REGENT THEATRE 7 Medford Street, Arlington 781-646-4849 www.RegentTheatre.com MORT SAHL LIVE:AN EVENING WITH A COMEDY LEGEND -- August 22 and August 24. Crowned as leading the new breed of modern comedians 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, skewering popular politicians 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 come- dians. A 1955 performance with Dave Brubeck was recorded and released (without Sahrs permission], selling as Mort Sah/at Sunset, and recently rec- ognized 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- /and. Sahl is the longest active per- forming American social satirist, span- ning 60 years. WILBUR THEATRE 246 Tremont Street, Boston 617-248-9700 www.TheWilburTheatre.com JIM BREUER -- August 30.
