    Bobby Kelly (playing Louie's brother) was absolutely perfect. He was hilarious in the beginning scene asking Louie to have the three way and I totally believed his blubbering when his mom wouldn't say she loved him.

    yup he was almost as sad and pathetic as don draper's secretary after receiving the same kind of brush off.

    great acting.

    Last night's ep wasn't quite as good as most of the others have been: the standup wasn't that good, and the scripted parts were uneven and a bit unfocused. I did, however, still enjoy watching it -- what show can hit 100 percent? -- and some parts made me laugh my ass off. When the dog changed, I was dying from Louis's expression, and I was cracking up when he was in the coffee shop.

    i was freaked out and embarrassed watching the episode this afternoon (my weird weekday off).. because i was in a bit of a shame spiral myself... i had to do laundry after then went to a corner store and ended up buying some cookies... then went to the shake shack (bought two burgers) ate the burgers and then started on the cookies when i noticed that louie had the same exact fucking shorts as i had on (old nike shorts)....

    at least I did something productive (backed up my computers and laundry) but still... i was laughing and depressed at the same time... i'm glad my hipster neighbor didn't offer me a bong hit...

    I enjoyed last night's because I thought that it was a little more cohesive with only one story unbroken by stand-up than two stories with stand-up in the middle. That said, Louie's stand-up is really funny, so I guess it's a trade-off.

    Some great scenes in last night's episode. Loved the "shitting in Hitler's mouth" scene.

    Yeah, I forgot about that one...which is odd, because that's probably when I laughed the hardest!

    i think it was louie re-creating something he did as a kid... maybe he was the toughie ginger bully from south boston terrorizing some couple on a date.

    kind of a thing to make amens for past sins.

    South Boston? For some reason I thought he was mexican.

    I thought the episode was pleasantly awkward. Made me dislike the 17-26 age bracket a little more.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louie_CK Louis Szekely was born in Washington, D.C.,[3] the son of Mary and Luis Szekely, an economist.[4] His mother is of Irish Catholic descent and his father, a native of Mexico, is of Mexican Catholic and Hungarian Jewish ancestry.[3][5][6] After spending seven years in Mexico City,[7] Szekely's family moved to Massachusetts—first Framingham and then Newton. His family pronounces their surname, Hungarian-origin Szekely, roughly as [se'-kei], and in his grade-school years he resorted to "C.K." as an easy way to get his name pronounced almost correctly as [si' key].[8]

    Huh...for some reason, I thought he was mostly Eastern European. Well, that explains the red hair and complection.
