This two-time GRAMMY® award-winning comedian, actor and author is the rare comic who can cause an audience to laugh while making compelling points about the absurdity of the world around them. He brings this talent to his latest show “The Rant Is Due,” providing audiences with a cathartic release of anger and disillusionment.

“I can’t wait to see what our leadership isn’t going to accomplish next.”  – Lewis Black

LEWIS BLACK, Grammy Award-winning stand-up comedian, is one of the most prolific and popular performers working today. He executes a brilliant trifecta as stand-up comedian, actor and author. Receiving critical acclaim, he performs over 200 nights a year to sell out audiences throughout Europe, New Zealand, Canada and United States. He is one of a few performers to sell out multiple renowned theatres including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Brooks Atkinson Theatre, New York City Center, the Main Stage at the Mirage in Las Vegas and most recently a sold out Broadway run at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in NYC.

His live performances provide a cathartic release of anger and disillusionment for his audience.  He is a passionate performer who is a more pissed-off optimist than 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 in 1996.  Those appearances on THE DAILY SHOW led to comedy specials on HBO, Comedy Central, Showtime and Epix.  In 2001, he won the Best Male Stand-Up at the American Comedy Awards. He has released eight comedy albums, including the 2007 Grammy Award-winning “The Carnegie Hall Performance.”  LEWIS BLACK won his second Grammy Award for his album “Stark Raving Black.”  Lewis has published three bestselling books, Nothing’s Sacred (Simon & Schuster, 2005), Me of Little Faith (Riverhead Books, 2008) and I’m Dreaming of a Black Christmas (Riverhead Books, 2010).
