Lord Buckley – ‘Dig Infinity’ @ The Fringe Festival

Having done the video taping for previous Lord Buckley ‘Birthday Bash’ at the Bowery Poetry Club and also being a big fan of Lord Buckley I had to ‘plug’ this play written by my friend and neighbor Oliver Trager (author of the definitive biography on Lord Buckley).

Rod Harrison performs Lord Buckley

Here is a video of Rod Harrison performing Lord Buckley’s THE NAZ and a short excerpt from Lord Buckley performing it as well.


Excerpt from Lord Buckley doing “The Naz” in 1960 at Gate of Horn in Chicago.

Guest Blogger Oliver Trager – Author of the definitive biography on Lord Buckley “Dig Infinity“.

Despite being such a still relatively unknown and increasingly remote character in the consciousness of the western world, Lord Buckley sure has a lot of imitators. Go on YouTube and do your own search but, for whatever reason, there ain’t many attempting to channel Lenny Bruce much less Henny Youngman.
No, Buckley draws a certain flavor of personality and performer and Rod Harrison is at least tied for first as the best of the best. His energetic onstage buoyancy captures the manic Buckley and is an intoxicant of sorts in its own right — a shamanic portal of transcendence!
For anyone interested in a different take on tackling the persona and material, I will be playing the lead role in “Dig Infinity!” my play drawn from my book on the man at the FringeNYC Festival this coming August, dates/times/venues tbd.
