"Black is a terrific writer, hilarious and irreverent”
Irvine Welsh ~ best-selling author of Trainspotting
"The Porchlight Storytelling Series has presented over a thousand storytellers in the past 17 years and Black is among the best we've seen. His work is perfectly crafted every time, delighting and astonishing the live audience with his incisive wit, dark humor, and an empath's knack for finding the crux of a story. A consummate pro and stunning talent."
