Organizer/Author
Audiences of all ages have thrilled to the post-corporate comic stylings of satirical songster Dave Lippman. The anti-war troubadour afflicts the complacent, takes the air out of the windbags of the week, de-distorts history, and updates worn-out songs with parody and thrust. He is not your grandfather’s folksinger.

On the extreme other hand, Singing CIA Agent George Shrub, hedging his bets, has passed the torch – which was melting down – to his rich relation, Wild Bill Bailout, the Bard of the Bankers. Like Shrub, Wild Bill 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.

How will Wild Bill finesse the collapse of capital and find a new way to rule the world? Can he help Mr. Obama put lipstick on a war? Will he Bank on America or are we all turning Chinese? Can Hugo Chavez be stopped from using Gaza to embarrass the US and hand the world to Iran? Stay tuned!
