Lewis Black: The Rant is Due

When: Sat., Nov. 15, 8 p.m. 2014

When Bill Hicks hopped off this ride, people were still using America Online, and George Carlin’s final special features a bit about honest-to-god person-to-person phone calls (remember those?), so the only person left to rant about Facebook is Lewis Black. He does so masterfully (“Doesn’t anyone do anything anymore?”) on his latest special, Old Yeller, but Black, like Hicks and Carlin, doesn’t waste real ire on the easy marks. He’s at his most rabid with his jaws locked on the flank of the kind of big game—Social Security, health care, gun control—that most of today’s comics are too timid to even attempt stalk.
