Richard Lewis

There can be only one "Franz Kafka of modern day comedy," and according to Mel Brooks, Richard Lewis is it. Lewis has turned his personal therapy sessions into a unique brand of neuroses-laden standup, metaphorically bringing "the couch" with him to the stage. Staggering from hurt to hurt, revealing wound after wound, sharing confession after confession, Lewis, the most audacious wordsmith since Lenny Bruce, has been named one of the "20th Century's Most Influential Humorists" by GQ magazine. After his recent appearances on the HBO series Curb Your Enthusiasm, which won AFI's Best Comedy Award this year, and following the recent release of his new autobiographical book, The OTHER Great Depression, Lewis brings his cathartic act to the Charlie Goodnight's stage in Raleigh May 2-4.
