This is one of Lewis Black's best cd's.
Amazon Customer
If you are diving into his works and want a CD of his, this should be the first one you get.
Marco Antonio La Manno
This CD is still very funny, but most of the jokes are not very new.

You gotta love Lewis Black. Its very rare that you see someone who so gets so angry so easily. Not to mention he's one of the absolute funniest comics working today.

With that said, I was a bit disappointed in this album. I'm not saying that it isn't funny, its just that alot of the material here is pulled from his previous 3 albums. I'd say its about 40% old stuff, and 60% new stuff. His new riffs are great. Very funny stuff about mostly politics from his insane point of view. Its a very good cd. I couldn't not recommend it. But it was just disappointing that I had heard so much of it before.

I own all of Lewis Black's DVDs and CDs, and I am also a big fan of his material on The Daily Show. That said, this is definitely his best CD that he's done.

First, I will have to rebut some of the reviews here -- this is not recycled material. Yes, there are a couple of Superbowl jokes that were reused from The End of the Universe and his 2002 Comedy Central Presents special, and yes, his "civics books" joke was reused from Rules of Enragement. However, those jokes have been far more refined in this performance and are better versions. The rest of the material is original, and of all his performances, he seems to blend with this crowd the best.

Also, the first 8 tracks (with the exception of Gay Marriage) deal with Superbowl Halftime 2004, and nowhere will you find any of this on any of his other CDs or DVDs. The thing with his other CDs is that if you have all h is material, you'll see it all recycled. The White Album is like his 1998 and 2000 Comedy Central specials. The End of the Universe is like his 2002 special. Rules of Enragement is like Black on Broadway, and Carnegie Hall is like Red White and Screwed. You'll find a lot of new material on all of this, yes, but a significant chunk of the pairs I put up have similar jokes in each. Not so with Luther Burbank. This is the only CD of his that I laughed the whole way through, since I rarely ever stopped and thought, "Wait, I've heard this before." If you've seen all he's done on TV, you will barely recognize any of the material on here.

His jokes are hysterical. While he sometimes, though rarely, misses the mark on some of his other merchandise (the latter half of Red White and Screwed is a good example of this), he never seems to miss a beat here, constantly churning out wit like it was nobody's business.

This is a must-buy. If you are diving into his works and want a CD of his, this should be the first one you get.

Buy this one. I have all of Lewis Black's CD's, including the one you could argue along side this one as being his best, Rules of Enragement. They are all great albums and if you love angry comics, he's the man for you. He talks about everything you would want a comedian to rant about...mainly what's wrong with this country. This is the perfect starter for those who have recently been turned on to Lewis Black. Buy this one first, then pick up the rest. After hearing this one, you will have to.

All of Lewis Black's CDs are great, but Luther Burbank is the best. He's in top form, the material doesn't overlap with other CDs and the audience is incredibly responsive. Here's my order of his CDs, from most-best to least-best:

1. Luther Burbank (2005) -- Los Angeles
2. Rules of Enragement (2003) -- Minneapolis
3. Carnegie Hall (2006, a double-album) -- New York City
4. End of the Universe (2002) -- Atlanta
5. White Album (his first album, in 2000) -- Madison, WI
6. Anticipation (his most recent, and sadly, his least funny) -- Wausau, WI

Get them all!

Whether you just like Lewis Black or are a "Lewis Black junkie" like myself, you will LOVE this performance. He really pulls you in when he's on stage....you don't want to miss one word because his thoughts are IN-credible. I've loved Lewis Black since seeing him on TV a few years ago, plus he appears on Jon Stewart from time to time.Just a lot of fun to see and hear. Get this and you'll really enjoy....he makes the saying so true that "laughter IS the best medicine."

I actually didn't buy the CD for me but for a gift for my dad who loves Lewis Black. I really like him also. I have asked him how the CD was and he said it was good. He didn't say it was really good but good seems to be a pretty good review in my opinion. Also in my opinion I don't think there is anything that Lewis Black does that could be bad.

This is one of Lewis Black's best cd's. I usually listen to him in the car, but after this one, I know that everyone on the road will be safer if I didn't. I nearly crashed the car, I was laughing so hard. Definitely a good representation of what Lou can do!

I needed something or someone to make me laugh after Robin Williams' death. I had purchased one of Robin's albums. But even as I laughed, I cried. Lewis Black was the perfect pick me up-so funny!

Thank you, Lewis. And, sorry to see you go, Robin.
