The anniversary of the death of a counter-culture iconoclast yesterday, here’s another one today – Lenny Bruce. Why Did Lenny Bruce Die? – a 1966 biographical audio-documentary from Capitol Records, including excerpts from Lenny’s performances, plus interview segments with family, friends, and legal experts, seeks to answer that question. Compiled and produced by Lawrence Schiller. Narration written by Richard Warren Lewis
Here’s a recording of the Memorial Service that took place for him at Judson Church in New York a few weeks after his death (Allen participated and read a poem for him)
A trailblazer for free speech, lover, truth-teller, hipster supreme, Lenny will never be forgotten.
