AllMusic Review by

Not counting his performance at Carnegie Hall, Lenny Bruce is recorded here unedited. Bruce once said "I'm not a comedian, I'm Lenny Bruce," and The Berkely Concert is true to that statement. Bruce brilliantly explores the paradoxes of the American legal system, celebrity, and advertising, and performs his classic routine "Religions Inc." Being well-versed in the American legal processes and during his battles with the Supreme Court will certainly enhance your understanding of the material. The album pales in comparison to the Carnegie Hall concert, but remains an important document of his groundbreaking comedy.
