  • Omg Evan your video came just when I needed it ! You know what I was just doing a zombie inspired makeup on myself right now for my next halloween video. It took me a lot of guts to do all of this on camera. Perhaps the most uncomfortable thing so far I have done for youtube. But I told myself this is what you always wanted to do, so do it ! And I did. I am currently in a process of editing it.

  • This man from the clip would be well-advised not laugh at homeless people, and above all, not to put all homeless people in one basket. You never know the story behind the person. If you are homeless because you are drunkard, smoke and go the easy life in general, then it is one thing. And it is light years away, if you are homeless because you stand for something and you do not seek the easy life: you get up train, read, learn, defend your principles and try to be a decent person, at least as far as the provocations to your dignity allow – after all as they say "Dignity is unantastbar!" and everyone has the right to defend him or herself!To put all homeless people in one basket is like grouping all the prisoners under one common denominator – we put the recidivists in jail but Nelson Mandela also was in jail. Does it mean that he is a recidivist. Of course not at all. Going to jail for your principles only adds to your character and early or late history justly honors such men or women.

  • This was awesome, i took so much away from the 10th rule, even when telling a story in a non comedic way, the ideas that Louis Incorporates into his stories make it easy to put yourself in the situations, for me that is because of all of the different perspectives that he puts on one idea, or topic.

    Pastor Rodriguez September 30, 2017 4:46 PM Reply
  • Evan, I find the side bars (specifically the ones with the "coming up in…" segment) you've been adding in to be distracting. I think the idea is good, but when we're presented with a bunch of content it's hard to not read it, and then it becomes pointless to be watching the video in the first place because you can only do 1 thing at a time. Just seems like the video has too much going on. Still appreciate the video.

    • Hate to agree. Evan, I love your channel, and I know you're always improving, but the sidebars are very busy and distracting now. I can't read what tip we're on and look at the interview easily. Still love the vids though! Please tone down the side bar.

  • I like Louie but I couldn't watch the video I could only listen to it because you got crap going on on the left that is distracting me from listening to him. What happened to just having the list why is there an ad for what's coming up next while I'm trying to listen to what's going on now?

  • The best teachers, and some of the most intelligent prophets are comedians. They make our misery digestible – and the best ones do their homework first or the jokes don't really work. They show me it is possible to rant and still have a point, that you can be direct, but end up laughing. Masters, such as Louis CK, make our depressive moments worth feeling. He opened himself up emotionally, and we benefit – but he also proves being honest with ourselves won't kill us. He bluntly shames the nation for good cause – shows us how so much human suffering is of our own doing, but we are glad he does because no other argument is a better defense, and if we don't laugh at ourselves hate continues to grow. Louis takes us by the collar and forces us to acknowledge how we are living and does more to motivate us to lead a decent life better. Louis swears, says vile things, shares dirty thoughts and allows himself to hate certain things – but he is a wise man, has a good heart and lives by convictions he would have whether it made him famous or not.

  • Excellent video, as always, but that sidebar is a little distracting, it just complicates things, your attention is divided even more. And about all the cut out explicit words – that's a crucial and essential part of Louis CK's comedic art, and should be kept in, no matter what. Well, at least that's my take on it. The most important part for me was the importance of "immersing yourself in the craft". There's just no other way around it – whatever you're passionate about – you need to do it with full immersion, surrounding yourself with the craft. Thanks again for a great post.
