Today I’m closing a chapter in my life. I’m grateful that I’ve had this funny, colorful show to provide an escape during the trying times. Like Midge, I look forward to the next phase and the new challenges awaiting me. I’m hoping she and Lenny get a happy ending as real life is tough and messy; if we can find some joy from fictional ships, why not let us have it. “Qui vivra verra.”

Two Soho footprints of the late, great Peter Cook..arguably the funniest Englishman to grace this city. Firstly, between 1961 & 1964, he started the Establishment Club. Dudley Moore and himself used to perform to members every night but most famously this is where Lenny Bruce was given his first and only residency until the government banned him from entering the county plus on the second floor is where the famous picture of Christine Keeler, naked, legs either side of a turned around chair were taken! Secondly, in 1961, he allowed ‘Private Eye’ magazine to base themselves at his club & funded it also. This quintessential British publication is recognised for its prominent criticism & lampooning of public figures. Something Cook loved doing and he would be so proud it is still going today! #londoncomedy #comedy #petercook #dudleymoore #soho #londonsoho #londonbylondoners #london_enthusiast #londonlove #london_only #lennybruce

Before his Emmy award-winning role as Lenny Bruce on Mrs. Maisel, Luke played the cool but insecure American actor Jack Crew cast to play Hamlet on the Canadian series Sling & Arrows (2003).😍 #tbt #emmy

The Insomniac (1958-1966) in Hermosa Beach, CA was a #Beatnik coffee house owned by #BobHare ☕️🕶 They closed at 3-4am and had spoken word poetry, comedy and music with performers including #LordBuckley #LennyBruce #VanDykeParks #AllenGinsberg #EdenAhbez #MelCarter #LindaRonstadt #TheChambersBros and many more. Artist #FrankHolmes met Van Dyke Parks there and the result was Holmes designing #TheBeachBoys SMiLE album in 1967. As fate would have it, I designed Brian Wilson’s SMiLE album in 2004 (photo of Frank & I taken at #theinsomniac 2009 anniversary) As with #ShellysManneHole, artist #EarlNewman did a series of #silkscreen posters for the Insomniac. Bob Hare passed away in 2011 #beatgeneration #coffeehouse #madeincalifornia #musichistory #vintagematchbook #vintagelosangeles #vintagematchbooks #matchbookcollector #matchbookart @hermosabeachcity

Lenny (1974) Dir: Bob Fosse DOP: Bruce Surtees Editor: Alan Heim Cutting between his first days as a comedian and the twilight of his career in this Biopic of Lenny Bruce stand up comedian, social satirist, Poet, Warrior, conquistador, romántico. He was known for his improvised verbosity, criticism, freestyle; mixing religious, sex, political and social Tabus. Valerie Perrine as Honey Bruce won a BAFTA, Cannes and NYFCC for her amazing role of the stripper/dancer, that Lenny falls in love with. Beautiful editing, one of the best biopics still powerful and unforgettable to this day. Bob Fosse was better known as a choreographer Director in Broadway working with great productions like Cabaret, Chicago and many more. The movie “all that Jazz” is a biopic on his life equally as energetic to watch. Los 2 primeros actores que saltan a la cabeza cuando le preguntan a la gente, cual es tu Actor 🎭 favorito? son: Al Pacino y Bob de Niro tal vez porque son más masculinos o son la mejor opción. Para mi si son excelentes pero yo digo Dustin Hoffman y Donald Sutherland; en los 60 y 70s todo lo que hacían era oro. Son más versátiles, son excéntricos, para mi mis 2 preferidos de Hollywood desde el 65 hasta casi los 80s. #filmsr4ever #cinemafan #lennybruce #freecinema #welovefilms #moviestowatch #cinema_poetry #dustinhoffman #moviestar #hollywood

Hit show The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is generating a renewed interest in comedy legend Lenny Bruce. I've been nuts for Lenny for years, here is my favorite story about him... He was living in Miami and while performing nights at clubs he was working as a landscaper and not earning enough money. So, he started pretending to be a priest and was soliciting money for a leper colony, taking donations from people on the street. He walked the streets of Miami for weeks, collecting $8,000.00. He was arrested for impersonating a priest but kept at it. Then, he felt guilty about conning people so he did something crazy...he tracked down an actual charity for a leper colony in Guyana and gave them $2,500.00. If you want to learn more about the man who created modern stand up comedy and you're in Chicago, go see "I'm Not A Comedian...I'm Lenny Bruce" at the Royal George Theatre. Starring @ronniemarmo and produced by @joemantegna #theaterinchicago #chicagoartscene #lennybruce #standup #freedomwall #truth
