    Satirist and stand-up comic Lewis Black rose to prominence in the late 1990s with regular appearances as a commentator on Comedy Central's The Daily Show. Obsessed with human stupidity, Black became one of the show's most distinctive contributors with his weekly "Back in Black" segment. Recorded live June 26-29, 2003 at Acme Comedy Company in Minneapolis.

    Overall

    I am a big fan of Lewis Black, but this did not work well as an audio performance. First, the recording mixing was pretty bad, resulting in the laughter from the audience (this was a spoken-word concert recording) being so loud and shrill that it was rather unpleasant to listen to. If you do buy this, I suggest turning the treble way down to compensate, since Black does not have much treble in his voice anyway. Second, listening to a comic read his own book is usually quite rewarding - much better than just reading it. But in Black's case, without the visuals, it is not nearly as funny as seeing him on Jon Stewart or other television performances. As a long-time fan, I could imagine what his face and hands were doing, but it was just not the same.
