When Louis arrives on stage, he gains all of the attention in the room. An odd opening act primes the crowd for the odd act that Louis himself will be giving over the course of the night. Rather than a linear stand-up comedy show, Louis's show constantly sidetracks into derivative ideas. These derivative ideas come out as stereotypical accents and unique hand motions, to drive in every punchline. His writing seems a bit distracted, making it hard for him to connect stories together. At one point, he discusses the sexual pleasures of a rat and then tries to go into a story about him watching The Wizard of Oz with his two daughters. Yet, his delivery helps to make sure that the audience is on the same page as himself, no matter how far away he has traveled from the original joke. It takes skill to constantly be able to connect with an audience with so many different ideas going on in Louis's mind. Most of his jokes are short and to the point, simple but also clever. Clearly, Louis is comfortable on stage no matter how awkward his form of joke-telling gets.
