When it comes to topical comedians spouting rants as long and dramatic as a Shakespearean soliloquy, Lewis Black is a king. A champion of snark, Black has one of the biggest bullshit detectors in the world, and he can make a bottle of water into a ten-minute routine. Since appearing on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Black won two Grammies for his comedy albums, and his voice and outrage became symbols of a frustrated and seemingly disenfranchised youth. Plus, he’s clearly one of the smartest men in the room (any room), touting a diploma from the Yale School of Drama. This weekend, residents of the LBC and beyond have a chance to see the sultan of sarcasm—and like George Carlin or Dennis Miller, seeing Lewis Black is a comedy performance you'll never forget. It’s impossible to predict just what the hell is going to come out of his mouth.
