For those of you who don't know Louis CK, Dane Cook allegedly stole his material a while back and that got him a lot of attention. Anyway,his new show "Louie" begins tonight at 11 ET on FX. He has always been my favorite American comedian for years based on his standup, and I really have high hopes for the show. According to a critic who advance-reviewed the show, the pilot episode is mediocre but it gets amazing starting at the second episode.

He had a show called "Lucky Louie" before on HBO but it was canceled after 12 episodes; I really hope this fares better. Due to his brand of humor I figured he would be pretty popular on here, so discuss how much you like (or hate) Louis CK and your hopes for the show.

To get us started, here's a clip of his standup: Shameless
And a promotion for the show: Louis C.K.'s Last Chance

Probably my favourite standup ever. Tis a shame, I'm probably gonna have to wait a while to see this in the UK.

I love Louis CK. I don't get enough channels to watch his show and my internet isn't fast enough for streaming but I'll definitely catch up once I go back to university in August.

Louis CK can have my babies. Then make offensive jokes about them. That man is brilliant.

Haven't seen any of his stuff, started watching that clip you posted and liked it. I've also seen adds for the show so I'm somewhat interested. If he turns out to be funny (haven't finished watching the rest of that video) then I"ll be interested in his show. But I can't watch the show tonight because I don't get FX where I currently am. =/
#23
I guess I'm gunna be the first to break the chain, but I don't find him funny at all. Doesn't seem to be much wit to any of his jokes, just obscure obscenities

All to their own, I suppose. Maybe I'm just missing something.

Along with Bill Hicks and George Carlin, he's one of my favourite stand ups.
I'll have to give this a look-see.
Some people like cupcakes exclusively, while myself, I say there is naught nor ought there be nothing so exalted on the face of God's grey Earth as that prince of foods:

Agreed. The first skit was better.


Edit: what the hell? Where did that helicopter come from?

Agree, but that ending was fantastic. The helicopter and the dead dog bit.

Already seeing this as a show that I am going to be watching religiously.

His humor is right up my alley.

Awkward humor is really hit or miss for most people but I just love it.
I can do it!

And so can you!

I can definitily say I wasn't expecting that helicopter bit. Let's see how the second episode turns out.


Oh lord starting out with dick jokes.

louie ck is my favorite comedian. i didnt really enjoy the pilot but i bet it gets better. maybe the fact that ive heard some of the jokes they displayed on the show in his standup before ruined it for me. like the part where hes waiting to go to the bathroom then the guy goes up and yells. and tbh i think his delivery of his jokes is what makes him funny in his standup, hopefully this show turns out good though.
