One of the most important things a good comedian can do is turn personal pain into artful laughs. And few comedians do it better than Las Vegas-born Darryl Lenox. His latest project Blind Ambition proves to be an amazingly funny testament to that. The stand-up special, anchored by a series of stories and jokes centered around his severely impaired eyesight, premiered on Starz recently and will air again Nov. 26 at 3 pm ET. Filmed at the Vogue Theatre in Vancouver, it was also taped as a proper album, which was just released today through Stand Up! Records.

As you’ll see in the featurette below, the veteran comedian is not into self-pity, nor is he about to dwell entirely on his visual shortcomings. Lenox’s comedy is as broad as it is wholly original. Check it out.
