    He did release a new one, The Prophet. Sure, it's material recorded in 1990, but still...

    He needs to release a new album already. I know he's still got it. His bit on Glenn Beck on the Daily Show was easily some of his best.

    Easily my favourite active comedian these days. Lewis Black is the master of turning pissed off raging into something funny for everybody.

    I just realized he had a channel too! This guy has so much to say on everything, he needs a lastfm page! I'm gearing up watching his old stuff to get ready for his new material! Stark Raving Black will definitely out do the rest!

    I didn't realize Lewis Black had a channel on last.fm until just now. What have I been missing? Although I saw him live a few years ago, I have yet to still catch up on everything he's done standup wise. It's time to do that! Especially in time for his new special coming out next week, stark raving black, be prepared everyone, I have a feeling it'll be his best special YET!
