Comedian. I knew that too.
I didn’t know much more. I Didn’t want to. Probably the name.
God, I am shallow.
He was on a talkshow recently. I saw a clip from his show then watched a full episode. I am now a fan.
Louie, Louis C.K.’s vaguely autobiographical show on FX is set in Manhattan. A co-worker who’d seen his past work said, “Dark.” Yes. And the show has many, as viewer guidance would say, “adult situations.”
He is a not particularly attractive middle aged man. Balding. He smokes. He is single with two kids. His character is a comedian.
Like Seinfeld, Louis is a comedian when he’s at work and a more complex and less calculatingly funny guy at home.
The episode I saw followed Louie as he was picked up in a comedy club by a much younger, very attractive woman. She was increasingly aroused as he recounted the different criteria by which he could be judged old.
Louie: “I voted for Michael Dukakis.
Louie: “I remember when you could smoke on airplanes.”
Louis C. K. stars in, wrote, directed and edited the show! Renaissance man!
The show was adult, smart and funny. I’ll be back for more.
