Stand-up comedian Lewis Black will perform Saturday, Sept. 19, at 8 p.m. in the University of Wyoming College of Arts and Sciences auditorium.

Tickets cost $15 for UW students and $26 for non-students. Tickets will be sold beginning Tuesday, Sept. 1, for students and Friday, Sept. 4, for non-students. All tickets can be purchased at the Wyoming Union information desk and the Fine Arts box office and also online at or by calling (307) 766-6666.

The Associated Students of UW Concerts and Convocations sponsor the show.

"Concerts and Convocations has been looking at bringing Lewis Black to campus for the last four years. Until now, we have not been able to afford him," says Jeniece Tygesen, Concerts and Convocations committee chair. "We are excited to bring this caliber of comedian to UW."

As a stand-up comedian, author, playwright and actor, Black is known for his unique comedy style. This often includes simulating a mental breakdown or an increasingly angry rant, ridiculing history, politics, religion, trends and cultural phenomena. Black hosted Comedy Central's "The Root of All Evil" and makes regular appearances on "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" delivering his "Back in Black" commentary segment.

Black's movie appearances include "Accepted," "Man of the Year," "Un-accompanied Minors" and many other cameo roles in major motion pictures. He is also well known for his popular HBO special.
