Louis C.K. Uses His ‘Oh My God’ Trailer To Expertly Mock Comedy Special Promos

Louis C.K. knows we know what a promo for a comedy special is supposed to look like, which is exactly why he uses the promo for his upcoming HBO special Oh My God to subvert our expectations. After talking us through the requisite glitz and hyperbole, the three-time Emmy winner dispels the idea that the evening will involve anything other than him standing in front of “whoever shows up” to tell jokes. With a promo this sharp, we can be certain those are going to be some dramatic HBO voice-over worthy jokes though. Check it out below!

Louis C.K.: Oh My God will feature footage from the comedian’s stand up act at Phoenix’s Celebrity Theatre. It is set to air Saturday, April 13th at 10PM on HBO.
