    'Louie' Gets In Touch With the Lynchian Side of Show Business in 'Late Show Part 2'

    To Louis C.K., the business side of comedy obviously has some Lynchian aspects -- so much so that when he's told to report to an executive in New York who'll train him "Late Show Part 2," the man, Jack Dall, is actually played by David Lynch.

    Recap: 'Louie' Gets An Unlikely Talk-Show Sensei

    With apologies, it's been a little while since we checked in in "Louie" -- we were partly interrupted by festival-related travels and because the show took last week off, presumably because it would have clashed with Barack Obama's speech at the DNC. Or the VMAs. Happily, over the past weeks, Louis ...

    'Louie' Gets Lucky at Last With the Showbiz Offer All Comics Dream Of -- Don't They?

    Where do working stand-ups end up if they don't break big, if they have some success but mainly keep grinding it out on the road, doing gigs around the country until they're too tired? That dark kingdom is just as significant a presence as the crazy possibility of a major late night gig in last nigh...

    'Louie,' Women and the Unsuccessful Adventures of Chloe Sevigny, Girl Detective

    What kind of bookstore is Louie frequenting that's so filled with increasingly out-there responses to the manic pixie dream girl? In "Looking for Liz/Lilly Changes," last night's "Louie," Louis C.K.'s character finds himself dreaming of Liz, the vibrant, unstable woma...

    Recap: 'Louie' Goes 'Looking For Liz' With Chloë Sevigny In A Mixed Bag Of An Episode

    To say that the third season of "Louie" has taken a more serialized approach would be an exaggeration, but both thematically and narratively, Louis C.K's used a little more continuity than usual across the episodes. Indeed, last week's season high -- with a more stand-alone approach -- was almost th...

    Recap: 'Louie' Flees His Daddy Issues In Strangest Episode Of The Season So Far

    If there's been a theme of the third season of "Louie" so far (although it's been less present in the last couple of episodes), it's "manning up." Louie's girlfriend accused of him of not having the courage to break up with her, he was eviscerated by Melissa Leo for refusing to go down on her, he ha...

    When Louis C. K. Confronted Marc Maron on 'Louie'

    The final sequence of "Ikea/Piano Lesson," last night's "Louie," felt if not quite on par with still certainly akin to the great, uncomfortable episode last season in which Louie (and Louis C.K.) sat down to talk to "Dane Cook" (and Dane Cook) about the accusat...

    Recap: 'Louie' Finds Its Funny Bone Again With Help From Robin Williams, Sarah Silverman & Marc Maron

    We've talked about this before, but one of the things that makes "Louie" so unique is that it's a half-hour comedy (from a stand-up comedian, no less) that's quite happy to go an episode without making you laugh. Sometimes the stand-up inserts will add a few gags, but some of the most memorable epis...

    'Louie' Goes on a Manic, Magical Date With Parker Posey

    This season of "Louie" has focused on the title character's sometimes drifting search for love, from that breakup with Gaby Hoffmann in the premiere to getting set up with (and molested by) Melissa Leo to the man crush he develops on the Cuban-American lifeguard he meets in Miami. Last...
