Lewis Black, one of America's leading funny men, takes the stage along with a variety of other comedians and celebrities to discuss the issues of the day with a fresh, raw perspective in Root of All Evil. As the name suggests, Root of All Evil takes shots at things and figures in pop culture that Black, his guests, or even the studio audience perceive as possibly being the root of everything wrong in the world. From Kanye West to conspiracy theorists (like the President Obama birther movement), to big business, all the way down to viral marketing campaigns and Youtube singers, nothing is off limits to those on the show. A round table discussion had by some of the funniest, and occasionally irreverent people in Hollywood it can sometimes get more than a little risque. That doesn't stop the vitriol from flowing, though, as Black and his guests desperately try to find where all the negative thoughts and ideas in modern day culture really have their roots.
