Morton Lyon Sahl (born May 11, 1927) is a Canadian-born American stand-up comedian, actor and social satirist, considered the first modern stand-up comedian since Will Rogers. Sahl pioneered a style of social satire which pokes fun at political and current event topics using improvised monologues and only a newspaper as a prop. Sahl spent his early years in Los Angeles and moved to the San Francisco Bay Area where he made his professional stage debut at the hungry i nightclub in 1953.

Mort Sahl got his start at the Hungry i, and this album, mostly recorded at that club, shows Sahl doing what he does best: attacking anyone and everyone, from the president to Kruschev, from New Yorkers to the Germans. In fact, on both sides of the album he asks "Is there anyone I haven't offended?," and it's clear that he's out to barbecue all sacred cows

The hungry i was a nightclub in San Francisco, originally located in the North Beach neighborhood. It played a major role in the history of stand-up comedy in the US. It was launched by Eric "Big Daddy" Nord, who sold it to Enrico Banducci in 1951. The club moved to Ghirardelli Square in 1967 and operated mostly as a rock music venue until it closed in 1970.

performers, including Mort Sahl, Jonathan Winters, Professor Irwin Corey, Jackie Vernon and a host of others, reunited in 1981 for a memorable one-night performance with Banducci present, captured in the nationally televised documentary hungry i Reunion, produced and directed by Thomas A. Cohen and featuring separate reminiscences by Maya Angelou and Bill Cosby. An exhibition on the history of the hungry i opened March 28, 2007 at the San Francisco Performing Arts Library, now the Museum of Performance & Design, and was on view through August 25, 2007. Alumni who performed at the hungry i during its heyday-as well as club owner Enrico Banducci and his daughter-gathered for an opening celebration March 27.
