PBS: ‘LIFE – Part 2 / LEWIS BLACK’ Segment
2:06

With its series, ‘Life, Part 2’, PBS was attempting to directly address its older audience about being older. The challenge was to keep this sensitive and occasionally dark subject light from time to time. To that end I was assigned to get on a plane with my camera gear, meet Lew at a diner in LA and create a segment out of what he had to say about aging as he at a plateful of fried things.

This series was contracted at a time when VH1 was experimenting with comedy. Toward that end, Co-hosts Caroline Rhea and myself wandered the streets of Manhattan improvising as a man and a woman arguing endlessly about being a man and a woman. These short dialogues set up scripted scenes acted by a very talented troupe of comics that expanded on whatever dysfunctional love topic we had introduced. All pieces were shot on location in New York. Guests included Kevin James, Dave Attell and Adam Ferrara.
