So take a break from writing that-soon-to-go-viral post that we all have in us,
“For, No Profit Grows Where is no Pleasure Ta’en”
And since I slacked off on Yesterday’s ‘Two For Tuesday’, Here is Sarah Now, but be thee forewarned: This may offend some in the audience. (Ha! Who am I kidding!? If you have stayed with TT&H this long, well you probably are not so easily offended)
Here is more from his video recorded performance and yes, most of it is esoteric.
The only video of Lenny (real good video) is from when he was near death. He was most assuredly not at his ‘best’.
But this is all we have.
So we must run with it, because, in my not-so-humble-opinion, his worst was better than the best of Cable Guy, Foxworthy, and even fellow-Texan, Ron White. But that is just me. The only ones who can compare in my mind are George Carlin and Richard Pryor, and possibly Sarah Silverman or Sandra Bernhard.
This is very early Lenny: before he hit his stride, but since I am going to continue to subject any willing readers, I thought I would mix things up a bit, not going for the low-fruit, which is the really great edgy shit he did years later.
This one is from the Steve Allen Show, which I believe I had mentioned in an earlier post.
It is not too bad, although it is not representative of the Lenny most know (and love). But you can experience the wonder of the evolution of Bruce without his having to use profanity, which I still protest he always used sparingly and never gratuitously.
(I like it more when he talks ‘dirty’, I must confess. Hahahha)
