Lover of ideas who feels no guilt at all about her pleasures.
Lewis Black starts his memoir off with a few observations on the absurdity of nuclear saftey drills in elementary school.
Amazing. I've heard at least 20 different comedians try to make that funny and so far,it just isn't.
Somebody had to know how incredibly unoriginal this, and the vast majority of the other material, was, but greed and vanity (that's just a guess) led them all to publish this insipid collection of the adamantly delivered obvious anyway.
I admire Black's over-wrought persona on the Daily Show, but without the audience and the topicality - it's lame.
Really, really lame.
I'd like to hear him say how lame it is himself. That might be funny.
I am usually a HUGE fan of lewis black, I find his dry sarcastic humor hilarious! So when i saw his book on audible it was a no brainier for me to buy it. However just 2 chapters in I find myself not listening to what I hoped would be his kinda biography/rant on the world instead I found myself knee deep in one of the most disgusting books I've ever heard/read/smelled. I know there will be some hard-core lewis black fans that will curse me up and down for dissing this book, but I found it very unnecessarily vulgar and not even that funny for the most part. I recommend staying away from this one folks, not worth it.
Funny intelligent Sarcastic
When he was sure that he was not an author.
Lewis Black doesn't move you.....he makes you laugh. And that's exactly what he does in this work.
At his worst, Lewis Black is just funny. While this is far from his best work, it is witty, sharp-tongued and laugh out loud funny. A very enjoyable listening experience!
The stories in the book are interesting for the most part. It's not as funny as I expected, and Black's reading of it is lackluster; Black's one of my favorite comedians, but his usually boisterous and intense style is conspicuously absent.
I enjoyed this! I was like being at several back-to-back Lewis Black rant performances. There were funny moments, maddening moments, and heart-felt moments, but it was all Lewis Black. How could anyone be disappointed!
Yes. He's funny and hearing him read it is makes it much better.
All of them.
Great insight into how Lewis became the raging man we love. Must "read" to learn the deep and dark secrets that will surprise you.

Black isn't just the funniest comedian out there today, he's also the smartest! A great book, a great listen with Black also narrating - and anyone, who has the pleasure of listening to the audio book will certainly enjoy this very much.
