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.

C'mon, meet the parents
1 December 2014 | by estreet-evaSee all my reviews

65 year old Lewis Black gives the AARP POV to the standard comedy topics of technology, travel ("not every state deserves to be a state"), masturbation ("whenever I hear someone say they work from home, I know what they mean") and other staples. Black trades more on his crazed Uncle delivery than he does on actual material but he does it well enough to be watchable. As a bonus, we get to see his parents. At 95 and 94 years old respectively, the elder Blacks apparently were dragged out of the casino to dutifully sit through their son's set at Atlantic City's Borgata (it probably beats having to watch him jump off the high dive). Some of the funnier moments of the show occur when the camera catches them not actually paying attention probably a blessing on some of Black's raunchier passages. In short, while not very original, Black brings a diverse perspective to social media topics in a media dominated by thirty-somethings.
