Louie is an American comedy television series on the FX network that began airing in 2010. It is written, directed, edited and produced by the show's creator, stand-up comedian Louis C.K., who stars as a fictionalized version of himself; a comedian and newly divorced father raising his two daughters in New York City. The show has a loose format that is atypical of television comedy series, consisting of largely unconnected storylines and segments (described as "extended vignettes") that revolve around Louie's life, punctuated by live stand-up performances. Louie, starring Louis C.K., is having an impressive second season, posting year-over-year gains of +57% in Total Viewers and +60% in delivery of Adults 18-49. C.K. was recently received Emmy(R) Award nominations for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series (an FX first) and Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series.
The series is loosely based on Louis C.K.'s life, showing him as a comic on-stage, and depicting his life off-stage as a newly divorced father of two girls. Each episode features either two stories that may or may not connect thematically, or a longer full-episode story (often consisting of numerous connected shorter pieces), all of which revolve around Louie. The pieces are interspersed with segments of C.K.'s stand-up comedy, usually performed in small New York comedy clubs, mainly the Comedy Cellar and Carolines in Manhattan. The stand-up in the show consists of original material recorded for the series. Occasionally, short conversations between Louie and his therapist are also shown.
