The L.A. Times says Lippman has “original tunes that quirkily combine Phil Ochs and David Byrne.”
The L.A. Herald Examiner says, “He ís a national treasure.”
“An expert shredder of today’s news,” says the San Francisco Weekly.
Lippman’s multi-character satires delight college audiences. His several albums and CD have gotten college air play across the country.
He has toured internationally since 1980, afflicting the complacent and occasionally rhyming in the process. His comedy characters take the air out of the blowhards and rewrite the classics with parody and thrust.
Famous for his portrayal of singing CIA Agent George Shrub, Lippman now tours with the Bard of the Bankers, Wild Bill Bailout, who employs anti-folk songs and anti-nationalization anthems to explain (and enforce) that the business of America is none of your business, that those too big to fail are also too big for jail, and that the jobless and foreclosed must bail out their own boats.
Described as “viciously funny,” the LA Weekly called him “deadpan and dead-on.”
His performances include numerous tours of the United States, Britain Australia and Nicaragua since 1981. He has opened for John McCutcheon, David Bromberg, Leon Rosselson, Utah Phillips, Country Joe MacDonald, Patty Larkin, Beausoleil, and the Dirty Dozen Brass Band.
