Mort Sahl - NPR Last Laughs With Terry Gross 2003

On: Wednesday, June 17, 2015

Mort Sahl
Morton Lyon Sahl
Montreal, Quebec, Canada
May 11 1927 -

Mort Sahl was arguably the most influential comedian of the postwar era; a provocative political satirist, he singlehandedly revolutionized the comedy medium to create an art form with a scope and impact far beyond mere slapstick and gags. Sahl's conversational, free-associative style — an amalgam of anecdotes, one-liners, and pithy asides — forever elevated the standup stage from its humble, toothless beginnings into a respected forum for eye-opening social commentary, and in the process opened the door for future legends ranging from Lenny Bruce to George Carlin to Woody Allen.
