No disappointment
1 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was pleasantly surprised by this comedy special. Over the past few years, Lewis Black has become one of my favorite comedians because with the way the world has become, Lewis Black sees the real deal and reveals it to his audience, with a twist, his humor and mannerisms and comedy. He allows us to laugh at all the quirks in the government and politics, and being one that doesn't follow that stuff I learn a lot from his stand up but also enjoy the heck out of his performances! Lewis Black is not incredibly vulgar but he has a few choice words that I wouldn't want my kids to hear if I had them. He is very sweet at times, but very blunt and so you never know what to expect out of him.
