Lewis Black In-depth Biography

Satirist and standup comic Lewis Black} rose to prominence in the late '90s with regular appearances as a commentator on Comedy Central}'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 and worked for a government anti-poverty program under {%President Nixon} before becoming the playwright in residence at the West Bank Café Downstairs Theatre Bar} in Manhattan. Black} authored over 40 plays that were produced there and at other theaters across the country (one, The Deal}, was made into a movie). Seeking to move into comedy}, Black} made his motion-picture debut in Woody Allen}'s Hannah and Her Sisters} in 1986, and went on to land a series of guest-starring roles on TV shows like Law and Order}, Murphy Brown}, Mad About You}, Homicide}, and The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd} (the last of which was recurring); he also appeared in several more films, including 1990's Jacob's Ladder}. Black}'s standup} star began to rise with appearances on Late Show with David Letterman} and Late Night with Conan O'Brien}, and he landed a big break when he signed on as a regular contributor to The Daily Show}. Since then, Black} has continued to tour the country as a standup} comedian, and in 2000 issued his first CD, The White Album} (which naturally took its art design from the Beatles}' release). The following year, Black} developed a one-man show called Black Humor}, which he performed in New York City. After the success of Black}'s weekly stint on The Daily Show}, he starred in several standup specials for the Comedy Central} cable network, whose record division has also released three CDs of Black}'s onstage rants: 2003's Rules of Enragement}, 2005's Luther Burbank Performing Arts Center Blues}, and 2006's Carnegie Hall Performance}. ~ Steve Huey, All Music Guide
