Haven't seen that yet, Ratso Tizzo would be alright as Lenny dying on the terlet. There's at least one of Lenny's LP's around, very funny bits, some of them paraphrased in the book or vice versa - the used car saleesman offering for sale a Volkswagen that had been used for taking people to the gas chambers, sort of torn upholstery from people clawing it, another car last used for a suicide pact, a little lipstick around the exhaust pipe? Bad man, that Lenny. Wonder what he'd think of Howard Stern. Prolly defend his exercise of freee speech. So would those of us who've seen Howard go after George Bush.Originally posted by Nicole Marie:
I'm determined to get people reading...
I'm re-reading Lenny Bruce's How to Talk Dirty and Influence People for the 17th time. Has anyone else read it? What do you think? Also I'd love some other suggestions on Bruce. I heard the movie of Bruce, I think it was Hoffman who played him, is amazing. Has anyone seen it?
