to Real America last year, driving 12,000 miles and flying 12,000 more to do 107 shows in 47 states before the election. He brings his show “Roy Zimmerman: Real American” to the AMSD stage.

Real American is 90 minutes of Zimmerman’s funny songs about ignorance, war and greed, featuring new material infused with his on-the-road experiences and driven, as always, by the headlines.
Zimmerman explains the pre-election tour: “The idea was to get out of my little Liberal cocoon of Marin County, CA, and meet some of the most Progressive people in the least Progressive places in the country.” He played venues large and small in Red, Blue and Swing states, writing new songs on the road, and posting new videos to YouTube, often from the road itself. “Gas was expensive and in short supply,” he says, “but Absurdity was plentiful and cheap.”

Along the way, Zimmerman played events at both Democratic and Republican national conventions, and
joined forces with activist singer Holly Near for a series of “Sing Out the Vote Ohio” concerts.
