Comedian and social critic Lewis Black is renowned for his hilariously angry face and simulated mental breakdowns. At his quick-witted live shows, Black skewers the absurdities of history, religion, and politics with impassioned rants that are as funny as they are eye-opening. Whether he's feigning befuddlement with current social trends or making light of pop culture's bloated landscape, Black has made clear that fans at his 2014 tour dates can only expect one thing: the unexpected.
A brainy kid born into a blue collar household, Lewis Black was raised in the Washington D.C. suburb of Silver Spring, Maryland. It was there that he developed the absurd but adroit insights that would later serve his comedic talents. Initially working as a playwright out of the renowned Yale School of Drama, Black found his calling in the roasts he would give plays during his personal introductions of new works to audiences. From there he honed his craft with bit parts in films and TV, eventually earning the respect of New York's funny underbelly. Since then, he's become a Comedy Central staple, both on his own show Lewis Black's Root of All Evil and on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Hot on the heels of a new live CD/DVD released in 2013, Black will hit the road for another round of laugh-filled nights on his 2014 tour.
