"I read this book for the first time when I was twelve years old. It made me want to be in showbiz, have a lot of sex, and be Jewish. I've rethought that last one." -Penn Jillette, author of God No!

"Outside every American comedy club there ought to be a statue of Lenny Bruce - the type of big bronze statue that commemorates and immortalizes heroes... Bringing Bruce's ideas and stories to a new generation might just be the next best thing to erecting those bronze statues." - Playboy, 8/3/16
"Sheds light on the mind behind some of the most controversial comedy routines of the mid-20th century." -Spectrum Culture
