Audible Editor Reviews

Social satirist and hilariously angry comic Lewis Black delivers a scathingly funny performance on Rules of Enragement, his fourth comedy album, recorded live in 2003 at Acme Comedy Company in Minneapolis. In the course of the album, Black swears constantly and emphatically, his gravelly voice and droll delivery adding to his grumpy, amusing demeanor. With topics ranging from the stupidity of anybody choosing to live in Minnesota's inhospitable climate to the questionable leadership of Homeland Security, Black's often political and topical standup will provoke listeners and make them laugh, too.

    "Black fans: stick to t.v."

    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.
