LENNY BRUCE IS BACK is a one man piece of scripted theatre, primarily comedic in design, that through the format and feel of stand up comedy takes a look at one of the art form's most controversial figures. Through the premise of Bruce coming back from the dead to deliver the set he never had the opportunity to deliver in life, this biographical as well as culturally insightful show profiles stand up comedy's most infamous figure who challenged the perceptions of the purpose of comedy and is thought of by many as the satirical equivalent of a martyr, vilified in life and sainted in death for the path he paved for comedians and individuals alike regarding the freedom of speech.
