Zak Morgan was born in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1970. His sense of humor and penchant for wordplay are gifts passed down from his grandfather, George “Bud” Rooney. Listening to his grandfather invent yarns, limericks, and even new words had a profound effect on him. Now, as a successful entertainer, Morgan has been compared to Shel Silverstein and Dr. Seuss because of his wit and child friendly sophistication. Morgan began writing songs in high school. By 1991 he had released two singles that were played on over two hundred radio stations. In 1992 his topical musical parodies were heard daily on Cincinnati’s most popular morning radio show.
