Michael Ian Black
1507 SE César E. Chávez Blvd.
A former member of generation-defining '90s sketch comedy troupe The State, Black has since become a strangely ubiquitous figure in pop-culture, popping up as a talking head on VH1, hosting podcasts, hawking sodas and ice cream bars in TV ads, fighting with Marc Maron on Twitter, even writing children’s books. Through it all, he maintains an air of self-deprecating smarminess that’s at once infuriating and hilarious. Opening for Black is hometown hero Shane Torres.
