Last night on Letterman, Louis took a break from sitting on couches talking about his TV show to do some straight-up comedy. Verrrry niiiice!

Louis C.K. is really funny! It’s weird that no one ever talks about how funny he is and that he doesn’t get any press or TV shows. Oh well, our little secret! I honestly wish every day could start with a Louis C.K. stand-up set. That’s MY morning coffee. Just kidding. My morning coffee is morning coffee. (You know what is gross? People who drink Diet Coke for breakfast. Or really just anyone who drinks Diet Coke before 11PM.) It would be nice, though, to have one of these every morning. Hoda and Kathie Lee should really consider reconfiguring the fourth hour of the Today Show to include more Louis C.K. stand-up material. Like, when that blonde girl* gets hospitalized for taking too many Phony Cheerfulness Pills, he could fill in for her “The Perfect Make-up For Your Facebook Photo” segments.

*I like how I refer to her as that blonde girl and pretend like I don’t know what her name is. It’s Sarah Haines! Follow her on Twitter!

  1. I think most things in life would be better with more Louis C.K. stand up in it. Like at the deli counter, when I pull the little number tag out and I’m like 20 numbers away, it should give me a quick little Louis C.K. joke. Or in the dentist’s office, waiting to be called in for a teeth cleaning. Instead of some smooth Kenny G, they should just have Louis C.K. on loop. That would calm me down a bit, I think.

  2. If I don’t drink Diet Coke for breakfast, then where will I hide the rum?

  3. Morning Diet Coke drinker here (well Diet Dr Pepper, but the principle is the same). There is nothing gross about it! No one ever complains about Diet Coke breath now do they?

  4. Diet Coke before 11 is just as gross as Diet Coke after 11, because diet soda in general is just gross. You can take your artificial sweeteners and head straight outta town, mister.

  5. I love his hot girl face. Louis C.K., I love you – let’s get married and hate everyone together!

  6. What about Diet Mountain Dew? My mornings are EXXXXXXTREEEEEEEEME!

  7. Diet Coke is gross, but the people who drink it are just masochists. Classic Coke for breakfast is awesome.

  8. GOD, YES, diet coke for breakfast is disgusting. I’m in a constant battle with my roommate to clean up her diet coke cans that she leaves in the bathroom while she does her hair in the morning. why are you drinking pop in the bathroom? how can you do your hair and drink diet coke (she uses a flatiron)? why are you drinking this at 7am?

    anyways, louis ck was great. wasn’t last night louie also amazing?

    • Drinking Diet Coke first thing in the morning is like having a cigarette first thing in the morning, no matter how addicted you are you just think “Ugh, this isn’t even satisfying, it’s just gross.”

  9. Does the last joke sound familiar to anyone else? Parks and Rec (I forget which episode), Ron Swanson: “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Don’t teach a man to fish, and you feed yourself. He’s a grown man. Fishing’s not that hard.”

    • Yeah, it’s pretty similar to that line. I wonder if he watched Parks and Rec after he finished guest acting on it? Maybe it stuck with him subconsciously.

    • Nothing tops Doug Stanhope’s rant:

      “They say if you give a man a fish, he’ll eat for a day, but if you teach a man to fish…. then he’s gotta get a fishing license, but he doesn’t have any money. So he’s got to get a job and get into the Social Security system and pay taxes, and now you’re gonna audit the poor cocksucker, ’cause he’s not really good with math. So he’ll pull the IRS van up to your house, and he’ll take all your shit. He’ll take your black velvet Elvis and your Batman toothbrush, and your penis pump, and that all goes up for auction with the burden of proof on you because you forgot to carry the one, ’cause you were just worried about eating a fucking fish, and you couldn’t even cook the fish ’cause you needed a permit for an open flame. Then the Health Department is going to start asking you a lot of questions about where are you going to dump the scales and the guts…”

  10. I saw Louis CK yesterday, actually! He was in Montreal for the third year in a row. It’s been fun to watch him graduate from small venues to massive theaters.

  11. Louis CK: Chaotic Neutral.
