Lewis Black
The Joke's on US Tour

Known as the king of the rant, Lewis Black uses his trademark style of comedic yelling and animated finger-pointing to skewer anything and anyone that gets under his skin. His comedic brilliance lies in his ability to make people laugh at the absurdities of life, with topics that include current events, social media, politics, and anything else that exposes the hypocrisy and madness he sees in the world.

  • Black was born in Washington, DC and raised in Silver Spring.
  • “Back in Black,” Black’s regular segment on The Daily Show, is one of the most popular and longest-running segments on the show for both the Jon Stewart era, and now The Daily Show with Trevor Noah
  • After completing studies in drama, Black’s career began as a playwright-in-residence in New York City’s West Bank Café Downstairs Theater Bar. He also emceed every show, honing his stand-up skills enough to take his show on the road.
  • Comedian Jeff Stilson opens the show.
