    Does anyone know if any filmed concert material with Tom Lehrer is available (at all), and who should be pushed into releasing it? I find his lyrics quite hilarious, and since much of the avialable material is live, one could always hope. Of course, it's so old that nothing may be available.

    Did he ever have any TV specials or anything? Show up on Ed Sullivan? True, everything I've heard from him is live but I'd be hard pressed to find anyone familiar with him who wasn't already a fan, or inclined to novelty music.

    I'd love to see a live performance as well.

    I still have a 33 1/3 Lp of his "songs". I think he is quite funny too. I'm not really aware of any video of him performing.
