To employ the cliché, you have been living under a rock if you havent heard of Lewis Black. Hes particularly necessary in these trying times, when his role as pleasantly bitter pundit is not just supremely funny its needed. Comic relief from the alternate universe our world has become is always better sprinkled with the kind of sarcastic intelligence Black is so good at. On Saturday, hell bring his In God We Rust tour to Hard Rock Live at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino (1 Seminole Way, Hollywood). And recent events guarantee a good deal of poking and prodding at our social ideals and current state of affairs. Visit ticketmaster.com, or call 800-745-3000 to get a chance to let the man make you laugh at yourself while criticizing the man. Tickets cost $44 to $104, depending on seating. Show starts at 8 p.m. (An additional note from Hard Rock: Tickets for the canceled Lewis Black show for December 30, 2010, are not valid for the May 21, 2011 show.) Visit hardrocklivehollywoodfl.com.
