The Truth, According To Lewis Black

Lewis Black is ready to drop some truth bombs. He’s unveiled the routing for a fall outing that’s being called “The Emperor’s New Clothes: The Naked Truth Tour.”

The comedian should have plenty of material to work with, thanks to this ridiculous election cycle. A tour journal from Black’s website notes that he “does a fine impression of the hapless Ben Carson, complete with the former GOP candidate’s blank expressions and meaningless hand-gestures.”

The Show At Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa, Rancho Mirage, Calif.
