Louis CK talked blizzard and MSG on ‘Letterman’ (watch), released new comedy special on his website
I guess I didn't have to cancel the show at MSG tonight. I don't blame the mayor. That storm was a monster. We got lucky. When you consider the action taken by the government of entire north east, they got it right. To expect accuracy from each individual mayor is just too much. For us in New York and us in my house and us at MSG it was overblown. But if you expand that 'us' to everyone in the path is the storm, they were spot on. My family in Boston is part of us for me. So that's how I look at it.
While Winter Storm Juno wasn't quite the blizzard in New York City as predicted, tonight's Louis CK show is still canceled. You can fill that void, though, with Louis' new comedy special, Live at the Comedy Store, which was filmed last month at the famous LA spot, and just went up on his website:
I developed and prepared this material over the last year or so, mostly in comedy clubs. This special kind of goes back to when I used to just make noises and be funny for no particular reason. It felt right to shoot this special in a club to give it that live immediate intimate feeling. The show is about an hour long. The opening act, who is seen at the beginning (good place for an opening act) is Jay London. One of my favorite club comics going way back to the late 80s when I first started in working in New York.
I hope you like it.
Louis CK Live at the Comedy Store is available now for five bucks.
Louis talked about his new special, the blizzard, doing big shows like his MSG run, and other stuff on The Late Show with David Letterman last night. Video of that, below...
