Louis is great. I’ve pretty much seen all of his stuff, from Weird Weekends to his later stuff. Favorites include the Black Nationalists, the meth heads in Fresno, San Quentin prison, the one on rap, and of course the Porn Valley one.
His talent, I think, is to get people to trust him and share aspects of their lives that are usually for “insiders.” He has a knack for appearing completely naïve without coming across as an asshole, or mocking, or a smartass (although the last one is hardest to master). He’s likeable - but sometimes he’s too unknowing, or daft.
If there’s a new one on Phelps I’ll be checking it out soon… thanks for the heads up!
