Louis C.K.s career has been a mixed bag. As a general rule, if hes only writing it, its good: take his three original hours of stand up material (Shameless, Chewed-up, and Hilarious), writing for SNL, Late Night with Conan OBrien, The Late Show with David Letterman and The Chris Rock Show. Critics will call out one glaring exception: The 2001 film Pootie Tang about a folk hero with a magic belt fighting against corporate America while speaking complete gibberish. Its a mystery how this hasnt become a cult hit, especially with the heavy smoking crowd, but thats how Louis C.K.s career outside stand-up has played out thus far. One things for certain, though: once Louis his the stage at a comedy club, nothing but comedic brilliance pours out.
