Louis CK Doing What He Does
25 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you like the comedic style of Louis CK, you will certainly like him in this special. He talks about what you can do with his dead body, does his impression of Willy Wonka, and warns that one of the people in the audience would die by Christmas (a claim I would love to see verified or refuted).

Strangely, he references Immanuel Kant's categorical imperative and not long after talks about the Indians. Other comics have joked about the Indians, but Louis raises an interesting point: Columbus had to realize very quickly that the Indians were not in India -- so why is it now the West Indies rather than simply just a whole new name?
