The prolific funny man, actor, author, and stand-up comedian/ranter Lewis Black's ongoing "Running on Empty" tour has sold out nearly every venue across the U.S. in 2012 thus far. This week, TicketHunterOnline has announced a 20% price reduction on all Lewis Black tour tickets with promo "COMIC" for all fo 2012 & 2013.
Lewis' live performances provide a cathartic release of anger and disillusionment for his audience. Lewis yells so they don't have to. He is a passionate performer who is a more pissed-off optimist than mean-spirited curmudgeon. Lewis is the rare comic who can cause an audience to laugh themselves into incontinence while making compelling points about the absurdity of our world.
As a familiar presence on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,” and a Grammy Award-winning artist, Black performs over 200 nights a year to sell-out audiences around the world. He is one of few performers to sell out multiple, renowned theatres including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Broadway’s Brooks Atkinson Theatre, New York City Center and the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. His HBO specials include "Black On Broadway" and the Emmy-nominated "Red, White and Screwed."
The comic Lewis Black is what you would call an equal opportunity offender. No matter what you believe politically or socially, he is bound to offend you with something he says during his set. But as he warns his audience at the very beginning of his last album from Comedy Central, Lewis Black: In God We Rust: Don't get up and walk out.
He has developed a stage persona all his own. He is the angry man with a capital "A." He rants and raves. He is viciously sarcastic. The foulest language is not strong enough for him. There are certainly those who will agree with what he says, while deploring the way he says it. I'm sure he'd make very clear what they ought to do about it.
Many conservatives more than likely find him too liberal, liberals too libertarian, and so on. However, Lewis's acts show that he has little use for politicians of any stripe; neither Republicans nor Democrats seem able to deal with the problems the country currently faces. Black's opinions are both widely entertaining and clever at the same time.
Upcoming shows include Austin TX, San Antonio, Houston, New Orleans, Washington DC, New York, Las Vegas, and more. All tour dates, scheduling & tickets for Lewis Black's "Running on Empty" tour can be referenced at TicketHunterOnline.com.
