It’s time we just call 2010 what it really is: the year of Louis CK.
With his new FX sitcom Louie off and running, garnering more favorable reviews then his last attempt at at a television show, there’s more good news for Louis and his fans. Finally, after a year of mass anticipation, his live stand-up concert film, Louis CK: Hilarious, will be airing on EPIX Sept. 18.
After the premiere it will be available through EPIX’s Video On Demand service and online at epixhd.com. We know you have all been dying to see this film after making history by being the only stand-up film to ever be presented at The Sundance Film Festival, and raking in rave reviews from top critics.
So, if you aren’t an EPIX subscriber you may want to think about subscribing. The fledgling cable channel has already cranked out new hours from Lewis Black, David Cross and Janeane Garofalo; not to mention, they were just nominated for an Emmy (Eddie Izzard’s Believe).
Hilarious will also get a limited release in theaters before its EPIX premiere. If you can’t get out to one of the theater shows. Comedy Central will also air the special in 2011, only to be followed, of course, by the DVD release of Hilarious. You can put it on the shelf next to Chewed Up and Shameless to complete your CK trilogy, and cherish it forever.
