A comedian grows

There is lots of sexual content in this series. But the growth of a Louie, a divorced comedian raising two girls, is great. He learns that his way isn't always the right way. He also tries to help others. Lots of laughs and dramatic moments.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much sex
Too much swearing
