Customer Reviews

CaliBoyHusker ,

Lou is a beacon of hope for non amateurs...

I’ve seen Lou perform his stand up routines many times and I’ve read all his books. This is a perfect compliment to everything he already does. He has a simplistic, logical comedic view on everything that’s wrong in today’s society. Thumbs up!
