An undisputed comic legend, Lenny Bruce was one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. His Life and work have had an impact on poetry, politics, music, film and, oh yeah…comedy. Lenny’s tempestuous personal and professional life was marked by great passion and great pain. His unwavering commitment to free speech led to numerous obscenity charges and arrests. He was a martyr for how both adventurous and mainstream comedy are heard today, and his “forbidden humor” paved the way for such comic greats as Richard Pryor, George Carlin and Robin Williams. Bruce has not yet been surpassed at his particular brand of art, and if he were around today, he would be in as much trouble as when he was alive.
