Description

Lewis Black is providing you the opportunity to get whatever the hell is bothering you off your chest! Night after night on the road, Black delivers his wildly popular The Rant Is Due livestream where citizens of the world write in to tell him whatever is pissing them off. Lewis Black channels that anger in ways only a man whose devoted his entire life to ranting can do. The tirades are sometimes big. They are sometimes small. But when filtered through the comedic mind of Black in a live environment, they are always hilarious.

Thanksgiving has passed, and while there's plenty to be thankful for, there's just as much to rant about! Lewis might be thankful for his football team wining this weekend, but he's also just as fired up about the world and how our journalists just can't seem to be good at their job. This week Lewis also took new rants from fans who take aim at Christmas carols and bad teacher appreciation weeks.  This episode is brought to you by Better Help.

As we embark on what might be a very non-traditional Thanksgiving for most across this nation, Lewis reflects on the last few weeks of turmoil. Is he able to bring levity to the situation? You will have to listen for yourself. For the second episode in a row Lewis pulls some fresh user-submitted rants before whisking everything to Austin, TX where he set up shop at the Moody Theater (where they tape the iconic Austin City Limits) in a city where memories of live performances and great food are sorely missed these days.

Lewis returns after a week off and perhaps taking the week of the Presidential Election was the wise choice. Because whew! What a week it was! While its not news that our leader has learned anything new during that time off, this show did. Over the past few months, you fans have been submitting many, many new rants to Lewis and he wants to showcase that. This episode features new rants from you loyal fans submitted in the last few weeks. Then we throw it off to San Antonio, TX - a city Lewis likes to call the margarita of cities. Stay safe out there!

It's Election Day and as the American public is making important decisions about its future at the voting booths, Lewis shares some thoughts he typed on a word processor (in another century) that are just a relevant then as they are now. We visit two destinations in North Carolina and then to Tennessee reading the rants of the people and, as always they never disappoint.

Lewis is fresh off 3 hours of dental surgery and he's learned a few things. Mainly he'd rather be strapped to the chair with a dentist wrenching away at his mouth than dealing with the news of the day and he's probably not the only one who feels this way. This week's rants come from the good people of Milwaukee and the world's best green room and then rolls through Grand Rapids.

It’s that time of the year and we’re not talking about the fucking Candy Corn! We’re talking about election season and right now there seems to be no adults in the room wanting to actually tackle the important topics for the people like the pandemic, relief packages, civil rights, or even determining what even needs to be worked on together, it’s mind boggling! We’re taking a trip through Santa Barbara, Thousand Oaks, and San Diego where, well it seems the fires never seemed to stop between the recording of these rants and present day.  Lewis’ new special, Thanks For Risking Your Life is available now!

Well, it’s another week another round of strange times getting stranger. No, we’re not talking about the impending election, we’re talking about October and fucking pumpkin season and all the nonsense that comes with it. The rants this week take us through beautiful parts of California – Monterrey, Sacramento, and Napa where apparently some of those in the audience feel Lewis has an issue with Millennials. Sadly that’s not true, he just thinks you’re being an asshole for not telling him what app he should use to bring them out to his shows. New episodes arrive every Wednesday.

When you think of the number 13, you probably wouldn’t want to find yourself anywhere near a casino, yet here we are on a run in Atlantic City, NJ at the Borgata. But have no fear, the number is lucky as the rants were particularly inspired as we talk to a rowdy New Jersey gambling audience in a town where only Donald Trump could bankrupt three, count ‘em, three casinos. Unbe-fucking-lievable.  New episodes arrive every Wednesday. Lewis' new special, "Thanks For Risking Your Life" is available now!

Lewis feels good in his undisclosed location. Well that’s not entirely true, because he’s learned about Zoom fatigue and how it makes promo junkets even less fun than they already sometimes are. Oh, and there’s a political debate happening - that’s fun right? So much fun that he’s forced to go and be bad at golf in a somewhat futile attempt to take his mind off of things. Whoooo! This week, the rants are coming from Marietta, OH, Pittsburgh, PA and North Bethesda, MD. Not far from his hometown.  Be sure to pre-order Lewis’ forthcoming stand-up special Thanks For Risking Your Life. Which is available as audio and video on October 6th.

Lewis is back in his NYC bunker marking the end of summer and mourning the loss of RBG while at the same time celebrating her commitment to the cause. While that may seem somber, you can still back and enjoy rants that take us through the Northeast of New London, CT, Northampton, MA and Rutland, VT. Perhaps it will be bright spot in what is officially deemed the greatest shitstorm of our lives. While you looking at your calendar (and we know you are) be sure to mark October 6th as the release of Lewis’ new special, Thanks For Risking Your Life. It will be available for preview on both Pandora and SiriusXM, before the street date, just follow this link https://TLBRecords.lnk.to/Lewis New episodes arrive every Wednesday.

