Lenny was kind enough to meet me at the Strip on another very hot June day in 2015. We talked about his experience coming up in comedy in the 1990's, his personal history with the club and his amazing tale of perseverance auditioning on and off over the course of fifteen years before finally getting his first Letterman shot. He would go on to do two more. Then the show went off the air. Evidence suggests there is no connection.
Lenny also had a unique connection to Lucien, particularly in his final year, primarily because he lived so close.
Look for his pod bites and full length interview in the appropriate places on this website.
