Known as the King of 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 has released eight comedy albums including the 2007 GRAMMY Award-winning The Carnegie Hall Performance. He won his second GRAMMY Award for his album Stark Raving Black and has 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). In 2012 he performed eight sell-out shows at Richard Rodgers Theatre on Broadway as well as did one of his two HBO Specials BLACK ON BROADWAY. In 2015 Black notably voiced the character “Anger” in the Academy Award-winning film from Pixar Inside Out. A published playwright he’s written over 40 plays and has found his work performed throughout the country including at the A.C.T. Theatre the Magic Theatre The Williamstown Theatre Festival and The Public Theatre. In addition to his professional pursuits Lewis is dedicated to a number of charitable organizations including the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation The Rogosin Institute and The 52nd Street Project.
