LOUIS C.K's New HBO STAND-UP SPECIAL Trailer Is Here And Looks Quite Familiar
On 12 March 2013
HBO announced few weeks ago that they will broadcast a new Louis C.K comedy special. The Emmy Award – winning comedian and star of the FX series “Louie” was taped during his 2012 tour and it will be shown this spring.
The announcement represents a bit of a homecoming for Louis C. K., who previously wrote for “The Chris Rock Show” on HBO and starred in his own comedy series, “Lucky Louie,” for a single season on that network. After it canceled “Lucky Louie,” HBO gave Louis C. K. a development deal to produce a set of short films.
Although those never led to a series on HBO, they eventually became the basis of his widely praised FX show. Louis C. K., who announced last month that he was taking a hiatus from “Louie,” has also starred in the stand-up specials “Shameless,” shown on HBO; “Chewed Up,” shown on Showtime; and “Hilarious,” shown on Epix.
HBO released a promo for the next Louis C.K. stand-up special which mocks and makes use of all the genre clichés.
“Oh My God” will premiere on April 13th. He does not want a trailer with all the parade, he makes it different by keeping it simple.
He makes fun of the traditional promos that introduce celebrities in a dramatic style. That sounds familiar to you too? For me it’s a copy after Pablo Francisco’s show about action trailers (watch here).
Louie C.K is a creator, star, producer, writer, director and, as he says about his show, the greatest comedian of blah blah blah and all that.
