Why See Lewis Black?

Comedy & Stand-upSocial Commentary

lewis black Gets Better Every Day!

The twice Grammy-winning Lewis Black is the perfect demonstration of that rare comic, who can cause you to laugh while making compelling points about the absurdity of the world around you. Famed for his angry persona on both stage and cable, including The Daily Show as a special, albeit enraged special guest. His frequent trademarks include comedic yelling and animated finger-pointing as he skewers everything and anybody that grinds his gears. Catch Black live on stage in his 2020 "It Gets Better Every Day" tour.

His work as an actor includes Once in a Lifetime, Camino Real, The Matchmaker and Dead End. Black also established the Bill Foeller Fellowship for emerging young directors at the Williamstown Theatre Festival.

In 2001, he won the Best Male Stand-Up at the American Comedy Awards. He has also produced six comedy CD albums, including the 2007 Grammy-Award winning The Carnegie Hall Performance. Lewis Black won his second Grammy Award with his most recent CD Stark Raving Black for best comedy album. Lewis has also written two best-selling books, Nothing Sacred and Me of Little Faith and his latest is, I'm Dreaming of a Black Christmas.
