Editorial Reviews

Stark Raving Black Productions proudly presents the comedy of Lewis Black in 80 minutes of outrageous stand-up humor. Shot at the historic Fillmore Theatre in Detroit, Stark Raving Black features Lewis Black serving up his blistering social and political commentary on current events. The movie is a culmination of his very best material from his sold out shots throughout North America and Europe in 2009. Also included is a 70-minute documentary on Lewis Black's life and career titled Basic Black. The documentary gives an intimate portrait of what it's like to "lick every inch of the ladder" on the way to becoming one of the most successful comedians in America.

All I can say is I love this guy.

I really like Lewis Black's take on things and his matter of fact way he communicates his frustrations.
Jeffrey Ehlenfeld
Seemed off from his usual dry, but witty humor.

Format: DVD
1 Disc Widescreen, being released June 15, 2010.

"Stark Raving Black" was directed by Adam Dublin and is Lewis Black's stand-up comedy concert at the Fillmore Theatre in Detroit where he goes off on social issues and political commentary on current events. Black chose Detroit under the assumption that if anyone had a reason to be mad, it would be Detroit so they would like his angry humor.

Black vents on a series of topics from the perspective of a grumpy 60 year old man who is fed up with the system. At one point, he points out that anyone who declares themselves a Republican or Democrat these days with the minor differentiations in the parties and mistakes made on both sides is basically an idiot.

He goes into a very entertaining story about discovering that he had become a mainstream comedian by having to follow up country legend, Vince Gill and his wife, Amy Grant at an event and being unable to compete with their pure goodness and talent.

He talks about everyday issues like aging, parents, birth and death. He talks about political and social issues of greed, how everyone knew the country was going downhill, the economy, the issues with alternative energy, and the message of hope.

He has some great stories and presents them in a very funny perspective and even more impressively manages very smooth transitions from one topic to another very naturally. Black is a very angry person who manages to rant in an entertainingly funny way and is a great release to watch!

Bonus Features:

The Lewis Black Story is a documentary feature that runs a little over an hour and begins with a gag reel of him attempting to do his radio spot for the show in Detroit and transitions into the story of his tour and the people behind it.

Lewis Black is dealing with the fact he's sixty, and in this special reminiscing to childhood about how sixty year olds looked to him is hilarious, and very true. His brilliance and smart-ass like performances and reactions don't disappear despite his age, they only get funnier and more addicting. This special is around 80 min. long but I'm still craving for Lewis Black when it's over.

One of the funniest things was Lewis holding up his phone and talking about all it;s features.....Outrageously funny because since then I have heard that Walmart can count every toothbrush that gets sold in any Walmart in the world, but MF Global 'lost' 1.2 BILLION and Corzine and JP Morgan have no clue where it went.....

I think we need to put Lewis with his bi partisan bite in Washington somehow....These clowns that we have keep screwing it up ROYALLY,,,notice I said ROYALLY because they do not loose one penny, they expect the GRUNTS to bail them out after they have mugged, raped, and screwed them......Lewis is Mark Twain Reincarnated....

I must confess I found the new LB DVD a little bit harmless compared to his prevous publications.
Specially the Vince Gill part was a little too long in my opinion.
But nevertheless Lewis Black for me is the greates living stand up and I hope he will release lots
of DVDs in the future. I'm sure I'll buy all of them
