In the 50s & 60s, during the Cold War nuclear panic, mathematician TOMLEHRER became an international, comedy sensation. Lehrer, at his piano, sang bitingly twisted tunes and became a pioneer in satirizing war, sex, racism, religion, drugs, and politics. With a side order of “Elements” of course. He’s inspired the likes of Weird Al, Randy Newman, and Bo Burnham to name a few. Comedian, actor, and pianist ALLANMURRAY portrays Tom and brings his story to life, peppered with the acid-tinged ditties that still attract a global audience.
“His brilliance has inspired hero worship among several generations of fans of satire & funny music.”
-Weird Al Yankovik
