Publisher's Summary

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. They also bring us onto their fabled tour bus, as they crisscross Canada stopping at places like Winnipeg, Thunder Bay, and Regina to explain why things are the way they are in the USA.

I was disappointed

While I’m sad to have wasted my money on this, I more thrilled that I didn’t burn a credit on this. While I am a big fan of both Lewis Black and Kathleen Madigan, this lacks direction and comes across as a crass and tawdry money grab. Black dominates most of the recording from various shows performed in Canada, very little is heard from Madigan other than the unscripted conversations she has with Black. Some of them are brilliant, most are mundane.

Wish It Was Longer

Snippets from Lewis Black and Kathleen Madigan's tour of Canada. Hilarious and worthy of laugh out loud responses. I just wish there was more.

Mostly cursing!

I should have known, maybe, but I’ve never listened to Lewis Black before. This whole thing has a couple of funny bits; the rest is him CURSING!! Jarring that it is SO much.

Still funny

This brand of humor is a bit of an acquired taste. The rant is his trade mark. This performance is no different. It is done in a kinda live uncut unscripted manor. A bit irreverent, in these days, anything that can make you feel better with the pandemic and attack that Russia has perpetrated on Ukraine, is worth the escape. If only for a little while. Have fun......

Free, and worth it

Love both comedians,but didn’t care for this format. Short tidbits that don’t do either of these pros justice. Still would buy, or pay to see, their content in the future.

Funny but

Lewis Black was his usual, snarky self. And I love that. But don’t advertise this as Lewis and Kathleen when we only get to hear about 3 words from Kathleen. Disappointing.

NOT Kathleen Madigan

The selection was free, and I still feel like I was ripped off. There is almost no Kathleen Madigan anywhere. If you like a lot of profanity where a comedian is trying to be like the old Andrew Dice Clay or using shock value like Howard Stern with a little Republican bashing thrown in, then Lewis Black is your man and you will enjoy this. If not, look elsewhere for a lot more intelligent and talented comedians.

Classic Lewis Comedy (Uncensored)

Road tripping thru Canada, cracking up audiences along the way. Be warned, you know one of his favorite words seems to be the "F" word.