For a brief moment, Lewis has stopped running. He's back in NYC trying to enjoy his Labor Day but just can’t seem to believe reports that American’s feel they’ve gotten better during the Quarantine. Why? Because he sure doesn’t think he has. While home, take the moment to get your teeth fixed as we roll with rants through the middle of America with stops in Elkhart, Indiana then to Glen Ellyn and Springfield, IL. While you are at it, be sure to mark your calendars for October 6th which is when Lewis’ new special, “Thanks For Risking Your Life” is released both on audio and video. It was recorded March 13th, right as the government shutdown was issued and the last performance Lewis did in 2020.  New episodes arrive every Wednesday For advertising opportunities email: advertise@thelaughbutton.com Learn more about your ad choices.

This week, Lewis is coming to you from an undisclosed location and he might not be wearing pants. Call it him trying to reclaim something he’s lost during these trying times or an example that he has completely lost it. One thing is certain though. He hasn’t spent this time wisely attempting to better himself - no new languages learned nor great novels read. This week we find rants from Elgin, IL where people from Baghdad checked in live. We can only assume it’s because they heard that Lewis would be in Elgin. We also check in from St. Louis and Cincinnati, where Lewis is asked by an aspiring comedian if they should write a Full House spinoff and a couple prays for the first words of their infant to not be “f-ck.” New episodes arrive every Wednesday For advertising opportunities email: advertise@thelaughbutton.com Learn more about your ad choices.

This week we’re coming to you from the parking lot of a BBQ restaurant. What’s more American than a tour bus, the open road, and some BBQ? Fresh off a week in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan where we learn, in addition to performing there, Lewis once built a log cabin on a lake decades ago. It’s a fine setting to visit the rants from folks in NY like Troy, Port Washington, Long Island, and then Englewood, NJ.

This run of shows is just outside of where I live in NYC. Starting off in New Brunswick, NJ just down the street from a comedy club where I would start out and right next to a theater where I had a “legendary” run of my play, if you could call 15 nights legendary. If you ever are looking for people with salty takes, New Jersey is one of the best. We also found ourselves in Hershey, PA where an entire city was built around the philanthropic wishes of a chocolatier, it does wonders for your diabetes. Then, a casino in Bethlehem provides the right mix of slot machine abuse and outlet shopping, my mother would be so proud! Even with her penchant to call bullshit on it all.

Lewis is reunited with his tour bus and the road. While live shows are still not possible, being back on the bus offers a reprieve and the comfort of seeing the United States pass by through the window. After a lifetime on the road, having to sit in one place too long during a pandemic offers its own set of torment. Breaking out on the road allows for a re-connection with family before taking to the Northern peninsula of Michigan as rants from the last trip through Peoria, Ann Arbor, and Battle Creek recall less complicated times.

Valentine’s Day weekend brought us to Florida. Besides the lovely weather, we mostly took away from this location the facts that the Orlando Airport is possibly the worst airport in the country, Scientologists have overrun Clearwater, and traffic is a mess. Apparently, we all wasted 97 hours in traffic last year, and nobody paid us for it.

You might think the American Southwest is always a warm place to be, but you’d be wrong! Go there in February and you’ll be in for a surprise. It might also surprise you to learn Tucson is one of the only cities in the Southwest that rank among the worst places to live. But we go there anyway. While there, we dive into rants about my mother questioning retirement, Republican almost dying at my show, and we’re asked the age-old question, “Do we need to curse in all of our rants?” Special thanks to John Bowman for appearing on this episode.

California calling! As we wind our way through the state we learn sometimes things are as literal as they seem. A suggestion for those in charge, if you are going to name your city after a river it might be wise to make sure people can find the actual river! I’ve also always had a love/hate relationship with Los Angeles. Driving there makes me realize I have serious anger issues. And holy shit! does that place make you feel like you have no grasp on this thing called show business. Special thanks to John Bowman for appearing on this episode.

Reno, Nevada has rowdy crowds, but it’s a calmer version of Las Vegas. You should go visit, it’s a comfortable place to lose your money! During this run I’m asked why I haven’t moved to Canada yet and you know what? I don’t know. Perhaps because this run of shows has some really nice theaters to perform in.   Special thanks to John Bowman for appearing on this episode.

Well, we’re here with the first-ever episode of my Rantcast, even though I hate podcasts I’m doing this shit. On this episode, we roll through the Pacific Northwest to find out what really pisses people off. Turns out it’s everything from the complex, like government shutdowns, to the small, like local newspapers, and the weird, like selling out to Al Roker. Enjoy!  Oh, and I’ve been recording these rants for a long, long time. So there are plenty. Prepare to sit back and relax, we've got nothing but time!
