In Category: ‘The Root of All Evil’

I just looked at the buttons above and realized that they feature TWO cancelled shows. Mind Of Mencia and Chocolate News were cancelled, as well as Root Of All Evil. These were three Comedy Central shows I art directed and now is the first time since 2005 that I am 100 percent Comedy Central free!  Once I get the logos for the TWO shows I am doing right now I will ask Tea to switch them out.

“Lewis Black's Root of All Evil" (Wed at 10:30pm) is a hit!   It’s Comedy Central's top-rated debut since the launch of "Chappelle's Show" in 2003! Like "South Park," it was the No. 1 show in all of television for its timeslot among men 18-34 (2.4/8). For the night, Comedy Central stood as the No. 1 cabler in men 18-24 and 18-34. The influx of young men helped lift "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" to its most-watched telecast (2.25 million) since October.  This was a great show to be a part of. I had a small but fierce art crew and it was great to be with Chris, Eric, Alison, Sketch, Devon, Mary-Eileen, Karen and so many more of the amazing Mind of Mencia crew for a couple months.This past week Comedy Central threw a premiere party at Lucky Strike in Hollywood (I missed it) and I have a new DVR

I just finished Art Directing eight episodes of a really funny new show for Comedy Central. It's called The Root of All Evil and it's hosted by the very irate Lewis Black.  The premise of the show is great. Root takes place in a courtroom, with Lewis as the judge, and the attorneys are comics (Patton Oswalt, Andy Kindler, Greg Giraldo and more) who debate over pop culture figures with Lewis ultimately deciding who is The Root of All Evil. A recent case? Paris Hilton vs. Dick Cheney...which one is the Root of All Evil? A lot of my favorite people work on the show, Alison Freer is doing costumes, Eric McGilloway is the master of motion graphics and of course Chris Robinson rules the nest. Tonight is the wrap party at creator Scott Carter's house. Scott is the Executive Producer of Real Time on HBO so maybe Bill Maher will be
