Lenny Bruce
Let me tell you the truth. The truth is what is, and what should be is a fantasy. A terrible, terrible lie that someone gave to the people long ago.
Bruce quotes
I want to perform an unnatural act.
Bruce
For Halloween, I want to be Lenny Bruce, I want them to hate me, so you can love me on the sly.




Bruce Lenny quotes
I'm not a comedian. I'm Lenny Bruce.
Bruce Lenny
Lenny Bruce's legacy is freedom of speech and telling it as it is, getting your life and putting it out on the table, telling everyone about it.
Lenny Bruce quotes
Lenny Bruce, declares a truce and plays his other hand. Marshall McLuhan, casual viewin', head buried in the sand.
Lenny Bruce
Mother Goose is on the loose, stealing lines from Lenny Bruce.
Bruce Lenny quotes
And I learned the truth from Lenny Bruce,
That all my wealth won't buy me health
So I smoke a pint of tea a day.
Bruce
A Jew, in the dictionary, is one who is descended from the ancient tribes of Judea, or one who is regarded as a descendant from that tribe. That's what it says in the dictionary, but you and I know what a Jew is: One Who Killed Our Lord... there should be a statute of limitations for that crime.
Bruce Lenny
Take away the right to say "fuck" and you take away the right to say "fuck the government."
Lenny Bruce
The role of a comedian is to make the audience laugh, at a minimum of once every fifteen seconds.




Lenny Bruce quotes
Lenny Bruce was trying to tell you many things before he died...
Lenny Bruce
Are there any niggers here tonight? Could you turn on the house lights, please, and could the waiters and waitresses just stop serving, just for a second? And turn off this spot. Now what did he say? "Are there any niggers here tonight?" I know there's one nigger, because I see him back there working. Let's see, there's two niggers. And between those two niggers sits a kyke. And there's another kykeó that's two kykes and three niggers. And there's a spic. Right? Hmm? There's another spic. Ooh, there's a wop; there's a polack; and, oh, a couple of greaseballs. And there's three lace-curtain Irish micks. And there's one, hip, thick, hunky, funky, boogie. Boogie boogie. Mm-hmm. I got three kykes here, do I hear five kykes? I got five kykes, do I hear six spics, I got six spics, do I hear seven niggers? I got seven niggers. Sold American. I pass with seven niggers, six spics, five micks, four kykes, three guineas, and one wop. Well, I was just trying to make a point, and that is that it's the suppression of the word that gives it the power, the violence, the viciousness. Dig: if President Kennedy would just go on television, and say, "I would like to introduce you to all the niggers in my cabinet," and if he'd just say "nigger nigger nigger nigger nigger" to every nigger he saw, "boogie boogie boogie boogie boogie," "nigger nigger nigger nigger nigger" 'til nigger didn't mean anything anymore, then you could never make some six-year-old black kid cry because somebody called him a nigger at school.
Bruce quotes
You can't put tits and ass on the marquee!...Why not?...Because it's dirty and vulgar, that's why not!... Titties are dirty and vulgar?...Okay, we'll compromise. How about Latin? Gluteus maximus, pectoralis majors nightly...That's alright, that's clean, class with ass, I'll buy it...Clean to you, schmuck, but dirty to the Latins!
Bruce Lenny
If something about the human body disgusts you, the fault lies with the manufacturer.
Bruce Lenny quotes
That's great, it starts with an earthquake, birds and snakes, an aeroplane - Lenny Bruce is not afraid.
Lenny Bruce
I want to be Lenny Bruce.
