dc.description.abstract Presented here is a digital version of a compilation of clips taken from performances by Lenny Bruce in nightclubs. Only one of these is identifiable as to time period and place. The first clip captures in progress Bruce's piece about doctors in old Hollywood movies, and continues with his bit Fay Bainter. The second clip is a bit on how Lawrence Welk's accent and square persona were just a put-on. The third clip is his bit on a Jewish mother in Miami who's the only one who doesn't know her son is gay. The fourth clip is about a bordello in Europe at which the whores and customers dress in costumes. The fifth clip is his bit The Clap and was recorded during Bruce's engagement at the Chicago club The Gate of Horn in November-December 1962. The fifth clip is the bit Chick Singer with a Gimmick.
dc.description.abstract Full length copies of the recordings are available for use in the department. Please contact the Robert D. Farber University Archives & Special Collections Department, Brandeis University for more information.
