First of all, I should say that if you’ve never seen Louis C.K.’s stand-up before, go watch any video on YouTube, and I can pretty much guarantee that if you have a sense of humor, you’re going to laugh. Probably, a lot. That said, his HBO sitcom, “Lucky Louie” was uneven at best and unfunny at worst, and I’ve never seen his FX series, “Louie”, but I probably don’t have to. Regardless, the following video is a promotional clip for the former series–a sort of prequel–and it is funny. Maybe not gut-bustingly funny, but it’s at least chuckle-worthy throughout, and gets progressively better.

Apparently, you can watch some episodes of “Louie” on the FX Networks website. I’ll give them a look later.
