SOLD OUT! LEGENDS OF COMEDY: RICHARD LEWIS has been spoken of by the NY Times, among others, in the same breath as Freud, Woody Allen and great jazz musicians.

One of many to do so is Howard Reich of the Chicago Tribune who noted, “To this day, [Lenny] Bruce’s foremost heir — comedian RICHARD LEWIS — conveys the lightning energy of a solo by bebop icon Charlie Parker.”

Comedy Central has recognized RICHARD LEWIS as one of the top 50 stand-up comedians of all time and he was charted on GQ Magazine’s list of the ’20th Century’s Most Influential Humorists’. Lewis’ neuroses have become a part of our vernacular with “I had a date from Hell!” In 2006 Yale’s Book of Quotations attributed the now-common phrase, “the [blank]  from hell” to him.

Lewis is an integral part of HBO’s nine seasons of “Curb Your Enthusiasm”, alongside his longtime friend, Larry David. The free-wheeling spirit of the show fit like a glove. He’s been in a broad spectrum of films, ranging from the cult-classic mocumentary, “Diary of a Young Comic”, on to “Leaving Las Vegas” and the critically acclaimed indie, “Drunks”.  He’s released a dvd pack “A Bundle Of Nerves” that spanned 4 decades of his varied work. In 2000 he wrote and had published his memoir, “Another Great Depression”  and his many talents continue to keep new fans energized by his honesty and brilliance.
