Picture of the Day: Lenny Bruce. By Geniusofdespair

1960 Album Cover - Lenny Bruce's Standup Comedy Act

This is a 1960 Lenny Bruce Album Cover. Lenny is the comedian that was always getting arrested for indecent humor. He pushed all the boundaries. Note the album cover and you might understand his humor and how radical he actually was. Remember it is 1960.
Even more racism then we have now. Alabama’s Governor George Wallace was leading the South’s fight against federally ordered racial integration in the 60s. This cover is funny and radical in so many ways, note the Lincoln statue in the center.
Lenny Bruce was a man before his time.
Note the arms and hands of all the people in the white KKK robes
Here is the first side of the album if you want to hear him do his act:

 The last 4 minutes of side one: "My Trip to Miami" at 24:20 on the counter.

Need More: Side 2.  
Last segment of Side 2: "My Governor" Earl Long 22:50 on the counter. Sounds a lot like Trump.
