Louis C.K.: Hilarious
With a simple “Hello, everybody,” television writer and stand-up comedian Louis C.K. opens his latest live show, Hilarious. This harmless salutation is the least-controversial thing that comes out of Louis C.K.’s mouth as he turns rants on everyday subjects (impatient people, his weight, fatherhood) into hilarious, expletive-laden diatribes where nothing is sacred—not even (gasp!) his children. Who else can name-check Ray Charles and Adolph Hitler in the same breath and elicit a chorus of raucous laughter? Louis C.K. says what’s on his mind, even at the risk of offending, but his “I don’t give a f**k” attitude makes his irreverent brand of humor especially endearing and relatable. His self-deprecating style elevates his filmed live show to a form of therapy, where we, too, can get comic relief from some pretty warped subjects. At one point, Louis C.K. asks, “Where do you draw the line?” With him, there is no line.
Louis C.K. reminds me of an old man who sits on his porch and gets enjoyment from ranting about society and yelling at teenagers. However, there are two major differences:
1. Louis C.K. is younger
2. Louis C.K. is funnier
3. Louis C.K. understands the generation he is criticizing.
Wait, that's three differences? Well, that analogy went well.....
If any other comedian had titled their special "Hilarious", it would sound egotistical and pretentious.
Coming from Louis C.K., it's the honest truth.
Louis CK takes on a variety of topics in his concert film HILARIOUS. Filmed at Milwaukee's Pabst Theater, Louis CK takes on many topics like American problems that aren't really problems, parenthood, and being newly single. Pretty funny stuff (I think Louis would like my restraint not using the word 'hilarious'). Recommended for Louie fans.
Louis C.K. makes me feel like the biggest whiny and ungrateful piece of shit.
Segunda vez que lo veo, sube media estrellita. Rotunda obra maestra. No hay un segundo ocioso y fluye como nada creado por seres humanos tiene derecho a fluir. Y no soy ninguna autoridad en stand-ups, pero el hecho de que cada momento lograra sorprenderme como si fuera la primera vez que lo veo es una especie de acto de magia por parte de CK. Genio.
"I'll drink the blood, lets party!"
So its hard to rate a standup since its really not a movie, I mean do you rate it on its funniness? well I watched Louis CKs Chewed up and Hilarious back to back and I would have to say that this one was a little better and also probably the best stand up I have ever heard. He is just so honest. awesome.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
The best Louis CK show I've seen yet.
Honestly, it's been awhile since I laughed that hard.
De los mejores. Hacia el final, toda la historia con sus hijas es hilarante. Lagrimones de risa.
This special and his Beacon Theatre special are probably the best standup specials of the 21st century.
Hilarious is definitely Louie's darkest and perhaps funniest recorded set. He consistently pushes the envelope and delivers a barrage of aggressive rants aimed at just about everyone and everything. And at nearly an hour and a half it's amazing that he doesn't lose steam. Things never slow down, they only ramp up. Top-notch set.
