Louis C.K. reddit

Hi. I don't know if I'm doing this right. I can't remember. I'm here to answer your questions. I have new stuff on my website http://www.louisck.com a new audio special called "Louis CK WORD live at Carnegie Hall" and an audio version of SHameless, as well as an audio version of Live at the Beacon, which is free to those who bought the video. Hi. It's me.

Can you describe the moment when you checked your Paypal and saw that Live at the Beacon Theater had made a million dollars.

It was strange. I kept looking at all the different zeros hoping one of them would explain what was going on. It was fun. It was... dirty.

Hey Louis! I truly enjoy the gratuitous amounts of socially unacceptable material in your routine. Is there any subject matter that is out of bounds for Louis CK? Also, other comedians revere you for the amount of material you churn out. What is the source of your creativity?

I don't have a source except I keep thinking of things to say, so far. I don't really relate to the idea of "unacceptable". comedy is talking about anything. So... I do that.

Your "black guy" comments directed at Chris Rock and Tracy Morgan at The Comedy Awards created a bit of a stir here on Reddit a few days ago. And here on Reddit you're a demigod - you could cum in somebody's breakfast cereal accompanied with a generous sprinkling of red pubes and it would still be slurped up by half the people here with pics taken and posted soon after. So if Reddit gets riled up I can imagine you get this kind of reaction all the time.

Do you just laugh this stuff off or are you ever stressed that you might get a shitstorm like Gilbert Gottfried and Tracey Tracy Morgan have for things they've said?

Chris and I call each other White man and black guy. So it was affectionate. When I saw Tracy, it popped in my head to say it again. So I did it. If someone got upset: Oh well. They did that, then.

This is surprisingly tame coming from you. Disappointed.

EDIT: OMFG Louis replied to me! I wrote this to AndyRooney, who, if you guys don't remember, is the guy who e-raped Woody Harrelson.

Oh well then go fuck a robot in it's bolty cunt you bunch of words on a screen with no cock. Also smear shit on your mother's feet. (that's actually an egyptian tradition on the day after mother's day)

Hey Louis. Long time fan. I have began to lose my hair as well. Didn’t really bother me in the beginning as I had a GF, but now I start to take notice to it more and more. How did you come to terms with the fact that one day you will no longer have hair on the top of your head?

I remember the day I saw my hair was thinning. I don't remember caring much. I don't care. It's just hair. It never bothered me much. I was pretty young, too. And it happened and is happening veeery slowly. I have a feeling dead people get really mad when we complain about losing hair.

Do you think you'll ever utilize your numerous talents making a film you have almost complete control over, much like on Louie? Any up-and-comers you would like to work with? I know this probably won't get answered, but it's a pleasure to have your here again Louie, you truly are a hero to me and countless others. I can honestly say that my life has been made infinitely better through your entertainment. Thank you for everything.

I'm not sure what you're asking. At least I answered though! I don't really know many up and comers. there is one guy in San Diego named... fuck what's his name? Kyle. That's his name. search on youtube for "Good Neighbor" they guy in it named Kyle makes me laugh.

You handle a surprising amount of work on Louie (which is great, by the way). How challenging is the workload you've taken there, given how busy you are?
Any particularly fun moments from Parks and Rec that are worth recounting?
Thanks for this!

I'm very busy all of the time. I've put a lot of thought and effort into trying to manage a lot of tasks and staying sane and staying a good father. I've learned a lot about it. I learned somethign about sharks sleeping their brains in sections, like a rolling blackout. I've applied that to my life in a huge way which is probably not smart because I didn't research it or learn about it in depth. Anyway it works. Shark sleep.

Hey Louie, I started stand up about 3 months ago in New York City, can you offer any advice/tips that you with you knew just starting out? Maybe how to handle the New York City rooms better? I know I have to get up as much as possible but I look up to you a lot and your work so anything you could offer would be great. Thanks a lot.

I can't help you at all. The only road to good shows is bad ones. Just go start having a bad time and if you don't give up you will get better.


Hi Louis, fellow mexican here lol. Congratulations on all your success!!

My question is,

What's your favorite mexican food?

Chilaquiles and mole when it's really mole. My Abuelita made a blend of Mexican and Hungarian food that has never been replicated in my life.

Thanks for doing this again Louis, I have two questions:

  1. Your $5 experiment I think was ultimately a big success, and other comedians like Aziz Ansari are following your lead. What do you see for the future of this style? Would you ever do it again?

