Wish You Were Here - Groucho Marx The United Nations Song Marxfest
Watch the complete video of Wish You Were Here: Groucho Marx, featuring me as Groucho in conversation with Jens Hoffmann at the Jewish Museum. VaudeVisuals and Trav S.D. produced this Vaudephone video of my "United Nations Song," as seen in Travesties of 2012. (Older version here.)

Trampled by a Horse American Bank Max Fleming
Most of my work is comedic, but once in a while I do something gravely serious, such as Trampled by a Horse. In America, planning your future means planning your future, in America. American Bank. Because your dreams are like the sun. Max Fleming is one of the great vocalists in the history of American popular song.
Bread and Butter Tillo Marx Dr. Hackenbush Restored

The World Has Sprung a Leak The Cradle Will Rock New Faces of 1492
Read some poetry by my grandfather, Joseph Lerner. Read my essays on the lyrics, the original recording, and the 2013 Encores production of Marc Blitzstein's agitprop masterpiece. New Faces of 1492 is an animated film that dares to tell the truth about Christopher Columbus: He was a schmuck.
Penguin Home Invasion Pathological-Incoherent Theatre What?
Some years ago, our home was invaded by tiny penguins. (We moved.) Read all about it, and survey the photographic evidence, at Penguin Home Invasion. Bernard Gurk's Pathological-Incoherent Theatre Company has been a staple of the downtown arts scene for decades. I really don't know what this is.
