MAN OF THE YEAR

LEWIS BLACK (Eddie Langston) is at home on the stage as an actor, playwright and stand-up comedian. He has performed his caustic, cranky, bile-spewing, dead-on social and political comedy throughout Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the United States…for which he has received critical acclaim and occasional hate mail. As "America's Foremost Commentator on Everything,” he is a weekly political commentator on Comedy Central's The Daily Show With Jon Stewart.

Black is a graduate of the Yale School of Drama. As a playwright, he has authored over 40 plays that have been produced in theaters across the country. As an actor, Black has appeared in such films as Jacob's Ladder, The Hard Way, The Night We Never Met and Woody Allen's Hannah and Her Sisters. This summer, he co-starred in Universal Pictures' comedy Accepted, with Justin Long. Also in 2006, he will co-star with Wilmer Valderrama in this Christmas' Unaccompanied Minors for Warner Bros.

His television acting credits include The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd, Homicide: Life on the Street , Mad About You and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. Black has been featured on CBS Sports' NFL Today and in Final Four coverage. He is also a regular guest on Late Night With Conan O'Brien.

Black received the award for "Funniest Male Stand-Up Comic” at the American Comedy Awards in 2001. In 2004, he was recognized by the Pollstar Awards for his blockbuster comedy tour Rules of Enragement. This year, he received a Grammy nomination for his comedy CD of the same name. His new CD, "Lewis Black: The Carnegie Hall Performance,” was released in April 2006.

A milestone for Black was starring in a one-hour stand-up special for HBO, Black on Broadway, which was also a successful DVD release. His second HBO special from the Warner Theatre, in Washington, D.C., Red, White and Screwed, aired in June of this year. Black's first book, Nothing's Sacred (April 2005, Simon and Schuster), debuted on The New York Times bestseller list.
