Digitally remastered edition of this groundbreaking album from the controversial comedian. Lenny Bruce was an American stand-up comedian, social critic, satirist, and screenwriter. He was renowned for his open, free-style and critical form of comedy which integrated satire, politics, religion, sex, and vulgarity. The lion's share of this second full-length release, The Sick Humor of Lenny Bruce (1959), seems to have been gleaned from a bountiful cache of recordings that Bruce documented during a multi-week run at the infamous Ann's 440 Club in San Francisco in the spring of 1958. Following the path of his debut LP, the artist's irreverence - which would by most modern accounts be considered inflammatory, racist, sexist, bigoted, and otherwise socially unacceptable - is captured on the stage as well as on the inventive studio-prepared piece of "poetry in jazz" mental wordplay titled "Psychopathia Sexualis."
