Bio: Leonard Alfred Schneider, better known by the stage name Lenny Bruce, was an American comedian, social critic and satirist. His 1964 conviction in an obscenity trial was followed by a posthumous pardon, the first in New York state history. He was renowned for his open, free-style, dangerous and critical form of comedy which integrated politics, religion, and sex.
Quote of the day
“Sound is naught but broken air, And every speech that is spoken, Loud or privily, foul or fair, In its substance is but air; For as flame is but lighted smoke, So sound is air that is broken.”
