Album Review

Given the string of troubling events that transpired in the United States in 2005, those who speak with mousy voices but still retain a high level of anger can be thankful that there's a man who shrieks constantly at the top of his lungs about those events, shredding his vocal tissue to it's thinnest: Lewis Black. This edition of Black's series of nonstop standup tirades was recorded at Carnegie Hall in September of 2005 and captures him on all eight cylinders, full-steam ahead into such subjects as Dr. Phil, Hurricane Katrina, gay marriage, and Terry Schiavo. He doesn't waiver in his delivery style at all, which is definitely a good thing for longtime fans who want to hear him at his angriest. But what separates the Carnegie Hall performance from his other work is his amazing stamina: two discs worth of profanity-laden venom that will have the most die-hard student of comedy drained by the performance's end. And if his parting shots are indicative of anything, it's that the worst is yet to come, and for Black fans that's a good thing. A simply outstanding session worthy of your total attention.

Funnier than Nickelback.

this is the funniest comedy album i have heard in a long time. Even funnier than David Cross. Funnier than Nickelback, although they are funny sad. They are a comedy troupe aren't they? This is a great album. Lewis Black is awesome.

Lewis at his best!

I've been a fan of Lewis Black ever since I first saw him on 'Just for Laughs' out of Montreal on CBC television several years ago. His 'rants' are side-splitting and this album is classic Black all the way. When I heard he won a Grammy for this, I just had to have it. Well done!

Lewis Black-the Carnegie Hall Performance

Lewis Black is an amazingly funny man... as much as I would suggest you "watch" him on stage(as his actions/facial expressions thoroughly ADD to the whole experience!) he will make you laugh till you're sides hurt.


Born: August 30, 1948 in Washington D.C.

Genre: Comedy

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Satirist and standup comic Lewis Black rose to prominence in the late '90s with regular appearances as a commentator on the Comedy Central cable network's The Daily Show. Obsessed with human stupidity, Black became one of the show's most distinctive contributors with his weekly Back in Black segment; his delivery was so full of frothing, barely articulate bile and rage that it could sometimes obscure the sharpness of his social and political observations. Black graduated from the Yale Drama School...
