We interviewed the riotous comedian Lewis Black in this week's T Q&A. Black was very vocal about his opinions reguarding politics in the state of Arizona and what our elected officials should do with their time. Tweeting isn't one of them.
They just shouldn't do it. Just move on. Senators and congressman don't have time for this. There's too much work to be done to be telling me your reaction to whatever. They aren't there that much of the year, so use it. You want to Twitter when you're wandering around with your campaign, fine. Oh, you loved the game today? Rooting for the Seahawks? Fuck you!
It's a matter a time. I don't know what the time is, but it won't be long. It's astonishing considering where we were 10 years ago. A lot of it has to do with kids, and kids get it. My generation is unbelievable. It's like, really? Have you learned nothing over the course of time? Anyone living under the age of 25 is living in a different world. We are going from one age to another and a lot of the leaders are ill-equipped to deal with it. We are moving at the speed of fucking light and these idiots are tourists.
It's been four years since Black has performed stand up comedy in the southwest, so we want to make sure you don't miss it. We are giving two pairs of tickets to see Lewis Black on Thursday, Feb.27, at the Tucson Music Hall, 260 S. Church Ave.
