Louis C.K.: Hilarious – Review

Posted January 28, 2010 in

Louis C.K.: Hilarious

Sundance Film Festival

Director: Louis C.K.

Hilarious: According to Louis C.K. it's something that is so funny it ruins your life. It makes you laugh so hard that you loose your mind. When you finish laughing you’re homeless. You have shit, leaves and twigs in your hair. Something literally so funny that it fucked up your entire life. It’s a word that is abused and misused by stupid, white, fat Americans constantly. I have to admit, I was apprehensive of Louis C.K.: Hilarious. I’ve always held the belief that stand-up comics are best in person, when they have the ability to play off their audience. Since I knew that Louis C.K.: Hilarious was basically a glorified and elongated Comedy Central Standup Spot, I had my doubts about how hard I would laugh. Luckily, I was wrong. I didn’t stop laughing during this film … not once … neither did the rest of the audience. In short, Louis C.K. is a funny motherfucker—maybe the funniest. Throughout his routine he covers topics of divorce, parenthood, the economy and the stupidity of the things that American’s complain about, and he covers them all in completely refreshing ways.
