Tuli Kupferberg’s ‘Daily Perverbs’

His YouTube channel is tulifuli, and at age 86, despite ill health, he still posts quite frequently — looks like two or three times a week, usually. Here are a few examples over the last month:

I profiled the Fugs in 2003, on their last reunion, and I still have the two gifts Tuli gave me before their show at the Village Underground: a copy of his book Teach Yourself Fucking and a button that says “Impeach the President (Generic).”

And here’s his Christmas show for Revolting News in 1992, which, according to its description, features “performances of ‘Christmas in the Workhouse’ and Tuli’s own song, ‘The 8 Days of Hanukah.’ Also stories, poems and a partial reading of ‘A Child’s Christmas in Wales’ by Dylan Thomas.”

Ed Sanders tells me a benefit concert for Tuli is being readied for January with the help of Hal Willner.
