Jake Broder reignites the amazing routines of cult comic and faux aristocrat Lord Buckley. His Royal Hipness Lord Buckley in The Zam Zam Room is a fizzy cocktail of style and substance, featuring "the hippest stories in storydom" backed by a live jazz band. The tale of Scrooge becomes a breezy be-bop fable and a jive talking Jesus epitomizes cannabis cool with "The Nazz." Along with "The Gettysburg Address" and Jonah and the Whale and nightly doses of The Hip News and many others, His Royal Hipness Lord Buckley in The Zam Zam Room will "blow your wig away."
Lord Buckley single-handedly brought "Hip Semantic" into the mainstream in the 1950s. One of the most influential figures of American counter-culture, Lord Buckley inspired a host of visionary performers, including Lenny Bruce, Robin Williams, Richard Prior, as well as Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Thelonious Monk and Frank Sinatra. Phillip Breen directs.
