Lewis Black’s shtick is to take on gigantic, complicated political matters and whittle them down into a hilarious, exasperated one-liner. Like Jon Stewart, Black does this in large part to shame the news.
His stand-up is explicitly political, but rather than lean too far in one direction, he spews hate at both Democrats and Republicans equally. In the past, for example, he’s joked: “What's the difference between a Democrat and a Republican? A Democrat blows, a Republican sucks.”
