    Another excellent discussion! I think I was lucky to have picked up on Lenny Bruce when I did...I'd first read about him when I was ten or so, and first heard him on the Fantasy Records lps when I was 14, having picked up on most of his contemporaries who had recorded records by that age as well (is it indicative of Changing Times that I found THE BEST OF LENNY BRUCE and LENNY BRUCE, AMERICAN in my high school library's "media center"?). Because I was fascinate by a lot of the same sorts of pop culture as he was, I was able to catch on to those references better than some (Marc Maron has mentioned being left cold by the Bruce recordings when listening to them as a teen; others have gone on, in something completely unlike my experience, about how little of Bruce's material is actually funny...but de gustibus, of course). And, being in my late '40s now means I was around to see Richard Pryor's tv work in context, and the concert films, if not any nightclub gigs, of course...and I caught MARK TWAIN TONIGHT probably on repeat broadcasts, though I was a Twain head from an early age. As you know, he was a comedic lecturer, part of why Holbrook assembles the shows he does...Twain was essentially very much like a standup for chunks of his career, though he (correctly) saw himself as doing something a bit more sophisticated, in print and in person, than such others as Artemus Ward (the guy the Ross Martin character in WILD WILD WEST is named for). Many of Twain's earlier books, the travelogs mostly, string together anecdotes and jokes and memoirs much in the manner of the Holbrook lectures (and the Twain lectures they recall). I once saw a weak Holbrook imitator die hard before an audience at my high school (the same one with the Bruce albums, in Hawaii)...rather sad.

    Good stuff, and glad to be made aware of Kondabolu and his work (liked the Chipotle bit). And, again, if you'd like some relatively upbeat Vonnegut, I continue to recommend BLUEBEARD, which suggests that even our work might not last, but that really might not be that important (a recurring KV theme), if we're having at least some good times while we're kicking (which he didn't get around to noting as often)...
