Editorial Reviews

About the Artist

Many of you already know Lewis. For those of you who don't, Lewis Black is primarily known for his weekly segment on Comedy Central's Daily Show entitled simply, "Back in Black." Lewis is an energetically angry guy, whose delivery basically pummels the listener into submission with his views on how insane American society is.

Product Description

Lewis Black's twisted, dark, and politicized comedy has made him the caustic voice of dissent for the new Millennium. Known to many as 'America's foremost commentator on everything,' his satirical commentary on the perils of everyday life were seen every Wednesday night for 10 years on Comedy Central's The Daily Show With Jon Stewart. His fame as a hard-edged raconteur has earned him critical accolades and wide popularity, and he's toured extensively throughout the U.S., UK/Europe, New Zealand and Australia. He's also appeared as a regular on NBC's The Conan O'Brien Show, and many episodes of shows like Homicide: Life On The Street, Law & Order, The Murphy Brown Show and Mad About You.. Although Black is a graduate of Yale Drama School & has written more than 40 plays which have been produced around the world, most of the world knows him for his weekly segment "Back in Black" on Comedy Central's Daily Show, numerous specials and cameos Comedy Central and 3 HBO specials (Red White & Screwed, Black on Broadway, and Taxed Beyond Belief), as well as from his appearance in a variety of feature films, including Jacob's Ladder, Hannah & Her Sisters, Man of The Year, Unaccompanied Minors, Accepted, Farce of the Penguins, among others. Lewis is an energetically angry guy, and his delivery pummels the listener into submission with his views on how insane American society is. The White Album is Lewis' classic debut for Stand Up! Recorded in 1999 at Laugh Lines Comedy Club in Madison, Wisconsin and released on June 1, 2000, it has stood the test of time as one of his most important albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Put your big head down on the desk!!!" February 10, 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Are you tired of the usual stand-up routines and are looking for somebody who speaks his mind--and can rage on with his bad self? Well, look no further because Lewis Black is the man for you. In the tradition of Bill Hicks and George Carlin, Black is one outstanding humorous commentator who has appealed to me very quickly. "The White Album" is a hilarious first album that gives you a taste of things to come.
Even though this is his first album (from what I know), the man has no problems with acting like a pro. His rants are hysterical and full of angry energy. He's one of the few comedians who is able to exhaust me from laughing so hard. It's great to have a social commentator on the comedy scene and it is a breeze to listen to his "take-no-prisoners" delivery. He rants about everything from the weather to IHOP; from Bill Clinton to the ozone; from the flu to Miami, and so much more. Black doesn't pull any punches with his act, as he is completely willing to bash anybody who deserves it and is never afraid to point out the laughable stupidity of others. And politicians---beware! He doesn't care which side you're on! He's a man who doesn't discriminate when it comes to pointing out absurdity in the political world.
I really loved listening to this album. While I don't consider this his best work, it is still such a joy to listen to. I'm actually afraid that the man is going to suffer from a stroke on stage one of these days due to the absolute intensity in his performance! His sarcasm ranges from subtle to hysterically outrageous. It's one of the many talents that shows on this very well constructed CD. A word of caution, though: Black isn't afraid to dish out the swear words. If you don't like comedians with foul mouths, then I advise you to keep away.

5.0 out of 5 stars Black's Best So Far July 4, 2005
Format:Audio CD
'The White Album' is, at least in my opinion, Lewis Black's best album he has released yet. The man is dead-on with his opinions on everything from the dangers of suntan oil to the wonders of Nyquil. Black's delivery is great. People may complain that he screams too much and yes, maybe it is a little Kinison-like, but Black is definitely an original comic. You can actually hear the absolute astoundment in his voice at the stupid things in life that people tend to just accept without question.

The highlights of the album are many, but his bits about having to audition to play himself on a sitcom about himself is great. The bit about IHOP being his health club and the horse story that ensues is hysterical. His talk on the Clinton/Monica debacle is fabulous. And his readings from Arkansas newspaper clippings regarding some of the state's stranger citizens is very amusing as well.

From beginning to end, 'The White Album' is flat-out hilarious. Black is a very funny man who looks at life from a much different and much more cynical view than most. Not only does he make you laugh, but he makes you think as well. Not a whole lot of standup comics can do that.

5.0 out of 5 stars comedy genius September 7, 2001
Format:Audio CD
While it took Comedy Central to acknowledge this man's brilliance by putting him finally on the Daily Show (and that is one of the few things right that stupid network has done, they should be cursed from existence for cancelling the Upright Citizens Brigade), Lewis Black is one of the greatest, funniest, outspoken comics since George Carlin. And this CD includes some of his funniest material. Sure he curses a lot, but in Mr. Black's own words about this particular observation, "I don't give a sh-t!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Funnest CD's ever produced. Period. Buy it April 24, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This man is HILLARIOUS! If you have never heard of lewis Black, I don't blame you, he's not a household name. But if you're browsing this page, I WANT you look into it NOW. Lewis Black is the funnest comedian on the scene today. This CD is by far the funnest comedy CD I have in my collection (out of about 8). GET THIS CD AND FIND OUT WHAT YOU'RE MISSING!!!
TRUST ME. I don't write reviews AT ALL, but I am writing this one because it's worth it. Check Lewis Black out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lewis at his creative peak! May 21, 2004
By Brett
Format:Audio CD
This is a must-have for anybody who enjoys Lewis Black or enjoys comedy in general. Simply put- this album is a masterpiece. It's incredible how he comes up with material that borders on the 'ridiculous' side but somehow manages to seem believable. The "horse/college" joke is one of my favorites on the album. He tackles everything- the weather, politics, you name it.
And while his others albums are excellent, this album is about creativity and the diverse material and precense Lewis brings to the table. His 'angry' gimmick isn't as well-developed here as it is in his later albums but his immensely creative material is a nice trade.
So do yourself a favor and buy album!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lewis at his best, but a word for the wise... August 17, 2001
Format:Audio CD
If you know Lewis Black and have seen his two half-hour stand up bits on Comedy Central you've heard approx. 50% of this CD as they were all made near the same time. Nevertheless, this is an EXTREMELY funny performance that, even though you'd know all the jokes, would turn your friends into Lewis fans in a second. The oh so cynical views of the everyday world around us just comes across so well with the anger and bitter delivery. If you EVER have a chance to see this guy live, do it! The stage presence this guy has just adds to the laughs but is totally left out on the CD. Just buy this CD and share it with all your friends!!!
