Episode 21 – Lenny Bruce – I Am Not a Nut, Elect Me! – With Matt Besser

If you think of Lenny Bruce, you probably think of the guy who took on censorship and was a martyr for the cause of free speech.  Maybe you’ve seen the movie “Lenny” and associate him with Dustin Hoffman’s huggable heroin addict.  Your first thought might not be that Lenny Bruce was a guy who told jokes.  And that’s why we’re here.

Luckily, this week we’ve got backup, in the form of Matt Besser, master improviser and brilliant comedic actor.  Though he might not point you to this album to discover Lenny Bruce, this is the album that clearly blew his mind and was integral in his understanding of his own craft.  Listen in, listen up, and check this album out.
