Was Lenny Bruce Jewish?

Lenny Bruce

Well, to make a long story short, Lenny Bruce was Jewish!

Since Lenny Bruce's mother was Jewish, and in Judaism one's religion is based on one's mother's religion, then that makes him also Jewish. His father was Jewish too.

Lenny Bruce (who's full birth name was Leonard Alfred Schneider) was born on October 13, 1925 in Mineola, New York, United States.

He was an American stand-up comedian, social critic and satirist. He was renowned for his open, free-style and critical form of comedy which integrated politics, religion, sex, and vulgarity.
