Bruce, Lenny - Sick Humor Of Lenny Bruce CD (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU 23-Greyscale 5060230869278
“Groundbreaking first major album from the controversial comedian. Lenny Bruce was an American stand-up comedian, social critic, satirist, and screenwriter. He was renowned for his open, free-style and critical form of comedy which integrated satire, politics, religion, sex, and vulgarity.
The lion's share of this release, The Sick Humor of Lenny Bruce (1959), seems to have been gleaned from a bountiful cache of recordings that Bruce documented during a multi-week run at the infamous Ann's 440 Club in San Francisco in the spring of 1958. The artist's irreverence - which would by most modern accounts be considered inflammatory, racist, sexist, bigoted, and otherwise socially unacceptable - is captured on the stage as well as on the inventive studio-prepared piece of "poetry in jazz" mental wordplay titled "Psychopathia Sexualis."
