About the Author

Lenny Bruce (1925-1966) was a stand-up comedian, social critic, satirist, and screenwriter. His 1964 trial for obscenity (and posthumous pardon) is seen as a landmark for freedom of speech in the United States.

Reviews

Praise for How to Talk Dirty and Influence People "I read this book for the first time when I was twelve years old. It made me want to be in showbiz, have a lot of sex, and be Jewish. I've rethought that last one."--Penn Jillette, author of God No! "If there was a God, then he sent down Lenny Bruce to create the art form of modern stand-up comedy. He sought the truth fearlessly and hilariously until his tragically muffled First Amendment rights surely enabled his dying for our sins."--Richard Lewis, author of The Other Great Depression Playboy, 8/3/16 "Outside every American comedy club there ought to be a statue of Lenny Bruce--the type of big bronze statue that commemorates and immortalizes heroes...Bringing Bruce's ideas and stories to a new generation might just be the next best thing to erecting those bronze statues." Spectrum Culture, 10/11/16 "Sheds light on the mind behind some of the most controversial comedy routines of the mid-20th century."