  2. You recently did damn well at Comedy Central's Comedy awards. That had to be exciting but what would your dream award be and which award are you most proud of? You should definitely try for an EGOT. Or even a CEGOT since you are already 3/5 of the way there.

Love you man, you rock!

I really want a PENGOTS (pulitzer, Emmy, Nobel, Grammy, Oscar, TOny, Stanley Cup)

Does this make you a hockey fan?! Who's your NHL team?

I am from Boston so I am a bruins fan but they lost and I got to go to a Rangers Game and I had great seats. So now I'm a rangers fan. From way back. That's how I am with sports. I refuse to stop myself enjoying two teams that hate each other. Also boston is my home town. But new york is my home. and the rangers game was FUCKING GREAT!

I'm sorry I pirated Live at the Beacon Theater.

Where did you come up with the bit about deer in Chewed Up?

How are the girls doing?

And can you please pester Ricky Gervais to do his AMA already?

Fuck you all i asked for was 5 dollars you piece of shit.

A deer hit my car and then died. so i told it.

None of your fucking business, thief.

No. Because you asked me and you suck shit out of a donkey's shitcup.

Will you come to Birmingham, AL soon/ever? I'll take you on a date. :)

I've been there and I had a great time (lying. It was awful. But not Birmingham's fault.) I'm sure I'll be back. the south is really fun to play on tour.

I would first like to kiss your ass with generic compliments. Then I would like to ask you a boring question about your work. Is that cool?

Totally cool. I would like to respond by thanking you with a friendly exclaimation point! and then I'd like to be really humble and earnest and say I'm just so lucky to have the job.

Hey, I have a better idea. Why don't we both just take a long nap?

I haven't had pizza in a long time. And I'm fatter now.

Hi there. Thanks for doing the AMA :)

Have you run into Ewan McGregor since he told you to put your money where your mouth is?

No. We don't do the same kinds of things. Unless he starts killing and stuffing homeless people I'll probably never run into him. I would totally kiss him right on the lips, though. Totally.

Are you wearing a black t-shirt right now?

It's dark blue. But I just vomited black blood like the lady in the french novel so now it is black.

So I'm gonna be that asshole that asks if you wanna read a script a wrote for a tv show I'm working on. Gotta start somewhere, right? By the way, I really dig your shit. Thanks for being intelligent.

No I will not read it or anyone else's script. I am just irresponsible and lazy. I have a script in my email from a man who is a god in film making and I just haven't fucking read it.

Hey Louis. You're by far the funniest comedian of the past 5 years, but you reached success a lot later in life than other comedians. So I have 2 questions:

1) What kept you motivated all those years before you hit it big?

2) What do you think was the most important change that you made to your act or in your life that thrust you into the spotlight?

Thanks, asshole.

Actually most comedians who's success really sticks come to it late in life. It takes a long time to make a really successful comedian and I've known that from the start, truly. I always expected that I'd work in obscurity for a long long time. It's waht it takes and to me it was worth it. I have also alway found new and fun ways to make a living, writing for others, ect.

Do you ever find yourself on reddit now that you discovered it since the previous iama?

this is my second time here. I just have to much to do to roam around stuff like this. It seems like a great thing. I just can't do it. I killed my facebook page years ago because time clicking around is just dead time. Your brain isn't resting and it isn't doing. I think people have to get their heads around this thing. All this unmitigated input is hurting folks. My opinion.

I just wanted to know what you REALLY think of the Comedy Central comedy awards. Last year you hated it. This year, as you kept winning you just grew more and more weary.

It's just not normal to go in front of people and accept an award. What is that??? how does a human do that? It's weird. so the repetition got strange for me. I am very appreciative though It was just the moments themselves that built to be surreal.




Scarlette Johansen. She is historical, right?

Wasn't everyone?

Not me. I went from twelve back down to nine and then i became a number that you can't comprehend (the first character of it is a peanut) and then I was seven and then now fourty four.

What part of a normal, regular day do you enjoy the most?

walking down a street in new york with my kids and it's warm but not hot outside and we already did a lot of stuff and we're just going home now and talking and looking at people and feeling the air and the sun is going down and it's peaceful yet buzzing with life and stories all around us.

Is there a pet peeve you have when it comes to other comedians, such as mannerisms, voice fluctuation, anything of that sort?

When comedians talk to an audience member and try to make them look dumb when they aren't. Example Comedian: Where are you from? person: Queens. Comedian: What do you do there? person: I live there. comedian: I mean what is your JOB you fucking asshole??? person: (politely to his seat mate as everyone laughs at him) but I work in manhattan.


