#1 - Oh My God
Season 1 - Episode 6 - Aired Apr 13, 2013
Filmed at the Celebrity Theatre in Phoenix, AZ on February 15th and 16th, 2013, Oh My God is Louis C.K.'s fifth stand-up special, his first for HBO since 2007's Shameless, and his first since winning a Emmy Award for writing on his acclaimed show on FX, Louie. Performed in the round in front of a live audience, he discusses such topics as the food chain, animals, divorce, strange anecdotes, broken morality, murder and mortality.
#2 - Live At The Beacon Theater
Season 1 - Episode 5 - Aired Nov 10, 2011
Recorded November 10th, 2011 as part of the New York Comedy Festival, and only available for purchase online, Louis C.K. follows up his 2010 concert film Hilarious with a new hour’s worth of shrewdly observed and periodically profane material. He starts with making his own kind of please-turn-off-your-cell-phone announcement, as well as a warning not to text or tweet during the show: “Just live your life,” he asks. Whether he’s talking about a unique way to drop a rental car off at an airport or describing why a man in his 40s should not smoke dope, it’s terrific, humane, carried-to-crazed-extremes stuff.
#3 - Hilarious
Season 1 - Episode 4 - Aired Jan 11, 2011
With a simple “Hello, everybody,” television writer and stand-up comedian Louis C.K. opens his latest live show, Hilarious. This harmless salutation is the least-controversial thing that comes out of Louis C.K.’s mouth as he turns rants on everyday subjects (impatient people, his weight, fatherhood) into hilarious, expletive-laden diatribes where nothing is sacred—not even (gasp!) his children. Who else can name-check Ray Charles and Adolph Hitler in the same breath and elicit a chorus of raucous laughter? Louis C.K. says what’s on his mind, even at the risk of offending, but his “I don’t give a f**k” attitude makes his irreverent brand of humor especially endearing and relatable. His self-deprecating style elevates his filmed live show to a form of therapy, where we, too, can get comic relief from some pretty warped subjects. At one point, Louis C.K. asks, “Where do you draw the line?” With him, there is no line.
#4 - Chewed Up
Season 1 - Episode 3 - Aired Mar 1, 2008
Profane, vulgar and obscenely funny, Louis C.K. insists on telling the truth, whether you like it or not! Join the Emmy Award-winning stand-up comic and TV star (Lucky Louie) as he shares his thoughts on the stuff everyone thinks about -- male bodily fluids, the joys of being white, the difference between women and girls -- but never has the nerve to say. It's Louis C.K. at his risk-taking best: fearless, honest and totally outrageous! Nominated for the 2009 Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Variety, Music or Comedy Special.
#5 - One Night Stand
Season 1 - Episode 1 - Aired Aug 19, 2005
Boldly original comedian Louis C.K. brings the audience to hysterics in this live HBO stand-up performance. In a blistering routine, the award-winning comic exposes life's most absurd realities with his signature blend of raw wit and twisted wisdom. Named one of the "Ten Comics to Watch" by Variety, C.K. won an Emmy for his comedy writing and has appeared regularly on Comedy Central, HBO and many late-night talk shows.
#6 - Live At The Comedy Store
Season 1 - Episode 7 - Aired Jan 27, 2015
This material was developed and prepared over the last year or so, mostly in comedy clubs. This special kind of goes back to when he used to just make noises and be funny for no particular reason. It felt right to him to shoot this special in a club to give it that live immediate intimate feeling. The show is about an hour long. The opening act, who is seen at the beginning (good place for an opening act) is Jay London. One of his favorite club comics going way back to the late 80s when he first started in working in New York.
#7 - Shameless
Season 1 - Episode 2 - Aired Jan 13, 2007
Louis C.K. is back on HBO in an ALL-NEW hour of raw no-holds-barred stand-up comedy!
