LEWIS BLACK, GRAMMY Award-winning, stand-up comedian, is one of the most prolific and popular performers working today. He executes a brilliant trifecta as a stand-up comedian, actor and author. Receiving critical acclaim, he performs more than 200 nights annually, to sold-out audiences throughout Europe, New Zealand, Canada and the United States. He is one of a few performers to sell out multiple renowned theaters, including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Brooks Atkinson Theatre, New York City Center, the Main Stage at the Mirage in Las Vegas and most recently, a sold-out Broadway run at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in New York City.

His live performances provide a cathartic release of anger and disillusionment for his audience. He is a passionate performer who is a more pissed-off optimist than a mean-spirited curmudgeon. Lewis is the rare comic who can cause an audience to laugh themselves into incontinence while making compelling points about the absurdity of our world.

LEWIS BLACK came into national prominence with his appearances on THE DAILY SHOW in 1996. Those appearances on THE DAILY SHOW led to comedy specials on HBO, Comedy Central, Showtime and Epix. In 2001, he won Best Male Stand-Up at the American Comedy Awards. He has released eight comedy albums, including the 2007 GRAMMY Award-winning The Carnegie Hall Performance. He won his second GRAMMY Award for his album Stark Raving Black and has published three bestselling books: Nothing’s Sacred (Simon & Schuster, 2005), Me of Little Faith (Riverhead Books, 2008) and I’m Dreaming of a Black Christmas (Riverhead Books, 2010).

About Kathleen Madigan:
Over Kathleen Madigan's 25 year career she has performed on nearly every late night show ever made. Leno, Letterman, Conan, Ferguson and most recently in 2015 on the new The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, and Ron White’s Salute To The Troops on CMT, her fifth appearance on the annual show. In 2014, Madigan was nominated for an American Comedy Award for Best Concert Comic and her third one hour special, Madigan Again, was named one of iTunes Best Comedy Albums. Madigan Again, premiered on September 11, 2013 exclusively on Netflix in the U.S., Canada, Europe and Latin America, and is also available on CD, DVD and audio or video download. Previously she's released 5 CDs and 3 DVDs and starred in 2 HBO specials, 3 Comedy Central specials and her previous one hour special, Gone Madigan, premiered on Showtime and is available on Netflix.

So how is it, the Detroit Free Press asks, "that Madigan has yet to be cast as the wise-cracking a) best friend b) office worker or c) martini-swilling mother-in-law in any of countless sitcoms? We're thinking because it's because she's so irreplaceable on the stage. She's described as the funniest woman doing stand-up right now, but no gender qualifier is necessary. Along with Lewis Black, Brian Regan and Jim Gaffigan, she's one of the funniest stand-up comedians of her generation."

She remains the only comedian in the history of NBC's Last Comic Standing to go unchallenged by any other comedian--meaning no comedian would say they were funnier than her. Madigan was a top three finalist in Season 2 and a judge on Season 5.

She's a favorite on nationally syndicated radio shows such as the The Bob and Tom Show and The Stephanie Miller Show. She's also in constant rotation on SIRIUS-XM Radio and is repeated voted #1 audience favorite by listeners.
