Louis C.K.: Hilarious

C.K. riffs on American idiocy in a way that's exhaustingly funny if you're into it at all.

Standup comedy cinema has a new star in “Louis C.K.: Hilarious.” Filmed last year at the Pabst Theater in Milwaukee, the bare-bones pic has regular-guy comic Louis C.K. riffing on American idiocy in a way that’s exhaustingly funny if you’re into it at all. Much of the 41-year-old’s lewd, perversely humanitarian routine simply can’t be described here; suffice it to say that C.K. tackles everything from the joys of divorce to the pack mentality of horny men, the good luck of gay people, the problematic pleasures of “Girls Gone Wild” and the damage of videogames to kids. Cable play awaits.

No less a rib-tickler than Chris Rock has called C.K. the “greatest comic mind” of recent times. Be that as it may, C.K. draws reams of jokes from simple scenarios such as making French toast for his fussy toddler. Wearing a goatee, black T-shirt and blue jeans, the comic gets funnier as he gets sweatier. Ultimately, his sketches are best at satirizing the spoiled privilege of Americans — the “fattest people on earth.” While fans are often heard howling, C.K. laughs heartily whenever the audience doesn’t, evincing his glee in button-pushing.
