Feeling discouraged in these troubled times? In his new show, "RiZe Up," Roy Zimmerman brings laughter and encouragement to progressive-minded people. "Sometimes I think satire is the most hopeful form of expression," says Zimmerman, "because in calling out the world's absurdities and laughing in their face, I'm affirming the real possibility for change."
Roy has shared stages with Bill Maher, Ellen DeGeneres, Holly Near, John Oliver and others. In his ninety-minute Fellowship presentation, you will hear both hilarious parodies and forceful original songs affirming Peace and Social Justice. "I get accused of 'preaching to the choir,'" he says, "but that's not how I think of it. I think of it as 'entertaining the troops.'"
