The Golden Age Of Sniffing Glue
This was Lenny Bruce in his prime, before his career was destroyed by prosecutors and cops nationwide, and then his life destroyed by his heroin addiction. Bruce influenced many comics, and you can see where George Carlin got some of his moves. But the loose, jazzy style that Bruce made his own was borrowed from Joe Ancis, who held court at Hansen's Cafeteria in Manhattan, and wowed younger comics like Bruce and Rodney Dangerfield with his extended riffs, insults, and strange observations. Ancis never performed on-stage, but his spirit lived in Bruce's act. Crazy.
