Perpetually perturbed comedian Lewis Black returns for this 2008 Comedy Central album. Recorded before a delighted live audience, ANTICIPATION gives Black a chance to vent about the mental vacancy of "Golfers" and ponder the absurdity of certain Christmas delicacies on "Xmas Half-Time." For fans for the ever-enraged funnyman, the concert serves a fine dose of Black humor.
