Louis CK Gets “Philosophical”


“Don’t lie, because lying only fixes everything.”

I don’t know how philosophical Louis CK’s really getting, but I’m enough of a fan of his to give the Washington Post‘s headline writer a pass on this one: “Five times Louis C.K. got really philosophical on late-night talk shows.”

UPDATE: The Huffington Post has published an article on philosophical comedians, including Louis CK, Doug Stanhope, George Carlin, Joe Rogan, and Bill Hicks.

UPDATE 2: Open Court is putting together a Louis CK and Philosophy volume at the moment. Abstracts due July 1st. For more information email [email protected]