Who is the tax man? Is there really one? anyway I pay a large amount of taxes. Which is a result of some lucrative years I'm having. So to me this is good news.

  1. As a Kansan - ever consider coming back to the shittiest place around?

  2. What was your favorite part of KC?!

(Also, you nearly killed my brother and I with the doughnut sideways-asshole joke at the Midland show.)

I always have a great time in kansas city. the crowds are great. I also love shitting on kansas city on television. I honestly don't know why.

This is gonna be a weird question....

I'm always telling your jokes to my girlfriend and all she ever say is "Aww, Louis is so cute! I wonder if his daughters have red hair". I mean, everytime.

And I was always like "I guess so". Yea, she really love red hair.

So, err.... I don't want to sound like a pedo or anything. But for her, are they red haired?

One of them does. The other one has wood coming out of her scalp.

What really made you want to go into stand-up instead of a shitty job?

I'd love to have a shitty job. I couldn't hold any down. Standup was the only thing I could stick with. I'm an idiot that way. seriously this is the real answer.

Knock Knock

Death to America.

What do you usually do to get ready for a show?

I open my fucking stupid mouth and put water in it.

what is the progression of a person to succesfull stand up comic?

what is the progression to you writing this to you shutting the fuck up?

Are all of your stories true? I understand some embellishments are expected. I'm really wondering about the waitress that had rape fantasies.

That one was actually true. She was sexy as hell too. She was cool, smart and sexy and she really said that. We were both in our early twenties then. At that age all bets are off. Everyone is dumb in their twenties. God bless 'em.

What is the worst part about doing stand up comedy?

Do you think your use of "nigger" hurt how you are portrayed or do you think that some people are just too uptight about things?


Ever think you'll make another appearance on Parks and Rec?

Maybe. I'm always too busy. I love those people. And Amy is the best.

Could you do me a favour and do a show in London? That'd be neat! Don't worry, you can crash at my place.

I would love to. I used to come to London all the time. But the show schedule and my kids makes for a small window. I think maybe next year.

Hi Louis. It seems that comedians are always some of the first adopters of new tech or distribution media, yourself being a great example of this with Beacon Theatre, as well as Jim Gaffigan and Aziz. Why do you think this is? There must be something structural about stand-up comedy that makes you guys faster to adopt than the film world in general.

I"m not sure if that's universally true about comedians. I really do like putting stuff out this way. The new CD (LIVE AT CARNEGIE HALL) has been on sale since friday and you can get it on louisck.com for 5 dollars, drm free. that has nothing to do with your question. Ha ha! Fucker!

Hello Louis. Maybe a hard quesiton but do you feel there is anything you shouldn't joke about?

Well I shouldn't joke about your fucking dumb face because if I do then I have to think about it and it's just so awful. I want to forget you forever.

Anyway, not really. Jokes are good.

please buy shit on my website louisck.com, now that i insulted your fucking stupid face.

Hey Louie! If you could be offered a guest spot on any show currently on television, what would it be?

I would like to be on that show where you jerk off a dog and try to aim his jizz at a sleeping guy's face. what show is that? Oh yeah, 60 Minutes.

I have some really good jokes for stand-up material based from observation but I'm too scared to go to a comedy club because I don't take rejection well. Any advice?

How do you know they're really good jokes? They're probably not very good. Not if you've never even tried it once.

If you responded to this and told me to go fuck myself I'd die happy.

If you think you have that much control over the tone and feeling during your death, then you are one arrogant cunt.

Hey Louis. You've mentioned dogs several times in your show/stand-up. What pets have you had/currently have? Thanks!

I love dogs. I've had two. They both died. I have no pets. My youngest daughter has a fish tank. More fish have died in it than now live in it, kind of like my closet.

Can my wife give you and hand job? I dont don't have to be there unless you want me to.

No. She better not. let's just not do that, okay? i hope that's okay.

Hi Mr. C.K. I think you're the bee's knees.

Which bee?

would you rather be locked in a trunk with Dane Cook or a basket of rabid badgers?

As long as they stay in the basket, I'd go with the badgers. I don't want to be locked in a trunk with Dane because he's a nice guy and I wouldn't want him to have to be in a trunk just because I chose him over some badgers.

