Would you consider the audio edition of How to Talk Dirty and Influence People to be better than the print version?
I enjoyed the honesty and humor that Lenny Bruce portrayed. He went through a lot of trials and somehow through his interpretation, he did it with clarify, humor, and a bit of leveled hope.
What did you like best about this story?
This was one book that was on the wishful bookshelf for a long time. I understood Mr. Bruce to be pioneer of comedy. However, I now know him as someone who fought very hard for freedom of speech and ideals. In many ways, He reminds the reader to be very aware of the message he is sending but also delivers to be honest about one's shortcomings and mistakes.
Which character – as performed by Ronnie Marmo – was your favorite?
I found that Mr Bruce had a way of describing the events in his life like catching up with old friend. Better yet, his delivery sometimes came more off as a confession in someone he could trust. Although I know the history of this book to be originally publicized through Playboy, I will still what secrets he has confided in me to myself. :D
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
I think it would be a stretch to find something wrong about the performance but if there must something: I guess I say that he read Lenny Bruce's song All Alone rather than sing it.
Any additional comments?
I first saw this when I first saw 'Pump up the Volume'. I wish I had a chance to get to it earlier.

A really compelling story. Overall I really enjoyed it but after a while Reich's attempt at impersonation becomes annoying. He sounds nothing like Bruce and more like Larry from the Three Stooges.
