Beep's Pick: Lewis Black: Stark Raving Black
Why I picked this film: I've been a huge fan of Lewis Black for years, and I was really looking forward to something that wasn't a movie. Not that I'm getting sick of movies, but it's nice to get something different.
Beeps: Lewis Black... his tirades are legendary. He's not what I would call a funny comic, but rather that rare breed of comic that makes you think, and then explodes with a witty commonsensical outburst. This DVD had several hysterical moments, but also several points that dragged on for a bit too long. This special was 80 minutes, and probably should have been trimmed to 60 minutes or less. I've seen 2 of Lewis Black's other DVD's and this was the weakest of the 3. Worthy of a watch if you're already a fan, if not, I would recommend Lewis Black: Red, White, and Screwed over this. 2.5 stars.
Apes: Lets start by saying I really enjoy Black's stand up comedy! However, this isn't a normal Lewis Black special. It seemed far more political and far less funny. His shows are always political but its always a funny political sort of view this time it was all about the economy and old age and it came across with very little humor. I really didn't enjoy it! I agree with Beeps if you're a fan watch the special. If you want to see Lewis Black for the first time watch something else! I give this 2 1/2 stars.
Overall we give this film 2 1/2 stars.
