Louis C.K. gets it. He has been one of my favorite comedians for a very long time and is also a gifted comedy writer. In his latest television effort, "Louie," he really shines as an actor and provides television with a sitcom that will most likely be remembered as truly innovating.
The pilot begins with Louis performing in a comedy club and talking about his two daughters, their understaffed school and volunteering there.
The first vignette begins with Louis and another parent ushering kids onto a school bus for a field trip. Louis is faced with a busload of screaming kids and a driver that has no idea where he's going and doesn't care. The bus ultimately breaks down in Harlem and the group is deserted by the driver.
The driver has a great Stanley from "The Office" quality to him and is a great counterpart to Louis' discomfort in this situation.
The chunk is about Louis' single life at age 42, and how dating and marriage never really work out perfectly.
