Just For Laughs presents

Lewis Black

Why is Lewis Black always yelling? Because if you’d been talking about hypocrisies for the last 30 years, you’d be angry as hell too. Lewis Black’s sarcasm, shouting, and vitriolic rants might seem like he’s stark-raving mad but The Daily Show pundit has proven time and again that he’s the most sensible man in America. So make sure you see Old Yeller wag his finger live on stage!

Lewis Black

His early career: playwright-in-residence at the West Bank Café’s Downstairs Theatre Bar in New York where he oversaw the development of more than 1,000 plays

His big break: in 1996, his friend Lizz Winstead tapped him to create a weekly segment for a show she was producing on Comedy Central called The Daily Show, which later evolved into Back in Black

He’s on TV: has taped four specials for the Comedy Central Presents series, co-created Last Laugh with Lewis Black, presided over Lewis Black’s The Root of All Evil, and continues to perform Back in Black on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart

He wins at stuff: best Male Stand-Up at the American Comedy Awards in 2001

TV loves him: appearances on Larry King Live, Piers Morgan Tonight, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, The Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Conan O’ Brian and the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson

He has hobbies: in his leisure time, Lewis likes to play golf, even though golf hates him
