Cranky laughs with Lewis Black at DPAC

The depths of January are a time when everyone’s crankiness is turned up to 11, which makes it the perfect season to enjoy the comedic stylings of Lewis Black. The UNC-Chapel Hill alumnus is hardly the last angry man – he’s got way too much company for that, especially when it comes to politics – but he is certainly more sensible (not to mention funnier) than most. And he’s coming to Durham Performing Arts Center on Friday with a show billed as “The Emperor’s New Clothes: The Naked Truth Tour.” Showtime is 8 p.m. and tickets are $40-$75 (plus fees and taxes). See dpacnc.com for details.
