Louie

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Tues­day, 9pm, Com­edy New York fun­ny­man Louis C.K., who took home a swag of Em­mys last week, pow­ers on through his third se­ries. Tonight one of Louie’s young daugh­ters wants to know why he doesn’t have a girl­friend. So he sets off on a quest. A fe­male comic charms him from on­stage at his reg­u­lar venue, the Com­edy Cel­lar, while he watches fas­ci­nated and highly amused from the wings. Smit­ten, they end up in bed to­gether but she is re­pulsed at the idea of hav­ing din­ner with Louie and his girls. A great se­quence fol­lows in which he imag­ines each of the teach­ers in his daugh­ters’ school as his new part­ner. Then a hot book­seller in a book­shop seems to take a shine to him. Louie’s fan­tasies in­trude and he imag­ines mak­ing wild, pas­sion­ate love to her as books rain down like the rose petals in Amer­i­can Beauty. You know, Louie could re­ally use a break. Will his open-hearted, labrador-like ap­peal to the book­seller get her to go out with him? She al­ready knows he has daugh­ters, so surely he’s half­way there.
