Stand-up comedian Lewis Black continues to make people laugh with his commentary on contemporary politics and trends. Black has invaded our television sets with his “Back in Black” segment on The Daily Show, one of only two segments that still air on the show since its creation. Starting in 1998, he has had three Comedy Central Presents specials, leading to two HBO specials, Black on Broadway and Red, White, and Screwed.

Most recently, in February, 2007, he received the Grammy award for “Best Comedy Album” for The Carnegie Hall Performance.
