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, and most recently a sold out Broadway run at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in NYC.
Lewis’s live performances provide a cathartic release of anger and disillusionment for his audience. He is a passionate performer who is more of a ticked-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 came into national prominence with his appearances on The Daily Show in 1996, which led to comedy specials on HBO, Comedy Central, and Showtime. In 2001 he won Best Male Stand-Up at the American Comedy Awards. He has released eight comedy albums, including two Grammy Award-winners: 2007’s The Carnegie Hall Performance and 2001’s Stark Raving Black. Lewis has also 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).
