The Prophet [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - David Jeffries
A highly desirable gift for fans of Lewis Black, The Prophet features an archival 1990 recording of the well-known, fiery comedian back when he was just as fiery but not as well-known. His disgust with hypocrisy and stupidity is obvious from the start, and the political landscape is already a favorite topic, with plenty of George H.W. Bush and Michael Dukakis jokes to be had.

A highly desirable gift for fans of Lewis Black, The Prophet features an archival 1990 recording of the well-known, fiery comedian back when he was just as fiery but not as well-known. His disgust with hypocrisy and stupidity is obvious from the start, and the political landscape is already a favorite topic, with plenty of George H.W. Bush and Michael Dukakis jokes to be had.
