Lenny Bruce: Swear to Tell the Truth” [Documentary] (Video)

Lenny Bruce was easily the most controversial stand-up comic of his generation. Tackling subjects that were not common fodder for humorists in the mid-1950′s ‒ religious hypocrisy, the power of forbidden language, sexual obsessions and hang-ups, racism, drugs, and the absurdity of the American cultural landscape ‒ Bruce created hilarious but cutting satire that made many people laugh, but also made many people angry. “Lenny Bruce: Swear to Tell the Truth” chronicles his early days as a clean if eccentric stand-up performer through his eventual “liberation”, performing edgier material (with looser language) at strip joints and jazz clubs, and his many legal battles over obscenity and drugs that made him all but unemployable in the last few years leading up to his untimely death in 1966.

:) You know I don't think anyone is really ever ahead of their time. There's only the eternal Present, But since most of us are stuck in the past, those who are more closely dialed into the "now"; they happen to appear relatively futuristic by comparison.

Thanks for posting this. Lenny Bruce blazed the trail for so many other famous creative people. He was highly controversial and a creative giant. LONG LIVE LENNY BRUCE!!!
