How he battled with FX to get so much control over Louie: I got it by demanding it and refusing to do the show any other way at all and by having the leverage that I was completely willing to walk away without doing the show and by agreeing to an extremely low budget so that they could offset the risk of giving me this freedom becuase they are risking less money.
His love for Ricky Gervais: I think that with The Office, Ricky created somethign that the world will never forget. It was so human. It was somethign that would have made Dickens beat his ugly wife in anger.
I love Ricky.
If fans have gotten aggressive after one of his shows: I have been told that people walked out of my show in a huff or somber disgust. but I never witnessed it much or had anyone come up to me. I get emails sometimes from people offended by stuff. an interesting pattern is that when I did the video about the catholic church fucking boys I got a lot of christians writing me angry emails. they all woudl follow the same pattern. “how can you say such things about the lord” and then “You are a fucking sick disgusting piece of shit” and then “If i ever see you in person I’m goign to bash your fucking scull in” and then something else violet that is like a weird physical threat that I never heard before. So… there’s that.
In response to a former PA from one of his shows who remembers a girl offering to have sex with him afterwards: haha. i remember that. are you female? Because the funny thing is I remember there was a young working woman standing there with a walkie on her hip as this kind of desperate (not uncute) young girls is openly offering to fuck me. I remember the juxtoposition. When you’re a dad, you see every grown female, especially young ones, as possible models for your daughter’s future. I remember thinking that I would never let this working woman down by fucking this chick between shows. Plus I don’t do that.
anyway maybe it wasn’t you. are you sure you’re not the woman who offered to blow me?
How has it changed?
I don’t really hang around after shows. I bolt.
I think the idea of fucking someone who just watched you perform is… it’s just not me. I mean, keep trying ladies. You never know! Maybe next time there won’t be a well adjusted and bright young woman acting as my concious and ruining what may have been a terrificly depressing blowjob!
And sure, Louis had something to promote, but unlike a celebrity who might pop in to Reddit for 5 questions and relentlessly plug a new movie/album, Louis humbly asked that Redditors consider buying his new comedy special Louis C.K. Live at the Beacon Theater. It’s only $5 and a lot better than downloading a torrent since we all know that Louis C.K. isn’t some big corporation to screw over but a guy just trying to get his work out there. He spent two hours on Reddit; it’s the least we can do, right?
