"Hail to Thee, Fat Person"

A performance of Sherman's "All of My Laughter," from his 1969 musical, The Fig Leaves Are Falling.  As much as anything he wrote, it was his anthem and expresses his unrestrained approach to life.

This clip from the TV show Fame features Sherman's composer partner on Fig Leaves, Albert Hague, singing Sherman's "Did I Ever Really Live." (From Italian television. The lyrics are in English. The dialogue is dubbed, but it's the best quality clip available.)
