Did You Know?


The theme song, "Brother Louie", was a #1 US hit by Stories in 1973. Stories' lead singer, Ian Lloyd, sings the theme. The word "cry" was changed to "die" in the second repetition of the chorus at C.K.'s request. It was produced by Reggie Watts. Watts recorded a version but C.K. rejected it. It costs $5,000 per episode for the publishing. See more »

Excellently different
9 September 2011 | by See all my reviews

Is truth, I would not call this a sitcom. It is not sketch comedy either, so...what is this? I can not call it anything but genius. Brilliant comedy, in a creative format. I love this. SNV has said he is a great fan of Louis for make me watch him. I also not like to rate a ten, as like previous reviewer say. But I am forced to maintain an integrity? Yes! And, so, I must give highest of rating for this because I feel it is deserving. You will not know what to expect or how to expect it to be delivered on any given episode. Everything comes anew and is very refreshing. It is not stuck in format like most sitcoms and sketch comedies you find. I find those often bore. This, I am no bore, you see? I plan to watch until they cancel! They always cancel the 10/10 ones!
