Additional Information

RICHARD LEWIS

Perhaps Mel Brooks put it best when he said, "Richard Lewis may just be the Franz Kafka of modern day comedy."
Lewis has taken his lifelong therapy fodder and carved it into a commanding, compelling art form. His early career as a stand-up brought him to the top of his ranks and over time he broadened the scope of opportunities so others could share in his brilliantly warped world. A N.Y. Post article noted; "Richard Lewis built the strongest stand-up comedy career on a blazing trail of neuroses since Woody Allen."
Lewis is '~jazzed' about going into an eighth season of "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and yet another Emmy nom for the series which has also been picked up into syndication via the TV Guide Network. Lewis has been cast in VAMPS and will play 'Danny,' a former student activist who now works as a lawyer with the A.C.L.U. The film will be directed by Amy Heckerling (CLUELESS) with Ben Stiller and Stuart Cornfeld producing. Meanwhile, he continues his "Misery Loves Company Stand-Up Tour" and is also now developing his own dark ensemble comedy.

He wrote a memoir, "The Other Great Depression," whose first printing was in 2000 through the prestigious Perseus/ Public Affairs Books and reissued later with a new, passionate afterword. In the memoir he is as brave, insightful and forthcoming as he is in his comedy. He disrobes his substance abuse and recovery, skewing it his unique way. The book is a collection of fearless, essay style riffs featuring Lewis' dark stream-of-consciousness personal observations. Also, the reissue of "The Other Great Depression" is now available on audio, read unabridged by the author from Phoenix Audio. "Richard Lewis Naked," a companion documentary, is also available from that book-promotional tour..
