|Who better to serve as the ultimate decider on all things evil than Lewis Black? "Lewis Black's Root of All Evil" pits either two people such as Kim Jong Il and Tila Tequila or pop culture topics such as You Tube vs. Porn against each other in an open debate setting. A rotating group of comedians take the stage and argue who or what is most evil with Black making the final decision.
The series is created and executive produced by Scott Carter ("Politically Incorrect," "Real Time with Bill Maher") and David Sacks ("The Simpsons," "Malcolm in the Middle") and features the following: a fiery monologue by Black introducing the topics; "Opening Statements" - the first opportunity comedians have to state their case; "Debate" – the comedians provide verbal and video evidence to bolster their case and try to debunk each other's theories; "Inquisition" - Black grills the comedians; "Ripple of Evil" - comedians predict the dire consequences that will ensue if their evil is left unchecked; "Closing Statements" – comedians hit their message home; "Final Verdict" – Black renders his decision.
Comedians serving as advocates on the show include Andrew Daly ("MADtv"), Greg Giraldo ("COMEDY CENTRAL Roasts"), Andy Kindler ("Late Show with David Letterman"), Kathleen Madigan (judge on last season's "Last Comic Standing"), Patton Oswalt ("Ratatouille," "King of Queens") and Paul F. Tompkins ("Mr. Show with Bob and David").
