Louis CK is a standup comic, writer and director. His newest hour-long comedy special, Louis CK: Chewed Up will soon air on Showtime, and he’s on the road now with another hour of comedy called Hilarious. He created and starred in the HBO sitcom Lucky Louie, and wrote and directed the cult film Pootie Tang. He talked with us about how the difficulties of his family life manifest on stage, and about how the legacy of George Carlin inspired him as a comic.
Louis has been a guest on The Sound several times. You can hear him talk about Lucky Louie and his first specials here. Our first interview with Louie, in the College Years, can be downloaded from this link.
