Louie’s opening monologue in this episode focuses on the body. Now comedy gets a bad rap at times for its focus on such matters, but there’s long been an association of comedy with the body. (Think of the fake phalli swinging in the breeze during Ancient Greek comedy. Please. Think about it.) I’m not wild about toilet humor, but whether it’s that or stories about sex, I appreciate when the comedian is thoughtful even as they revel in our animal nature.
LOUIE: I’m going to tell you how to have exactly the body you want. You just have to want a shitty body. That’s all it is. You have to want your own shitty, ugly, disgusting body.
