The new book from Richard Lewis is ‘Reflections From Hell.’

CHICAGO – The “Prince of Pain” was in Chicago recently. Richard Lewis, the overtly introspective and hilarious stand up comedian, has written a new book – “Reflections From Hell” – and appeared at Chicago’s City Winery, plus sold out two shows at the legendary Zanies comedy club.

The Brooklyn-born Lewis began performing stand-up comedy in late 1970s. After making numerous appearances on David Letterman in the 1980s, he landed on the sitcom “Anything But Love” in 1989, which ran for four seasons. Other TV projects include “Daddy Dearest,” Showtime’s “Rude Awakening,” and a recurring role (as himself) on “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” Films include “Robin Hood: Men in Tights,” “Once Upon a Crime” and “Leaving Las Vegas.” He popularized the phrase “The _____ from hell,” which contributed to the title of his new book, “Reflections from Hell.”
