Musical Satire!

Repeat SALA speaker and fantastically author and witty screenwriter David Misch is speaking at AJU (across from the Skirball) one night only. Join Assembly friends as we check out Greatest Satirical Songs: the Sequel, a lecture with musical clips at 4pm January 27th. RSVP here, and get tickets ($15-$25) here.

In today’s world, we must do everything we can to forget today’s world. That’s where satirical songs come in, giving us a moment of merriment before we return to the hellscape of our lives.
Despite popular demand, comedian/screenwriter David Misch returns with an all-new multimedia sequel to last year’s look (an L.A. Weekly Pick) at the best musical satire in history.
Let David be your genial guide as Weird Al Yankovic, Randy Newman, Monty Python, Gilbert & Sullivan, Amy Adams, Stephen Sondheim, “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”, Tom Lehrer and George Friderich Handel sing an undersung art form, with clips, anecdotes and giggles aplenty. (Historical note: Giggles Aplenty is David’s stripper name.)
