Max Baker 9-7-11 Erin Scheffels COM 357 Louis CK: The Definition of Modern Comedy “There is a huge difference between girls and women. Girls go wild and people love it, nobody would ever buy the ‘Wild Women’ DVD. When girls go wild, they show their tits to people. When women go wild, they kill men and drown their kids in a tub.” Louis CK’s brand of comedy is truly an original one. Although he’s been doing stand-up comedy for almost 25 years now, in the past couple years he’s been slowly getting recognition and it’s very deserving because he is an excellent performer. He knows how to mix politically incorrect thoughts, vulgarity, and truth into one hilarious yet meaningful package. Our book Confident Public Speaking states that attention getting is crucial for any speaker (Sellnow, 2005) and that is one of Louis CK’s specialties. Every bit he has ever had begins with a somewhat controversial and/or politically incorrect statement that really tunes the listener in.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
