Lewis Black

This comedian was fed up with politicians long before it was fashionable, cracking up Jon Stewart during his rants on “The Daily Show” while causing viewers’ blood pressure to rise. A three-time Grammy winner, Lewis may not be ranting as much on TV as he once did, but he’s still a popular truth teller on the stand-up circuit, waving his finger at anyone who dares to tick him off. By the time he hits the stage this weekend, that list should be a lengthy one. (8 p.m. Fri.-Sat., Pantages Theatre, 710 Hennepin Av. S., Mpls. $59.50-$85. hennepintheatretrust.org)
