Lewis Black - stage and stand-up beginnings
After attending college at the prestigious Yale University, Lewis Black landed an impressive first job in the entertainment world. Making a base in New York City, he became the head playwright for the West Bank Cafe Downstairs Theatre Bar, bringing his signature style of pitch-black humour and irate antics to the material he delivered. Although he began the early days of his career as a writer, the itch to perform would prove irresistible and Black regularly performed warm-up acts before the main show, learning the craft of stand-up comedy as he went and becoming an accomplished comedian all in his own right.
His career truly took off in the 1980s, with television proving to be his first home. Although it wouldn't prove to be a long-running success, The Rock, a pilot he filmed in 1986, would later serve as the foundations for his first major stand-up comedy routine. While his pilot wouldn't gain him many fans, Lewis Black dusted himself off and moved on to more impressive feats in the entertainment field. During the late 80s, he began appearing in major television of the day. Experience the irate tirades live from the lips of the man himself when you buy Lewis Black tickets online at StubHub.
