A giant in the world of stand-up, Black may be most recognized for his longstanding segment on Jon Stewart's "The Daily Show." With award-winning albums and critically-acclaimed specials on Comedy Central and HBO, this fiery comic has built a reputation as one of the best in the business.

Tickets are $35, $45, $55 and $65 and can be purchased online at www.theclaycenter.org, in person at the Clay Center box office or by phone at 304-561-3570. For more information on Lewis Black, visit www.lewisblack.com.
