Reno, Nev. – Renowned comedian and performer, Lewis Black, will bring his unique comedic style to the stage of Grand Sierra Resort and Casino’s (GSR) Grand Theatre on Saturday, Jan. 27 with ‘The Rant, White & Blue Tour.’ His one-of-a-kind routine is characterized by his trademark angry rhetoric and animated yet disillusioned personality. With an impressive five Grammy nominations and two wins, Black has become known as the “king of the rant,” using politics and current events to amuse his audience. Black is one of the few performers to sell out several renowned theaters, including Carnegie Hall and the main Stage at the Mirage in Las Vegas and this newest tour is sure to follow suit. Tickets are on sale now and start at $34.50. For more information, visit or call 1-800-648-3568.

The Grand Theatre, which underwent $10 million in renovations in 2015, has marked itself as one of the top entertainment venues in the West with a capacity of more than 2,700, including well-appointed luxury seats with more legroom, wider seats and wider aisles. In addition, exclusive VIP booths with personalized beverage and bottle service are available for small groups and special occasions. Designed by John Sergio Fisher & Associates, the theatre also includes a two-tiered entry with an all-new, enclosed lobby, state-of-the-art lighting and sound renovations, as well as new artist facilities including dressing rooms, green rooms and an artist lounge.
