Quotes

Lewis Black: I was home alone watching George Bush speak on television. So it was just really the two of us. And as I listened to him, I realized, that one of us... was nuts! And for the first time ever, I went, "Wow, it's not me!"

Insightful
31 August 2006 | by nattyspamSee all my reviews

Black describes his outlook well, but his insight into subsets of various American cultures from Jews to lobbyists (wait - are they different?) is certainly less than opaque in this hilarious routine. I find myself repeating the jokes - even translating them for relatives from foreign countries - to the delighted laughter of many. Linus Pauling - Nobel laureate in Chemistry - once said words to the effect that he hoped all the horrible racial epithets would be used to the point that they had no more shock value. Like Chappell and others today, Black certainly helps us all down that road. His commentary brings all manner of issues - contemporary to biblically archaic - into sharp focus, forcing the conflicted laughter over the human situation from Moses to Bush and Cheney. Highly recommended for repeated consumption.
