Louis CK - Louie

slothman  said about 4 years ago  or at  3:40PM on Monday, September 13 2010 in television

Anybody else seen this show? it's kind of like Curb Your Enthusiasm but maybe even a bit more candid. Some really funny stuff. There's a fair whack of the show that's stand-up routines and he really pushes the barriers of.... for want of a better word, decency.

eg. I hate talking to my Mom. When she starts talking I think 'Can there please be another 9/11 and someone calls me about it so I don't have to talk to you'.

but the way he tells it is funny.

I've seen some of his stuff (his video about the Catholic Chruch and their ideology of boy-fucking was quite good, if I remember correctly), so perhaps this show would be worth checking out?

Then, do we need another version of Curb Your Enthusiasm?

Anyone got a ticket to the Melb show they wanna sell?


mud  said about 3 years ago:

This thread not good enough for you?

In fairness, CK's show naming makes it tricky.


slothman  said about 3 years ago:

he was piss funny on Conan recently.

''GO AWAY, JEWS!''


klaximopark  said about 3 years ago:

His latest standup movie, Louis CK: Live at the Beacon Theater can be downloaded here and it only costs $5 to buy the download direct from the dude himself (um...figuratively) rather than paying the man.

I endorse this.

''Chinese Babies''

Gold!


mrmagoo  said about 3 years ago:

will get it, i'm assuming it's a lot of the same stuff from when he was here??


slothman  said about 3 years ago:

looking forward to watching that. piss funny dude.

Yeah parts appear, but they are often executed in a different manner. There's also a lot of stuff that wasn't a part of the set I saw in Melbourne.


NiteShok  said about 3 years ago:

He's sold over 110,000 copies of the $5 web special in 4 days. Amazing. https://buy.louisck.net/statement


klaximopark  said about 3 years ago:

whoa!


cowbell1  said about 3 years ago:

Just finished season 1 of Louis C.K love it ...so funny


tugboat  said about 3 years ago:

Really touching statement/article.
People should start selling music this way.
Cheaper mp3 on Bandcamp.


NiteShok  said about 3 years ago:

The show was awesome. The bit that sticks in my mind is him playing at a pool with his daughters, and some other unloved, poorly-parented child trying to get in on the fun, and him shaking the kid off ''like a rat''.

Great show. I loved the pilot the best.

Question, can anyone tell me which are the episodes in louie series 4 that have a multi episode arch? I want to download some of the episodes with a story that goes for more than one episode.
Thanks

Wonsly  said about 10 months ago:

I really love Louie as a stand up, and i have tried so hard to like his tv shows, plus i really admire how he has led his career and life, but i cant go on like this any longer, i have to finally accept that Louie is a shitty excuse for a tv show.


bigdaddykane  said about 10 months ago:

Agreed Wonsly!


mark  said about 10 months ago:

Wonsky, I just watched half of Brooklyn Nine Nine which is winning a tonne of awards and all I could think of, was, what crap is this. I also struggle through Modern Family that has also won a heap of awards. These shows do not even come close to the brilliance of Louie. The humour of the last scene as he got in the tub or the scene where the waiter translates his letter was funnier than anything theose other two shows could ever produce.It's all comparitive...


mud  said about 10 months ago:

I also completely disagree with Wonsly and bigdaddykane, but I'm just delighted to see some differing opinions on the show. Step out of the echo chamber for a bit.


bigdaddykane  said about 10 months ago:

Look, I think the shows just alright, it's not worth the hype and it's nothing on his stand up. Its all a bit self important and I emphasise 'important', whereas his bits about jacking it just tickle me more.


mrmagoo  said about 2 months ago:

so season 5 has started!! had no idea it was coming up


klaximopark  said about 2 months ago:

i knew it was coming up this year, but didn't realise how soon! solid work


mrmagoo  said about 2 months ago:

I saw a preview line that read 'less art, more fart'


klaximopark  said about 2 months ago:

well that's nice to know, season 4 was a pretty tough slog.


GrantleyBuffalo  said about 2 months ago:

All I remember is naked Louis butt in the bath with Pamela.


bigdaddykane  said about 2 months ago:

His ass was trauma, but the entire season and the Hungarian chick storyline and the pot flashbacks SUCKED.


klaximopark  said about 2 months ago:

I liked the weed dealer flashback because Jeremy Renner.


slothman  said about 2 months ago:

as with most things, needs less banjo!


mrmagoo  said 11 days ago:

season 5 was pretty dull


poprocks96  said 11 days ago:

Anyone read up on the sexual assault accusations? As an aside, I really hated a scene in season 5 where he was being really forceful and now I don't know if I like him anymore.


bigdaddykane  said 11 days ago:

Jeez I thought that halfway thru season 4, that it wasn't worth it.

And now I just cant be arsed to sit thru another quasi-deep season.

It's biggest crimes? It's not funny. And its BORING.


bigdaddykane  said 11 days ago:

Also poprocks, ewww.
