Theater: Richard Rodgers / 226 West 46th Street, New York, NY, 10036

Synopsis: 

Lewis Black's live performances provide a cathartic release of anger and disillusionment for his audience. He is a passionate performer who is a more pissed-off optimist than mean-spirited curmudgeon. Lewis is the rare comic who can cause an audience to laugh themselves into incontinence while making compelling points about the absurdity of our world.

    October 10, 2012: That dark cloud hanging over the Richard Rodgers Theater on West 46th Street for the next week or so is not some freak of the weather. It’s the permanent psychic accessory trailed by the comedian Lewis Black, who has brought his evening of angry-man stand-up to Broadway for eight performances through Oct. 20. “Running on Empty,” as the show is called, finds Mr. Black in fine, sputtering form, exuding an air of exhausted disgust at the state of the country and the state of the world that will surely resonate with audiences feeling similarly grim as the grinding last stages of the presidential election loom.

    Still Mad As Hell

    Frank Scheck

    October 11, 2012: The years haven’t exactly mellowed Lewis Black. But why would they? If they had, he wouldn’t have an act. He gets angry so we don’t have to.
