I fucking loved it. I thought it was his best show yet – because it showed him being more comfortable with concepts instead of bits.
What it reminded me of is Bill Cosby’s “Himself”. Makes me think he recently went back and re-watched that special. And thought “yeah.. I like that vibe. I wanna try that vibe for awhile”. Maybe not literally – but he at least had a similar mindset, that his audience was attentive enough to handle it and he was comfortable enough to explore it. It seems to be no accident that he’s mentioned “Himself” a few times in recent interviews.
When you’re a younger comic, you have to think in 10 minute increments (or less). At the level Louis is at, he does 30+ minutes as a drop-in set at the Improv, and performs 60+ minutes at huge theatres several times a month.
If you took any one of those chunks out of this special and threw it into a standard 8-10 minute act, it would fall flat without context of the person performing it and the material that surrounded it. [ … ]
This is basically a follow-up joke to one of my newer bits “the etymology of sucking dick” (here’s a clip of that, from a night at the Jon Lovitz Comedy Club), wherein I take another common phrase we don’t think much about, and wonder if a more apt term is available. [ … ]
Some new shit mixed with some recent shit, and a great fuckin’ crowd. Great fellow comics, too. It was one of those rare nights where the energy stayed high from beginning to end and every comic killed it.
One of my best sets ever, and the audience was amazing. Most of the material is brand-new. Topics include : necrophilia, jerry seinfeld, being single, staying single, hand/blow jobs, and why women are the devil.
Rev. Mitcz calls the KKK a bunch of pussies while reviewing a history of black people accomplishing amazing feats and how it relates to Barack Obama, and leads an audience in proclaiming Sarah Palin as a worthless cunt. After that, it gets a little weird..
Here I am performing about 7 mins of material for the new “Black Bird Cabaret” show at Safari Sam’s in Hollywood. Topics include asshole Prius drivers, Hummer drivers, The origins of milk, ejaculation, and other random shit.
This is actually a clip from my internet TV show, but it’s a comedy performance so it’s included here : My 25-minute, depraved, personalized version of the class joke “The Aristocrats”. Not for children, the weak at heart or the easily-offended.
A 15-minute stand-up comedy performance at Safari Sam’s in Hollywood, CA on Mother’s Day 2007. I was the “warm-up act” opening for Freakshow Deluxe at their “Carnival of Blood” show.
Probably one of my most offensive and vulgar sets yet, this was performed at the PointlessBanter.net launch party. It’s not so easy to get the attention of drunken weirdos at a random party, but that’s part of the fun challenge and probably why the material is so insane.
My first appearance at the Il Corral where, in a strange twist, I performed comedy at a vegan dinner party. While not vegan myself, I managed to woo the crowd with comedy that appeals to the left-wing population and dishes out some dirt on the peculiarities of milk.
