If Joni Mitchell and Daffy Duck had a love child, he’d probably write songs just like JOHN FORSTER. His sharply observed satires range from sheer slapstick to Jon Stewart acute.
John Forster: Press
JOHN FORSTER looks like an Episcopalian minister, but sings with adder tongue...A laser-swift wit, glinting with irony...One of the sharpest musical satirists around.
JOHN FORSTER has claimed the satirical crown long abandoned by Tom Lehrer. He's one very funny songwriter.
You don’t need me anymore. Now you’ve got JOHN FORSTER to kick around.
FORSTER has the world view of George Carlin, the musical-parody chops of Frank Zappa in his glory days, musically and lyrically clever in ways that AI Yankovic can only dream about.
JOHN FORSTER bestrides the current events scene like a colossus... His winning smile, expressive face and easy voice make the evening of original songs all too short.
Fiercely original humor from a wonderful song satirist.
JOHN FORSTER is a one-man musical comedy, a self-contained Capitol Steps, yet with a delightful quirkiness all his own...painfully truthful and filled with fun.
"Article Nine" is the funniest song ever written about any Japanese state document...ever!"
