Louis C.K. loves nothing more than a good, quality understatement.
The artist who somehow made loose-fit jeans popular again recently dropped a brand new series on his website Saturday morning.
In August, Louie announced that he’d be taking a break from his own show to work on some new projects. But viewers had no idea what was coming, until he sent out a simple email on Saturday morning announcing the show’s release.
“Hi there. Horace and Pete episode one is available for download. $5. Go here to watch it. We hope you like it. Regards, Louis,” the comedian wrote.
God Louie, you’re such a self-promoter. Calm down!
Titled Horace and Pete, the very dark comedy features comedic heavyweights Steve Buscemi, Aidy Bryant, Edie Falco and the artist himself. The series explores the lives of two slightly depressed Brooklyn bartenders running a — you guessed it — slightly depressed Brooklyn bar.
The first 67-minute episode feels contemporary and topical, with conversations ranging from Super Bowl quarterbacks to Donald Trump.
While Horace and Pete is a dramedy, unlike Louie, the story is structured more like a dark drama than a comedy.
The first episode is currently available for purchase for $5 on Louis’ site.
