PAUL KRASSNER, America's pioneer investigative satirist, takes us partway through his astonishing career.
We begin with a violin concerto alone on the stage of Carnegie Hall at age 6. Paul spins us through how he scratched an itchy leg with his other foot, drawing the laughs that would define his career.
We meet him at MAD Magazine and carry through the founding of The Realist, American's first adult satirical periodical.
We meet Lennie Bruce, Allen Ginsberg, Abbie and Anita Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, Tom Hayden and a host of those who've shaped our nation.
We also take an LSD trip on the witness stand of the Chicago 8 Conspiracy Trial, and much more.
At 83, Paul is a national treasure. Be sure to hear the beginnings of his amazing story, which we will continue at a later date….
