Publisher's Summary

Comedian Mort Sahl on this edition of Fresh Air. Before The Onion, Weekend Update and The Daily Show, Sahl's shtick satirized the news of the day. It's the 50th anniversary of Sahl's first appearance at The Hungry Nightclub in San Francisco. Sahl revolutionized stand-up comedy. Before Sahl, tuxedo-clad borscht belt comedians made tame jokes about your mother-in-law. After Sahl came the dark, satirical wit of comedians like Lenny Bruce, Woody Allen and Bill Cosby. (Broadcast Date: December 23, 2003)
