From disgusting comedy clubs to the prestigious White House Correspondents’ dinner, Lewis Black has stood on a lot of stages over the course of his career. The Amphitheater podium from which he spoke Monday morning was different, though. “I don’t know if you realize that what goes on here, now, is completely counter to what’s occurring in the country,” Black said. “So you have to realize,” he continued, “that this, what you’re doing, is wrong.” Opening Week Six: “Comedy and the Human Condition,” Black — the comedian, social critic and noted “king of rant” — dove straight into discussing the dichotomy between Chautauqua’s scholasticism and the rest of America’s insistent lack thereof.
