Recent: Satire & Salutations PDF Print E-mail

 Aardvark’s recent November Post-Election concert, funded in part by the MIT DeFlorez Fund for Humor and entitled “Satire & Salutations” was a rollicking event. Quotes from Mark Twain, and the spirit of H. L. Mencken held sway as Mark Harvey’s original pieces such as “Flat Earth Boogie,” “De-Evolution Blues,” and “Scamology” evoked the political/cultural scene, introduced by hilarious anecdotes from former De Florez Professor Jay Keyser, a member of the orchestra.  

And the standing-room-only crowd also heard a salute to past “Rascals & Scoundrels” James Michael Curley and Charles Ponzi.  All in all, a  musical-satirical evening that neatly counterpointed the best of our national stand-up comics. The event was held at Killian Hall, MIT.
