Bruce, Lenny - American CD (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU 23-GSGZ 019
“This is a must-have. Period. Recorded before the Lenny's life itself became the drama, when his ideas could be judged on their own terms. Here is Lenny having fun, riffing, creating characters. Lenny's perspective was that of the underdog, the average guy--just trying to get by, have a few laughs, not be bugged--and how hard it was in mid-20th century America just to do THAT.
A lot of the references in here might be lost on contemporary audiences--to obscure B-movie actors, for example. Still, no one who loves comedy can ignore Bruce's influence. George Carlin, Richard Pryor, Chris Rock, and dozens of others are free to say what they want how they want because Lenny took on the court system and forced them to re-define obscenity--even if some of his legal victories happened posthumously.”
