I have been lucky to not only see Mort Sahl perform, but meeting and talking with him is something you can never forget. Mort Sahl is the Godfather of standup comedy, starting in 1953. He started the precedent of taking real life issues, both domestic and international, added his own style of humor, with a stream-of-conscious whose digressions were sometimes funnier than the punchline. A social satirist who also talked about politics, men and women, the movies, and pointing out the hypocrisy, using his great imagination and rapid delivery to expose the truth with cleverness and humor.
