ABOUT: Grammy-winning, stand-up comedian Lewis Black, King of the Rant, is on his “It Gets Better Every Day” tour. “When I say, ‘It gets better every day,’ you might be wondering, ‘Is he being facetious?’ Come to the show and find out. Or stay home and wallow in your sadness,” Black says. He tackles current events, social media, politics, and anything else that exposes the hypocrisy and madness he sees in the world. He is the longest-running contributor on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show.” Black voiced the character Anger in the Academy Award-winning Pixar film “Inside Out.” The performance contains adult content.
