D&E Entertainment to Theatrically Distribute Comedian Lewis Black's 'Stark Raving Black' To MOVIE Theatres
Worldwide Beginning October 8th
The feature film Stark Raving Black, a Lewis Black comedy movie, directed by NYC filmmaker Adam Dubin and produced by veteran TV & documentary filmmaker, Jack Gulick and producer Benjamin Brewer, will be released in 25 selected markets in the USA commencing on October 8th, and in 14 cities in Canada commencing on October 29th.
The film is distributed by D & E Entertainment (www.DandEentertainment.com) and will premiere for a special run in digital cinemas in cities throughout North America including: New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Boston, Washington D.C., Atlanta, Detroit, St. Louis, Dallas, Fort Worth, Denver, Houston, San Francisco, San Diego, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Baltimore, Indianapolis, Columbus, Buffalo, Fort Lauderdale, Gainesville, Madison, Minneapolis, and Riverside, CA. Cities in Canada include: Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal, Victoria, Ottawa, Calgary, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Saskatoon, North York, London, Oakville, Hamilton, and Etobicoke.
EPIX presents a Stark Raving Black production of the comedy of Lewis Black in an 80 minute feature film of outrageous topical stand up humor from one of the most hilarious entertainers of our generation. This is Lewis Black's first theatrical concert film and it serves up his blistering social and political commentary on current events. The movie's theatrical release is the culmination of his best material from 2009 and two recent shows shot with 10 cameras in Full HD and 5.1 Surround Sound at the historic Fillmore Theatre in Detroit on August 2, 2009.
Black executes a brilliant trifecta as stand-up comedian, actor and author. Since his weekly segment, Back in Black, on the Comedy Central series, The Daily Show, Black has taped four comedy specials for the network, as well as original shows including Lewis Black's The Root of All Evil. He has released critically acclaimed comedy CDs and taped two HBO specials that have earned him Emmy and Grammy nominations as well as a Grammy win for Best Comedy Album. Despite a busy touring schedule as a stand-up comedian, Black has also starred in feature films such as Man of the Year and Accepted among others, authored two best selling books, and penned over 40 plays.
But in the face of these achievements, Black maintains he is "an actor, author, comedian, political commentator, but most of all as a respectable Jewish guy that you can bring home to your mother."
