Ленни Брюс — американский сатирик, мастер юмористической импровизации, автор книг, статей и пластинок, получивший известность в 1950—1960 годах. Смелость суждений, образ жизни, аресты и скандальные судебные разбирательства, обстоятельства смерти обеспечили Ленни Брюсу культовую посмертную популярность, не в последнюю очередь — среди рок-музыкантов, многие из которых называли его в числе основных влияний.


„Every day people are straying away from the church and going back to God. Каждый день мы все больше отдаляемся от церкви и возвращаемся к Богу.“

„Если бы Иисуса казнили двадцать лет назад, дети в католических школах носили бы на шеях вместо крестов маленькие электрические стульчики.“


„There are never enough 'I love you's.“

„Every day people are straying away from the church and going back to God.“

„If you can't say "Fuck" you can't say, "Fuck the government.“

„If Jesus had been killed twenty years ago, Catholic school children would be wearing little electric chairs around their necks instead of crosses.“

„The 'what should be' never did exist, but people keep trying to live up to it. There is no 'what should be,' there is only what is.“

„The only honest art form is laughter, comedy. You can't fake it... try to fake three laughs in an hour -- ha ha ha ha ha -- they'll take you away, man. You can't.“


„Satire is tragedy plus time. You give it enough time, the public, the reviewers will allow you to satirize it. Which is rather ridiculous, when you think about it.“ The Essential Lenny Bruce: his original unexpurgated satirical routines

„Liberals can understand everything but people
who don't understand them.“

„I am influenced by every second of my waking hour.“ How to Talk Dirty and Influence People

„Take away the right to say ‘fuck’ and you take away the right to say ‘fuck the government.“


„If you live in New York, even if you're Catholic, you're Jewish“

„There is only what is and that's it. What should be is a dirty lie.“ How to Talk Dirty and Influence People

„I won't say ours was a tough school, but we had our own coroner. We used to write essays like "What I'm Going to be If I Grow Up“

„You are a white. The Imperial Wizard. Now, if you don't think this is logic you can burn me on the fiery cross. This is the logic: You have the choice of spending fifteen years married to a woman, a black woman or a white woman. Fifteen years kissing and hugging and sleeping real close on hot nights. With a black, black woman or a white, white woman. The white woman is Kate Smith. And the black woman is Lena Horne. So you're not concerned with black or white anymore, are you? You are concerned with how cute or how pretty. Then let's really get basic and persecute ugly people!“
