Airing tonight on FX, the first of 13 new episodes of the critically acclaimed original comedy series LOUIE should prove a welcome return to the Thursday night comedy line-up. A mixture of scripted story and stand-up comedy, the show is the brainchild of Emmy Award-winning comedian LOUIS C.K. who writes, directs, stars and even edits the show himself.
Arguably one of television’s few “auteurs”, LOUIS C.K. has pretty much reinvented the sitcom with his idiosyncratic mix of observational comedy and family drama. Addressing reporters at a Television Critics Association press conference, the comic talked about his skill-set and why not just anyone could put together a show like this.
