He has recorded eight comedy albums and won in 2007 a Grammy Awards for his "The Carnegie Hall Performance, and a second one for "Stark Raving Black". He is also a best-selling writer having published three books all of which were an instant success, Nothing's Sacred in 2005, Me of Little Faith in 2008, and I'm Dreaming of a Black Christmas in 2010.

2012 was the biggest year for the comedian as he sold-out 8 of his shows on Broadway, including two produced by HBO, called Black on Broadway. In 2015 he had a supporting role in the academy award winner animated movie Inside Out where he lent his voice to the character "Anger".

He also has a live show on Audible called The Rant Is Due where he rants about behind the scenes moments of his tours, receives phone calls, among other things he is famous for. His performances have always been characterized for his "cathartic" released of both disillusionment and anger onto the audience watching or listening to him.

    First, Black has the best warm-up act we’ve seen. Then Black comes on. If laughter is the best medicine, Black’s medicine makes us feel simultaneously better and worse about the world. He’s been a curmudgeon all along, but now it matches his age so he’s truly the master of it — the impossible love child of Lenny Bruce, Walter Matthau, and a rabid dog. Almost makes Trump worth having.

    We have seen Lewis at least 6-7 times. This was the most downbeat no laugh show I have ever seen. While expecting a ton of material for the times, the show was terrible and we walked out 1/2 the way thru.

    I love Lewis Black. And the opportunity to spend an evening watching his rapier wit destroy at least the Trump administration seemed like a good idea.

    This show was hilarious. But then Lewis Black is always funny. John Bowman was also quite entertaining. And as always, the Tennessee Theatre was a treat. The only complaint I have is that when things got really loud, as in a lot of ranting and raving, I had trouble understanding what was being said. I guess I’m getting old! ;-(

    Lewis Black was in true form, His insane comedy is keeping me sane these days.
    The State Theatre is a beautiful venue, though Lewis loves to mock it, along with everything else.
    The sound system was perfect

    The comedy by Louis Black was still good but too much filler by the opening comedian– not nearly as good! and the wait before and between acts was too long. Also, the venue has only one elevator and there were lots of disabled people like me having to wait in line. So not very accessible for some of us. I felt I spent way too much money for what we got.

    We had an amazing night, John Bowman and Lewis Black are just hilarious. My husband is a huge Lew fan and now that I have experienced him without the distractions of being in my home, I can see why.

    Ever laugh so much/hard you clear your lungs? Great Show opened by J. Bowman who did lots of Trump jokes. Lewis focused his political jokes on the cabinet, though not the meat of the show. I Always get tickets for Lewis when he’s in Town!!! If you get his humor, get your tickets now!!!

    It was entertaining. I guess if you like his stuff on tv, then you’ll like him live. Not as funny as I would have liked, but enjoyable. I think he needs to retire. Enjoy the rest of his life.

    I am a long time fan of Lewis Black, so it was fun to see him in person. However, he was either tired from touring or too depressed from the 2016 election to exhibit the kind of energy I’ve witnessed in past performances.

    Why everything has to revolve around politics and why this or any other comedian think the relentless bashing of Trump and the people who voted for him is funny?

    This is the second time we have seen Lewis. We think he is hysterical.
    This event there were numerous interruptions by the audience. this is not something Lewis can control and he handled it gracefully. But I didn’t pay to hear those peoples opinions. I think the Ovens staff should have removed them. the interruptions made Lewis get off track which wasn’t really funny.
    Overall we still think he is very funny

    Ive been a fan of Lewis Black for many years…this wasn’t his best effort. I felt he was struggling to get through jokes. Personally, he should have stayed on Trump/Congress…that’s where he got his laughs. The transition to the live streaming was awkward , “come on you guys, get real loud!”…they actually have to make the crowd get fired up after his set. We left after realizing the live stream was as bad as the main show. Unfortunately (or fortunately), the opening comic was better!

    Lewis Black never fails to disappoint. He speaks on current topics and using the absurdities of daily news to show the humor in them. Love his presentation and how he handles the audience . This was our 4th show in about 6 years and we just love him!

    Lewis Black was great and always at his best . This was my third time to see him.
    He was so funny and sharp. The venue was beautiful at the Kalamazoo State Theater which was a 1920’s Era . Every seat is great. If you don’t know Lewis Black humor it is very political and holds no punches.

    He was not on his game in Reno. He had hardly a voice. The sound was terrible and the content was lagging and slow. The show opener guy should have stayed home. We stuck it out, thinking he would do some of his good material. People were leaving early left and right. We should have followed. Never again!

    We are big supporters of the comedy of Lewis Black. His extremely colorful language helps to accent his frustrations with government and his great commitment to educating his audience about all the nastiness he sees in the world of politics, entertainment and today’s modern fast-paced world. We have seen him live previously and have also participated in a TV pay-for-view to enjoy his “black” sense of humor. This event was perhaps slightly off in that it seemed he was tired and only occasionally displayed his famous rant energy that we come to expect throughout his performances. Also, after testing the waters with the audience he realized that he was in more “pro-trump territory” than he expected and his rants became tamer than I had hoped. Nonetheless, he still gave us plenty of laughs, along with his opening act, and we enjoyed the evening very much.

