First Mark Rich, Now This Lenny Bruce is in the news today.

Bruce is one of those people whose name gets dropped all the time, and yet his groundbreaking comedy is, I suspect, seen a lot less often than it's discussed.

This concert film is a good introduction to his unique brand of social commentary. (The "Thank You, Masked Man" cartoon at the end is particularly memorable.) Check it out.
