One of the most prolific and popular performers working today, Lewis Black’s unique blend of biting intellect and pissed off optimism has established him as a favorite among audiences, fellow comedians and critics alike. Black’s breakout role as a long-running, ranting correspondent on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart received critical audience acclaim and launched his personal brand of fury into television and film. A much sought after guest for several late-night television and news shows, Black has also appeared in feature films such as “Man of the Year,” “Accepted,” Unaccompanied Minors” and “Farce of the Penguins.”
Black has also taped four specials for the Comedy Central Presents series, co-created Last Laugh with Lewis Black and presided over Lewis Black’s The Root of All Evil. He has filmed two HBO specials, one of which garnered him an Emmy nomination in 2007. In addition to his roles on film and television, Black has written more than 40 plays as well as four books that each garnered critical praise and commercial success, spending numerous weeks on the New York Times best seller list.
