Louis C.K. Breaks Down the Teaser for His HBO Special (Video)


Before he landed his eponymous, Emmy-winning show on FX, Louis took a stab at the sitcom with this short-lived effort. But his outre sensibility didn't mesh with the multi-camera format...if if he was winking at it the whole time.

FX's Louie might be taking 2013 off, but star Louis C.K. is spending the hiatus well.

In a new 90-second trailer, the Emmy winner has a field day promoting his upcoming HBO stand-up comedy special.

STORY: FX, Louis C.K. Delay 'Louie' Season 4 to Spring 2014

Oh My God, premiering April 13, is the comedian's fourth hourlong special for HBO. It will be culled from one stop on his U.S. tour that kicked off Nov. 14 in San Francisco. Like he does with his FX comedy, Louis C.K. will direct the show.

FX and Louis C.K. announced in early October that Louie would go on an extended hiatus before unspooling its fourth season in spring 2014. The comedian hinted during a call with reporters that his current tour "probably" would be turned into a stand-up special.

Louis C.K., Dave Becky and Blair Breard will executive produce the new special.

Here's the clip.
