Series 1 - Episode 2 Poker/Divorce



One of the many joys of Louie is that it takes on topics that most people wouldn’t contemplate, dwell on and certainly not utter out loud in the company of other people. For that reason, it’s hard to reveal some of the subject matter tackled in this second episode. Just expect the unexpected, is all I can say.

Running throughout, though, is that blacker-than-pitch humour, a prime example being this comment from Louie’s brother, who is “helping” the comedian through his divorce: “You’re gonna die alone in a room with a thin blanket over you and the nurse comes in and just shuts the machine off. Picture that.”


The comedian's divorce is finalised, and he decides to move on by tracking down a woman he knew in school. Comedy, starring Louis CK as a fictionalised version of himself.
