Quotes

Louis C.K.: Whenever single people complain about anything, I really want them to shut the fuck up. Because, first of all, if you're single, your life has no consequence on the earth. Even if you're helping people aggressively, which you're fuckin' not, nobody gives a shit what happens to you. You can die and it actually doesn't matter. It doesn't. Your mother would cry or whatever but otherwise nobody gives a shit. I can't die. I got two kids and my wife doesn't fuckin' work so I don't get to die; I can't...

Funniest stand-up special since Chris Rock: Never Scared
1 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

It's hard to think of a more underrated entertainer than Louis CK. The multi-talented writer/director/comic/actor, best known for his work with Chris Rock, has been a driving force for the state of comedy for over a decade. In a perfect world, or even a decent one, Louis CK would be as big as Chris Rock. Unfortunately, a little unfunny frat-boy by the name of Dane Cook stole some of his best material, and legion of drunken college students who worship Cook helped make him the celebrity he is today. If I were Louis CK, I'd be taking legal action, but Louis is smart enough to let it go, and continue coming up with new, funnier material. That better material is prominently featured in 'Shameless', one of the few stand-up specials that have truly left me crying from how much I laughed. Like George Carlin, Louis CK has the ability to show that anything, no matter how mean-spirited or dark, has the capacity to be funny, if not hilarious. He also has the type of brutal honesty that the popular comedians of today lack. He's not afraid to talk about any aspect of his personal life. His humor is frank, original, and daring. 'Shameless' is a must-see for anyone with an interest in comedy. 10/10
