Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

"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

5.0 out of 5 stars Crying and Screaming October 18, 2006
Format:DVD
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!

3.0 out of 5 stars good but hard to top his previous work July 23, 2006
Format:DVD
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...

3.0 out of 5 stars Just pertaining to the performance October 10, 2006
Format:DVD
The first half of this is all new and it's great stuff.

However, the second half of this is stuff he's done on previous albums. Considering how he said there are so many things for him to write jokes about that when new things keep happening each day that he can't keep up with them...Well, why not leave the old things where you've already done them and do new material instead?

I'm a pretty big fan of his comedy but I wouldn't buy this.

Although, it's still worth watching a few times because of the way Lewis Black's face looks when he gets mad (which is most of the time).

3 1/2 stars

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lewis Black - Red White & Screwed - Excellent! January 14, 2007
Format:DVD
Lewis does it again with his insightful humor and on target perceptions of the world we live in, topics such as government, current government adminstration, religion, evolution, immigration, Katrina, and much more. This DVD is as good as his Black on Broadway DVD. His delivery is second to none. A DVD is the best way to see Lewis. Just getting an audio CD of his act is only half the show - seeing him and his expressions is truly hilarious. He has fine tuned his jokes and delivery and in my opinion.... no other comedian today can match. Beware, he uses expletives liberally and other statements that may shock you, but uses them to make his points so they actually work well in the act. Note: May not want to listen to this in front of young children... but you must see this and buy these as gifts for your friends. I have and they thank me!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Left me cold September 2, 2009
A Kid's Review
Format:DVD
Compared to Bill Maher, Lewis Black's delivery before an audience seems nervous and forced and therefore not humorous. He seemed angry to me and TRIED to be funny, but wasn't for me. I didn't finish watching this DVD, but returned to Bill Maher instead.
