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.
