I consider myself REALLY open-minded when it comes to comedy and stand-up comedy. Demetri Martin is my favorite, but I also like Bill Hicks, Dave Chappelle, Eddie Murphy, Zach Galifianakis, Richard Pryor, George Lopez, Patton Oswalt Steve Martin, etc. I even think Dane Cook and Sarah Silverman are alright. George Carlin isn't bad, but not my cup of tea.

I don't hate stand-up comedians too often. Carlos Mencia is one rare comedian I hate, but I also cannot understand how people find Lewis Black funny. I think he is ridiculously annoying, yet I've never met anyone who feels the same way. It's easy to find someone who hates Dane Cook, Sarah Silverman or Bill Hicks, but I was wondering if anyone feels the same way as I do about Lewis Black?

Never seen any of his stuff - got any youtube links? I'm too lazy atm.

Is Lewis Black the guy that just yells a lot and rants about random things? If so, I don't find him funny.

Yeah, I don't think I've seen his stand up but I've seen him in a few programs (including his show the root of all evil) and I don't find him funny at all.

That said I also hate Carlos Mencia, Sarah Silverman, Dane Cook (for the most part), Katt Williams and countless others who are thrown on comedy central.

Lewis Black appeals to more politically minded people, I think. Or just people who agree with his political views. I like him a lot, even though I'm not politically minded. I'm a fan of his speech and mannerisms. He's not so much a comedian as he is a really good speaker, he knows how to use language to really deliver his point, and I like that. It's entertaining.

the root of all evil really was a ****ty show, but it wasnt really what his comedy is like. since when do people hate sarah silverman? cook, mencia, and williams yes, but sarah's show isnt that bad....

Really?

I think he's a poor speaker, all he does is yell and use profanities to try to emphasize his points. Plus I find him quite pretentious and obnoxious.

His persona is that of an angry old man, he's supposed to swear a lot. And he doesn't yell all that often, only when it counts. Often he'll divide his act into stories and as each story progresses he'll get more and more heated. It's fun to watch.

I don't know, I watched a few episodes of Sarah's show and I never found it to be funny. Plus Sarah's mannerisms piss me off like Lewis Black's too.

i dont like him, he is the same kind of annoying as the mom on malcolm in the middle, i dont find people yelling and bitching to be very funny
#22
he can be funny. sometimes he is anoying, which is most of the time when i dont agree with what he is saying. hes sorta what i imagine it would be like if i mated john stewart and george carlin. unfortunately, the government refuses to fund my research.

Lewis Black just isn't funny. He just talks, but in a loud voice, about things that are obvious and/or political. About as funny as animal abuse.

I don't always find him funny, but I usually find him entertaining, just like how I don't always laugh at the Simpsons, but I always enjoy watching the show. Remember, not everyone finds the same things funny. I, for one, think that George Lopez is one of the worst comedians in the world. However, the TS seems to find him funny. Does my hating him make him a bad comedian? No, and the TS liking him doesn't make him a good comedian.

I agree completely. Lewis Black and Carlos Mencia are the two least funny men on the planet.

Lewis Black is alright if you follow the news and have a good sense of the world around you...

As for Zach Galifianakis, I don't get how people find him funny. I saw one act he did that was eh, and everything else I've seen of his is pretty crappy. No one will ever beat Jim Gaffigan, Stephen Lynch, and Patton Oswalt. Dan Cummins also had a hilarious act on Comedy Central Presents. Kyle Dunnigan (that guy who plays the serial killer on Reno 911) was also hilarious on CCP.

George Lopez bores me. Dane Cook has some funny bits, but I think he's certainly overrated. Sarah Silverman isn't very funny, but she's not bad. Her show would be completely stupid without Brian Posehn. ^_^

Funniest part of that whole video:





but in all honesty, lewis black is funny.

people started to criticize him, how he yells at everything in his jokes, thus the bandwagon was created and everyone hopped on, and agreed that lewis black wasnt funny, simply because he yells about everything. its like zakk wylde and pinch harmonics. people say zakk wylde isnt good simply because he rapes the use of pinch harmonics.

look past the fact that hes loud. hes actually funny.

-_- I saw Zach's improv once on TV at like 2 in the morning, and he just rambled on about random things, with no real point. Not in the sense that it was part of his style, but as if he just didn't know what to say.
