Did You Know?

Trivia:

His birth name, Schwartz, is derived from the German word "schwarz," which has the same meaning as his stage name, Black. He has joked that he dropped the name Schwartz because "I'm ashamed of my Jewishness." However, the comedy group Stella (2005)'s uniting theme is the 3 members' Jewishness (Black, Michael Showalter, and David Wain). See more »
