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.

Misleading Content; Madigan fans should avoid

Contains 99% Lewis Black, traces of Kathleen Madigan, and a paucity of laugh-worthy material... It's the comedy equivalent of a Simon and Garfunkel reunion concert.

nothing like a good rant

once again Louis and Kathleen say what we're thinking and you got to love them for that. cuz if the chicken wing doesn't have bones it's either a nugget or you can call it a chicken strip or a chicken tender but it's not a f****** chicken wing

Not enough Kathleen!

I was promised a double act in the title of this program. At best, this should be retitled, "Lewis Escapes to Canada (and oh yeah Kathleen might chime in from time to time.) I was implicitly guaranteed 50% Kathleen Madigan. At best, I got 10%. 15% if I'm feeling generous. Which I'm not. I think the next project should be "Kathleen Escapes to Ireland (we lost Lewis yelling at a sheep about four counties back)".

Hardly anything to it

This is about 10% comedy and 90 noise and chit chat. Kathleen rarely even speaks. Very poorly produced.

More Kathleen

Kathleen needed more time. I felt like she was an after thought. The supporting cast in this book and not an actual cohost

Seriously?!?

Seriously, WTF?!? It’s 45 minutes of broken drunken audio of them answering audience questions? I love both of these comedians, but it sounds like the drinks got going long before the stand up did. I’m mean that’s a great life, but I don’t record all my drunken nights out and sell it. 🤔 I may have a good idea...., but anyway it’s a NO.