    The venue was nice, but Black was not nearly as funny as hoped. Part of the act was just reading prop pages. His character is funny enough, but this is nothing like his spots on the daily show.

    i have loved seeing Lewis Black in the past, but he seems to have lost his edge. He even said in his performance that things in government are so bad, he couldn’t make jokes about it. Maybe that’s what has happened. Probably won’t go to see him again.

    I met Lewis Black outside one of the restrooms (like a normal person), and he is really nice. He may be angry on stage but he’s actually very calm in real life. The show was excellent, I saw him about 6 months ago and he changed some of the material and kept some “old” favorites from last year. Go see him if you have the chance!

    First off, the venue was amazing. The Hershey Theater is a beautiful place. I definitely plan to attend more events there and the staff was well prepared and well organized.
    Now secondly, Lewis Black and his opening act were hilarious and even more amazing than I thought they could be! Lewis even did an autograph signing and pictures afterward. I would recommend to anyone that they should go see his show!

    There is nothing wrong with political humor even if you make fun of stuff I believe, but at least be funny. Black came off angry(which I get is part of his act, this just felt different) and made it feel more like a political lecture than a comedy act. I don’t care if you make fun of Trump, Obamacare, tax cuts, whatever just be funny and this show was not. It was a big disappointment. The woman in the audience with the big mouth just made it that much worse…lady no one is there to hear you!

    After seeing Lewis Black on Youtube/HBO several times he seemed pretty good but in this show he didn’t have that many original jokes. Some were recycled from old shows I’ve seen on the Youtube. And he spent too much time reading to us interesting/funny news articles. Nah, that’s what buzzfeed and other websites are for. So even though there were some good jokes, overall the show wasn’t nearly as funny or entertaining as expected. I won’t pay for another show of his. Also, venue wasn’t able to read QR codes and said it’s service provider’s fault, but that’s not Lewis’s problem. Also, not sure why the venue review is rated with stars, but the show’s review doesn’t have the ability to show stars. I’d give the show 2 stars out of 5.

    A lack of intellectual material! Lewis (and his warm-up guy) seemed unenthusiastic, like it was just another gig they had to get through (and travel on to Reno). Their jokes were stale and dated. Neither seemed to know where the audience stood on a number of topics, State issues and national politics. If Lewis would have avoided using the “F-bomb” and fecal material references, his show would have been considerably shorter. He seemed unaware that the venue’s audience was primarily retired people rather than college students. Both comics seemed ill-prepared, and would often pause too long, trying to remember their lines.
    Their microphone should have been on their cheeks, not on a stand. When moving around, words would be lost, leaving listeners not hearing a joke’s punchline. Then at times they would scream into the mic. The show started 10 minutes late and the break was too long.

    Lewis Black’s show in Knoxville was the best he’s done here in a few years, and John Bowman is always fun as well. Black’s irreverence, over-the-top presentation, and sarcasm are right on for today’s really bizarre times. The “Rant” addition at the end is a nice addition that he hadn’t done here before, and I appreciated his comments about the beauty of this area and the venue. I see him every chance I get!

    I like Lewis Black, thought he was funny and was not offended by anything that was said. But the opening act was so unfunny it was painful. And we had too little time devoted to Lewis. I felt cheated. Staff at DPAC are nice but it is a poorly planned venue as far as parking and access. Sound is better now.

    Mr. Black is so insightful and intelligent and uses comedy to get his messages across. Second time I have heard him and he is still bringing it on.
    Great laughs with a message. We can all laugh with him, at him and at ourselves.
    Wonderful show. Highly recommended.

    My husband and I love Lewis Black, and were excited to go see him 2 hours from where we live. Hershey theater was beautiful. What I didn’t realize was that even though the show starts at 8:00, Lewis doesn’t come out until 9:00! He has another comedian start first. I can’t remember his name but he was funny. Still, would have preferred to know this ahead of time. Also would have prefered to just have Lewis Black start at 8:00.

    Lewis has always been angry, and that is what made him so funny. However, now he just seems to have given up as if he is too angry. The crowd was HORRIBLE and they wouldn’t shut up (which didn’t help). It also didn’t help that less than half of the seats were sold, but Lewis just doesn’t have that same fire in his belly. He is defeated and angry at the crowd more than the world in general. Still funny some of the time, but just not nearly as good as he once was.

    This was my third time seeing Mr. Black performed. As usual it was outstanding and extremely funny. The trouble is that he just tells the true about what is going on today causes us to live. How ironic. Keep up the good work Mr. Black. I am looking forward to seeing you perform again, that is unless you get Trumped.
