Lewis Black, stand-up comedian, actor and author, is one of the most prolific and popular performers working today. Receiving critical acclaim, he performs more than 200 nights a year to sell out audiences throughout Europe, New Zealand, Canada and the United States. He is one of few performers to sell out multiple, renowned theatres including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Brooks Atkinson Theatre, New York City Center and the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. In August, he was the first stand-up comedian to ever perform in concert at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles.
Lewis' live performances provide a cathartic release of anger and disillusionment for his audience. Lewis yells so they don't have to. A passionate performer who is more a mad optimist than a mean-spirited curmudgeon, he has perfected expressing what the rest of us cannot say in polite company. 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. It is no wonder he has been compared to Mort Sahl, Lenny Bruce, and Bill Hicks.
