How To Be A Famous Comedian | Interview with Louis CK

Comedian Louis C.K. Louis C.K. has been called the greatest comedian alive, by GQ Magazine. Louis is definitely at the top of his game. A lot of comedians out there and other students of comedy can learn a great lesson from listening to Louis in this rare 45-minute long interview on NPR. Keep in mind as you listen to Louis. He’s not in it for the money or the fame. He’s in it to be true to himself.

Also keep in mind that Louis C.K. first started in comedy in 1984. That means he’s been doing this for 27 years. So before you think that you’re not going anywhere or you get impatient with where your career is, think about the fact that this business is about perservering. This is one great comedian lesson.

I would like to thank my student David Conolly for sharing this.

Hey Linda! Thanks for taking a moment to comment. Louis is just terrific and you’re so right on the money. I love the line: “He’s brave without being skanky.” The thing with Louis is he makes all these wonderfully bold, courageous statement all while keeping the attitude of “I think I’m right… I might be wrong… but I think I’m right…” So we root for him to to be right!

You Rock!

Thanks for posting this, Jerry. I can’t say enough about Louis CK; every one of his TV episodes is like a miniature movie. So well done. He’s brave without being skanky, which is a fine line for comics to ride. What an example for all of us.
