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

very nice guy, and the funniest comedian in America (or at least tied with Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock)
Sept. 20, 2010, 5:01 p.m. CST
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.

And yes $10 a month. There may be some workaround but it sure isn't clear.
Sept. 20, 2010, 5:04 p.m. CST
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 hd.com/invite/ 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.

its a lot of fine print crap
Sept. 20, 2010, 5:24 p.m. CST
haven't got it yet
Sept. 20, 2010, 5:29 p.m. CST
it's one of the things I love about his show. He's not afraid to tackle personal material that is extremely cringeworthy.
Sept. 20, 2010, 5:33 p.m. CST
I want a sequel to this! I saw this movie with my gf in Montreal (cuz black movies aka limited release -still had a hard time playing up here even then) and I HOWLED MY ASS OFF in a theatre of 7 people tops...love Pootie. It's Genuis.

It's as good as Pryor or Murphy, seriously.
Sept. 20, 2010, 5:37 p.m. CST
Saw this funny motherfucker this past Friday in San Francisco. Never laughed at a white dude so hard.
Sept. 20, 2010, 5:42 p.m. CST
Good manners are SO 20th century. <br> Seriously, though, let us know what you think. I haven't gotten to see it yet.

"Suck a bag of dicks" Classic.
Sept. 20, 2010, 5:51 p.m. CST
Thanks for nothing.
Sept. 20, 2010, 6:07 p.m. CST
watched the first twenty or so minutes, but going to wait to watch the rest with my brother later. So far so fucking funny!
Sept. 20, 2010, 6:10 p.m. CST
...US stand up comedian imo. It's like listening to a fork-tongued Daffy Duck.
Sept. 20, 2010, 6:14 p.m. CST
As is Marc Maron.

Since Bob Schimmel passed away. And even before that, it was pretty close. Fucking love this guy.

Can't wait for season two.

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?

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.
Sept. 20, 2010, 10:29 p.m. CST
only comedy show worth watching right now.
Sept. 20, 2010, 11:02 p.m. CST
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.

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.
Sept. 21, 2010, 1:26 a.m. CST
And I do hate Verizon.
Sept. 21, 2010, 1:39 a.m. CST
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.

Sept. 21, 2010, 3:08 a.m. CST
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...

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.

. . . 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.

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

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

. . . 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.
Sept. 21, 2010, 6:59 p.m. CST
just got it.. make sure you get the avi. and not the mkv. version,
Sept. 21, 2010, 8:56 p.m. CST
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.
Sept. 21, 2010, 9:50 p.m. CST
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
