Lenny Bruce

“I didn’t do it man, I only said it” is perhaps a line that sums up Lenny Bruce better than any other. It was no doubt said in a cool, calm, New York jazz style voice as the officers of the NYPD led him into the back of a paddy wagon, the charge; most likely swearing or stage, taking a shot at the major religious establishments or general vulgarity. If the cops didn’t like what they heard Lenny was arrested. Lenny Bruce was a martyr for free speech and without him comedy and perhaps society in general, might just not have the same freedom to express how we feel about any issue.
