Two nights ago Hawaii enjoyed a visit by the Daily Show's Lewis Black.( We needed some New York culture, believe me.). They sold a great Lewis Black Tiki design T-shirt at the show.
Great show and a great guy too.
As for a Lewis Black Tiki, (He asked me) & I'm going to carve him a real one.
.................. IF I ever figure out how to post a photo of the Tiki T-shirt sold at the concert, with his angry Tiki likeness as the face, I'll do so.

Lewis Black is into tiki?? now I love him even more (which is saying something).

I'm making strange enthusiastic hand gestures about that t-shirt!

Very cool! Black is brilliant (on and off stage). So apparently you actually got to talk to him? I 'd love to hear more about that exchange.

Jeez.... I do believe they sold all of the shirts at the Blaisedell Auditorium that night. We saw the last one leave the table in the lobby.
But he has a website
http://www.lewisblack.net/
and his manager ( Dan the Man) (who replies most messages) would probably let you know if they can order more.

Lewis was relaxed and patient with everyone in the very long line, and signed CDs and shirts, took pictures with anyone who requested a photo too..Of course I welcomed him to Hawaii in the traditional way ("Aloha. Leave us your wallet. Go home") Not really. BUT I did tell him that we really did appreciate him stopping here and that good comedy in Hawaii is as rare as a REAL Bagel. Then I told him that I could make him a carving of the shirt design (but a better likeness hopefyully) He got all excited and then he sent me over to the next table to talk to "Shmucko" (his pet name for his manager Dan).
Jon Bowman his writing partner and opening act was great too.

Hey guys. I'm going to Seal Beach Thursday and I'll bring the shirt with me. I'm visiting Bamboo Ben's Oceanic Art's and Sam's Seafood. If anybody can get a photo of it , we can post it before I get back and learn how to post it myself.
Half the audience was very young 20ish. It's nice to know that he has such wide appeal.
One more warm swim before I freeze in O.C.
Aloha...Leave your wallet... and go home.
