Comedian Lewis Black Announces Additional Dates For 2023 Off The Rails Tour

Two-time Grammy winning Comedian Lewis Black announced today 23 new dates for his 2023 OFF THE RAILS TOUR that will include stops throughout North America. Tickets will go on-sale beginning Friday, May 5th at 10am (local time) with Official Fan Club pre-sale starting Mon, May 1. Details on how to join HERE.

On May 2nd at 4:20pm ET, Black released his highly anticipated stand-up special, Lewis Black: Tragically, I Need You, globally on YouTube as well as Spotify, Apple, and Amazon. The brand-new special explores topics including his ways of coping with the pandemic, his frustrations with the evolving world, and of course his rants about the chaos of America these last few years.

Today, Lewis is one of the most respected comics in the industry and is known as the King of Rant, using his trademark style of comedic yelling and finger pointing to expose the absurdities of life. His comedic brilliance makes people laugh at life's hypocrisies and the insanity he sees in the world. Adding a unique element to the end of his shows each night, Black delivers audience-written rants which have been submitted from fans around the world. He has done over 400 live streaming shows titled; THE RANT IS DUE. These rants are available on his podcast, Rant Cast.

Black is the longest-running contributor on Comedy Central's The Daily Show and you can see him guest hosting June 20th, 21st, and 22nd.

His stand-up specials have appeared on HBO, Comedy Central, Showtime and Epix. His latest special, Thanks for Risking Your Life (2020) was nominated for a Grammy. The comedian has released eight critically acclaimed comedy albums including the 2007 Grammy Award-Winner, The Carnegie Hall Performance. He won his second Grammy in 2011 for his album, Stark Raving Black, and has a total of 6 Grammys nominations. He has published three bestsellers: Nothing's Sacred (Simon & Schuster, 2005), Me of Little Faith (Riverhead Books, 2008) and I'm Dreaming of a Black Christmas (Riverhead Books, 2010).

Black notably voiced the character "Anger" in the Pixar Academy Award-winning film, Inside Out and will be reclaiming his role in the movie's upcoming sequel this year. His other notable films include Universal's Accepted co-starring Jonah Hill, Blake Lively and Justin Long, and also Man Of The Year opposite Robin Williams, Christopher Walken, Laura Linney and Jeff Goldblum.