Does it worry you at all that if this Cheap DRM Free entertainment thing catches on, people will turn to piracy again? I have a theory that people are mainly supporting this fad to essentially stick it to the man. I think it's amazing and I would definitely continue buying. But maybe it's just the pessimist in me that thinks that once/if this becomes the norm, people wont have anything to prove to big corporations and go back to their evil ways.


I don't think anything really ever changes in one giant way all of a sudden. People do what they do. I'm offering stuff (new audio special "Live at Carnegie Hall" on louisck.com for 5 dollars) in the way I'm offering it. It's just what I'm doing. And they're doing that.

Hola Louis, quería preguntar si todavía hablas español, y si vas a regresar a México?

Hey Louis, I wanted to know if you still speak Spanish, and are you ever coming back to México?

No hablo espanol mucho. (Como puedes hechar una enie?) Mi espanol es muy feo. Voy a ir a Mexico en Julio a ver me abuelita.

Congrats on the Comedy Awards last week (month). Where did you decide to place them? fireplace, mantle, desk?

I have this one shelf that has them all. It looks dumb.

Hi L.C.K.. How are you?

i'm fine how are you? just so you all know I"ve made a bunch of responses that are not submitting or showing errors. I'm trying to go fast but this shit is wonky.

Hi Louie! First post on reddit here. I love seeing you perform in Montreal, and was wondering how come you are not part of the Just for Laughs line-up? You are extremely relevant right now, especially after winning every award known to man, so it is a bit sad not seeing you this summer.

Also, I'm about to post a portrait of you I am working on. Hold on. Please look at it once I do.

I do Montreal every few years. You can't do it every year. It's crazy. I love playing there though. Love it a lot.

So back in like '03 i faked diarrhea (have you ever spelled diarrhea, it's fucking impossible) and left highschool to go smoke some pot and play grand theft auto. You had a routine that was on comedy central that made me a lifelong fan (you may have even had some more hairs).

any idea which one it could have been?

you faked diarrhea? You faked it? I really need to know what went into doing that. You're saying it's hard to spell it when you faked it?

Do you ever let your daughters watch your TV/live shows?

they came with me last time I was on Letterman and they stood right behind the backdrop, about eight feet from where I was performing on the ed sullivan theater stage. It was one of the best things ever.

Hello, relatively new fan to you and your show. What can we expect in terms of uncomfortable situations and depravity in the newest season of your show?

season 3 (starts on June 28th) is going to be very different. I can't really describe it, because I'm bad at that. But I think you'll like it. I hope so, anyway.

Louis, I have this rash, can you take a look at it?

sure. Lift up your shirt.

Just FYI i'm writing a really LONG answer to one question. I'm still here.

Hey louie, big fan and all that. I was wondering what you think makes a person tolerable for you? Especially in terms of people you meet and then they immediately say they are a big fan.

No one has to be tolerated by me. People are who they are. I can opt in or out. I can participate with them or not, but tolerate is a bit... cunty.
as far as fans on the street. Well, that got kind of difficult this year because it became frequent. it's tricky because I find myself in the strange and indefensible position of being really uncomfortable due to something I am very grateful for. I appreciate every person that approaches me to say something. So I kind of invested some brain and heart space and time into puzzling out how do I deal with this? I lived some moments that i didn't like how I reacted so someone being nice. I can't expect anyone to know why it can be stressful. You sort of wan tto be lost in your own gaze and haze of your life and not be noticed constantly by folks and treated strangely and then stared at. But you sort of want a lot of things in life and you don't get all of them and it's gross to complain that people want to say how much they like your work.
okay so I puzzled it out and experimented with a few ways to deal with it. I remembered that when it was earlier in my career, when someone would say something like, once or twice day, I really liked it and felt genuine interest in them and gratitude. Why not now? SO I identified one source of discomfort. Taking pictures. Every person on the planet now has a camera. So it sometimes happens that up to 20 people in one day or more want me to pose with them for a picture that they can put on facebook. That's a lot. Also I don't like doing it. It makes me feel weird. When I'm with my kids it takes my attention from them and makes them uncomfortable (and in some cases unsafe) but pretty much 100% of people who approach me want a picture.
Okay so I separated these two experiences out from each other. Standing on a street corner accepting a compliment and shaking a hand. that's one. And taking a picture with a stranger. That's two. I have ZERO problems with the first and LOTS with the second. And i realized that the inevitability of the second made me shy away from the first. So, what I do now is this: I refuse to ever take a picture with anyone. I just say no. I don't do that. BUt I shake their hand and I talk to them for a bit. Because I like that. I can tell this disappoints people for a second but as we talk they feel okay about it. People who just want the picture and don't want to connect get a little pissed off. But that's okay. They can't always have what they want. And I get to say no to a thing I really don't like, especially that is asked of me a lot. And now with that boundary in place, I feel absolutely no inhibition with folks. I am glad to meet everyone that says hi. EVERYONE. I learn a little about a nice person several times a day. And they are kind to me. And it won't last. So it's great.

