Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this late-night cable comedy series features sketches and stand-up routines with material that isn't intended for kids of any age. The language is strong (only "f--k" is bleeped -- words like "bitch," "goddamn," "c--k," "p---y," "faggot," and "s--t" are audible), and conversations often include crude references to sexual acts, STDs, and other related material. Characters also drink and smoke. Amid the edgy comedy, the show addresses issues like divorce and parenthood.
Some scenes show implied intercourse (woman bouncing on top of man, etc.). Strong sexual innuendo, as well as frequent frank conversations about masturbation and other sexual/sex-related acts and topics (for example, one episode includes a conversation about a child's infected vagina). Sexual orientation is discussed.
Occasional brawls between friends.
Words like "bitch," "goddamn," "c--k," "p---y," "faggot," "a--hole," and "s--t" are audible and used frequently. The "N" word is also used occasionally. "F--k" is bleeped.
The series looks at divorce and fatherhood through the humor of Louis C.K. -- humor that is frequently the very opposite of politically correct. Few topics are off-limits, and the ones that are discussed are addressed frankly and sometimes graphically.
