Allen Sherman Sings About Lox by the Forward

Allen Sherman Sings About Lox

Next month, Brandeis University Press will release “Overweight Sensation: The Life and Comedy of Allan Sherman” by Forward contributor Mark Cohen.

For the past few months, Cohen has been uploading Sherman songs to YouTube, many of them little known or even unreleased.
