The Musical Comedy of Tom Leher - Dhamma Wheel
A Buddhist discussion forum on the Dhamma of the Theravāda
Tom Lehrer was until his recent retirement at an age somewhere in his eighties a professor of Mathematics at Harvard who back in the 50's and 60's composed and performed some very hilarious political and satirical humor. He also composed songs for Garrison Keilor's A Prairie Home Companion and the PBS show The Electric Company. I always thought of him as the darker Gershwin Brother. At any rate, I always considered him a musical and comedy genius and was delighted when a friend presented me with a recent DVD release of one of his concerts. I looked on You Tube and found some of my favorites. I'm sure many of you know of him, If not, you're in for a treat. Here are the links. Enjoy them:
