Do you look at the nutritional content label on a bottle of plain water and expect to see anything but zeros? If yes, then Lewis Black isn't for you. If no, then you will find a soul-mate in Lewis Black.
His humor is based on every-day observations, and pointing out the head-shaking, leg-twitching, convulsion enabling wrongness of those observations.
But unlike some comedians, he doesn't yell at you, he yell's with you. He's just as flabbergasted as you are, but makes you laugh about it, instead of cry.
Make sure you watch until the final credits. It's rare that a performer comes back on stage for a bow, and you actually feel that he is grateful that you listened.
