Louis C.K. - Oh My God - HBO Special 4/13/13

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/KEtAfAa67TY" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Premiering April 13, Oh My God is an hour-long stand-up concert that was recorded last month in Phoenix and showcases the Emmy- and Grammy-wining comedian riffing on such topics as “the food chain, animals, divorce, strange anecdotes, broken morality, murder, and mortality."

That trailer was horrible, but I'm a fan so I'll be tuning in.

So the download thing was what a tactic to make HBO start paying more? If so, well played.

I saw the live version when he was in Atlanta in February just before he ended the tour in Phoenix where this was filmed. Laughed my ass off the whole night!

This will eventually be a $5 download as well.

I'm glad this is going to air in April. I was afraid this would be a late summer special. I know it was taped in Nov / Dec of 2012 - glad it is airing so quickly.

The trailer was kind of dumb, but looking forward to this regardless.

I saw him live and loved it, though I was disappointed that he made jokes about how bacon is delicious.

I like Louis' stand up pretty well and just re-watched his 2007 HBO special last night. His show is kind of hit and miss for me though. Still I'm looking forward to this!

I understand that. What I'm saying is he did that as I understand it in part due to the economics of the system in place. The success he had with it suggests to me HBO increased its offer this time.

Oh I got you. Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised.

I don't know if it's his jokes or just his delivery, but this HBO special is not doing anything for me after 15 minutes. I hope it gets better.

The last 40 minutes or so were great.

the bit about taping the kids dance recital on the cell phones and iPads was a fucking riot.

Why aren't you watching? The resolution is in HD.

I loved how he said those parents just want to tape and post it to Facebook and have other people watch it.

Nobody is watching your kids dance recitals on Facebook. Tape 1 second of the dance and 20 minutes of your asshole opening and closing and I guarantee the comments are all the same

That was pretty good stuff. Honestly I've always felt that way about people like that who try to capture things instead of just enjoying the event that they're at. They put more time into trying to get shitty footage of something rather than just taking in the moment and enjoying it.

The crazy thing is.....like Louie said.....people record all that shit.....and it sits on a shelf forever, having never been watched.
