Editorial Reviews

Once the happiest season of all, the daunting days between Thanksgiving and New Years often end with a hangover, a potbelly, and enough credit-card debt to make our heads spin. In SURVIVING THE HOLIDAYS WITH LEWIS BLACK, the Curmudgeon of Comedy Lewis Black returns to HISTORY to make sense of the 36-day marathon of stress that consumes us all. Armed with history, humor and his trademark ranting, the ever-acerbic Lewis takes a comedic look at how to survive the month-long festival of consumption without losing your mind. Watch as Lewis consults experts in holiday history, anxiety and gift giving, and explores the meaning of Kwanzaa, the history of Chanukah, and the real Saint Nicholas. He will interview turkeys on a turkey farm, do a stint as a department store Santa and investigate why we drink on New Years Eve. Fellow comedians, including Bob Saget, Craig Ferguson, Joy Behar, and David Alan Grier, weigh in on the anxiety-inducing holiday season and offer survival tips of their own.

It was really a bore to watch.

I think it was a waste of plastic to make this product.

Lewis Black is one of the best comics today.

Last year The History Channel aired this special during the holiday season. I never laughed so hard. Lewis Black is one of the smartest, funniest comics around today and his take on the horrors of the holidays is delightfully crazy and all too true. No one is safe. If you don't recognize your own family or yourself in this hilarious truth telling, you are missing a funny bone. This is 94 minutes of Holiday Snark at its best. Thank you, Lewis!

This was not what I expected. I am a true fan of Lewis Black but, there was an assortment of other comedians who contributed to the DVD and not the usual Lewis Black rants. I was disappointed.

Before buying this as a Christmas gift for my wife, I read several negative reader's comments. We're both big Lewis Black fans though, so I thought aw, heck - how bad can it be. Well, pretty bad from where I stand. The issue is that it's mostly not Lewis Black. It's a whole bunch of other people - some famous, some less so - talking about a variety of holiday events. It's only narrated by Lewis Black, who gets in just a few lines of his own on the whole DVD.
My wife said she still enjoyed it, but for me, it wasn't what I thought I was buying.

I am a fan of Lewis Black's stand-up comedy, so was happy to receive this as a Christmas present. I got about 30 minutes into the DVD when I realized that I hadn't laughed once, hadn't chuckled, and hadn't even cracked a smile.
EJECT!
Lewis Black's stand-up comedy is hilarious. But this DVD isn't Lewis Black's comedy.
He's interviewing other comedians, then he forces a laugh at their not-very-funny responses.
This DVD was very poor...

Lewis Black is GREAT on this. Probably won't like it if your Christmas MUST be "carols around the hearth" and "cider by the yule log". But, if you know someone who enjoys Lewis Black's comedy, this is a perfect stocking stuffer!

If you're expecting anything light and fluffy, well, I think you're going to be disappointed. Funny man with many issues. At least his parents are proud of him. Might rub any of the religious fringe the wrong way by quite a bit.
