The Lewis Black Interview
I remember seeing Lewis Black for the first time on TV. I believe it was on 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'. He was going off about something and I remember laughing my ass off thinking this guy is crazy. Since then, I've seen Lewis doing stand-up routines several times. He has such a unique style about him. He ends up taking everyday things and turning them into angry rants. He talks about politics, religion, history, or just things he sees in the street on the way to the show that night. I would love to take his blood pressure before he goes on stage, and compare that to what his blood pressure is when he gets off the stage. Sometimes he looks as if he's going to collapse on stage because he is so worked up over something.
I've interviewed Lewis Black several times over the years. And I told him in this interview, that one of my favorite bits that he has ever done, is his rant on candy corn. You can hear that below. (Warning, audio not suitable for work or small children) I hate candy corn too. Whether you love candy corn or not, you will find yourself laughing hysterically over his take on experiencing candy corn for the first time as a child.
Lewis Black will be performing at the Forum on Friday, February 23rd. You don't want to miss this show. But I will warn you, if you go, you'll probably wake up Saturday with your side will still hurting from laughing so hard.
Here is the entire interview from last week.
