Louis CK Chewed Up

The other night I watched Louis CK's Chewed Up on Watch Instantly.

I had seen some of his bits before, and recently there was some controversy about him, so I felt like checking him out.

He was very funny! The beginning routine about the "faggot" word was offensive to me, and totally oblivious to how hateful the word can be when used by certain people, and how homophobic it is even when it is used in more benign settings.

But after that segment I began to really like his work. Particularly the parts about being overweight and overeating!

Since watching this I've started watching episodes of his TV show (on Netflix), Louie, which is funny and also pretty dark and awkward.
