This sums up the experience many of us old folks have while interacting with many (not all of course) young people who have shit-ass jobs.
BTW, mods, a while ago you added a bunch of new categories when they were suggested. I think we need a humor category, too.
Really funny because it is so true.
He does a great Lumpy Space Princess. Thanks! I am off to work now, with a smile on my face. A little Louis CK in the morning, and I'm emotionally ready to face the day.
It's a good thing he didn't ask to see the kid's forty-year-old manager. His head might have exploded before he could finish the bit.
Hmm. This guy isn't actually funny.
The god of humor has made a ruling. Thanks for the clarification. A rant can't be funny, nor can the nuance of setting yourself up to be the indirect object of humor.
And I don't think this guy is aiming for laughs, either
Yeah, except that he IS a comedian.
He's probably the top comedian on the scene today, and certainly any listing that doesn't put him in the top 5 has something wrong with it.
A lot of comedy is based on observations of human quirks and foibles, and few do it better than Louis CK.
You can't generally go off of a single bit. Of the top comedians around (including everyone you mentioned aside from Izzard, perhaps), all of them have had a joke where my initial response was "Hey, fuck you buddy!"
Very angry guy. Is his whole routine about being a hater?
Variation on Crocodile Dundee: "That's not hate. THIS is hate!"
