I used his name in the title so it will come up in the search results of anyone who looks him up. I am grateful to him for the laughter I have had in the past few days. It’s helped me get through some physical pain (I have fibromyalgia) and emotional pain too.
Roy is a comedian. He does political satire for the most part. I don’t usually look for comedy on YouTube and I really wasn’t looking for it when I found Roy. I was looking for the Beatles.
You might think that it’s odd that a comedian came up on a search for the Beatles – and if you thought that, you’d be wrong. Roy did a bit entitled, “What If the Beatles were Irish?” Since that struck me as interesting, I decided to check it out.
And there was Roy with his guitar. You see, most of his comedy is done in song, with a bit of commentary tossed in here and there. I enjoyed the Beatles piece so much, I shared it on Facebook and emailed it to a few friends. Then I started watching the rest of his videos.
It said Roy had 62 videos up. I watched at least 40 of them and subscribed to his YouTube channel. I WILL get to the rest. I enjoy political satire because . . . well, because most politicians deserve it! And taking things too seriously is what gets us in trouble. Since Roy believes in equality, he takes on both sides of the aisle, liberals and conservatives alike. So unless you’re un-American and don’t believe in equality, you’ll like something that Roy has done.
I like it so much, I’m going to give you a link to the Beatles clip and his website. The rest of the 62 are on you.
There’s one more person I’d like to tell about Roy Zimmerman. That old friend I’ve written about before that I’ve lost touch with? He loves comedy, likes politics and really loves the Beatles. He’d really enjoy these videos. So if you know Cyberlarson, tell him about Roy.
