dc.description.abstract Presented here is a digital version of a recording of a compilation tape of Lenny Bruce bits on the subject of drug use. The dates and venues are not known. The first seven clips are variations on his routine on marijuana, which states: that he doesn't smoke it because it's a shloyfedicher (sleep-inducing, in Yiddish) high; that it will be legal in five to ten years because current law students, who will become legislators, smoke it; and that if doctors did a study of an alcoholic and a pot addict over ten years, the alcoholic would be in much worse shape. In the third and sixth clip he mentions The Chronicle, which would place the performances in San Francisco. The eighth clip features the marijuana material, a bit about medication, his routine Airplane Glue, and a bit about an old Jewish man buying Zig Zag rolling papers. The ninth and tenth clips are variations on Airplane Glue, with the kid who sniffs glue appearing on Paul Coates' tabloid TV show. The tenth clip is truncated, ending during the bit. The bit continues on file LB_46b.
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.
