To truly laugh, you must be able to take your pain, and play with it! -Charlie Chaplin.
4 October 2012 | by (Mozambique) – See all my reviews

I am not afraid to say that Louis C.K. is the funniest guy alive, I am also not afraid to say that this show is an instantaneous classic, and the greatest comedy i had ever seen, because is not just funny, there's just something about it...

This 3 episodes (Late Show) are the best ones of the season and just shows how Louis C.K. knows how to play with pain turning it into laugh and doing something that is just what good TV (Which we don't see everyday...) is all about.

In this episodes Louis (that recently won an Emmy) brings all that funny situations that besides being really non-sense actually are things that we can relate to. It shows all the bullshit we have to accept from life and handle everyday> Louie struggling to loose weight and put his life together to try to get the impossible job (that belongs to Mr. Lettermen himself!), all those people telling him what to do or not to do, his low confidence in himself as a result of all that pressure, all this is really tragic but somehow it makes us laugh but also makes us feel his pain and suffer with him, but in the end what remains is a smile, maybe to realize why life is so funny> Cause nothing really matters, except for the laughs.

The best thing this year on TV, Louie brings Chris Rock, David Lynch,Garry Marshall and Jerry Seinfeld to an episode that is already brilliant written. All these amazing actors are conduced by an outstanding direction and brilliant script that make you laugh, cry, sends you from haven to hell in a minute and reminds us that (As Chaplin once said) In the end, everything is a gag. So go ahead, a smile is the better way to express life.
