I’m Not A Comedian…I’m Lenny Bruce officially opened November 4 and is presented by Just Words Productions, LLC, in association with Theatre 68, and Lenny Bruce’s daughter, Kitty Bruce.

A portion of this show's proceeds will go to the Lenny Bruce Memorial Foundation. For tickets and more information visit
