CK OK

I discovered the standup stylings of comedian Louis CK relatively recently, and have found his work to be nearly unmatched for its ability to not only make a worthwhile point, but also elicit ache-inducing bouts of laughter in the process. Check this out for just one example. Salon's Matt Zoller Seitz explains why FX's Louie, the comedian's experimental sitcom, now in its second year, is one of the best shows on TV -- not necessarily because it always succeeds, but because at least it's always trying to do something different. I agree.
