Comedian Lewis Black at the Egyptian Thursday


The hot-tempered comedian Lewis Black, known for his irascible segments on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,” is coming to DeKalb this Thursday, October 6th at 8pm. Black will perform at the Egyptian Theatre as part of his “In God We Rust” tour.

The Grammy Award-winning comedian, who has produced six albums, authored two best-selling books and appeared numerous times on TV since the mid-1990s, is known for his cathartic rants on subjects ranging from politics to religion to absurd everyday moments audiences take for granted.

“He is a passionate performer who is a more pissed off optimist than mean-spirited curmudgeon,” a news release said.
