Lewis Black, a multiple Grammy Award-winning stand-up comedian, is one of the most prolific and popular performers working today. A rare comic who can cause an audience to laugh hysterically while making compelling points about the absurdity of our world, Black rants in order to provide a cathartic – and highly entertaining – release of anger and disillusionment for his audience. This “formula” has brought him critical acclaim around the world as a stand-up comedian, actor, and author.
In 1996, Black created a weekly segment for The Daily Show, produced by his friend Lizz Winstead. The segment, a three minute rant about whatever was bothering him at the moment, evolved into Back in Black, and became one of the most popular and longest running segments on the show, as well as spearheading a long and successful relationship with Comedy Central.
