Premieres Wednesday February 9th @ 9:30pm

Comedy Central brings you even more exciting new territory exclusives this February with the critically acclaimed series Louie! Written and directed by stand up comedian and Emmy award winner Louis CK.

The series is loosely based on Louie’s life, showing him as a comic on-stage, and depicting his life off-stage as a newly divorced father of two girls. Finding humor by mixing the mundane elements of life e.g. taking care of his kids or going to the doctor with his unique and almost surreal sense of humor.

This is like a modern day Seinfield, with a mix of sitcom and stand-up, but it’s darker, more modern and will be one of the best comedy programmes you’ll discover this summer.
