Sundance Review: LOUIS C.K.: HILARIOUS
If you haven’t heard of world renowned comedian Louis CK then you must have been living under a rock. This guy is the epitome of a stand up comedian. When I heard that he had a film here at Sundance, I honestly thought it was just going to be a documentary with some of his stand up routines thrown in. What we actually get is a full blown comedy show experience.
The first starts off with him arriving at the club, then going directly to the stage to being his onslaught of racy comedy. There isn’t a whole lot for me to talk about for this review, as its straight forward just a full stand up routine. Nothing new, nothing plot wise… just Louis CK delivering some of the best stand up comedy I have heard in years. There were points in the film that we were in tears during the routine.
Louis C.K. delivers some very vulgar, and somewhat offensive material but he tells it all with a smirk/smile that you cant help but laugh at. It offended a few people in our screening who walked out after a couple of racial jokes.
After seeing this comedy concert film I am dying to see Louis C.K. live so he can offend me, and make me cry in person.
