Storyline

In his ninth comedy special, Lewis Black tears into a country that is going nowhere at the speed of light. "Old Yeller" weaves the riotous tale of a country that is so strung out on ADD that it can't see straight. In his rabid attack, Mr. Black even turns on himself--and his entire generation. From cable television to the computer, from Facebook to Twitter, Mr. Black rages about the prison we've insanely created for ourselves. He snarls at the country's failure to find alternative energy sources while creating cell phones out of the realm of science fiction. He mauls our nation's leaders for their laughably inept handling of social security and health care--and failing to provide help on any level whatsoever. As Mr. Black puts it, "What are you going to do when the Democrats are dumb, the Republicans are stupid and the Tea Party doesn't even know what day it is?" He takes what makes us crazy and makes it funny. It's a night of live comedy you won't forget. . . but if you do, it's ... Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Lewis Black: My parents' generation passed onto my generation Social Security, and it seems that we were supposed to pass that on. And, um, I wish somebody had told us. There were no memos, nothing. You know, the big argument will be going on and on and on about how to make Social Security work. And the Democrats and Republicans will tell you whatever they want to about it, and you can believe whatever you want about it.

Probably not a stand-up act to watch with your mother!
16 August 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I like Lewis Black's stand-up act, though I have two reservations. First, he is NOT family-friendly and uses TONS of crude language. This would NOT be a terrific show to watch with your mom (though Black's mother and father were there for this particular show) or kids or Father O'Reilly. Trust me on this. Second, though I love his abrasive humor, I can only take it on occasional doses because he is so incredibly negative. Yes, he's usually RIGHT about how screwed up things are and how stupid people can be, but a steady dose off Black might make me too cynical and grumpy. These being said, "Old Yeller" is yet another wonderful routine from Black. His abrasive, angry and negative act is VERY insightful and I especially loved his insight into how his generation has NO IDEA what they are talking about and how they have opinions about EVERYTHING regardless of this! Very funny and well worth seeing.
