Could be the funniest of the uncensored stand-up specials of the year...
4 July 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Lewis Black has proved himself a biting, comic genius through his segments on the Daily Show, with his few though precious comedy specials on Comedy Central (one of them, Taxed Beyond Belief, is uncensored on the DVD version), and his albums. The stuff he has for his HBO debut is nothing short than awesome, as he breaks down concepts in society. He takes on the rich, water companies, milk, the war in Iraq, Homeland security, and flying, among other points of interest. While his style might not be for everyone, his dead-pan exaggerations and sarcasm, sudden outbursts of anger (akin to Sam Kinison but on a different playing field), and frankness, carries alot of weight in current times. One could say he's a logical extension of the kind of comedian George Carlin. But Black is, like Carlin, original on his own terms. Worth to catch on TV! A
