Just saw Louie do a full new hour at the Improv last night in Hollywood and it was the best fucking thing I've ever seen. Trying to figure out where he might drop in tonight. Seeing the same jokes wouldn't even bother me. Just being in the same room would be awesome.
Saw this on Laughspin.com a few days ago, and it made me laugh.
While most people enjoyed their Labor Day weekend with barbecues and trips to the beach, Louis C.K. had the type of holiday most would expect based upon the life stories he tells in his act and on his show. While sailing Sunday on the Harlem River in Inwood Hill Park, New York with his two daughters, C.K.ís boat got stuck in the mud at about 2:30 pm and was unable to move. The boat then remained stranded for a few hours until the tide turned. Locals witnessed C.K. standing on the boat with his daughters waiting for the tide to allow for them to leave.
Good... that boat being stuck might add another six months to the guy being funny. Eventually Louis will have too many perfect days in a row and then it's all over.
Caught 1st show at Largo last night. He has at least two new bits that would be career-defining for any other comic. Amazing.
I just saw him on October 3rd in Cleveland. The show was awesome. Todd Glass opened and did all new material. Louis' set was really good. I saw him last year about a week before he filmed Live At The Beacon, so his set was very polished. This once I could tell he was working stuff out, and it was really neat to see that. Only complaint was the 2 drunk fratbros that sat next to me and talked the whole time. i told them to "shut the fuck up" and they got mad that I wanted to hear Todd and Louis instead of them.
Overheard in the guys bathroom of the Milwaukee show: "This is the second time I've been to a comedy show. The first time I saw some no-name at some big place in LA."
For those who read this thread and don't watch SNL, Louis will be hosting SNL on November 3.
Louie is the best show ever!!!!.......
That's some mighty obnoxious punctuation you got going on there.
I bought my ticket five months ago and the day is finally here! I am giddy with excitement.
* I had a great time last night. The stuff about getting older was excellent. It was a different but equally enjoyable experience than when I saw the Word show at a smaller venue. I may have laughed harder more often at that show. This time around, I had a much better seat and it made a difference. For me, being so close to every facial expression and gesture added something. I'm not sure why it does because I laugh just as much when I listen to his material.
We spent over an hour after the show discussing the show and laughing all over again. I expect this to be the case for the next few days.

I saw Louis last night at the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center. Todd Glass opened for him and did about 10 minutes of his usual silliness (woman who doesn't think she deserves good hair, addicted to watching HSN, finishing up with the Magic Bullet/shamwow routine).
I'm not sure what's going to eventually happen with all of the new material that Louis did, but most of it was pretty solid. A large chunk of it in the middle dealt with Louis getting older, the various weird things that are happening to his body, and also how when you get older you start becoming more attractive to women as they start to lose standards and are now looking for anything ("You can be the branch she clings to on the way down" is the way I think he put it.) There was much less emphasis on his kids in this hour of material, I think he only mentioned them a couple of times. It was more focused on mortality ("I'm 45, so I'm either halfway through a pretty good life, or almost finished with a really shitty one"), divorce (talking about how it was the greatest thing that ever happened to him), and the relationships between men and women (talking about how amazing it is that women even allow men to be near them at all, considering they are responsible for most of the death/suffering/catastrophes in the world).
He finished up with a piece called "Of Course...but Maybe", which was just kind of an excuse for him to express some of his darkest, most inappropriate thoughts (Like "Of course the Make-a-Wish Foundation is a great organization...but maybe we shouldn't spend so much effort on creating good memories for some kid who's going to die in 2 days anyway"). Overall I would say that the material was slightly less polished than the "Word" tour or even the "Live at the Beacon Theater" special. The closing bit was not quite as strong as the "Goodbye, Jews!" bit from the Word tour.
But maybe he isn't completely finished with this material and is still testing it out. As I said, I'm not sure what form this material is ever going to appear in (is he preparing a new special? Or just creating material for the next season of his show? I haven't really heard any announcements about that yet). I look forward to hearing it again though whenever it eventually surfaces in commercially released form.
I'm pretty sure I read somewhere recently that he sold his next stand-up special to HBO. Which is good news and bad news, I guess. Good, because there's going to be a new special, and bad because I was hoping from here on out he'd just always use the website release model he got so jizzed about all those weeks.
