Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2006-08-09
Classic highly influential comedy from the 60’s. Fifth in a box-set of six that span his career, this one is rich with storytelling, the Lenny Bruce skit comedy that he was so good at, that broke his fame in the 50’s. Great stuff, heavy on the subjects that got him arrested and subsequently blacklisted by the entertainment industry (for fighting back in court): definition of “dirty”, being framed for drugs, etc.

1) Religion: origins of sexual shame
2) taxation, entertainers income versus school teachers, courtroom skit rips entertainers of the day
3) “what I was arrested for…by an illiterate Yiddish cop”, defining “schmuck”
4) reading of a court document describing what he was arrested for
5) the ethics of Pissing In The Sink
6) goyish versus jewish, hilarious
7) having the cops break down his hotel room door looking for drugs, trip to the hospital for being “on drugs”
8) “tits and ass” in Vegas
9) spousal abuse, jewish-italian abuse 10) hot lead enema, selling out your country, life mag photo of Jackie O. 11) dick Gregory talks about attending the March On Washington
12) rather low fi recording of brilliant stuff lampooning “liberals” who claim to not be racist, census taking, general bigotry
13) starts with Goldwater/Nixon jabbing “jewish names?”, then a whole take on beastiality
14) “nigger-oh”, LBJ cant say the word “negro”, awesome
15) perverts, pissing, breast augmentation scams
16) laws
17) playing in Milwaukee, middle America reaction
18) marijuana comment, sorta abstract, brief
19) low fi hidden mic recording, backstage, some nice sax at end but not much else
