Louis C.K. describes the worst part of the subway perfectly.

Hat-tip to Brokelyn for the Link:

Man, I miss his TV show. (The second one, of course, although Lucky Louie wasn’t actually all that terrible.)

Also…

Louis C.K. re-imagines classic jokes:

“I don’t know why the chicken crossed the road… Shouldn’t it be on a farm fucking other chickens?… There is no dialogue or conversation with a chicken; It just gets eaten and I take a shit.”

I got this super depressing e-mail from Louis CK.

Here’s an excerpt:

 Tig is a friend of mine and she is very funny.  I love her voice on stage.  One night I was performing at a club in LA called Largo.  Tig was there.  She was about to go on stage.  I hadn’t seen Tig in about a year and I said how are you?  She replied “well I found out today that I have cancer in both breasts and that it has likely spread to my lymph nodes.  My doctor says it looks real bad. “. She wasn’t kidding.  I said “uh.  Jesus.  Tig.    Well.  Do you… Have your family… Helping?”.  She said “well my mom was with me but a few weeks ago she fell down, hit her head and she died”.  She still wasn’t kidding…

A few days later, I wrote Tig and asked her if I could release this set on my site.  I wanted people to hear what I saw.  What we all saw that night.  She agreed.  The show is on sale for the same 5 dollars I charge for my stuff.  I’m only keeping 1.  She gets the other 4.  Tig has decided to give some of that to cancer research.

Buy the audio set for $5 here:

I never heard of her before but she actually is really funny. And you can fight cancer at the same time.
