    • Lewis Black: If you're working out in front of a mirror and watching your muscles grow, your ego has reached a point where it is now eating itself.

  • Black is funny. The person that is.

    9.3
    Lewis Black, not hosting his popular(well to me it is) show, was also a comedian. The first time I saw him was on comedy centrals stand up, where it was Lewis Black on Broadway. In this showing he poked fun at many things in life. For instance; when there is a nuclear holocaust we were told to hide under a desk,which according to Black is stupid, mainly because wood burns. He then went on to say how after the alarm was off you could go out and play, but you melt cause of the radiation. Very funny. He also talked about economics and the economy and that he failed it and stuff. Basically he s$&+* on everything. He is quite funny, good actor, great host, etc.moreless
  • A reality check in the world of idiots.

    Lewis Black is a more recent (and older, but not an old guy) comedian, who most of all talks and rants about how much people and events are either really stupid or Even more stupid. These days, that stuff is GOLD. Cmon, Bush being in office is enough for him to make 100 grand off of a stand up tour. He is 1 big reality check, and every time i've seen him or one of his shows, i never can go 5 minutes without laughing at what he said. He is a great comedian, and i only wish he had started sooner.moreless
