A lot of people lie and say thwy never liked him.
Yeah. I will not deny that his early comedy central specials were pretty fricking entertaining.
I wouldn't say it's as egregious as Ron White, but it's similar. Guys go on the road for 10 years before they get their first special and have 10 years of well honed material that they use for that one awesome special, and then their second special sucks because they have to come up with completely new stuff 18 months later and it just isn't as good.
That's why Louis CK is such an animal. To write a new hour every year is insane.
