This week’s Politically Re-Active finds our hosts meeting up with legendary political comedian Lewis Black, and getting some important questions answered. How did he become “The King of Rant”? What’s making him rant right now? From his early days yelling at walls, to his current “fan rant” driven tour, Black let’s us in on his creative process.
Black has been making regular appearances on The Daily Show since the show began over two decades ago, and he weighs in with a unique perspective on each host.
Of course, with three political comedians in the kitchen, the conversation simmers around the many recent blunders from the current administration, and one lost opportunity for Mario Cantone. The icing on this conversational cake? Lewis Black is a socialist. This episode has lots to unpack, but again, we not only have two, but three political comedians to doing the unpacking.
If you’re feeling the love (or even if you’re angry) then catch Lewis on his fall Rant, White and Blue tour. Grab your tickets at www.lewisblack.com. You can also follow Lewis on Twitter at @TheLewisBlack

It’s the end of season 2 already? We close strong with messages from our listeners and conversations with #BlackLivesMatter co-founder Alicia Garza, and comedian Wyatt Cenac. Garza is an Oakland-based organizer who is currently the Special Projects Director for the National Domestic Workers Alliance. She describes her lasting impressions from the 2016 election cycle, and gives advice for those hoping to be “allies.” Cenac opens up about his experiences on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” and explains why his new TOPIC produced series “aka Wyatt Cenac” focuses on a superhero fighting gentrification in Brooklyn.
