Lenny Bruce lives! Well, at least, his stuff does. From Oct. 13 – 28, fans of the original blue-streak comedian can bid on a few of the man’s rare collectibles and personal items, including, “Bruce family photos, personal letters, a type writer from his early years, his bedroom set and one of his trademark trench coats which he was so famous for being arrested in,” according to a release on the auction.
The event is to be overseen by the late comedian’s daughter, Kitty Bruce. All proceeds go to benefit Lenny’s House, an organization that assists women recovering from alcohol and drug addiction. Bruce died from a morphine overdose in 1966.
Items from celebrity friends of Lenny’s House like Elizabeth Taylor, Penn and Teller, Hugh Hefner and Chris Rock have also been donated for the auction alongside memorabilia from the Bruce estate.
