Watch Louis CK on Hillary (with Minimal Trump Bashing), the Prospect of Dancing, and Walking Around NYC with His Fly Down
When you see Louis CK on TV these days, expect a deeply human story born out of very simple, relatable embarrassment, an original angle on the zeitgeist, and comparisons that come out of a left field for comedic effect. Those are some of the big elements that have made him this balance between a grounded, organic comedian/storyteller/filmmaker while maintaining a bit of his absurdist flights of fancy.
He delivered on all three in his appearance on Conan last night starting of with a great case for Hillary Clinton being President sans very many digs at Trump and his supporters.
Then, he followed it up with a story about how he learned the value of honesty and openness through walking around the city with his fly down and open and then breaking down the idea of dancing, both as something that can empower and also promise someone a heartbreaking path in life.
If you use a bit of imagination, you can make this up as an episode of Louie to play out in your head.
Undecided: The Movie, the Movie Following Two Undecided Pranksters on the Campaign Trail, Is Now on Netflix
So much crazy stuff has happened this election just in the past month that it seems crazy that the rest of it even happened.
You probably even forgot that Jason Selvig and Davram Stiefler starred in a faux documentary where they went along the election campaign trail as two “undecideds” and attempted to see what each campaign was about as well as prank the likes of Jeb Bush, Trump, Clinton, Rubio, Ben Carson, etc. Aasif Mandvi and Jena Friedman from The Daily Show with Jon Stewart are pushing them along the whole way in this crazy journey captured in Undecided: The Movie.
Along with Triumph the Insult Comic Dog’s election coverage, you might feel slightly less on edge leading up to November 8th with this doc. It’s available to stream now on Netflix.

Full Frontal with Samantha Bee Went to a Gay Bar and a Sports Bar to Watch the First Presidential Debate

Stephen Colbert Interviews Cartoon Hillary Clinton and Nails It
Stephen Colbert is really getting to fly during these two weeks during the major political party conventions. Sending up the RNC was Colbert definitely thriving back in his wheelhouse last week.
With this week’s Democratic National Convention, Stephen and his staff at The Late Show really get to show off just how sharp they are at political satire/comedy they really are.
Case in point: the cartoon version of Hillary Clinton doing an interview with Stephen, a la the cartoon Donald Trump that Colbert also interviewed earlier this year.
It’s honestly one of the best send ups of Hillary we’ve seen in this election year thus far.
