Product Description

Lewis Black: Red, White and Screwed (DVD)

Comedian/author/playwright/pundit Lewis Black stars in his second HBO solo special, an all-new hour of frenetic, take-no-prisoners stand-up comedy, taped before a live audience at the Warner Theatre in Washington, DC. Lewis Black: Red, White & Screwed features Black's opinions and insights into such issues as the State of the Union, abortion, frozen embryos, defecation habits, fossils, bad language, FEMA and, of course, Dick Cheney's aim.

"Apoplectic" is the word to describe Lewis Black's 2006 engagement at Washington DC's Warner Theater. There's eye-crossing, teeth-gnashing, raspy-voiced yelling, and liberal use of the f-word. (As Black reveals, the Kennedy Center refused their facilities on the grounds that he used the word 42 times in his first hour-long HBO special.) Then again, George W. Bush's second term has given the comedian much to be apoplectic about--Dick Cheney's hunting mishap, airport (in)security, the president's support of creationism, and the inanity of 24-hour cable news. At one point, he admits, "I just can't keep up with all the...stuff," although that isn't his exact phrase. Lest potential viewers think Black (The Daily Show, Black on Broadway) is nothing but a blue state apologist, he makes his distaste for John Kerry clear, i.e. "The fact of the matter is for the Democrats not to be able to find somebody who could've defeated George Bush is beyond belief--it's stunning." Black also explores misconceptions about Judaism, the media obsession with Terry Schiavo, and myths about the "homosexual agenda," which is to say: there isn't one. A few too many excretory jokes aside, Black otherwise makes good points and produces hearty laughs--some from his proud parents, who are part of the audience. As for the extras, they're brief, but amusing, and English is the only audio option. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

We were crying with laughter and screaming at the TV. Not only do I recommend that you buy this DVD, I'm going to buy copies for my friends.

I haven't seen his other DVDs, so I can't comment on whether those are better. You'll have to rely on the other reviewers for that. But during my years living in Washington DC, I saw my share of comics at the Warner Theater and I can assure you, Lewis Black KILLS!!

Razor sharp, topical humor delivered with the kind of righteous anger that makes you leap off the couch and yell "YES!!" His comments on current events in America are spot-on and neither side of the political aisle escapes his withering assessment.

So gather some friends, open the libation of your choice, turn on the DVD and let the crying and screaming begin!

Personally, I thought Lewis Black's "Black on Broadway" was quite a bit better but I'd put this one in at second place out of all of his multimedia work. He doesn't get as pissed off and exasperated in this one and sometimes even seems like the emotion is forced. I know it must be hard to get pissed off every show just to satisfy an audience so can't really complain about him, he has some great points....there's a good bit about how America is building a 700 mile long fence to keep the mexicans out but we can't even build the levies in New Orleans after the hurricane disaster....hehe....anyway, this DVD is good and is mostly new material sorta but if you don't have Black on Broadway, go for that one...or save that one as best for last...

When i left the Marines in 1961, after four years of bad language, I started to improve my communication skills. Until 2003 I doing very well, communicating my ideas and thoughts on many issues. But then the political climate changed, there were few words that could describe the politics and the sense of frustration of the political change that was going on. I was offended at first with Lewis Black's choice of words, but as time went on, he became my spokesperson on the trends in politics.

Lewis Black is brilliant. I have seen him in person and it's a real treat. This is an older show so some of his topics are dated, but still funny. No one can deliver like he can which is why he is one of the currently best standup comedians of this era. I highly recommend this to anyone who is not afraid to laugh out loud and is not offended by cursing. Obviously this is not a video for your children or grandmother, unless she retired from the Navy or was an Iron Worker.

I read several reviews here and found many to be written by self-righteous liberals with the same liberal rhetoric claiming that Conservatives and Tea Partiers would be enraged, running for the hills or butthurt over Black's political humor. Assuming Conservatives have the same absurd mindset as you is...well...liberal thinking, and way off in left field as usual. Black is sharp-witted, funny and makes some very good points in the process. It's COMEDY ffs!

Lewis Black never ceases to make me laugh. Red, White, and Screwed finds the in your face, politically charged comedian in Washington; and where would be a better place for the comic to perform I ask of you? Black reveals his troubles with scheduling his performance at the Kennedy Center (just picture someone sitting there, counting how many times he said the F word), while offering scathing commentary on Dick Cheney's hunting "mishap", the Iraq war, homophobia, and offers his thoughts on horse shows as well. He also goes into great length in describing his upbringing in Silverspring, Maryland and why he tells people he's from D.C., as well as getting the call to perform for the President himself (which concluded in a hysterical result). Black may be more coarse than he needs to be to get his point across, but he remains one of the best stand up comedians out there today, and this HBO special only offers up more proof of that. There's a few extras included on the DVD, but nearly enough as one would like.

Having seen Lewis Black in person, I can say my comments would love to be peppered with four letter words. However, this man tells the truth and makes me laugh. How can it get any better. Don't miss a chance to see him live. He has several videos out. Check them out.
