dc.description.abstract Presented here is a digital version of a recording of a portion of a Lenny Bruce performance at The Berkeley Community Theatre on December 12, 1965. The show is known as The Berkeley Concert. This file continues from LB_18 and constitutes part four of four quarters (although without a definitive ending to the show). Bruce wonders Are there any real tits left? Damn your silicone. He misses something about women: lipstick and powder. He proposes writing a dating advice book in which the advice is terrible. He does No Guy Ever Cheated on His Wife/Guys Detach. He loses his place, then continues to Custody/Get Even, Divorce, and Deny It. He claims he's Ralph J. Gleason (the San Francisco Chronicle writer who was a friend and supporter). He does a bit about Alaska, talks about the practice of using monkey glands for rejuvenation, then speculates on body parts being harvested and the moral issues that brings up. The recording ends during the bit. Some of this part of the show can also be found on LB_54a. The entire concert can be found on file LB_61a.
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.
