Bruce couldn't believe he was being continuously arrested for his words. Bruce chose to ignore the irony that these same tapes contained many of the bits that got him arrested in the first place. To Is a Preposition, Come Is a Verb is not only an early representation of the type of humor that would open the door for Richard Pryor, Sam Kinison, George Carlin, and many others, but more importantly provides a dangerous glimpse into the world of censorship and where it can lead.
This album is a great introduction to the humor of Lenny Bruce. Mostly short bits with punch lines. And not as political as some of his other recordings. But hysterically funny. This is the album I used to play to introduce him to people who were unaware of his humor. Some of these routines are absolutely side splitting and a few went on to become Bruce staples. Listen to these recordings and you'll have to hear more. The man was funny on so many levels.
1 Background The song "Flower Punk" parodies the garage rock staple "Hey Joe", and depicts a youth going to San Francisco to become a flower child and join a psychedelic rock band. Additionally, the track makes a reference to "Wild Thing", one of the songs that defined the counterculture of that period Packaging.
