Show Details


His live shows provide a cathartic release of anger and disillusionment. He is a passionate performer who is a more grumpy optimist than a mean-spirited curmudgeon. Lewis is the rare comic who can cause an audience to laugh themselves into incontinence while making compelling points about the absurdity of our world.

LEWIS BLACK came into national prominence with his appearances on THE DAILY SHOW. Those appearances led to comedy specials on HBO, Comedy Central, Showtime and Epix. He has won Best Male Stand-Up at the American Comedy Awards. Released 8 comedy albums - 2 have won Grammy® Awards, and published 3 best selling books.
