Who: Lewis Black
What: The Joke’s on Us tour
Where: City Winery, 155 Varick St., 212-608-0555
When: Thursday, March 15, $135 - $225, 8:00 (tickets on sale March 7 at 3:00)
Why: Angry comic Lewis Black has a lot to be angry about these days, perhaps more than ever, so he’s on the road with his latest tour, “The Joke’s on Us,” which makes its only New York stop March 15 at City Winery. Tickets go on sale March 7 at 3:00 to the general public, but the prices are fairly steep to see the DC-born standup comic, actor, author, and Daily Show contributor: It will cost you $135 for a stool, $175 for a reserved seat, $200 for premier seating, and $225 for the VIP treatment. Of course, Black, who is now based in New York City and North Carolina, is always worth the price of admission; we saw him once in conversation at the Rubin with anger-management specialist Dr. Robert Allan as part of the museum’s Brainwave Festival and it was a riot.
