Christmas is supposed to be a time of peace on earth and goodwill toward all. But not for Lewis Black.
He says humbug to the Christmas tradtitions and trappings that make the holiday memorable. In "I'm Dreaming of a Black Christmas," hishilarious and sharply observed book about the holiday, Lewis lets loose on all things Yule. It's a very personal look at what's wrong with Christmas, seen through the eyes of "the most engagingly pissed-off comedian ever."*
From his own Christmas rituals which have absolutely nothing to do with presents or the Christmas tree or Rudolph to his own eccentric experiences with the holiday (from aUSO Christmas tour to playing Santa Claus in full regalia), "I'm Dreaming of a Black Christmas" is classic Lewis Black: funny, razor-sharp, insightful, and honest.
You'll never think of Christmas in the same way.
