Lenny Bruce

This is quite some tape here…sociologically too…

Lenny was a genius of course…

If you watch all the parts, Jonathan Winters even gets a shout out.

He’s a little shaky in the beginning, then starts to roll baby…and we learn some things about a real comedian’s motivations…

And they laughed and laughed…
