NEW YORK, November 27, 2006 Heartache, heartbreak and mother f#@$in' snakes! "COMEDY CENTRAL's Last Laugh '06 Starring Lewis Black" takes an irreverent look back at the most controversial and outrageous events of this year from the Braveheart exposing his cold, callous, evil thoughts during a drunk driving arrest, "Survivor" revealing that segregation is just experimentation, Britney cutting K-Fed loose to Republicans getting kicked to the curb, 2006 was one spirited year.
