Just enough time to give you the heads up for this offbeat US comedy starring stand-up comedian Louis C.K. as a hapless single dad in New York.
These episodes are about 3 years old, but think angry Seinfeld, think Flight of the Conchords alternative humour and this might be one for you.
Louie is the new 13-part comedy series featuring Emmy® and Grammy® Award-winning Mexican-American comedian, Louis C.K.
Filtered through Louis C.K.’s observational humour, the show is loosely based around his experiences as a successful stand-up comedian, and a newly single father raising two daughters in New York City.
Celebrity guests during Series 1 include Ricky Gervais (The Office), Matthew Broderick (Margaret, Tower Heist), Tom Noonan (Synecdoche, New York), and Stephen Root (News Radio).
Dark and cynical in tone, and often downright dirty, the series confronts the challenges of Louis’ life as he navigates his way around love, sex, relationships, work and parenting.
Co-produced, written, directed and edited by Louis C.K., the series is shot on a single camera, and consists of unique scripted shorts interspersed with his stand-up comedy.
Winning the 2011 Grammy® Award for Best Comedy Album, Louis C.K. has a wealth of joke-writing experience behind him via The Lateshow with David Letterman and Late Night with Conan O’Brien, along with his Emmy® Award winning work on The Chris Rock Show.
10pm tonight on ABC2.
