Trivia

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 »

Louie, please save comedy for us!
16 December 2010 | by vkostelicSee all my reviews

Louis CK is a genius and he once again proves it by making this miraculously humorous show.

The humor is of the best kind - dry and effective, and Louie faces some real problems that are common for all of us at one point - aging and going through tough (but hilarious) changes in life... Seeing THAT from Louie's point of view is particularly interesting... The show itself is refreshing new gem in the sea of mediocre popular boringness that we see today on TV.

Anyway, I think that this show is underrated and needs more reviews...

Can't wait for the second season!
