|Lewis Black is angry about stuff
Notoriously irate comedian Lewis Black arrives for a hilarious performance in our outdoor Lilian Fontaine Garden Theatre on Thursday, September 10, at 7:30pm.
Black is the longest-running correspondent on The Daily Show, having recently made an appearance for host Jon Stewart's final episode. His segment "Back in Black" delves into political and social issues from the perspective of an angry everyman. With a full night of stage time at his disposal, don't expect him to hold anything back!
