We do a second deep dive into Lenny Bruce's album The Carnegie Hall Concert this time joined by special guest writer, comedian, playwright, educator and activist Lara Rae. Lara has spent many years working with some of the greats of comedy and was able to share their encyclopedic knowledge of comedy with some terrific first-hand accounts of talking with people from Lenny's life. It was a real joy to sit with them and we look forward to doing so again in the future.
Jason and Matt sit down talk with Andrew Lizotte to discuss the immensely influential Lenny Bruce and his seminal recording The Carnegie Hall Concert. It's a really deep dive into language, relevance and how many comedians who model their work after Bruce just can't reach what he's attained.
