I thought forty quid wasn't too bad although the booking fee was a rip off as ever.|
I liked Doug Stanhope on Charlie Brooker and Louie but if I could go back burning the money would have been more entertaining and less painful than when I saw him live.

The masturbation episode in Season Two is painfully brilliant.
I do still love Doug Stanhope for his sheer pissing over the edge of the abyss darkness and bile, but Louie is such a great, normal fuck-up, it's a different kind of thing.
Louie is probably my favourite comedian. There's a brilliant honesty to his humour.
This brings tears to my eyes.
For those going to the Apollo on Thursday and looking for a drink before or after the show, there are two pubs nearby.
The Distillers looks good but the other one which is a little bit nearer, Duke of Cornwall, has crap reviews so is probably best to avoid.

Anyone else caught the new HBO special Oh My God? Had the wife and I in tears, so so funny.
Looking forward to it. It's another $5 download isn't it?
Finished S3. Brilliantly funny. Ramping up the guest stars. Left wondering how much of the Letterman stuff was real. Also the Afghan episode.
Final one was a strange one, but I liked its boldness.

His live show was fantastic last month. Will get that special.

I hope he comes to South Africa one day. Jimmy Carr was here not too long ago, and John Cleese is here next month. Not that it's odd for stand-up acts to come here, I just don't get the impression that he ever will...

I'm really disappointed by Louis' new HBO special.
The material in Oh My God is thin and almost completely devoid of insight. Has his (at times brilliant) TV series sapped him of stand-up creativity?
Toilet humour (lol I'm so old my sphincter is loose) and trite observations made me stop watching after about 30 min, which has never happened before with Louis, ever.
Oh well. Even formidable comedians are bound to hit a bum note here and there I guess.
Well hello. This is Louis CK writing to you again to let you know about new stuff coming on my website.https://buy.louisck.net
Mostly I would like to tell you that starting tomorrow (Wednesday the 29th) at noon, (New York time) my first movie "Tomorrow Night" will be available for download and streaming for the usual five dollars. As always you can buy it from anywhere in the world with no digital restrictions.
I made this movie, meaning I wrote and directed it, back in 1998. I was a struggling comedian and TV writer at the time and I pulled together my savings and some of my fiends money to make this movie on black and white 16mm film.
There are some great people in this movie. Steve Carell, JB Smoove, Wanda Sykes and Conan O'Brien are some that you might have heard of. Robert Smigel, Chuck Sklar, Rick Shapiro, Heather Morgan, Nick Diapolo, Martha Greenhouse, Greg Hahn, Carey Prusa and Joseph Dolphin, you may have heard of a little less but they are all terrific. In fact all these people are comedians and actors I had been working with and around back in the 90s and I wrote all of their parts for them specifically.
To me, that's what this movie was for, to create performance opportunities for all my favorite funny people. And to photograph them with prime lenses on Black and White reversal film.Tomorrow Night is a bizarre little indie film and it gets pretty weird. It was a labor of love for me. It's how I learned to direct and there are some wonderful performances in it.
The crew included some folks that still work with me today on my FX series "Louie" including director of Photography Paul Keostner and production designer Amy Silver.Tomorrow Night screened at the Sundance film festival as well as other festivals from Seattle to Sweden. But it never got distribution. Any black and white movie is tricky to get a market for and this one is particularly strange. But it's funny and it's well worth watching. That's what I think, anyway. It certainly isn't for everyone.
In any case, Tomorrow Night has been sitting in storage in film cans for 15 years. No one has ever seen it. There are no tapes of it or even clips of it anywhere.This year, I decided to get it out by putting it on my website. I had an excellent digital transfer made from the negative. The sound is the original Mono mix which is fitting for the style of the film. Be prepared to sit through people dialing rotary phones, which takes a while. The pace is sometimes slow and deliberate. Sometimes crazy. But it's exactly the movie I wanted to make and I'm proud of it. I'm putting it on my website with the hopes that I can continue this way of distributing stuff. I'd also like to pay back some of the people who helped me finance the film. I'd also like people to finally see it so that the performances can be awarded with applause and laughter. I'd also like to make a profit from it so I can use the proceeds to make a new movie and release that on my website as well. Wouldn't that be something?
Ok, so buy it tomorrow. and tell your friends to do it also. Or don't. It's really only partially up to me what you do with your time and money.

Ace! I know what I'll be watching with a beer when I get home
Edit: Watched first ep, great as always. I could watch Louie all day every day, he should be locked in a studio and forced to produce 52 eps a year, what could possibli go wrong.

The latest episode was one of my favourites. Loved the violin scene. Expected Louie to get as weepy as I did. Definitely the happiest I've seen him, which is nice.
The series continues and is excellent, brilliant TV.
I'm quite pleased they're coming in two episodes a week.
I was quite annoyed by the doctor the first times he made an appearance. He was lovely in his last scene though, when he was walking his dog. You're an idiot!
Did anyone find the rescue the ex-wife and daughters scene a bit odd?
It took up a fair chunk of the show and it just didn't seem to serve any purpose.
They'd been building up to the hurricane a bit in the previous week, so I guess they felt they needed to do something with it. Didn't make much sense to me though. He goes over there, he picks them up and ... that's it really. They're not even at his place afterwards.
I'm happy to gloss over that one little hiccup though, that scene in the restaurant with the waiter solemnly declaring his (her) love for Louie was absolutely great!
