Comedian and political provocateur Lewis Black, formerly of the Daily Show, says the kind of things we all want to say. His comments include the devolution of our political prospects: I believe in 12 years, well be voting for plants. And then there are comments on home and holiday: Americans are fat all year round, but the holidays are when we really hit our stride. And you can bet the food we eat will be just as unhealthy as the families we're forced to visit. Blacks stand-up is just as much an exercise in anger management as comedy routine. He articulates the mental breakdown we all deserve yet cant indulge in because were not rich enough, famous enough, or as funny as he is. But take solace in the fact that his angry musings give a voice to the disenchanted. Obesity and political stalemates arent always something to laugh about, but in the words of Black at least [you] dont have smallpox!
Lewis Black will perform Thursday at Hard Rock Live (1 Seminole Way, Hollywood). Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets start at $44. Call 954-797-5531 or visit seminolehardrockhollywood.com.
