RATED R. SERIOUSLY
Louis Katz performs punchline heavy, New York-style stand up with an understated intellectual edge that’s been lovingly described as “cerebral filth.” Over the course of his career, Louis’ stand up has been featured on NBC, HBO, and 5 times on Comedy Central, including his own half-hour special and an appearance on their storytelling show, “This Is Not Happening,” which has since been viewed over 2.9 million times on YouTube. His latest album, “KATZKILLS,” was named one of the top 5 comedy albums of the year by vulture.com, who called it “a raucous comedy party.” Louis’ first one-hour special was released on Epix in 2022 as part of their “Unprotected Sets” series. His latest special, “Present/Tense,” was released independently on YouTube in late 2023 and became an instant hit with nearly a million views in less than 3 months.
A true comedian’s comedian, Louis’ act has garnered praise from industry legends such as Dave Attell who called him, “one of the best joke writers working today” and Ali Wong who said Louis was, “one of the funniest and most prolific comedians I know.” Marc Maron featured Louis on his WTF podcast twice, saying, “His album and special are hilarious.” But perhaps Doug Stanhope put it best when he said, “Katz is funny to the point that Hitler would have given him a sleeper car on the train.”
If you like your dirty jokes smart and your smart jokes a little filthy, Louis’ act is not to be missed.
