Louis Ck's superlative self-titled sitcom has been a long time coming but it's well worth the wait
Louis Ck is exploding a few myths about one of pop culture's most hallowed spaces, the sitcom writers' room. The assumption goes that it's a boozy, thrilling free-for-all, where brilliant ideas pour continuously out of the mouths of equally brilliant people. Apparently not. "A lot of times when you work on a TV show with a team of writers, somebody in the room has a moment of beautiful inspiration," Louis explains. "And they say, 'What if this happens?' And all of the writers fall down laughing, and feel this joy, this exhilaration at the idea. And then another one says, 'Er, yeah, but how do we get there? Does it fit the story?' And then they forget it."
Louis is better placed than most to pass judgment on the rules and rituals of penning comedy. »
