RIP ROBIN WILLIAMS
(1951 – 2014)
“Robin Williams made me laugh so many times. So many times. When I was a kid, having problems of my own, feeling unpleasantly different from the people who populated my world, I found sanctuary watching this guy on TV who was celebrated for being a weirdo, for being an oddball, for being silly. He was praised for having a mind that produced delightful absurdities with great speed. No one told him to be quiet. No one tried to make him act like everyone else. He was a hero to me.” – Paul F. Tompkins
Who was Lenny Bruce?
Lenny Bruce is most often known as a pioneer in the industry but for me he was much more. He was my father.
He had a connection with his audience and 42 years later it still exists. My hope for the website is to honor my father and what he stood for.
His undying belief in the first amendment and standing up and speaking about racism and bigotry all the social viruses that existed and still do.
This is a different time. We can make a difference and make this a happier kinder and gentler world. He was so funny, Enjoy what you read, see and hear.
