Among my least favorite of Lewis Black's specials.
11 October 2016 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

I like Lewis Black and his ultra-high strung style of comedy. He certainly is NOT for everyone and his profuse use of the f-bomb is ample reason not to show any of his stand-up DVDs to your mother, children or Father O'Reilly. But he is terribly insightful and terribly funny.

That being said, however, this was my least favorite of the half a dozen or so Black specials I have watched. Most of it is because often his rants seem less funny than just angry. There is a fine line here and Black usually does a great job of balancing the two. But here I just found myself laughing less than normal. And, it's not just because the special features him bashing Republicans--you'd expect that since it was made in 2006 plus Black is also careful to say that the Democrats aren't a whole lot different. No, to me it just seems like Black was having a relatively flat stand-up routine...and that's okay since he has hit many, many bullseyes in other DVDs. Still worth seeing...just not one that had be in stitches.
