Lewis Black: Not Drunk on Himself


About a month ago, we put Lewis Black on the “despicable” side of our Approval Matrix chart for releasing his own wine, which we thought was an uncharacteristically narcissistic move by the comedian. Well, it turns out that the item-provoking City Winery charity event that featured Black’s wine was in fact the only time the wine was distributed: It existed solely for charitable reasons, not egotistical indulgence. Mr. Black, please accept our apologies; readers, please check out the website of the 52nd Street Project, the Hell’s Kitchen nonprofit which benefited from Black’s event.
