Biography[]

Tom Lehrer started his career as a mathematician, but he had a witty streak and talent for playing the piano, so he'd occasionally play funny songs for friends. They loved him, and convinced him to self-release an album. He did, and it sold well enough to finance another one. He used that fame to do some live shows, and then started submitting to That Was The Week That Was, where a lot of his songs were on the air. He also contributed to The Electric Company, but retired from music when he decided it wasn't fun anymore, and went back to his career as a mathematics professor.
