Lewis Black

Submitted by Paige DePaolis on Mon, 01/14/2013 - 10:52am

 It's a black world for acclaimed comedian, actor, and author Lewis Black. Black's wittily disdainful stand-up act covers the follies of politics from the recent election as well as his qualms with social media in our society today. Expect lots of yelling, obscenities, and a heavy dose of Black's cleverly dark perspective on our ludicrous world. Sun 7:30 p.m.
