Directed by Elan Gale and produced by Matt Amar and Patrick O’Sullivan, Looking for Lenny delves into the life of Lenny Bruce, one of the key anti-Establishment figures of 1960s America, who constantly pushed the envelope with his numerous brushes with the law and his convictions for obscenity in 1964. This Jewish-American stand-up comedian’s outrageous, taboo-breaking humour helped liberalise the American Entertainment Industry during the tumultuous 1960s, becoming an inspiration for many of today’s comedians. Looking for Lenny uncovers the man behind the myth.
