The Anaheim show is part of Black's previously announced "The Joke's On US Tour," which will see the politically minded comedian tour across the country with his latest diatribes on all things current and ridiculous. Whether it's live on stage or in his national TV work like Comedy Central's "The Daily Show", Black has proven himself to be the unparalleled master at turning front page news into comedy gold. You can watch one of his razor-sharp segments from his last tour by playing the video above and see how he can make anything funny.
But he's not just in it for the laughs. Black may be a critically acclaimed comedian, but that's because he's making a statement with every joke he tells. A big, loud, and usually very angry statement. The success of Lewis Black's humor is that he points out every fallacy and foible along the way, whether he's discussing the most mundane of events to the most pressing issues facing our country. What he says is often worth thinking about as well as laughing at.
With "The Joke's On US Tour," Black will be at his best, as there's no shortage of material for him to skewer. After all, this is the guy who just told Stephen Colbert that he starts his mornings off with the news and screaming. When he comes to City National Grove of Anaheim, he's going to bring the house down and comedy fans won't want to miss it.
