Lewis Black: Funniest Man on Earth

Lewis Black: Funniest Man on Earth

Undoubtedly, the funniest man, woman, child (or any other living creature) alive on Earth today has got to be Lewis Black (Sorry Jeff Dunham, Steven Wright, Bill Cosby, and Eddie Murphy). Belive me when I say, that Lewis Black has not paid me to bestow this honor upon him, as he has earned it all by himself. There may be some who would dispute my decision; however, those unfortunatel souls would be very incorrect in doing so.

Who can not laugh when Mr. Black questions why there is a nutrion label on bottled water, (Fat 0%, Cholesterol 0%, Carbohydrates 0%, Sugars 0%, Sodium 0%, Vitamins and Minerals 0%), the asks "Where is the water with fat in it? That's the tasty water. That's the water that *I* want!!!"

We must all be amused when Mr. Black comments an the necessary removal from his calendar of "holidays that no longer apply. I'm happy to announce that this year I have eliminated Valentines Day. I'm not saying we shouldn't have a holiday of love, but it shouldn't be in February. Why? It doesn't f******g belong there. February is the most depressing month of the year. How do we know this? Because we made it shorter than any other month, and it still seems f*******g longer." I tend to agree here. Why isn't Valentines Day in a month that we think of young romance? A time when flowers are starting to bloom, grass is beginning to turn green, and most other animals are starting their spring mating. THIS is when Valentine's Day SHOULD be.

In case you didn't notice from these brief quotes, Lewis Black as a proclivity for the frequent use of four letter euphemisms, and parents should be strongly cautioned that most of his material is explicit. Simply put, for mature audiences only. I could have included some mp3 clips here, but due to the mature nature of most of them, I chose to not include them.

Perhaps you saw him on the episode of "The Big Bang Theory" where he portrayed the angry entomolgist, Professor Crawley, a world-renowned expert on the dung beetle. Howard and Sheldon go to Professor Crawley to settle a bet over whether a cricket they've found is a common field cricket or another species which Sheldon believes it to be. After he goes into a rant about how the Physics deparment is ready to take over his lab before he even gets moved out, because of "funding cuts," and how he is going to have to give live with his daughter "in Oxnard, and not the good Oxnard," he contiues on about how kids made fun of him in his earlier life and called him "Creepy Crawley."

"In 2000, Black and fellow comedian Jim Norton were arrested for their involvement with "The Naked Teen Voyeur Bus",[20] a specially designed bus with acrylic glass walls containing numerous 18 and 19 year old topless women. This bus rode around Manhattan while being broadcast on the Opie and Anthony radio show. Unfortunately, radio station management did not inform the O&A show that the bus's route was also the route that President Clinton was taking that same day. Twenty-eight hours after the arrest, Black and Norton were released. Black appeared on The Daily Show the following night where he stated he was exercising his constitutional rights. He then joked that the location of this particular right was unclear, but that it was "between 'all men are created equal' and 'don't s**t where you eat.'"[Source: WikiPedia

You can also see Black in the Movie "Accepted" where he plays Dean Ben Lewis at the "South Harmon Institute of Technology," a school set up by a group of kids who never seemed to be able to get accepted at any normal college. The ploy worked for a long time, until the "Harmon Institute of Technology" catches on and uncovers them, resulting in a desperate (and successful effort) to get the school accredited, because it has become amazingly popular. (I once thought of applying there to take a class in "Naked Poetry Reading.") This is an excellent movie (IMHO), and I highly recommend it.

"His mother, a teacher, and his father, a mechanical engineer, instilled in both Lewis and his younger brother Ron the importance of education and the necessity to question authority; lessons which have influenced Lewis throughout his private and professional life." Source: http://www.lewisblack.com In the course of his career, Lewis Black has been involved in theatre, film, doing voice-over work, and of course primarily focuses on his work as a stand-up comedian. He has had his hand in over 1000 plays, either as a playwrite, editor, actor, etc the latest of which is a play called "One Slight Hitch," which has been appearing in various theaters around the country. If it comes to a theater near you, it is worth taking time out to go see it.

Periodically, Lewis Black makes appearances at theState Theatre in Easton, PA. If you live within an easy driving, walking, running, biking, or flying distance of Easton, PA, you should come visit our lovely city when he is performing there. FYI-He will be there on Nov 21st and 22nd, 2013, but if you miss that, I'm sure he will be back again next year and in years to follow

In addition to his work as a stand-up comedian, playwrite, voice-over artist, and film actor, Lewis devotes a significant portion of his time enteraining our military troups with the USO often touring with Robin Williams (perhaps the second funniest comedian on earth). He also supports several charitable organizations including "Autism Speaks." See, even though his performances might lead you to think the contrary, Lewis Black DOES have a heart. Actor Mark-Linn Baker, former roommate and playing the role of the father in "One Slight Hitch" said of Lewis that his is "the angry voice of a big heart."
