Lewis Black was a very busy man on New Year's Eve. That night, the Caucasian comedian began previews of his one-man show, Black Humor at Off-Broadway's Cherry Lane Theatre. Opening night for Black Humor is Jan. 10, for a run through Feb. 14.

Lewis' specialty is topical and political comedy, satirizing America as "The Land of the Ridiculous." Recent themes in the show have included Christmas vs. Chanukah (including a rant against dreidels), and an idea for a bizarre new cable network.

A regular on "Conan O'Brien," Black will appear on that show again Dec. 23, on NBC TV at 12:30 AM (EST).

A Yale School of Drama grad, Black is the author of more than 40 plays, including The Laundry Hour, staged at the Public Theatre with Mark Linn-Baker.

Black Humor is produced by the Cherry Lane Theatre Company, formed in 1996 by Susann Brinkley and Angelina Fiordellisi at the Cherry Lane Theatre (usually a commercial Off-Broadway rental house). For tickets ($25-$27.50; $40 on New Year's Eve includes reception) and information on Black Humor call (212) 239-6200.
