Anybody else on here a Louis C.K. fan? If you haven't heard of him I highly recommend you check him out on Youtube or somewhere else. He's my favorite comedian right now. The guy is absolutely hilarious.

I watch his show. Very interesting show.

It might be the funniest show on TV. It is certainly the most realistically funny show I've seen in a long time (unlike something like Curb or Arrested Development). Each episode is a brilliant short film.

I have only seen his stand up stuff but would like to start watching the show. It is on FX, right?

Yes, it is on FX. If anyone isn't watching it, they are missing out.

I'm not sure funny is the right word I'd use. Some things are funny but it's not a sit-com. I do agree that every episode is like a short film.

Funniest guy on the planet. His standup "Hilarious" is among the Most brilliant standup I have ever seen.

Love his stand up. Also thought the one season of Lucky Louie on HBO was great.

Lucky Louie had more jokes top-to-bottom than the current show, but the current show is comedic high art. Not as many laugh-out-loud moments, but the jokes pack a wallop.

He's my generation's version of George Carlin. He's the best comedian out there right now.

I put him at #2 in my generation of comics behind Patton Oswalt. I echo what JFoots said about the show not always being "funny," but it's very compelling. Sometimes, the tension in the show is so real as to be discomforting. There's a lot of rage in this guy,

I was listening to him tonight and I thought the same thing.

Agreed. His standup and show are great. Sometimes my stomach hurts from laughing so hard, and sometimes it just hurts from the tension. Either way, he's one talented guy.

My "favorite" kind of rotates. I definitely think Louie and Patton are up there. Bill Burr is also one of my favorites, his new special is on Netflix and it was great.

So did I. But I wasn't 16. More like 28.

The question is, did you watch the unaired last episode of Lucky Louis?
