“Lewis’ performances provide a cathartic release of anger and disillusionment for his audience. Lewis yells so they don’t have to. He’s a passionate performer who is more pissed off optimist than mean-spirited curmudgeon; he’s perfected expressing what the rest of us cannot say in polite company. Lewis is the rare comic who can cause an audience to laugh themselves into incontinence while making compelling points about the absurdity of our world.”

Lewis Black is a New York Times-bestselling author, stand-up comedian, actor, and playwright. Besides appearing regularly on The Daily Show, he has written and starred in a string of successful HBO and Comedy Central specials and one-man Broadway shows. He has won a Grammy, an Emmy, and the American Comedy Award for Funniest Male Stand-up Comedian.

His new book, I’m Dreaming of A Black Christmas, celebrates the holiday season the only way he knows how: by letting loose on all things Yule. Like Dickens’s most famous curmudgeon, Black says Humbug! to carols, holiday dinners, Christmas trees, decked halls, and boughs of holly. The comedian reveals his most harrowing and hilarious holiday moments, bringing into focus the true reason we gather together at this time of year.   Visit his website.

Craig Ferguson is the Scottish-American television host of the late-night talk show, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on CBS. He is also a stand up comedian, writer, producer, director and actor. In addition to hosting that program and performing stand-up comedy, Ferguson has written two books: Between the Bridge and the River, a novel, and American on Purpose, an autobiography.

Before his career as a late-night television host, Ferguson was best known in the United States for his role as the office boss, Nigel Wick, on The Drew Carey Show from 1996 to 2003. After that, he wrote and starred in three films, directing one of them.
