This 1996 recording of a performance by Pat Paulsen, an Emmy-winning comedian most noted for his roles on the Smothers Brothers' television programs as well as several tongue-in-cheek presidential campaigns, is a marvelous display of Paulsen's gentle yet cutting political satire. From the foibles of recent presidents to the differences between Democrats and Republicans, Paulsen comments on everything surrounding American politics, as well as the general culture at-large, with a keen wit. A mid-performance break into song tackles less heady territory but is charming just the same, and Paulsen's breezy demeanor turns Unzipped into an amusing crowd-pleaser.
And then he woke up!
Possessed of a sharp wit, to say the least, Pat Paulsen will amaze and amuse you. Unzipped is his posthumous release.
