Seasonal Special Happenings

Black is Back

When: Sat., Feb. 21 2015

Comedian Lewis Black, who brings his The Rant is Due: Part Deux tour to the State Theater tonight at 8, says he doesn’t have a rant about Cleveland. But he sort of does. “You have gambling there now,” he says. “That’s a really good move. I’m sure that will improve things. I haven’t been there since the casino came in. I was there and they were supposed to have it built but it fell down or some shit.” For the current tour, he’s been talking about topics that include current events, social media, politics and anything else that exposes the hypocrisy and madness in the world. “There’s a chunk about mental health that I’m still working on,” he says of his routine. “There’s a big chunk about traveling. I traveled through Europe last summer performing, so I talk about that. We got into whatever nonsense these idiots in leadership did over the last day or the last week. It’s essentially whatever the leadership has refused to deal with that week. At the end of each show, and the reason why we call it The Rant is Due: Part Deux, the audience can ask questions or write whatever they want. That’s whatever audience we have on the web and whatever audience we’re streaming to. For the last 15 minutes or half hour, the folks out there ask questions and/or address things they pick up on. It’s like two shows at this point.” Sounds like a blast. Tickets range from $25 to $65. (Niesel)
