An undisputed comic legend, Lenny Bruce was one of the greatest artists of the 20th Century. His life and work have had an impact on poetry, politics, music, film and, of course, comedy. Bruce’s tempestuous personal and professional life was marked by great passion and great pain. His unwavering commitment to free speech led to numerous obscenity charges and arrests, fighting all the way to the Supreme Court.
