    He is favorite comedian with an anger that borders on a mental breakdown. The first book I read was Nothing's Sacred and I was hooked on his take on politics, religion, trends and other cultural items. The way he brings out the truth in so many way is brilliant.

    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!
