Happy Birthday Richard Lewis, here’s Richard Lewis!

Richard Lewis, stand up, 1981

Richard Lewis – that’s right, Richard Lewis – turns 62 today, and what a life so far.  He claims to have invented the phrase “the … from Hell”, which is more or less a lie, we expect. He has also starred alongside Larry David in the excellent Curb Your Enthusiasm, where he puts in one heck of a show as the best friend from Hell. Hence we decided to buy him a gift, so we went to the worst pub we could find – the pub from Hell – and started conversing with the locals from Hell before it boiled down to a toss up between some apples from Hell, or a clip of his old stand up routine. Not from Hell. In the end we got him both. Happy Birthday Richard Lewis!
