Louis C.K.: Shameless


Is there any current standup comedian funnier than Louis C.K.? I don’t think so. There certainly isn’t one more honest or vulgar. The guy is a true example of taking out anger and frustrations on the crowd. And, somehow, he makes the process enjoyable and entertaining. In this HBO special, he partakes of the observational, storytelling type of comedy that Jerry Seinfeld and Bill Cosby made famous. The big difference is that Louis C.K. curses a lot and talks about people eating duck vaginas. Seriously. He does a whole bit about how he observed a restaurant selling bowls of duck vaginas. This made me laugh uproariously, but if you fail to find the humor in duck vaginas, you might want to steer clear. His bit about his 4-year old daughter is priceless.
