Often crude but never failing to make the masses laugh, Louis C.K. has become one of the biggest comedians of the 21st century after beginning his career more than 30 years ago. C.K. has been credited with writing for the Late Show with David Letterman, The Chris Rock Show, Late Night with Conan O’Brien and The Dana Carvey Show but is perhaps best known for his critically acclaimed television show Louie, which has been one of the FX network’s biggest shows since it began in 2010.
The beloved comedian was born Louis Szekely in 1967 and spent the majority of his childhood living in Mexico City, where his father’s roots derived. C.K. moved to Boston in his adolescence and has cited the likes of Bill Cosby, Richard Pryor, George Carlin and Steve Martin as paramount influences in his decision to become a writer and comedian.
During the height of the stand-up comedy boom in the 1980s, C.K. found considerable recognition after opening for Jerry Seinfeld and hosting comedy clubs in the latter part of the decade. He would then relocate to New York by the beginning of the 90s, where he would go on to write scripts and sketches for some of the country’s biggest talk show hosts. HBO released his first comedy special in 1996, catapulting the performer into national attention.
C.K. has performed and released more than a half dozen comedy specials since his first stint on HBO. 2012’s Oh My God has arguably been his biggest release yet, receiving a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special, three other Primetime Emmy nominations and a pending Grammy nomination for Best Comedy Album.
While the stand-up circuit has been kind to C.K. in his three-decade-long career, it is his award-winning television show Louie that has propelled him into the national limelight in recent years. The dark comedy follows the eccentric, often morose daily life of Louie, who C.K. plays in a loosely-based role of himself. Through strange encounters with hecklers at a comedy club to looking dimly back on his past transgressions, Louie ultimately comes to realize that life isn’t so bad after all; his daughters are educated and lively, he’s got a steady job and, perhaps most importantly, women still find the time to talk to him. Louie has been a hit on FX since 2010 and will likely continue to see its ratings dominate in the coming seasons.
C.K. continues to tour and has already made massive plans in 2015. For the latest news and updates on the comedian, visit TicketIQ.com.
