In Which Emmy Winner Louie C.K. Gets in Shape on the Lower East Side
Louie C.K. certainly knows what he’s doing, winning an Emmy last night for “Outstanding Writing for a Comedy” on his eponymous FX hit Louie. The dramedy is unbelievably badass, evoking melancholic humor and themes of underdog struggle through the lens of a not-so-glamorous New York City. Of course, it also helps to have current and past comedic stars rolling through the set (i.e. Seinfeld, Chris Rock, Robin Williams).
As with previous episodes in the series, there are significant neighborhood shout-outs. In “Late Show Part 3,” we watch as Louie gets in shape for the possible big Late Night gig presented to him a couple weeks earlier. The various workout scenes are seemingly an homage to Rocky.
This Thursday is the final episode of the third season.
