Finally, that Chewbacca tribute to “Louie” as “Chewie” you’ve been waiting for

Just in time for this week’s fifth-season premiere of Louie on FX and the upcoming seventh Star Wars movie later in 2015, Nerdist Industries presents this simple, loving tribute to both with “Chewie.”

Starring Chewbacca as a stand-up comedian going through the same motions as Louis C.K., right down to the walk to the Comedy Cellar — and all of the little details, too! From a concept by Jack Herrguth. Appreciate the shout-out to Cellar manager Steve Fabricant re-enacting his role in the actual Louie opening credits, as well as the attention to one NSFW cameo. Aren’t you a little Stormtrooper? Roll the clip!
