|Description:||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 a stand-up comedian, actor and author. Receiving critical acclaim, he performs more than 200 nights annually to sold-out audiences throughout Europe, New Zealand, Canada and the United States. He is one of a few performers to sell out multiple renowned theaters, including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Brooks Atkinson Theatre, New York City Center, the Main Stage at the Mirage in Las Vegas and, most recently, Broadways Richard Rodgers Theatre in New York City.
Blacks live performances provide a cathartic release of anger and disillusionment for his audience. He is a passionate performer who is a more angry optimist than a mean-spirited curmudgeon. Black is the rare comic who can cause an audience to laugh themselves into incontinence while making compelling points about the absurdity of the world.
Black came into national prominence with his appearances on The Daily Show in 1996. Those appearances led to comedy specials on HBO, Comedy Central, Showtime and Epix. In 2001, he won Best Male Stand-Up at the American Comedy Awards. He has released eight comedy albums, including his 2007 Grammy® Award-winning Carnegie Hall performance. He won his second Grammy® Award for his album Stark Raving Black and has published three bestselling books, Nothings Sacred (Simon & Schuster, 2005), Me of Little Faith (Riverhead Books, 2008) and Im Dreaming of a Black Christmas (Riverhead Books, 2010). In 2015, Black notably voiced the character Anger in the Academy® Award-winning film from Pixar, Inside Out.
Additionally, Black does a live streaming show called The Rant is Due at the end of each of his standup performances. This show is written by the audience watching throughout the world and also by the audience in the area of each show. With so much to get off their chests, people use Lewis platform to rant about what on their minds.
