Louis C.K.'s standup movie, 'Hilarious,' debuts Saturday on Epix
Good news, "Louie" fans! If you happen to get the new cable channel Epix, you can watch Louis C.K.'s first standup film "Louis C.K.: Hilarious" Saturday night at 9:30 (or 6:30 if you get the East Coast feed). The film debuted to great reviews at this year's Sundance festival, and it features the star, creator and director of "Louie" delivering some of his typically caustic, hugely funny standup to a Milwaukee audience.
I've had a chance to see the film, and it's not only just as funny as the standup bits from the show but also features completely new material that viewers won't have heard in the show. In particular, wait for C.K.'s take on what happened when his daughter saw a real live pony for the first time and his estimate of the percentage of good marriages that end in divorce (it's low). The film's full of adult content and language, but if that offends you, it must be hard to be a Louis C.K. fan.
If you miss Saturday's airing or don't have a DVR, Epix will re-air the special throughout the month. You can check the channel's schedule here.
