Product Description

Profane, vulgar and obscenely funny, Louis C.K. insists on telling the truth, whether you like it or not! Join the Emmy Award-winning stand-up comic and TV star (Lucky Louie) as he shares his thoughts on the stuff everyone thinks about -- male bodily fluids, the joys of being white, the difference between women and girls -- but never has the nerve to say. It's Louis C.K. at his risk-taking best: fearless, honest and totally outrageous!

Amazon.com

Writer-director-performer Louis C.K. brings his no-holds-barred standup comedy style to this cable special, proffering uncomfortable observations about his life as a guy, a husband, and a father. Things start very well with a treatise on the proper use of the word "faggot," which should never, according to C.K., be used as a derogatory term for gay men, but serves as a catch-all insult for everyone and everything else. Also covered is the myth that drinking milk will replenish a man's vital bodily fluids during marathon sex, a subject that somehow segues into C.K.'s ambiguous admission about the fate of any housecat foolish enough to watch him being intimate. Less interesting is a diatribe about the comedian's collision with a deer on the road, and an overlong bit about the frustrations of fatherhood, including fantasies of extreme tough love with small children. The best material arrives at the end, when wisdom seeps into C.K.'s epiphany about arriving at an age when a man stops yearning for sex with girls and pines instead for women a little roughed-up by motherhood, disappointments, and other factors of adulthood. Of course, being C.K., he backpeddles a little about not wanting sex with hot young things, but his heart is in the right place. --Tom Keogh

For my money, Louis C.K. is the current king of comedy. I love that no topic is off limits to him, and that he says things that we always think and feel but often don't have the guts to say. This ridiculously funny show is a perfect-follow up to his great "Shameless" special. If you're looking for big laughs while thinking "I can't believe he just said that--but it's so true" then look no further than Louis C.K.

To watch Louis C.K. perform is to understand that life is a brief, violent revolt against the entropic nature of this universe. Things fall apart, dreams don't come true and time cannot be turned back. The horror of experiencing this is heightened for an intelligent, observant person such as Louis C.K. This DVD shows his brave stand against the darkness, making light of his life by showing its greatest follies.

Nothing is unfamiliar! Family, health, money, love - topics alien to no modern human being. His lancet wit cuts true, leaving you paralyzed with laughter - not the kind of laughter politely manufactured for the benefit of mixed company, but rather, the kind that leaves your abdominals hurting and your throat parched.

The further that Louis C.K. goes beyond the normal euphimism-filled commentary on daily life, the harder it gets to deny the relevance of this material to your personal journey through the world. This middle-aged man, unburdened by the handsomeness of the young and unimpeded by the perspective of the old, takes stock of his life, and in so doing, of yours as well.

Watch this performance by a genius of the form, captured here at the height of his mastery, but do not for one moment think that the time you spend with "Chewed Up" will not give you pause and bring to the surface a few unwanted realizations.

I've always liked Louis C.K. because he seemed quirky and intelligent and knew how to construct a really funny joke. It wasn't until I heard his new material on "Chewed Up" that I gained a new respect for him. A lot the material on this album is family-oriented and his perspective on the institution of marriage and being a family man. This is dangerous territory.

Similar to Eddie Murphy only making banal family films, the validity of comedian comes into question when they become suburbanites and their material focuses solely on that fact. I've heard comedians say that they consciously avoid writing any material involving their family life because they will lose their "edge." Louis C.K., surprisingly, shines with this new set. The title itself is an indication of how he feels in this role as a family man. He riffs on his sexless marriage, the joys and pains of raising two daughters and his horrible eating habits and physique.

If you've seen the underrated and prematurely canceled HBO series "Lucky Louie," you'll have an idea of what to expect from "Chewed Up." C.K. doesn't show the usual reverence for family-life that most comedians show. He gives you the gritty and unpleasant aspects of being a father and husband, but always tempering that with the affection he has for his family.

I'm a huge fan of Louis C.K. I've seen him life a couple of times and have seen all of his stand up on HBO and on video. This one has to be the worst of everything he's done. Please note that this show was done in March 2008. I didn't realize it was that long ago. Mind you, it's prior to his divorce so he talks about his wife and is still wearing a wedding ring. Maybe this is why it wasn't his best work...it seemed he was mentally preoccupied or mentally drained. If you're a Louis C.K. fan, pass on this. You've seen better performances and this one will probably ruin it for you.

Louie is Hilarious. I seen his HBO special and now i'm hooked. I had see his other stand up. His humor is raunchy and dirty so it might not be for everyone. It has a lot of cursing, so if you like clean humor this is not for your. Louie is just a funny funny man.

Some consider this his best, but no matter what album or special you see of CK's, he will never disappoint unless you are a mindless, common denominator, mainstream audience who doesn't get it. If it's not funny, it's because Louis is trying to be philosophical and make you think as well, heaven forbid we use of minds while being entertained!

This is smart observational comedy. Louis is self deprecating and hilarious. This will make anybody with a sense of humor crack up. Married folks and couples with children will particularly appreciate this.

i have been a fan of louis c.k. for quite some time. this is yet another A+, homerun project! not for those with a sensitive sense of humor! he is raunchy and uses foul language.......and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! he says things that few are willing to admit out loud. watch this and his previous one if you appreciate that kind of humor. you won't be disappointed!
