Lewis Black: Off The Rails

September 28, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

See Grammy® Award-winning stand-up comedian, actor, and author, Lewis Black live at The Egyptian Theatre, Boise! Known as the King of Rant, Lewis Black uses his trademark style of comedic yelling and finger-pointing to expose the absurdities of life. His comedic brilliance makes people laugh at life’s hypocrisies and the insanity he sees in the world.

Lewis Black performs his critically acclaimed shows more than 200 nights annually, to sold-out audiences throughout Europe, New Zealand, Canada, and the United States. Since 2014 Lewis Black has done over 400 live-streaming shows, called The Rant is Due, at the end of each of his standup performances. Adding his own unique style, Black delivers audience-written Rants which have been submitted to the fans at his show and throughout the world. These rants are now available on Lewis Black’s podcast, Rant Cast.

Black is the longest-running contributor to The Daily Show on Comedy Central. He has had comedy specials on HBO, Comedy Central, Showtime, and Epix. He has released eight comedy albums, including the 2007 Grammy® Award-winning, The Carnegie Hall Performance. He won his second Grammy® Award for his album Stark Raving Black and has published three bestselling books: Nothing’s Sacred (Simon & Schuster, 2005), Me of Little Faith (Riverhead Books, 2008), and I’m Dreaming of a Black Christmas (Riverhead Books, 2010).

In 2015, Black notably voiced the character “Anger” in the Academy Award-winning film Pixar, Inside Out. A published playwright, he’s written over 40 plays and has found his work performed throughout the country, including at the A.C.T. Theatre, the Magic Theatre, The Williamstown Theatre Festival, and The Public Theatre.
