For his The Joke’s on Us tour, Black is taking a slightly different approach to his social and political commentary.
“It’s things I’ve found while traveling the country,” he says. “Like the difference between a chicken nugget and a buffalo chicken tender.”
It sounds silly, but he elaborates: “I think that demonstrates some of the underlying problems we have as a nation. I’m finding ways to talk about what’s going on without talking about what’s going on.”
8 p.m. Saturday (March 23). $40-$65.50, Taft Theatre, 317 E. Fifth St., Downtown, tafttheatre.org.
