Comedian Lewis Black, who appeared on Broadway in fall 2016 with his solo show Black to the Future, launches his new concert tour, Lewis Black—The Joke's On US tour, January 11 in Santa Barbara, California.

Styled as the “king of the rant,” Black uses his trademark style of comedic yelling and animated finger-pointing to skewer anything and anyone that gets under his skin.

The perpetually outraged Black, who also appeared on Broadway with his 2012 solo show Running on Empty, is also the author of a stage comedy One Slight Hitch.
