Premium entertainment network EPIX announced today that Lewis Black: Old Yeller - Live at the Borgata, a comedy event starring Grammy Award-winning comedian Lewis Black, will premiere on the network tonight, May 2, 2014 at 10PM ET. Known for his no-holds-barred approach to stand-up comedy, the hour-long special captures Black's acerbic wit as he tackles topics ranging from politicians to married people to humanity's basic stupidity.
