Louis C.K. Dallas Week: When You've Run Out of Louis, Turn to the Opie and Anthony Show

Categories: Comedy

Louis C.K. plays two shows the Majestic on Saturday, and since life is looking forward or looking back, we're going to look forward to the hell out of this all week.

Today: Louis on the Opie and Anthony Show.

Never listen to the Opie and Anthony show? Yeah, me neither. We're probably better off. It seems like smart-enough radio at times, but it also seems racist and sexist and wildly sophomoric, and not as entertaining as some of the sophomoric radio that exists out there, starting with Stern. Case in point: The video above, from 2008, in which Anthony argued that Congress would give Obama leniency as the president because he's black.

That said: When you go hunting for more Louis C.K., as the obsessive fan inevitably does, you eventually come across hours -- literally hours -- of audio from C.K.'s appearances on the show. And in ways it's C.K. at his best, because it's fully unscripted, wild, brutally honest. And, as always, hilarious.

Like when they ask him whether he's voting for Obama or Clinton.

"I'm kind of a holding-my-nose-to-both guy," C.K. says. "Because I just farted in a voting booth."

At this point in time there is nobody doing this type of radio as well as Opie and Anthony. I think the general public will have a better understanding of the show when O&A debut their cable show on FX next year. 


Anthony's politics has very little to do with the success of show, he is %110 against Obama and democrats in general. He is after you get past that (and sometime I just have to tune out the show for awhile whne he is in full rant) he is a very funny guy. The show and its guests at its best is like a room full of friends goofing on the news of the day and each other (if you have never heard two or three professional comics slamimg each other you must give them a try)




So you're saying we shouldn't listen to the show yet we should listen to the show. Sounds like lazy journalism to me just begging for howard stern to read it and finally tell you that yes he'll be your daddy. Because clearly you're screaming for attention for all this time nobody has paid you it.
