When Lewis Black was preparing his HBO special "Red, White & Screwed", the original plan was to tape it at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.
But then the Kennedy Center Poobahs saw his previous HBO special (which I believe was "Black On Broadway")......
So much for that opportunity!
Apparently, "Uncle Lew" uttered the word "fuck" 42 times during the special. And these guys actually counted them!
If only he had said "fuck" one more time, then the Numbers of 'Lost' would not have affected him so adversely!
