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.)
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.
