Known for his profane shouting and trademark angry finger-shaking, Black is a passionate performer who is more annoyed optimist than mean-spirited curmudgeon. His style of comedy is that of a man who, in dealing with the absurdities of life and politics, is approaching his personal limits of sanity. He 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 is a two-time Grammy Award winner for Best Comedy Album and was named Funniest Male Stand-Up Comic in 2001 at the American Comedy Awards. He continues to make regular appearances on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart and was counted among the 100 greatest stand-up comedians of all-time by Comedy Central in 2004.
Black began his career as a playwright in New York City where he collaborated on hundreds of one-act plays. He would use his comedy as an opening act for the plays and performed as the master of ceremonies. After leaving the theater business, Black then began working as a comedian, while finding bit parts in television and films. His first book Nothing's Sacred was published in 2005 with two subsequent books to his credit.
