What to Expect

Fans attending Lewis Black’s 2024 “Goodbye Yeller Brick Road” tour can expect:

  • Plenty of Black’s signature angry ranting, raving, and finger-pointing as he tackles current events, politics, religion, and the absurdities of everyday life. No topic will be off-limits as he spares no side of the political or cultural divide from his acerbic wit.
  • Material heavily inspired by the biggest news stories and controversies of the moment, filtered through the lens of Black’s experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Spending so much time in isolation drew his attention to life’s irksome details which will surely be targets of his comedic rage.
  • Intellectual explorations woven between the fits of anger, delving into deeper philosophical and existential questions that showcase Black’s background in playwriting and drama. His perpetually enraged stage persona is balanced by strong, thought-provoking undercurrents.
  • Possible guest appearances by up-and-coming comedians2. While opening acts have not been announced yet, Black often uses his tours to give exposure to rising talents in the world of stand-up comedy.

Above all, expect an unfiltered, cathartic comedy experience as Black says farewell to touring after over 35 years on the road. It will be a historic chance to see one of the most unique and impactful voices in stand-up comedy as he prepares to close a legendary chapter of his career.


Black first gained wide exposure in the late 1990s and early 2000s through his “Back in Black” segments on The Daily Show, where his weekly rants about politics and pop culture helped establish him as a unique comedic voice.

  • Over his 35+ year stand-up career, Black has released over a dozen comedy specials and albums, including the Grammy-winning “The Carnegie Hall Performance” in 2007. He won a second Grammy in 2011 for his album “Stark Raving Black”.
  • Black is also an accomplished playwright, having written over 40 plays. In the 1980s, he served as the playwright-in-residence at the West Bank Cafe Downstairs Theatre Bar in NYC.
  • At age 75, Black continues to be a top touring comic, performing over 200 shows annually throughout the US, Canada, and Europe[3]. His angry style and political humor remain popular.

The Farewell Tour

After over 35 years of touring, Black announced he will retire from the road after his “Goodbye Yeller Brick Road” tour, which will run throughout 2024-2025 in North America and Europe.

  • He said the decision was driven by a desire to focus on other projects like writing a new play and book, and expanding his “Rantcast” podcast to include live recordings[2][4].
  • However, Black has hinted he may still perform live on occasion, just not on a rigorous touring schedule. He’s mentioned possibly being an unannounced opening act or playing arenas again[4][5].
  • The material will touch on the absurdities of life and insanity of the world that Black has made a career ranting about, filtered through the lens of the pandemic and current events[3][5].
  • It will be the last chance for fans to catch Black’s unique brand of cathartic, no-holds-barred stand-up comedy live after a legendary touring career[1][2][4]. At 75, he remains one of the most distinct and important voices in comedy.
