The Comedian Who Changed My Life Is Lenny Bruce


The Comedian Who Changed My Life is a new series where comics talk about, you guessed it, the comedian who changed their life.

The comedian who changed my life, changed the lives of a lot of people and that was Lenny Bruce. I saw him in Chicago at The Gate of Horn I was 19 years old, I still had a kippah, a little hat on because I was at a Yeshiva. I couldn’t get over…it wasn’t that he was that funny. It’s just how brilliant he was and how he used images and language and how ahead of the political time he was. I saw that and I said wow, I’ve got to figure out how this works. Lenny Bruce.
