Louis CK is back. He’s got a new show titled “Sincerely”. It’s an hour long, live performance filmed at the Warner Theater, in Washington DC. It’s dedicated to his mother who passed away last year. It’s hilarious! At least I thought so when I watched it. I was pretty juiced and drank throughout. So there is that.
I recommend you watch it that way, also. I howled with laughter while tossing down shots of whiskey. It’s typical Louie – outrageous and offensive. Thus the need (at least for me) for the social dis-inhibitor. The juice to allow you to loosen up. Especially now.
Two kinds of people?
“I feel like there are two kinds of people in this world. One kind needs to laugh when things get shitty. In fact, the shittier things get, the more serious, the more dark the more terrifying, the more dangerous and dire anything is, the more important it is to laugh in The midst of it and often directly in its face.
These people believe it’s no coincidence that human beings have survived despite our fragile hairless bodies, through the most difficult of times And that we are the only species, besides ladybugs, Who laugh at life.
The other kind of people feel that it’s important to put aside laughter in times of difficulty and give serious And painful things the respect and the silence due to them. And to bow their heads to the tragic and to show kindness to people who are afraid and hurting by not making light of their fears or pain.
I don’t think that either one of these kinds of people is right over the other. I can only say that I belong to the first group.
I Love and respect many members of the latter group And I can’t stand many members Of my own.
Anyway, for those who need to laugh, I hope my new show will help.
For those of you that can’t laugh right now I just wish you all the peace you can grab in this shitty shitty time.
PS it’s not free or anything. I’m selling it on my website for 7.99″
Faces and voices
and accents are part of what makes Louis so funny. And timing. He’s a genius.
He spares no one from his mockery. Including himself, of course. His favorite targets and themes are all there: religion, death and dying; eating habits; dogs; families. All manner of people, places, and things. And of course sex. All manner of sex.
One thing he doesn’t touch – politics. Which in itself is a relief.
according to Louie, “I need a drink.” Indeed. And that’s not all God has to say …
Check it out. But, you’ve been warned. No snowflakes (unless you’re juiced.)
One thought on “Louis CK: Seriously”
Originally, I had wrote the title of Louis’ show “Seriously”, which was wrong – it is titled “Sincerely”. That suggests two things – my poor eyesight (I have to close my left eye to read; and two, my subconscious substituting my title for his. A Freudian slip. Seriously.
