Comic Lewis Black delivers cutting observations and sarcastic tirades on all things absurd in politics and culture. His exasperated commentary puts common sense before ideology or political party. Comedy Central’s The Daily Show has included his popular “Back in Black” segment since 1996, making Black The Daily Show’s longest-serving contributor. Black’s autobiography, Nothing’s Sacred, accounts for many of his ideas and experiences, including his childhood in Maryland and his education at the Yale School of Drama, where he studied playwriting and earned a Masters in Fine Arts. Black has written over forty plays that have been produced at theaters across the country. As a comedian, Black has performed his caustic and dead-on comedy at international A-list clubs and in HBO and Comedy Central specials like Unleashed, Rules of Enragement, and Black on Broadway. His stand-up show “Red, White, and Screwed” appeared at the Warner Theater in Washington D.C. after the Kennedy Center refused to condone Black’s trademark use of explicative language. With Comedy Central, Black is currently developing a television series called Red State Diaries. He co-stars with Robin Williams in "Man of the Year."

Hey, this event was actually Lewis Black in conversation, for some radio show. This should have been clearer in the event description.

Not that I'm totally disappointed, though.
