Lewis Black lets his fury fly on stage as he brings his latest stand-up show to Saban Theatre. Known for his no-holds-barred rants on The Daily Show and on the stand-up circuit, Black's shows are a much-needed catharsis for anyone who's fed up with the state of politics and society. An acclaimed comic, actor and author at the top of his game, Black has a way of raging against the machine that not only expresses what so many feel, but also captures the black comedy that lurks in our political processes and popular culture. His ability to turn anger into laughter has earned the comedian sell-out shows in his eight appearances on Broadway and two Grammys for best comedy album. Learn More

interesting and entertaining, even if it is a bit long at over 3 hours... recommended for fans of Broadway musicals
the Saban theater was very nice (similar Art Deco style and elegance to the Pantages) and I hope to see other productions there some time now that I've discovered it

About the Ticket Supplier: Southland Theatre Artists Goodwill Event (S.T.A.G.E.)
Back in 1984, at a time of mass fear and confusion about AIDS, a small group of friends in the Los Angeles theatre community came together in an effort to combat the devastating impact the disease was having on their friends and loved ones. Actor/writer/director Michael Kearns and the late writer/director James Carroll Pickett approached producer Susan Obrow and accomplished director David Galligan to create the first Southland Theatre Artists Goodwill Event (S.T.A.G.E.). Each S.T.A.G.E. benefit is a unique way for the Los Angeles performing arts community to raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS service agencies, such as AIDS Project Los Angeles, while demonstrating love and support for those living with and affected by the disease. Over the past 25 years, S.T.A.G.E. productions have raised more than $5 million dollars to support HIV/AIDS charities throughout Southern California. 25 Years and Still Persevering!
