Though Lewis Black doesn't smoke, he does consider himself pro-legalization. "I would be thrilled if they could finally figure it out," The Daily Show's longtime ranteur says of medical-marijuana regulation. "Let's just move forward. It's exhausting to watch this nonsense. We're still going to play this game at this point in time? I mean, seriously! They're insane!" Hear more of his hemp-centric musings, as well as those on politics and the tarnished state of religion when he brings his new In God We Rust tour to the Walt Disney Concert Hall. Speaking of that particular venue, Black, Kathleen Madigan and Andy Kindler once conducted a debate on whether Disney or Scientology was more evil. So now that Black is playing the Walt Disney Concert Hall, will he also be taking in exhibits at the Psychiatry: An Industry of Death Museum while he's in town? "I will not be spending time there. I'm sure they have some sort of machine that senses if there's sarcasm in the room, and I don't want to be there for that." Walt Disney Concert Hall, 111 S. Grand Ave., L.A.; Fri., Aug. 13, 8 p.m.; $39.50-$75.50. (323) 850-2000.
