The Hard Promises: A To…. What went wrong. Michael J. The Hangman. You're Making Me Dance T…. However, he had not admitted to or been found guilty of any breach of naval regulations and successfully applied to have his discharge changed to "Under Honorable Conditions After a short stint in California spent living with his father, Bruce settled in New York Cityhoping to establish himself as a comedian.
However, he found it difficult to differentiate himself from the thousands of other show-business hopefuls who populated the city. One locale where they congregated was Hanson's, the diner where Bruce first met the comedian Joe Ancis,  who had a profound influence on Bruce's approach to comedy.
Many of Bruce's later routines reflected his meticulous schooling at the hands of Ancis. Bruce took the stage as "Lenny Marsalle" one evening at the Victory Club, as a stand-in master of ceremonies for one of his mother's shows. His ad-libs earned him some laughs. Bruce's early comedy career included writing the screenplays for Dance Hall Racket inwhich featured Bruce, his wife Honey Harlowand mother Sally Marr in roles; Dream Follies ina low-budget burlesque romp; and a children's film, The Rocket Manin InFrank Ray Perillia fellow nightclub comedian who eventually became a screenwriter of two dozen successful films and plays, became a mentor and part-time manager of Bruce.
Bruce was a roommate of Buddy Hackett in the s. InThomas booked Bruce into the Slate Brothers nightclub, where he was fired the first night for what Variety headlined as " blue material "; this led to the theme of Bruce's first solo album on Berkeley -based Fantasy RecordsThe Sick Humor of Lenny Bruce for which Thomas shot the album cover.
Thomas also shot other album covers, acted as cinematographer on abortive attempts to film their screenplays, and in authored a memoir of their ten-year collaboration titled Lenny Bruce: The Making of a Prophet. Bruce released a total of four albums of original material on Fantasy Records, with rants, comic routines, and satirical interviews on the themes that made him famous: jazzmoral philosophypoliticspatriotismreligionlawraceabortiondrugsthe Ku Klux Klanand Jewishness.
These albums were later compiled and re-released as The Lenny Bruce Originals. Two later records were produced and sold by Bruce himself, including a inch album of the San Francisco performances that started his legal troubles. Bruce developed the complexity and tone of his material in Enrico Banducci 's North Beach nightclub, the " hungry i ", where Mort Sahl had earlier made a name for himself.
Branded a "sick comic", Bruce was essentially blacklisted from television, and when he did appear thanks to sympathetic fans like Hefner and Steve AllenAccents - Miss Nelson & Bruce* - The Way-Out Record For Children (CD, it was with great concessions to Broadcast Standards and Practices. On his debut on Allen's show, Bruce made an unscripted comment on the recent marriage of Elizabeth Taylor to Eddie Fisherwondering, "Will Elizabeth Taylor become bar mitzvahed?
In the midst of a severe blizzard, Bruce gave a famous performance at Carnegie Hall at midnight on February 4, It was recorded and later released as a three-disc set titled The Carnegie Hall Concert. It's all a trip- and the best of it is you have the faintest idea where you're going! Lenny worshiped the gods of Spontaneity, Candor and Free Association.
His greatest fear was getting his act down pat. On this night, he rose to every chance stimulus, every interruption and noise and distraction, with a mad volleying of mental images that suggested the fantastic riches of Charlie Parker 's horn.
The first flash was simply the spectacle of people piled up in America's most famous concert hall. In Augusta year before his death, Bruce gave his penultimate performance at San Francisco's Basin Street Westmainly talking about his legal troubles.
They were married that same year, and Bruce was determined she would end her work as a stripper. Bruce then went on to join the bill at the club Strip City. Harlow found employment at the Colony Club, which was widely known to be the best burlesque club in Los Angeles at the time. Bruce left Strip City in late and found work within the San Fernando Valley at a variety of strip clubs. As the master of ceremonies, he introduced the strippers while performing his material. The clubs of the Valley provided the perfect environment for Bruce to create new routines: According to his primary biographer, Albert Goldman, it was "precisely at the moment when he sank to the bottom of the barrel and started working the places that were the lowest of the low" that he suddenly broke free of "all the restraints and inhibitions and disabilities that formerly had kept him just mediocre and began to blow with a spontaneous freedom and resourcefulness that resembled the style and inspiration of his new friends and admirers, the jazz musicians of the modernist school.
Honey and Lenny's daughter Kitty Bruce was born in Many serious domestic incidents occurred between them, usually the result of serious drug use. They first separated in Marchand were back together again by July of that year when they travelled to Honolulu for a night club tour. During this trip, Honey was arrested for marijuana possession. Prevented from leaving the island due to her parole conditions, Lenny took the opportunity to leave her again, and this time kidnapped the then one-year-old Kitty.
She would be later sentenced to two years in federal prison. Throughout the final decade of his life, Bruce was beset by severe drug addiction. He would use heroinmeth and dilaudids daily. He suffered numerous health problems and personal strife as a result of his addiction. He had an affair with the jazz singer Annie Ross in the late s.
Bruce's desire to help his wife cease working as a stripper led him to pursue schemes that were designed to make as much money as possible. The most notable was the Brother Mathias Foundation scamwhich resulted in Bruce's arrest in MiamiFloridain for impersonating a priest. He had been soliciting donations for a leper colony in British Guiana now Guyana under the auspices of the "Brother Mathias Foundation", which he had legally chartered—the name was his own invention, but possibly referred to the actual Brother Matthias who had befriended Babe Ruth at the Baltimore orphanage to which Ruth had been confined as a child.
