Lewis Black to perform at Hard Rock
CATOOSA, Okla. – On May 28, Lewis Black will bring his trademark style of comedic yelling and finger-pointing to The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa.
Known as the king of rant, Black’s comedy lies in his ability to make people laugh at the absurdities of life, with topics that include current events, social media, politics and anything else that exposes the hypocrisy he sees in the world.
Black’s big break came in 1996, when a friend tapped him to create a weekly segment for a show she was producing on Comedy Central called “The Daily Show.” The segment, a three-minute rant about whatever was bothering Black at the moment, evolved into “Back in Black.” It became one of the most popular and longest-running segments on the show.
Since then, Lewis has taped four specials for the “Comedy Central Presents” series, co-created “Last Laugh with Lewis Black,” presided over “Lewis Black’s The Root of All Evil” and continues to perform “Back in Black” on “The Daily Show” with Jon Stewart. His popular appearances on Comedy Central helped to win him Best Male Stand-Up at the American Comedy Awards in 2001.
The comedian has earned four Grammy nominations. Black took home the award in 2007 for “Best Comedy Album” for “The Carnegie Hall Performance,” and once again in 2011 for “Stark Raving Black.”
Black has become a sought-after guest for several late-night television shows. He has made numerous appearances on “Larry King Live,” “Late Night with Conan O’ Brian” and “Late Show with David Letterman,” as well as memorable appearances on “CNN” and MSNBC’s “Countdown with Keith Olbermann.”
Black has also written three New York Times best-selling books, including “Nothing’s Sacred,” “Me of Little Faith” and “I’m Dreaming of a Black Christmas.”
