The Final Word w/ Lewis Black: on gravestones, Netflix and Hollywood

CultureApril 12, 2018

If there's one person who probably should have popped a vein or thrown a heart attack by this point in their career, it's Lewis Black. There is not one thing in this world that he doesn't think is fucked and for that reason, we've dedicated him our personal therapist. Lucky for us, and anyone else who sees the world as a firey inferno of bullshit and deception, Mr. Black is on tour and sharing his musings. Rooster talked with the comedian all the important things – gravestones, Netflix and how to make it in Holllywood – in a little segment we call "The Final Word."