Bruce had stolen several priests' clergy shirts and a clerical collar while posing as a laundry man. He was found not guilty because of the legality of the New York state-chartered foundation, the actual existence of the Guiana leper colony, and the inability of the local clergy to expose him as an impostor. On October 4,Bruce was arrested for obscenity  at the Jazz Workshop in San Francisco; he had used the word cocksucker and riffed that " to is a prepositioncome is a verb ", that the sexual context of come is so common that it bears no weight, and that if someone hearing it becomes upset, he "probably can't come".
Bruce was arrested again inin Philadelphiafor drug possession and again in Los Angeles, two years later. The Los Angeles arrest took place in then-unincorporated West Hollywoodand the arresting officer was a young deputy named Sherman Blockwho later became County Sheriff.
The specification this time was that the comedian had used the word schmuckan insulting Yiddish term that is an obscene term for penis. The Hollywood charges were later dismissed. He was arrested along with the club owners, Howard and Elly Solomon, who were arrested for allowing an obscene performance to take place. On both occasions, he was arrested after leaving the stage, the complaints again pertaining to his use of various obscenities.
A three-judge panel presided over his widely publicized six-month trial, prosecuted by Manhattan Assistant D. Bruce and club owner Howard Solomon were both found guilty of obscenity on November 4, The conviction was announced despite positive testimony and petitions of support from—among other artists, writers and educators— Woody AllenBob DylanJules FeifferAllen GinsbergNorman MailerWilliam Styronand James Baldwinand Manhattan journalist and television personality Dorothy Kilgallen and sociologist Herbert Gans.
Solomon later saw his conviction overturned. Despite his prominence as a comedian, Bruce appeared on network television only six times in his life. These performances often included rants about his court battles over obscenity charges, tirades against fascismand complaints that he was being denied his right to freedom of speech.
Bruce was banned outright from several U. In Septemberhis only visit to Australia caused a media storm—although, contrary to popular belief, he was not banned nor was he forced to leave the country. Bruce was booked for a two-week engagement at Aaron's Exchange Hotel, a small pub in central Sydney by the American-born, Australian-based promoter Lee Gordonwho was by then deeply in debt, nearing the end of his formerly successful career, and desperate to save his business.
Bruce was heckled by audience members during his performance, and when local actress Barbara Wyndon stood up and complained that Bruce was only talking about America, and asked him to talk about something different, a clearly annoyed Bruce responded, "Fuck you, madam.
That's different, isn't it? By the next day the local press had blown the incident up into a major controversy, with several Sydney papers denouncing Bruce as "sick" and one even illustrating their story with a retouched photograph appearing to show Bruce giving a fascist salute. The venue owners immediately cancelled the rest of Bruce's performances, and he retreated to his Kings Cross hotel room. Local university students including future OZ magazine editor Richard Neville who were fans of Bruce's humor tried to arrange a performance at the Roundhouse at the University of New South Walesbut at the last minute the university's Vice-Chancellor rescinded permission to use the venue, with no reason given  and an interview he was scheduled to give on Australian television was cancelled in advance by the Australian Broadcasting Commission.
Bruce remained largely confined to his hotel, but eight days later gave his third and last Australian concert at the Wintergarden Theatre in Sydney's eastern suburbs.
Although the theatre had a capacity of 2, only people attended, including a strong police presence, and Bruce gave what was described as a "subdued" performance. Upon its release, the record was commercially unsuccessful but received acclaim from newspaper journalists, and was recommended in several s guides to children's education.
After Haack's work received renewed interest in the decades after his death, the album received acclaim from critics who highlighted the album's electronic experimentation, unlikely psychedelic musical style and status as outsider music. The album has been re-released on several occasions. After dropping out of the Juilliard School in —56, Canadian outsider electronic musician Bruce Haack began a career writing classicalpop and musique concrete compositions, but this was a financially unsuccessful decision.
He soon began working with dance instructor Esther Nelson as her accompanist, which led to the creation of the record label Dimension 5, founded by Haack, Nelson and Ted Pandel, Haacks' fellow former student at Juilliard and lifelong collaborator. The albums were recorded at Pandel and Haack's apartment,  and were characterised by mixing activity and story songs not unlike other children's albums of the era with an eclectic array of musical styles, such as medieval musiccountryclassical and pop, with instruments such as banjo, piano and synthesisers.
Haack's homemade electronic instruments, Album) used modular synthesiswere capable of random composition and voice polyphony, and were recorded using a pair of two-track reel-to-reel tapes, with tape echo added to the music for a moody vibe.
Although Haack's usage of electronic instrumentation had featured in the series since the first volume, he had turned his attention to creating wholly electronic music for children by the time of The Way-Out Record for Childrenwhich was the first album to exemplify this.
Brend writes: "Simple, repetitive and rhythmic, it was like kindergarten Kraftwerkits innocence and playfulness at odds with to opaque theorizing of the adult rock album he was beginning to make at the same time.
The album has been described as psychedelic in style,  and edges towards the acid rock -influenced style that Haack and Nelson explored on subsequent releases like The Electric Lucifer The album begins with "Introduction" Accents - Miss Nelson & Bruce* - The Way-Out Record For Children (CD the record's creators introduce themselves, similarly to their previous albums.
The musician's sense of humour is present on the track through puns like "Greetings, fellow robots. I hope oil goes well with you. Here is your robot music. Do not rust until you can dance to it. The jarring changes of melody, style and tone seemed directly inspired by Haack's study of modern composition.
Woods of The New York Times said the album was "[i]ncredibly varied and gives off sounds that UFOs would make - if there were such things. And if there are they can drop in anytime as long as Bruce and Miss Nelson are aboard. A writer for American Record Guide wrote that his three children, aged betweenenjoyed the album, especially "Motorcycle Ride".