I just watched one of your standup specials with my mom over the weekend. What is one of the most embarrasing things that you've done with your mom?

i was in line with my mom at a store once. two cute teenage girls (i was teenage then so it's okay) were standing behind her talking. One of them accidentally stepped on my mom's heel. She said "Ow!" The girl said "Oh my god. I'm so sorry!" My mom said "Well you really did me in!" and turned her back on them. The girls supressed a giggle behind her back. This whole thing made me love my mother WAY more. I'll never forget it.
One of them girls had a fucking can on her too.

He means she had a big ass.

it wasn't big. it was.... good.

Do you keep a journal? Where do you store your ideas an when/how often do they come?

I wish I could. i have a lot of journals with one page half written in.
I sometimes will write myself a quick email on my bb when I think of something.

I just want to say that I enjoy your spread out e-mails. The fact that you don't proofread them is awesome since, let's be honest, fuck proofreading.

fuck proofreading. Okay. Let's do it. Let's fuck that bitch.

What is the most ridiculous thing on this planet?

dogs who don't know that they're dogs.

I'm a 40 year old on my period. Wanna come over and party?

I don't really party. But thank you.

Love your work! My question is: What is the craziest thing to happen to you in your career?

I met with an executive from FOX many years ago. She was going on and on about how perfect it would be for me to do a show there based on my act and how big a fan she was. About an hour into the meeting she said "I love when you talk about your family from Queens!" And I realized she thought I was Gerry Red Wilson, a comedian who has since passed away.


No. I won't do any of that.

When's the last time you've had a Cinnabon at your destination's airport?

I haven't had a single cinnabon since i started doing that bit (and stopped). I only ever eat kale and human flesh.


we shot that episode in Santa Clarita California, which is about 20 minutes drive from a nice cool drink anywhere in Los Angeles. It was only dangerous on the helicopters. I was on one helicopter in the last shot of the whole thing. I wasn't able to belt in before the fucking guy pulled up and started banking way way over on my side. In about ten seconds I was several hundred feet above the earth with my grip on the metal being the one thing keeping me from falling right out of that thing. Goddamn you for making me remember that.

On the previous AMA you told us that you went from a mediocre job to being one of the most successful comedians in the industry today. If you had any advice to give to people today, what would it be? It can be the younger or older generation. What are some things you can tell us that attributed to your success?

well I don't take things personally, I learn from failure and I don't give up.


I played Stockholm and um... the one in Norway. I loved playing there. I'll be back.
Oslo. It was oslo. Right? where the Nobel prize comes from.

Do you use jokes that just pop into your head, or do you sit down and force yourself to actually write jokes onto paper?

I can't sit down and write jokes. I just flows in from some maddeningly elusive place. Believe me if i had an alaska in my brain i would drill baby drill and I'd cum right on Sarah's back while I was there.

I can see Russia from my house!

yeah baby. keep looking at russia while I pound your sweet, and wrong-headed pussy.

would you please put up a bitcoin address to pay for your show in bitcoin? thank you


Hey Lou, long time listener, first time caller. I love your stand up and your show, in that order. I hope you make it to milwaukee sometime soon, you are one of the only comedians I am dying to see live. Also, any plans of doing another 5 dollar stand up?

I love milwaukee. I am coming there on my fall tour which will be on sale on my website.
In fact, thanks for asking, I already have two new 5$ products on my website http://www.louisck.com Live at Carnegie Hall and an audio version of Shameless. Aids.

Hey Louis! This really seems to be your year for Comedy! How did it really feel to have Robin Williams give you a shout out at the comedy awards?

Robin is a great guy.

Huge fan, Louis, which I'm sure a lot of people are. What's the biggest thing you've learned about comedy from creating your own show from scratch and watching it grow?

How fun it is and that I can do it better if I keep doing it.

I have been a huge fan of yours for several years now. (the first bit of your i remember is when you were talking about how you could name your kid anything "ladies and gentleman")

I am new father (9 months) and I have always loved your comedy about raising your kids. The way you say things everyone had been thinking but cant put into words is amazing.

