Kinky Friedman is a man who dons several hats. He started out as a country musician and achieved cult fame for his satirical and Jewish-themed lyrics. Blessed with a great sense of humour he has the ability to drive home important messages in a humorous and lighthearted manner. Born as Richard Samet Friedman, he acquired the nickname ‘Kinky’ due to his mop of curly, unruly hair. He formed a band called Kinky Friedman and The Texas Jewboys, and gave each of his band members funny nicknames like Snakebite Jacob and Rainbow Colours. One of his most famous songs is ‘They Ain't Makin' Jews Like Jesus Anymore’ in which he berates a white racist who insults blacks, Greeks and Jews. His novels were primarily detective stories in which a fictionalized version of himself would solve crimes in New York City. In a bid to fulfill his political aspirations, Friedman ran for the position of Governor of Texas in 2006 but he lost. A devoted animal lover, he founded the Utopia Animal Rescue Ranch where abused and aging animals are cared for.
