Lewis Black began his career in theatre in almost a backwards fashion, as a playwright. He was the playwright for the West Bank Cafe Downstairs Theatre in Hell’s Kitchen in New York City after graduating from UNC-Chapel Hill and a Master’s from the Yale School of Drama. Black wrote a musical for a theatre in Houston, and would serve as master of ceremonies and start the show with his own stand-up act. By 1998 he was on Comedy Central focusing solely on his comedic career. He has appeared on TV many times for specials, even doing the History of the Joke on The History Channel in 2008. Black has also made a few movie appearances, including Accepted and Unaccompanied Minors. Black continues to make people laugh all over the country, and you won’t want to miss out on his act!
