REGENT THEATRE 7 Medford Street, Arlington 781-646-4649 www.RegentTheatre, corn MORT SAHL LIVE: AN EVENING WITH A COMEDY LEGEND -- Au- gust 22 and August 24.. Crowned as leading the new breed of modem co- medians by Time magazine in 1960, Mort Sahl was the first entertainer ever to appear on its cover. Before comedy clubs existed, Sahl began performing at the Hungry I music club in San Francisco in the early 1950s. He differed from other comedians, appearing in casual clothing rather than a suit, skewer-ing popular poli- ticians such as Eisenhower, Joe McCarthy and,JFK. Sahl's approach is energetic, tangential, and deep and wide in both social and political scopes, inspiring Woody Alien, George Carlin and countless other comedi- ans. A 1955 performance with Dave Bmbeck was recorded and released {without Sahl's permission), selling as Mort Sahl At Sunset, and recently recognized by the Library of Congress as the first stand-up comedy record album. When Kennedy was assassi- nated in 1963, Sahl regularly targeted the government's official Warren Commission Report during his rou- tines, resulting in the loss of much of Hollywood's support, while maintain- ing audience popularity with college tours and a best-selling book, Heart- land. Sahl is the longest active per- forming American social satirist, span- ning sixty years.
