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. He’s also deeply committed to supporting our troops. A seasoned USO tour veteran, he’s  performed for the troops on three Christmas tours in Iraq and Afghanistan.
