A lot of this material is hilarious, but it's hard not to be struck by how dire much of it is.
It's an impressive return-and a further indication that the hour-long comedy special is an art form with plenty of life left in it.
Once again, Louis C. K. sets up two sides, then finds comedy in the in-between.
If Louis CK 2017 is what we get in exchange for his work in so many other venues, than that's an excellent trade-off. There's more magic in that mic than we realize.
We get a very brilliant stand-up doing a perfectly fine hour of comedy.
Louis C.K. toggles between grouchy and apologetic, his two most oft-used standup comedy gears. He does this to such perfection that even the few moments when the content is weak or a tad forced, he still has his audience on the floor.
His comedy is full of healthy realism, uncomfortable questions, without airs of superiority. [Full review in Spanish]
It's easily his most cohesive special in several years.
It's as if he's having a debate with himself and we're watching.
But if 2017 isn't quite as funny as Louis CK has been known to be, it is a fascinating exercise in pretending Trump never happened.
Few comedians have managed to dodge the dog-caught-the-car problem of successful stand-ups as smoothly as C.K. has. Look no further than his latest special, Netflix's 2017, for proof.
Louis C.K. demonstrates what lifts him above so many other performers: An honesty he can bend into jokes that provoke laughter while also, perhaps, tapping into ideas and feelings his listeners may recognize in themselves.