I am a fan of everything you've done and just saw Beacon Street on FX last weekend. So, I finally get a chance to ask you anything and I cant come up with a single damn question, just a bunch of creepy praise.

So I guess...what did you have for breakfast? Your garbage can isn't giving me any hints this morning.

GF Waffles.

Hey Louis! Big fan! My question is simple and sorry if it has been asked before: Looking back at your career so far which moment, venue, joke, etc. Made you finally think to yourself "fuck yeah, I did it"?

The "did it" could be anything, most likely a personal goal. You may not have reached it yet, but I was just wondering.


Ive had a few of those. They feel good. Getting Louie picked up for the first season was great. really great. Probably the best ever. selling out the Chicago theater for 2 shows in one night 7200 seats. That was pretty fist-pumpy too.


don't smoke pot. Don't bitch. Don't give up. Go on stage ANYWHERE. Try fail repeat.

You ever wanted to buy all the plane tickets for a certain flight and fill the seats with people who you've instructed to shit their pants mid-flight, causing the crew to have to waft in shit stench for hours?

No. My favorite people on any airplane are the people working on it. I would like them to shit directly into your eyes, though.

Do you have a favourite stand up or special that you've done? If you have, which one is it, and what made it great?

I can't really watch any of them. Ii'm not the one who's supposed to be watching them.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Do you plan to stay in the spotlight?

I'm only concerned with where my kids will be in 5 years. Hopefully I won't impede their progress.

do you plan on only doing 5 dollar drm free things nowadays?

as long as it stays a good idea. We'll see. It's been really fun to do it and learn about it . Selling tickets to live shows on the site will be next and I'm excited for that too. They won't be 5 bucks, though.

Hello, sir. I saw you the last time you came to New Orleans. It was in a concert hall where the usual entertainment is symphonies, operas, etc. We had to wait in line for 30 mins to get 10oz draft beers before the show and it felt weird getting up during the show to get another. Your set seemed great, but it was a little hard to enjoy given the stuffiness of the venue. Does it bother you when you play at places like this? Would you ever consider playing a regular bar in New Orleans?

well the venue fits more people. It's hard to come to NOLA to do a bar at this point in my life. I guess some people like yourself don't enjoy a show in a place like that but I had a pretty damn good time at that place and the majority of the crowd seemed to also. Next time drink in the parking lot maybe. I dunno.

[No question]

Okay I'm getting close to stopping now, folks. I have to do some post production work on an episode of the show. I should mention that LOUIE returns to FX for season 3 on June 28th at 10:30pm. does anyone have any questions about the show before I go? Or about Live at Carnegie Hall? Or anything? If so please respond to this thread and I'll take a few more here before I go. My eyes are just hurting from going up and down the page. I love doing this so thanks.

Did you reach out to anyone to guest star in the show that flat out denied? Also as a fellow sweaty dude, I imagine the best part of your post show ritual is peeling off the drenched tshirt? AMIRITE?

I got plenty of no thank yous. I am learning though that I am at a point in my career where I get really nice NOs from people. Personally written and nice "No way will i do that" emails.
We do have some great guest stars this year, though. 3 oscar winners, not that that matters (actually 4)

Is the material on WORD brand new? Has it been featured on your show or anywhere else.

a lot of it was on my series in small pieces. i explain that on the site.

Who came up with the concept for the teaser trailer? I thought it was perfect.

a woman named Stephanie Gibbons does all the promos for the show. She is amazing and talented. I do nothing. I show up and let a news paper hit me or i sit on a bench for 5 minutes and I'm done.

Will you be doing anymore singing in season 3 like you did to The Who? I don't think I've ever laughed so hard, and related so much to a television scene.

No. I thought about doing Benny and the Jets but fuck it.

[No question]

I just am realizing that the post i made asking for specific questions will now of course shoot way down to the bottom. So I'm a fucking idiot.

Don't worry, everyone will find your comments, your name has a BLUE background.

hey fuck you. YOUR name has a blue background!! Oh... sorry. thanks

Hey Louis

I have been a huge supporter since Shameless and I shamelessly tell everyone about your intelligent humor.

1) I have been desperately trying to build up the courage to do stand up professionally...is it too late to start at 29?

2) How do/did you learn to deal with the amount of rejection that comes with the profession?

3) When do you feel our society will be ready for you to take them even further with taboo jokes like your comments on boyhood sexuality?
