Louis CK is so damned clever that it makes me angry. He can walk the line between offensiveness and tact while pounding at social issues like few other comics.
Exactly and he approaches observational/experience humor in a way that is ridiculous. It's so clever and so well delivered you can't even tell he's doing the same type of humor as Seinfeld.
Just on a completely different level of awesome.

What OTOHis more creative and layered than any standup act I've ever seen. It feels like high art but isn't pretentious at all, oh and its funny. Hilarious actually. Its a live routine but he tell at least one joke specifically for the Netflix/at-home audience ("video editors"). The amount of detail is just awesome.

Louis C.K. Says......not even close.
Just finished listening to "what.". I think Bo lets the cat out of the bag about halfway through when he mentions Steve Martin and George Carlin in the bit about his left brain / right brain. Who was funnier, Martin or CK? I have no idea, they are so different.
Bo isn't really standup in that light, more of a performance/concept artist, and at age 23 he already manages not to look small if compared to Martin. I look forward to seeing what he creates in the next 30 years and am sorry to be so late to the party already.
/ took me this long to watch a 1-hour video? Check the timestamps. Either I have a life or else I am real slow. Your call.

I love seeing C.K. get interviewed. He's excellent. I'm pretty lukewarm on his standup though. Its like Arrested Development season 4. Its incredibly clever, but its just not laugh out loud stuff in my opinion. That isn't meant to discredit him in anyway.
