DVD TV Show Reviews

 Lewis Black: Stark Raving Black

  Review by Suzanne 6/20/10

My husband and I are big fans of Lewis Black.  We have all of his DVD's.  That makes it even more disappointing when we watched this DVD. It is not nearly as funny as his previous ones.  I mean, we laughed some, but parts were just not funny.

At the beginning of the show, he makes a show about how people are asking him how he will be funny now that Bush is not in the white house. Sadly, it appears that this is a prophetic question.  Apparently he does need Bush in the white house to make funny jokes.

I hope he gets funnier on his next DVD! If you are not very picky, or you are a big fan of his, maybe you will still like "Stark Raving Black". If so, you should try it out. Humor is so subjective.  People like lots of comedy shows that I don't like, so who knows?


More info:

The DVD will be available nationwide on Tuesday, June 15th.

Shot at the historic Fillmore Theatre in Detroit, "Stark Raving Black" features Black serving up his biting social and political commentary on current events, guiding his audience through a catalogue of the woes of the world such as the absurdities of aging (60 is NOT the new 40!) to the pitfalls of becoming a “mainstream” comedian to the insanity of Washington and Wall Street.

On Tuesday, June 15, "Lewis Black: Stark Raving Black" Will Be Released Uncensored On DVD  --An Extended Version With 35 Minutes Of Additional Stand-Up Not Aired On COMEDY CENTRAL. Also Includes Feature Length Documentary "Basic Black"

Lewis Black uses his natural talent for hiding subtle comedy inside explosive outbursts to full effect in this new one-hour stand-up event.  Compelled by his passions and discontentedness with the absurdities of the world, he erupts in hand-shaking, body-trembling motion spewing of diatribe-laced dialectic comedy.  The network television premiere of "Lewis Black: Stark Raving Black" debuts Saturday, June 12 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on COMEDY CENTRAL.

On Tuesday, June 15, "Lewis Black: Stark Raving Black" will be released nationwide on DVD by COMEDY CENTRAL Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment, CD by COMEDY CENTRAL Records (marks the Grammy-winning label's 100th release) and download-to-own including iTunes and Amazon Video On Demand.  In addition, the special will be available in standard and high definition versions on Xbox LIVE Marketplace, Zune and Playstation Store.

Shot at the historic Fillmore Theatre in Detroit, "Stark Raving Black" features Black serving up his biting social and political commentary on current events.  Black guides his audience through a catalogue of the woes of the world such as the absurdities of aging (60 is NOT the new 40!) to the pitfalls of becoming a “mainstream” comedian to the insanity of Washington and Wall Street.  He carefully controls his performance with the same mastery of craft as a musician does, from blistering to blithe, in the turn of a word.

"Lewis Black: Stark Raving Black" DVD is uncensored and features an extended version of the stand-up event (35 minutes not aired on COMEDY CENTRAL) and the 70-minute documentary "Basic Black."  Also included is a 70-minute documentary on Lewis Black’s life and career titled Basic Black. The documentary gives an intimate portrait of what it’s like to “lick every inch of the ladder” on the way to becoming one of the most successful comedians in America.

Here is an Exclusive Lewis Black clip from his “Stark Raving Black” DVD with you that you’re not going to find anywhere else:
