Comedian Lewis Black made an appearance on “The Late Show” with host Stephen Colbert this week and explained how he manages to stay so angry all of the time.
Anyone who is familiar with Black’s style of comedy knows that it revolves around smart perceptions and a healthy amount of unbridled fury.
“I wake up in the morning, I’m severely optimistic — more than anybody could imagine — I believe that today is going to be the day that America figures it all out,” Black said. “I’m convinced of it. We’ve made every mistake humanly possible, haven’t we? So today, just by accident, we might stumble onto the answer. And then I pick up the paper and go, ‘Son of a bitch!’”
I like to think that we all feel the way Black does these days.
