This is the first time I've heard of Louis C.K. and I didn't know what to expect.

Within the first third of the show, he centers a portion of his set around what an asshole he is. Of course, this doesn't mean he's actually is an asshole. In fact, I doubt he is, but his set definitely works well around this set-up.

In any case, I like the second third of the show better than the first third, starting with Clifford the Big Red Dog and ending with turning gay for your kid.

Saving the best for last, he has a great closing set.

Overall, Louis C.K. is a good story teller and a good speaker. Occasionally he smiles at his own jokes and this occasionally breaks the mood a bit, as well as shows how much he enjoys telling jokes.

In closing, Louis C.K.'s style of humor isn't for everybody. In particular, I think one should be able to appreciate dirty jokes and jokes which may, in general, be offensive. If you've never seen him before though, then you might as well check it out and see what he has to offer.
