Lewis Black Recommended The Short List (Theater)

When: Sat., May 10 2014

There’s more to Black than his sour style of nostalgia. There’s apoplexy. It’s surprisingly satisfying to watch him act out—waggling his fingers, sputtering, blubbering, and putting odd spins on words. You get the feeling that any given sentence might rupture at any given syllable, sending a little spritz of outrage into the room. Black is never out of control; the joke is in the fact that he struggles so mightily to maintain control when the universe is unquestionably trying to drive him crazy. —Tony Adler, 2012

Price: $39.50-$75
