Louie

I spent some time last week looking for this clip from Louis CK's incredible new FX show Louie to no avail. Wasn't on Hulu or Youtube anywhere. But sometime in the past couple of days, Louis CK was able to get it uploaded. And you should watch it.

Because it's fucking brilliant.

It's a bunch of comedians sitting around playing poker and the conversation turns to gay sex and gay men, as one of the crew is, in fact, a gay comedian. Because the rest of the guys are always asking him about it.  Some fun is poked their way for that, by the way.  Obsess much?

It's funny, it's honest and it's ultimately poignant.

Absolutely brilliant. And NSFW for the language, if you care about that.


PS - Although these guys are mostly playing themselves, it is a semi-scripted show and I really don't think Nick DiPaolo is that much of a homophobe.  Then again, maybe he is.

Is it wrong that I'm more interested in who won the poker game?

limpy99 said...

Actually, I just watched the whole clip. Fucking brilliant.

That really is outstanding. And I thought American comedy may have died with Bill Hicks. I couldn't have been more wrong.

Limpy - the dogs in the velvet painting won the poker game.

badger - The latest episode of the show featured Ricky Gervais as a practical joke playing doctor. Hilarious.

Slyde - Really? I thought all three episodes so far have been outstanding!

Watched the WHOLE clip.

I saw Louis on the Tonight Show a few weeks ago, and he was Fucking HILARIOUS. I had no idea !

B.E. Earl said...

Slyde - No. They are now on a one episode a week schedule after the first week. Episode 4 is next Tuesday at 11PM.

Zibbs - You should check out that show. I think you'll like it.

B.E. Earl said...

Heff - Louis CK is a brilliant guy. One of the best comedians ever.

I loved that episode 2 primer. It was amazing. Some of the show is uneven, but I'm really digging it.

B.E. Earl said...

Adam - I can see after 3 episodes, that he plans on adding a bit of real-life into each episode's comedy. The post-fight scene with Nick DiPaolo was really good last week.
