Watch Louis C.K.'s Concert Film HILARIOUS For Free At Epix!

Beaks here...

When Louis C.K.'s HILARIOUS premiered at the Sundance Film Festival last January, he told Quint that this was his attempt to bring back the big-screen concert film ala RICHARD PRYOR: LIVE IN CONCERT, BILL COSBY: HIMSELF or EDDIE MURPHY RAW. The idea was to get the movie some kind of a theatrical release before heading off to DVD, On Demand, and so on. As a fan of stand-up movies (I even paid to see RUNTELDAT), I would've gladly forked over full admission to watch one of the funniest stand-up comics alive work over an audience for eighty minutes. Unfortunately, I couldn't make the sole L.A. screening of the film, so I guess I'll just have to watch it on Epix. For free. If this sounds good to you (and it should unless you hate laughing), head over to Epix, give 'em your email, and fire up HILARIOUS. I haven't had a chance to watch it yet, but seeing as how C.K. has never let me down (not with POOTIE TANG, not with LUCKY LOUIE and certainly not with his brilliant, just-renewed FX series LOUIE), I'm going to highly recommend you check it out. And be sure to check out all of Louis C.K.'s previous stand-up specials. They're all phenomenal.

    Louis CK is the next Carlin. He has that mixture of linguistical skill , lack of tact and the ability to say what most people think that seperates the greats from the very funnies.

    met him a few years ago in Milwaukee

    by DoctorZoidberg

    very nice guy, and the funniest comedian in America (or at least tied with Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock)

    Beaks you aren't a very good writer

    by Rupee88

    if you can't explain what that Epix site is and that you can't just sign up and watch it on your computer there. I am fairlyu computer and internet savvy but can't figure out what the f*ck that site is or how to watch anything on it. Thanks for nothing and for being a tease as I like Louis CK.

    10 bux a month aint free Beaks

  • And yes $10 a month. There may be some workaround but it sure isn't clear.

    oh and when I say

    by DoctorZoidberg

    funniest comedian in America, that means the world by default. Before you Brits get your knickers in a twist, please note I believe Britain is easily the funniest nation when it comes to TV and film. We Yanks have the edge on standup however

    here's Louis' tweet about this: folks. If you go here: http://www.epix you can get an "Invite code" from epix and watch HILARIOUS online for free<br> Eddie Izzard did this with his documentary last year, and it works fine.

    He's brutally honest

    by schadenfreudian

    it's one of the things I love about his show. He's not afraid to tackle personal material that is extremely cringeworthy.

    watched the first twenty or so minutes, but going to wait to watch the rest with my brother later. So far so fucking funny!

    I'll watch this, but Rich Hall is the best...

    ...US stand up comedian imo. It's like listening to a fork-tongued Daffy Duck.

    Is a HD Cable On-Demand channel that you have to subscribe to a-la HBO or Showtime but has no original TV programming. However it has a badass selection of HD On-Demand movies at any given time, and changes something like quarterly. I have always liked the channel since they started offering it like a year ago. It is only topped by the Starz On-Demand package as far as movie channels in my book. Anybody else have this channel? Just curious. I get it through FiOS. I had no problem getting that David Cross thing... do you have a different service than FiOS?

  • Sept. 20, 2010, 9:38 p.m. CST

    I have FiOS as well

    by Kammich

    And I got Epix when they started carrying it... Epix made a pretty strong early push with premieres of movies like Iron Man, Cloverfield, and a couple of other Paramount-owned blockbuster... but their new releases have died down pretty hard. That said, their on demand catalog is LOADED and is probably better than any of the other services. And yes, Louis CK is a god damned genius... and he's a carbon copy of my uncle Chris, from looks, to opinions, to verbal delivery... its scary. my Uncle doesn't have quite the story telling ability, though.

    LOUIE is freakin brilliant.

    by MST3KPIMP

    only comedy show worth watching right now.

  • Sept. 20, 2010, 11:02 p.m. CST


    by Zadrock

    If you subscribe to COX movie pack you automatically get Epix, IFC, Sundance, and like 7 Encore channels. Epix is actually a really good channel with over 150 movies on demand and a weird online feature where you can watch a movie with your friends MST style. Well worth the $4.50 they charge for the package.

  • Sept. 20, 2010, 11:23 p.m. CST

    I loves me my Epix

    by vic twenty

    But they are still spotty when it comes to respecting the aspect ratio. They are good probably 70% of the time when it comes to broadcasting in a proper aspect ratio (when it should be 2.35:1). <p> It still beats the shit out of HBOHD. Man they hate the bars.

    Is one of the funniest people of all time. Yeah I said it. Also I downloaded it since epix kept stopping five minutes in. So now I'll have it to keep. Also Louie is one great show.

    Saw it. Loved it. Louie is the shit.

    Louis CK: Stone cold genius

    by spud_mcspud_returns

    And yes, he says the things we think but dare not say. And makes it fucking funny. Definitely the heir to Carlin's mantle, and a dead cert on my one-to-watch list.<P> But fuck the epix thing. I'm ordering this on Doovde...

    Here's the problem....

    by MelGibsonsRacialTirade

    Eddie Murphy was huge...Bill Cosby was huge...Richard Pyror was huge.....Louis CK is not huge. No one's showing up to see him, no matter how funny he is.

  • Sept. 21, 2010, 7:40 a.m. CST

    Whatever Mel . . .

    by Nice Marmot

    . . . have you gone to see him? He packs the house. And I was about to say how amazed I was there were no haters here. If there's a talk-back about his show in Coaxial, its 50% hate. I f-ing LOVE Louis C.K.

  • Sept. 21, 2010, 9:36 a.m. CST

    "Louie" on FX was outstanding

    One of the 10 best TV shows of 2010. The God episode deserves an Emmy nomination.

    When Louie ended with him and his girls at a diner at 4am...

    by Billyeveryteen

    I knew I found my man.<p>Godamn brilliant show.

  • Sept. 21, 2010, 2:21 p.m. CST

    Season 1 of "Louie" was hit and miss . . .

    by Nice Marmot

    . . . but there were WAY more hits. As mentioned above, the end of the finale in the diner was great and so heartwarming. And the agent coming to the church to demonstrate the brutality of crucifixion was classic.

    Wow, a real let down

    by brobdingnag

    I cannot express how disappointed I was in that. I have laughed my ass off at just about everything else the guy has done but was just self indulgent shit. I laughed maybe once. To be fair I quit after about 50 minutes, but this is coming from someone who has seen almost everything else the guys has done. For this to be mentioned in the same breath as the other standup films in the article is just laughable. Even at no cost this was a ripoff.

    Not as great as Shameless, but still good...

    by GrandMuffTarkin

    Some stuff was a repeat of his older stuff - the magic of flight, cell phone, but other stuff was good, like his old balls/young dick, the word "jew", women seeing the dick last
