Basic Black: The Lewis Black Story is a documentary about comedian Lewis Black's early career, and what drove him to his unique brand of comical satire. Well known by fans of stand up comedy for his unending and emotionally heightened rants, Lewis Black has carved out a niche as one the most successful modern comics. But the slightly neurotic and very excitable funnyman did not start in comedy by any means; this hilariously informative documentary highlights Black's early career as a playwright, and his subsequent foray into a career in stand up. Relive the early days after college, where Black penned hundreds of plays, but the economic landscape forced him to try his hand at a new medium. Through intimate interviews, the bitter satirist tries his best to lend reason to his many quirks, explaining as much as he can. And footage of Black and his crew on the road show a side to the volatile comedian that fans either can't wait or tremble at the the idea of getting to know in Basic Black: The Lewis Black Story.moreless
