Black is that very rare comic who can cause an audience to cry with laughter, 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 much-needed release of anger and disillusionment.
This Grammy-winning stand-up comedian became a household name after debuting on The Daily Show. Since his appearance, he's starred in comedy specials on HBO, Comedy Central, Showtime and Epix.
His work as an actor includes Once in a Lifetime, Camino Real, The Matchmaker and Dead End. Black also established the Bill Foeller Fellowship for emerging young directors at the Williamstown Theatre Festival.
In 2001, he won the Best Male Stand-Up at the American Comedy Awards. He has also produced six comedy CD albums, including the 2007 Grammy-Award winning The Carnegie Hall Performance. Lewis Black won his second Grammy Award with his most recent CD Stark Raving Black for best comedy album. Lewis has also written two best-selling books, Nothing Sacred and Me of Little Faith and his latest is, I'm Dreaming of a Black Christmas.
