The Comedy Underground Presents "Heirs of Lenny Bruce" starring JIM SHORT
Lenny Bruce was the first comedian to bring social and political satire to the comedy stage, pushing the envelope and challenging audience preconceptions of what stand-up comedy could be.  He forever changed it - was the inspiration for George Carlin, who once shared a paddy wagon with him after an obscenity bust in San Francisco.  In our series "The Comedy Underground Presents The Heirs of Lenny Bruce" at the Admiral Theater in West Seattle, we present contemporary comedians who embody the spirit of Mr. Bruce through their performance.

Jim Short is a brilliant social satirist who brings a unique perspective; he was born in Australia of British parents, but grew up in Houston Texas and now resides in San Francisco.  He is a former winner of the prestigious San Francisco Comedy Competition, and has been seen on "Late Night with David Letterman" and "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson."

Lenny Bruce died of a drug overdose on August 6, 1968, 40 years ago; his place in history is as a comedy innovator and defender of the 1st Amendment.

No comedian in the U.S. since has been convicted of obscenity.
