Louis C.K. appeared on Conan last night and made people laugh really hard. Because he’s funny—like, really funny.
Louis C.K. is on a fucking roll right now. Nearly everything that comes out of his mouth is coated in comic genius. After years of struggling, the man who Chris Rock considers the greatest stand-up comedian working today has finally stepped into the spotlight. If you still aren’t watching his show “Louie” on FX you’re doing yourself a disservice. Not only does 95 percent of summer television suck, but also “Louie” is exceptional for any climate.
So far the second season of “Louie” has been a perfectly flawed work of art. The show’s cynical and sometimes dark sense of humor has been so perfectly nuanced that it’s become the must-watch comedy of the summer. And that is saying something considering Larry David’s brilliant “Curb Your Enthusiasm” might be in the midst of its greatest season of the show’s legendary run.
Last night Louis C.K. appeared on Conan and proved every word that comes out of his mouth right now is hilarious. The 13-minute interview could be confused with a mini stand-up performance as he explains how he saved his dumb dog’s life, called people out for masturbating with Conan muted in the background, and joked about casting tapes from “Schindler’s List.”
Enjoy, and start watching “Louie” on FX Thursdays at 10:30pm.
