It isn't just that these pieces are dated. I'm old enough to understand the old references. It's that they weren't funny in the first place, except for the insane poem about the man who marries a horse.

Enjoyed reading these stories in his own words. If you don't want to read about his legal problems, this isn't the book for you. Much of the book is related to the trials.

As a bookseller in my prior life, I sold quite a few of books related to Lenny, and always meant to read more about him. I'd seen his performances online and reading this book brought me back to them; just watched the Hefner Playboy 1959 video- wow...

Some douche saw me reading this at work and told me he liked the book it was based off of. Off of which it was based. Whatever. I quit that job.

Not quite so funny in transcription as in person, of course. Mr. Cohen has chosen wisely, and the biographical information is quite useful.
