Louis C.K. Is Taking an Extended Hiatus From Louie

  It could be a long time before we see new episodes of Louie . Series star/creator Louis C.K. is taking an extended hiatus from his FX series, network chief John Landgraf announced Friday at the TV Critics Association press tour. How long will he step away from the show? The truth is, I really dont know, Landgraf said. Its going to be his choice. He could take a six-month hiatus and come back with some new episodes. He could take a two-year hiatus. Landgraf said FXs relationship with C.K. is analagous to HBOs with Larry David in that C.K. pretty much has carte blanche to start and stop production on his show when he likes. This is not the first time C.K. has taken a break from the show: Nearly two years passed between 2012s season three and the 2014 bow of season four. FX is also still very much in business with the comic on other projects. The network today green-lit Better Things , a new show produced by C.K. alongside his frequent collaborator, Pamela Adlon, and Landgraf said another idea from C.K. is in active development.  Read More...   http://www.vulture.com/2015/08/louis-ck-louie-hiatus.html

How Louis C.K. Became a King of Comedy

  Over the last few years, Louis C.K. has become comedy royalty, due in large part to his much-adored FX series Louie , which closes out its fifth season tonight. C.K., 47, has won two Golden Globes and multiple Emmys; become the first comedian to sell out Madison Square Garden four times in the same month; enjoyed unprecedented creative freedom; and changed the game in terms of how comics promote their work, cutting out the middlemen and distributing many of his specials and independently funded projects on his website for as little as $5. But, as is the case with most in the comedy biz, C.K.'s ascent was the result of many a DIY risk and gamble. He's been on the scene for nearly three decades,in places you might not have suspected. Below, we document the gradual rise of Louis C.K.   Read More... http://www.vulture.com/2015/04/louis-ck-king-of-comedy.html

Louis C.K. Reveals the Filthiest Joke He Ever Got On Air (It Was Pretty Bad)

  Back in the 90s, Louis C.K. was a writer for Late Night With Conan O'Brien , and like any young comedy writer would, he spent his time trying to sneak stuff past NBC's standards and practices. Last night, C.K. returned to Late Night to reveal the story of his greatest triumph: the time he and Dino "Starburns" Stamatopoulos once got a "pearl necklace" joke on the air. Their secret? Nobody else knew what it meant. Then the segment got awkward, because it was apparent much of the audience also didn't know what it meant, forcing Louis and Seth to dance around the subject and generally regret bringing the whole thing up. Were these people never eighth-graders?   Read More...   http://www.vulture.com/2015/05/louie-reveals-the-worst-joke-he-ever-got-on-air.html

Louis C.K. discusses poop, fake penises and a failed 'SNL' audition on 'Late Night'

Louis C.K. has to be one of the frankest, most interesting talk show guests working in show business right now. On Monday's (May 11) "Late Night with Seth Meyers," the "Louie" writer/producer/star runs the gamut from talking about the episode where his character pooped his pants on a New York City street, to Louie's nightmare episode, to his audition for "Saturday Night Live" 20 years ago.On the pooping episode, in which his character can't find a public bathroom to use and therefore just has to let go -- in front of his daughters: "When I came up with that, I was like that's worth doing because that's profound. ... Your whole system gives up on you and then when you decide, I'm deciding it's OK to poop in my pants on the street and you cross over that threshold," says C.K. "As it happens, you're just like, 'God is good.' Everything's better, everything's better."RELATED:... http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Zap2it/~3/MJownzZu7bQ/louis_ck_pooping_pants_fake_penises_failed_snl_audition_video-2015-05
