Roy Zimmerman: Benefit Concert for Peace Camp Houston

February 2 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$20

What can one person do about climate change, torture, racism, xenophobia, gun violence, fracking, Congressional ineptitude, ignorance, war and greed?  Write funny songs, says Roy Zimmerman, master satirist, songwriter, and performer.

HPJC is bringing Roy Zimmerman back to Houston in a benefit to raise funds for Peace Camp Houston. Plus there’s an optional figer-foods/social before the concert.

“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.”

Roy’s songs have been heard on HBO and Showtime.  He’s shared stages with Bill Maher, Robin Williams, Ellen DeGeneres, John Oliver, Kate Clinton and George Carlin.  He’s been profiled on NPR’s “All Things Considered,” and he’s a featured blogger for the Huffington Post.

He’s funny, he’s a great musician, he’s an excellent performer, and his in-person performances are outstanding.  What more could you ask for?

The concert starts at 7:00 pm, and there’s also optional finger-foods and social at 6:00 pm — bring some food or drink to share, if you wish.

Location:
Unitarian Fellowship of Houston
1504 Wirt Rd.
Houston, TX 77055
