Yes, Lance is an atheist.
Not completely sure if Lenny was.
I was born too late.
Right. Some of his stuff is so specific to the political moment he was in right then and there you do have to look it up. A few of Shakespeare’s history plays are like that. Everyone in his time knew exactly who everyone was in those plays but 400 years later, you gotta do a little research or you’re lost. No problem doing that. It’s how we learn.
Here is a no shitter: I have listened to every thing published by him. And I have read all his books. There are just a few. Some probably out of print now.
There is a pretty damn decent compilation: ‘Let The Buyer Beware.’
of most of the recordings. Of course I purchased it, but I had all the original recordings on CD’s already.
Most folks don’t get all of his humor–not their fault–you have to know some history and what was going on with the country at the time of his performances (understanding some Yiddish is also helpful). Sometimes when listening, I have to Google certain public figures he speaks about, but over all, I get most of it first round.
Or at least when talking about Lenny, I pretend to.
He was a genius and a pioneer. Without him, we’d never have had comedians like George Carlin and Richard Prior. Bruce created a style of comedy that’s affected every comedian since.
Sorry I somehow missed this comment of yours.
Thank you very much for listening. Lenny is by far, in my opinion the greatest comic of all time.
Would be fun to do.
I love it!
No, not BRUCE. STYMIE! I was doing a word play with “stymied.” Rascals were years before Bruce.
Stymie. I meant Stymie. Not Lenny Bruce. The Little Rascals were years before Bruce’s time. I’m thinking of doing a modern version of them. “The Little Republican Rascals” I’m gonna call it. They’ll be 6 year old Southern Conservative gay-hating Christian kids who do battle week to week with 6 year old Mexican and Canadian kids trying to get into the country illegally for medicine of some sort. Gonna be a fuckin’ riot!
Well, that would explain it. Thanks for the info. 🙂
I know of the Little Rascals’ One was a Texan. Lenny Bruce was not one. Spanky was a Texan,
Wasn’t he one of the original Little Rascals?
I was married to one. HeeHaw!
I am stymied
Every seen “Lenny” with Dustin Hoffman as Bruce? I haven’t in decades, so now I’ve got to rent it. I
I can’t. And I’ve an M.A. in English Lit! Thank Anu for spell check.
Son, I ben in some shit ho’s
I am drunk Texan
I am an asshole, but I can spell…
You’ve got it easy, pal. I’m a hole!
Not unless you and I are wrong and the two of these guys are playin’ a lounge in the after life!
I am an ass
Bruce was Carlin’s idol. He modeled his career and style after him.
I LOVE LENNY BRUCE!!!! Hadn’t listened to ’em in years! Once again my friend, thank you.
Anytime I feel down, or just need a good laugh, I turn to Lenny.
Thanks for listening. Glad you enjoyed.
went back and listened to all of them. fun stuff.
You are forgiven
Thanks for reading and listening.
Reminds me of George Carlin. (or vice versa) I am a young’un ya know. LOL
