WELCOME one and all to the Crooked Back Whackers Anonymous Association.
The [appallingly] ONE and ONLY Lenny Bruce community on Livejournal.
I am the... figure of authority here. Meaning I will set the rules.

I'll be posting bits and pieces of Lenny's words [when you least expect it or whenever i feel like it]in a segment entitled "LENNY SAYS."
Now, for some words ON Lenny, by the venerable Steve Allen:
"Lenny always seemed to me the first of the modern comedians. Before him, Nightclub comedy was limited to a few established formulas. Some comedians did an endless string of jokes - Henny Youngman, Morey Amsterdam, Rodney Dangerfield. Others told funny stories - Danny Thomas, Myron Cohen, Lou Holtz. A third category worked out of a musical context, like Jimmy Durante. But Lenny broke entirely new ground. He commented on the world around him, and, since he had the sensitivity of a philosopher plus a superior intelligence, the things he says were always insightful."
