Murray Roman

Briefly touted like a probably successor to Lenny Bruce, past due-60s comedian Roman achieved a cult popularity in Britain through import copies of You May’t Defeat People Up AND ALSO HAVE Them Say I REALLY LIKE You. His routines centred chiefly on sex and medicines and had been punctuated by discotheque spirit as though to emphasize a party-like atmosphere. THE UNITED KINGDOM rights were later on acquired by Monitor Information, which also released Roman’s second arranged, Blind Man’s Film. The name was inspired with a remark related to Ray Charles as well as the recording’s fold-out sleeve was completely matt dark. The collection didn’t emulate the recognition of its forerunner since it became very clear that, despite surface area commonalities, Roman lacked Bruce’s depth and feeling of irony. Busted, which provided one part of old materials and another chronicling the comedian’s spell in jail, demonstrated unrewarding and signalled the finish of its inventor’s brief popularity.
