Known as the King of Rant, Lewis Black uses his trademark style of comedic yelling and finger pointing to expose life’s absurdities, hypocrisies and the insanity he sees in the world. Black performs his critically acclaimed shows more than 200 nights annually to sold-out audiences throughout Europe, New Zealand, Canada and the United States. He is one of a few performers to sell out multiple renowned theaters, including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Brooks Atkinson Theatre, New York City Center, the Main Stage at the Mirage in Las Vegas and a sold-out Broadway run at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in New York City.
Since 2014 Lewis Black has done over 400 live streaming shows, called The Rant Is Due, at the end of each of his standup performances. Adding his own unique style, Lewis delivers audience-written rants which have been submitted from the fans at his show and throughout the world. These rants are now available on Black’s podcast, Rant Cast. Black is the longest-running contributor to The Daily Show on Comedy Central. He has had comedy specials on HBO, Comedy Central, Showtime and Epix.
He has released eight comedy albums, including 2 GRAMMY Award winners, published three bestselling books and has written over 40 plays. In addition to his professional pursuits, Black 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 the troops. A seasoned USO tour veteran, he’s performed on three Christmas tours in Iraq and Afghanistan.
