Nothing's Sacred by Lewis Black - KBOD

Let's continue the comedy theme with a book from one of the world's greatest stand up comedians. I absolutely LOVE Lewis Black. However, I will warn those that are sensitive to certain issues (religion, politics, etc) to skip this one. However, if you love a good time and can laugh at anything funny, you must read this book.

Nothing's Sacred by Lewis Black 
$11.99 (4/3/2012)

You've seen him on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart offering up his trademark angry observational humor on everything from politics to pop culture. You've seen his energetic stand-up performances on HBO, Comedy Central, and in venues across the globe. Now, for the first time, Lewis Black translates his volcanic eruptions into book form in Nothing's Sacred, a collection of rants against stupidity and authority, which oftentimes go hand in hand.

With subversive wit and intellectual honesty, Lewis examines the events of his life that shaped his antiauthoritarian point of view and developed his comedic perspective. Growing up in 1950s suburbia when father knew best and there was a sitcom to prove it, he began to regard authority with a jaundiced eye at an early age. And as that sentiment grew stronger with each passing year, so did his ability to hone in on the absurd.

True to form, he puts common sense above ideology and distills hilarious, biting commentary on all things politically and culturally relevant. "No one is safe from Lewis Black's comic missiles." (New York Times)

You have been warned....
