Lewis and Kathleen Escape to Canada
- By: Lewis Black, Kathleen Madigan
- Length: 45 mins
- Original Recording
Lewis Black has built a career on giving voice to the anger of Americans. His standup fills theaters across the country and his appearances on The Daily Show draw hoards Online and on TV. But the current political climate is driving Lewis and his long-time comedy partner, Kathleen Madigan, north for an extended tour of Canada. Lewis and Kathleen Escape to Canada is a stand-up album with way more than just jokes. The Grammy-award winning comedian performs rants sent in from the public, and he and Kathleen respond to them from the stage.
if you like Lewis Black it's solid listen.

So-so for listening pleasure
I'm a fan of both of the comedians, but this wasn't an entire set. It was mostly just brief excerpts (real brief) from each of the cities on the trip, where they read the letters on stage, and normally just one or two. There wasn't a coherent story to it. If you're looking for a whole comedy set (such as Lewis at Carnegie Hall), this isn't for you. If you're looking for continuity, this also isn't it. If you don't mind Lewis reading a few things on stage (and I don't, BUT this isn't what I hoped for), then it's got some good bits and it's funny -- and way less Kathleen than I was hoping for on a dual-titled story.
