Birthplace: Silver Spring, Maryland, USA

With arms flailing, fingers jabbing every-which-way, and a gravely voice ranting about hypocritical politicians or ridiculous social mores, comedian Lewis Black made a living spewing disdain and vitriol, both as a stand-up comic and as a weekly commentator on the popular mock news program, "The Daily Show" (Comedy Central, 1996- ). Black turned the role of the angry curmudgeon railing against the injustices of our times into a cottage industry, becoming a favorite among an increasingly skeptical and cynical audience that has ranged in age from teenagers to the elderly. Prior to "The Daily Show," Black toiled in stand-up comedy, performing at clubs and venues across the United States, while trying desperately to become a successful playwright. But it was his grumbling grouse character developed over the years in front of a microphone, that finally launched Black into celebrity, a slow process that brought the comedian eventual triumph at twice the age of other comedians around him. Although Black left "The Daily Show" in early 2016, he continued his stand-up and writing careers, as well as taking on high profile voice gigs such as playing the emotion Anger in Pixar's "Inside Out" (2015).
