I remember telling my fiancee and her family that HBO was bringing back their Half Hour Comedy show "One Night Stand", that was a regular feature back in the 1980's. Little did I know that we would fine such an amazing and talented comedian. Louis CK is quick, funny and so hilarious. We had to watch this special three times to catch all the jokes we missed because we could not stop laughing. Anytime I get into an argument with my friends and family, we end it with "Shut up and eat your french fries! Also try to catch his earlier "One Night Stand" from 1996 that is shown on HBO Comedy. Just as funny!

Saw Louis on HBO and had to get this one night stand video. This is absolutly hilarious, Just imagine a pissed off guy who tells you about his different daily excapades and his insights that turn into rants. Here is the good part! You will see yourself in these situations(i did)made me laugh at them now. Just my opinion but He is actually telling/showing us to lighten up, make fun of yourself. Sometimes over the top, but the good ones always are lots of cursing if that offends you. Buy it, it wont disappoint

Louis CK's One Night Stand was an HBO stand up routine done a few years back and although it is only 30 minutes long, it is a great buy. I am a huge fan of Louis' work and always find myself having to pause or rewind in-between bursts of laughter to catch all of the jokes. Hands down one of the best comedians out there and this is some of his most original work.

GREAT material for me!

The final cut set is pretty short (~30 min), but it kept me laughing--which is better than some that are an hour with some downtime. Some of the jokes had me laughing harder than I have in a while. There's plenty of extras too if a 30 minute feature isn't long enough.

There's about 15 more minutes of deleted jokes from the set and you can watch them all back-to-back with a "play all" feature. My ONLY negative for this DVD is that you don't have an option to watch a full, uncut version. Not that big of a deal though.
There's also an early set Louie did in '95 at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Apsen -- Young Comedians Special -- that's about 20-30 minutes itself. It's interesting to see how his act and stage presence has evolved. You can tell it took him a little while to warm up to that performance--not that it was bad or anything.
There is a behind the scenes segment from his first show "Lucky Louie" too. A trailer for the show too.
It's totally worth the current $8!

This DVD is Hilarious. I still like Chewed Up the best, but I have found that anything Louis CK creates is funny!

This is Louis CK at his best, just as he was rising to fame. This 30 minutes flies right by, and it's over so quickly. It's got his signature cynicism, rawness, and irreverency, but with an honesty and straightforwardness that makes it that much funnier. The climax is simply brilliant, as Louis relates how he has to deal with an unending barrage of "why" from his daughter. He takes the joke into an arena that I don't see other comedians broaching, describing how his 6 year old daughter questions his answers until he ends up in an existential rant. There are a lot of funny comedians out there, but nobody can go from basement level, sophomoric humor to intriguing philosophical questions within minutes like Louis CK.

This guy is brilliant! He has written for NUMEROUS comics like Dana Carvey and for SNL, Conan O'Brien, and others. He is just plain HILARIOUS! irst saw this on HBO and ran across it here at Amazon and snatched it up! Funny stuff about every day life with great bits about his wife and daughter. There is one segment about him being in Hell with Demons that is to die for! I also just caught his NEW show "Shameless" from LA and almost died laughing! If you like this, you'll want that one too!

This DVD also has lots of scenes not in the original HBO cut which are also hilarious--but also not for the faint of heart! This was WELL worth the money!

I never heard of Louis CK before he appeared on Opie and Anthony on XM Satellite Radio. But since his first appearance I have become a huge fan. His brand of humor is pretty dark and twisted, but always hilarious. Lots of family and marriage based material, but dont worry, it never feels hackey.

Anyway, this DVD is great, the only drawback is that it's waaaay too short like all One Night Stand DVD's. More Louis CK would have been more gooder. I would also recommend checking out the Lucky Louie DVD, great show starring Louis CK and Lil' Jimmy Norton!
