Despite being the writer/director of the cult blaxploitation spoof Pootie Tang and the long-time, Emmy-winning collaborator of Chris Rock, Louis C.K. has never been widely known. But suddenly, there he was, starring in and subsequently fuming publicly over the quick cancellation of HBOs Lucky Louie. As of October 4, hell have logged two hour-long specials in two years, an astounding feat at any stage of a comics career. Not only that, but hes working on a third, one showcasing all the apoplectic befuddlement over domestic life and the world at large thats made him an in-the-know industry favorite.
A week before his Chewed Up premières on Showtime, C.K.s Hilarious Tour hits the Orpheum Theater.
