Additional Product InformationFrom his first Comedy Central special to his recent "educational" Tax Day special, catch the unique brand of commentary that has made Lewis Black a fixture on "The Daily Show" since 1996. He delivers his rapid-fire observations on favorite topics such as politics, pop culture, and the general state of today's world. Also features never before aired segments produced exclusively for Comedy Central of Black's visits to both the Democratic and Republican National conventions. Catch him during his co-headlining comedy tour with Dave Attell from September through December.
Comedy Central's jittery, apoplectic commentator on all things absurd in politics and culture is superb on this disc's collection of four half-hour cable specials and bonus features. Fans and newcomers get a chance to see how much the comic has grown since his delightful 1998 show, in which Black characteristically sputtered this bit of social-scientific criticism: "It's absolutely stupid that we've lost the ozone layer. We've got men, rockets, Saran Wrap--fix it!" Black attacks Bill Clinton for obscuring the meaning of infidelity ("If curling is an Olympic sport, oral sex is adultery!"), Y2K hype, flu shots, America's power elite, Ross Perot ("He's the kid in Deliverance all growed-up!"), and even delivers a "Taxes 101" college lecture ("What would help IRS forms? Verbs!"). Bonus features include Black's "Indecision 2000" inserts--caustic commentary about the last Republican and Democrat conventions--for Jon Stewart's show. Highly entertaining stuff. --Tom Keogh.
