Did you know that today is Louis C.K’s 46th birthday? We only know this because of the great bit that Warming Glow has about it over on that site right now. So I thought we should all take a minute and give the brilliant, ginger haired comedian some props. Not only has he injected modern humor with a wonderfully cynical flavor, he is as honest as we all wish we could be, and in the process, side-splitting and hilarious. Nothing is safe to the man. Nothing is off limits. And the world of comedy is that much better off because of him.
What makes Louis C.K so great is that he has payed his dues, and he no longer feels he needs to sugar coat anything. His brand of humor could be considered a bit “adult”, but really, it is just unabashed honesty. Honesty we all laugh at, but all secretly wish we had. That same capacity to be as honest as Louis C.K is. But we need to remember, that’s his job. The best comedians shine mirrors back at society, showing us just how silly we all are sometimes. And no one is holding a bigger or brighter mirror than Louis C.K right now.
So to Louis C.K, we wish a very happy birthday, and for the sake of our own selfishness, many, many more.
