If Louis C.K. Wants Us to Talk About Him So Badly, Here’s Why He’s Trash

Recommended Videos

Okay, fine. You want to be gross and double down on your incredibly inappropriate jokes and act like your sexual offenses are a punchline? Fine, I’ll point out why you’re just trash. That’s talking about you, right? That’s giving you the exposure you want?

Mocking children who survived a school shooting, making jokes about 9/11, downplaying your own sexual depravity for laughs … I can go on if you’d like.

Fans lined up to see Louis C.K. perform at San Jose Improv, according to The Daily Beast, forgetting that Louis C.K. is now reduced to offensive jokes for shock value, since he can’t just be a funny human being without insulting people. He apparently started his set with the line “I like to jerk off, and I don’t like being alone.”

Nice, right? So you can whip out your dick in front of women, damage their careers, and then use it as a punchline? And you can still have a career? This is what you’re going to kick things off with on your “comeback”?

So, those who actively paid money to go to this San Jose show, like … that’s on you. You got a misinformed lesson about comedy from a a walking, talking piece of trash. The trash said:

“The whole point of comedy is to say things that you shouldn’t say. That’s the entire point.”

That’s … not true. Comedy isn’t just saying things you shouldn’t. That’s what someone says when they’re not that funny. Comedy is a commentary on something, whether it be critiquing it or trying to reason with it. Making fun of children who had an active shooter in their high school isn’t what I would refer to as peak comedy.

Think it can’t be worse than what’s already out there? Don’t worry! It is!

“I got on a plane once and this couple comes up to me as we’re boarding. There’s an empty seat next to me, and this woman says to me, ‘Would you mind moving so my husband and I can sit together?’ And he’s behind her and he’s like [motions – no]. I didn’t know what to do. I don’t wanna upset him. But I don’t wanna sit with his fucking wife. So I just got off the plane. And then the plane took off. And it hit the World Trade Center.”

Great joke, hilarious, thousands of people died and you used it as a punchline for a terribly set up joke! What pizzaz, what power!

For years, I remember hearing the rumors about Louis C.K. in the comedy community, no one did a thing. They let him get away with it.

I didn’t know how to stop it; I was just an intern at a comedy theater, but I didn’t listen to his sets. I didn’t watch Louie. I didn’t support him. Going to his shows, giving him the fire and power to make these kinds of jokes is feeding the beast. I can’t believe people are still so keen on feeding him now that the curtain has been pulled back.

So Louis C.K., you want to be talked about? That’s fine. Every time you make the news for being the grossest of human beings, I’ll make sure to remind everyone what a piece of garbage you are.
