A [[GenreThrowback throwback]] to the sitcoms Louis C.K. grew up with like AllInTheFamily, Lucky Louie emulates those shows by not being afraid of a [[BlackComedy frank]] and [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism cynical view]] of life. Lucky Louie also differentiates itself from other modern sitcoms by airing on {{Creator/HBO}}, which means lots of [[ObligatorySwearing swearing]], BlackComedy, [[HotterAndSexier sex based storylines]] and [[NakedPeopleAreFunny nudity]] ([[FanDisservice Male only though.]] [[WordOfGod Female nudity isn't funny]]).

* {{Deconstruction}}: Of [[DomCom Dom Coms]] in general. This show does '''not''' pull any punches in its portrayal of married life and parenthood, PlayedForLaughs though it may be.

** [[Film/EasyA Emma Stone]] also appears in one episode.

-->Louie: "No."
-->Lucy: "Why?"
-->Louie: Because it's 5:00 in the morning. It's too early.
-->Cue Lucy asking "Why?" to everything Louie says, causing his subsequent explanations to gradually veer off in an unrelated direction
