Lenny Bruce may not be widely know today, aside from as a "sick" comic, but he remains an influence on any comedian who tackles serious, taboo topics and generates controversy. Bruce went after some of the big ones-religion, sex, politics- and often used explicit language, which got him branded as obscene and let to multiple arrests and trials. This autobiography, published shortly before his untimely death in 1966, is one of the best introductions to this key cultural figure (he's on the cover of "Sgt. Pepper's); by turns, funny, insightful, tragic, and revealing. Few comics before or since have combinded such an idiosyncratic sense of humor with a genuine, piercing satiric view. "I am part of everything I indict."
