Trivia

This show is currently the one exception to the intervention process from network executives. After a bad experience with HBO with his show Lucky Louie (2006), the comedian had no particular interest to return to TV and rejected offers from the networks. By his own admission, he made enough money with the stand-up tours and his duties as a divorced father prevented him from working half the week. John Landgraf, FX's president, met with C.K. and committed to work on his terms. To the actor, that meant absolute creative freedom, no control from the network whatsoever, no notes and only the money for the show. Without putting it in writing, Landgraf agreed to C.K.'s conditions, so the comedian receives $300,000 to make each episode and collects the minimum wage for DGA and WGA. He shoots on the days he is not in charge of his daughters, films on his own and sends the episodes to FX once they are edited, mostly by him. Therefore, the executives are watching them as another viewer and can not give notes. 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!
