Lenny Bruce on the Steve Allen show

By Kenneth Rainey. Filed under: OffTopic, TweedBlog, video.

So much of the available footage of Lenny is from his last years, when he looked and sounded worn down from his legal troubles and drug abuse. It’s a rare treat to see him younger and sharper in this Steve Allen Show appearance. If you’ve not read it, I recommend Lenny’s autobiography, How to Talk Dirty and Influence People.
