Boobtube favourite standup comic Louis C.K. must be overjoyed.
Yup. He looks pretty happy!
He should be, because his FX show Louie has been renewed for a second season. Yaaaaay!
I think the mix of his standup routine interspersed with scenes from his home life and post-stage banter with fellow comics and audience members at the Comedy Cellar and Caroline’s in NYC is really refreshing and interesting. It’s unapologetic and bold and different and I like it.
I love Louie’s take on his own shortcomings. Last week’s episode featured special guest star Matthew Broderick being shocked at how bad an actor Louie is, even though Louie had said he didn’t like acting. That actually explains a lot about Lucky Louie, the HBO show he did last. It was, in a word, terrible.
This one more than makes up for it.
Good job, Louie!
