The way this year’s presidential primary season has gone so far, comedian Lewis Black wishes he could’ve written it as a novel.
“I think it reads better as fiction than it does as reality,” Black said about the drama surrounding the campaign trail this spring.
Black, 67, is no stranger to the literary life. The funnyman first started out as a playwright in New York City in the 1980s after graduating with an MFA from Yale. It was only later that he ventured into the world of standup, where he’s since been acclaimed as one of the top comics of all time, and become known for his rage-fueled rants and scathing sarcasm. Friday, May 20, he brings that venom to the Kalamazoo State Theatre.
