#15 – Are There Any Adults In The Room?

October 21, 2020

It’s that time of the year and we’re not talking about the fucking Candy Corn! We’re talking about election season and right now there seems to be no adults in the room wanting to actually tackle the important topics for the people like the pandemic, relief packages, civil rights, or even determining what even needs to be worked on together, it’s mind boggling! We’re taking a trip through Santa Barbara, Thousand Oaks, and San Diego where, well it seems the fires never seemed to stop between the recording of these rants and present day.

#14 – I Like Millennials, But Don’t Be An Asshole!

October 14, 2020

Well, it’s another week another round of strange times getting stranger. No, we’re not talking about the impending election, we’re talking about October and fucking pumpkin season and all the nonsense that comes with it. The rants this week take us through beautiful parts of California – Monterrey, Sacramento, and Napa where apparently some of those in the audience feel Lewis has an issue with Millennials. Sadly that’s not true, he just thinks you’re being an asshole for not telling him what app he should use to bring them out to his shows.

#13 – Put Your Makeup On, Fix Your Hair Up Pretty…

October 7, 2020

When you think of the number 13, you probably wouldn’t want to find yourself anywhere near a casino, yet here we are on a run in Atlantic City, NJ at the Borgata. But have no fear, the number is lucky as the rants were particularly inspired as we talk to a rowdy New Jersey gambling audience in a town where only Donald Trump could bankrupt three, count ‘em, three casinos. Unbe-fucking-lievable.

#12 – It Gives You a Sense of Existential Dread

September 30, 2020

Lewis feels good in his undisclosed location. Well that’s not entirely true, because he’s learned about Zoom fatigue and how it makes promo junkets even less fun than they already sometimes are. Oh, and there’s a political debate happening – that’s fun right? So much fun that he’s forced to go and be bad at golf in a somewhat futile attempt to take his mind off of things. Whoooo! This week, the rants are coming from Marietta, OH, Pittsburgh, PA and North Bethesda, MD. Not far from his hometown. 

Be sure to pre-order Lewis’ forthcoming stand-up special Thanks For Risking Your Life. Which is available as audio and video on October 6th. But you can pre-order now https://TLBRecords.lnk.to/LewisWE

#11 – You Can Hear The Wild Applause

September 23, 2020

Lewis is back in his NYC bunker marking the end of summer and mourning the loss of RBG while at the same time celebrating her commitment to the cause. While that may seem somber, you can still back and enjoy rants that take us through the Northeast of New London, CT, Northampton, MA and Rutland, VT. Perhaps it will be bright spot in what is officially deemed the greatest shitstorm of our lives.

While you looking at your calendar (and we know you are) be sure to mark October 6th as the release of Lewis’ new special, Thanks For Risking Your Life. It will be available for preview on both Pandora and SiriusXM, before the street date, just follow this link https://TLBRecords.lnk.to/Lewis

#10 – The Ball’s In Your Court JT, Good Luck!

September 16, 2020

For a brief moment, Lewis has stopped running. He’s back in NYC trying to enjoy his Labor Day but just can’t seem to believe reports that American’s feel they’ve gotten better during the Quarantine. Why? Because he sure doesn’t think he has. While home, take the moment to get your teeth fixed as we roll with rants through the middle of America with stops in Elkhart, Indiana then to Glen Ellyn and Springfield, IL.

While you are at it, be sure to mark your calendars for October 6th which is when Lewis’ new special, “Thanks For Risking Your Life” is released both on audio and video. It was recorded March 13th, right as the government shutdown was issued and the last performance Lewis did in 2020.

#9 – The Idea Seemed Thrilling At The Time

September 9, 2020

This week, Lewis is coming to you from an undisclosed location and he might not be wearing pants. Call it him trying to reclaim something he’s lost during these trying times or an example that he has completely lost it. One thing is certain though. He hasn’t spent this time wisely attempting to better himself – no new languages learned nor great novels read. This week we find rants from Elgin, IL where people from Baghdad checked in live. We can only assume it’s because they heard that Lewis would be in Elgin. We also check in from St. Louis and Cincinnati, where Lewis is asked by an aspiring comedian if they should write a Full House spinoff and a couple prays for the first words of their infant to not be “f-ck.”

#8 – Otherwise, Stop The Bullshit

September 2, 2020

This week we’re coming to you from the parking lot of a BBQ restaurant. What’s more American than a tour bus, the open road, and some BBQ? Fresh off a week in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan where we learn, in addition to performing there, Lewis once built a log cabin on a lake decades ago. It’s a fine setting to visit the rants from folks in NY like Troy, Port Washington, Long Island, and then Englewood, NJ.

#7 – I Need To Go Some Place Where People Are Bitter

August 26, 2020

This run of shows is just outside of where I live in NYC. Starting off in New Brunswick, NJ just down the street from a comedy club where I would start out and right next to a theater where I had a “legendary” run of my play, if you could call 15 nights legendary. If you ever are looking for people with salty takes, New Jersey is one of the best. We also found ourselves in Hershey, PA where an entire city was built around the philanthropic wishes of a chocolatier, it does wonders for your diabetes. Then, a casino in Bethlehem provides the right mix of slot machine abuse and outlet shopping, my mother would be so proud! Even with her penchant to call bullshit on it all.

#6 – The Small Space Where Comics Go To Die

August 19, 2020

Lewis is reunited with his tour bus and the road. While live shows are still not possible, being back on the bus offers a reprieve and the comfort of seeing the United States pass by through the window. After a lifetime on the road, having to sit in one place too long during a pandemic offers its own set of torment. Breaking out on the road allows for a re-connection with family before taking to the Northern peninsula of Michigan as rants from the last trip through Peoria, Ann Arbor, and Battle Creek recall less complicated times.
