Mort Sahl

Hosted by
Mort Sahl, who first took an irreverent stand on the cutting edge of American social and political humor with his legendary appearances at San Francisco's famed "hungry i" in the early 1950s, refuses to slow down or soften his touch after four decades of ruffling the feathers of the powerful and affluent and shaking a finger at their deeds. The first humorist on the cover of "Time" magazine and the first non-musician to win a Grammy Award, Sahl-s comments today are as incisive as ever. His photo appears on the cover of the just-released SERIOUSLY FUNNY: The Rebel Comedians of the 1950s and 1960s by Gerald Nachman.
