Lewis Black’s new play, ‘One Slight Hitch’

Lewis Black’s new play is being staged after thirty years in development:

Nowadays, at sixty-two, Black is the guy with the loosened tie who rants about current events on “The Daily Show.” But from 1982 to 1989, he was the co-artistic director of a tiny subterranean stage grandly named The West Bank Café Downstairs Theatre Bar. He put on early plays by Aaron Sorkin and Alan Ball, as well as his own surreal one-act comedies, which excoriated the dawning age of the yuppie.
