    Louis C.K. on GQLouis C.K. is on the cover of the latest issue of GQ magazine’s comedy issue where they dub him the “undisputed king of comedy” and other superlatives.

    C.K. also admits that he did feel weird that he never felt more suicidal when things were lean for him. And he had moments, darker parts of the comedian’s life when he got into a motorcycle accident and with the comedy bust in the early 90′s, he went broke. The other being after the flop of his supposed big break in Pootie Tang stating, “It never stopped getting worse. I remember thinking, This is too much for me to handle. I wanted to give up. I knew it was my right to. But then a few minutes would go by and I’d realize, I’m still here. In other words, there was no escape from it. And I’d be a little disappointed at not being truly suicidal. I hated being ‘all right.’”

    Also in the comedy issue, everyone’s favorite Veep, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who in her spread, gets hit on, has sex with, and ultimately has a baby with a clown. Read More

    Bill CosbyThe American Comedy Awards is one of comedy’s biggest nights. As we previously reported, the awards ceremony has made a nice bump from Comedy Central to NBC this year. The show honored both David Letterman (2011) and Don Rickles (2012) with one of it’s most prestigious awards, The Johnny Carson Award for Comedic Excellence. This year the guest of honor receiving the award is none other than Mr. Bill Cosby. It’s hard to argue someone else being more deserving of the iconic award.

We are delighted to honor him with the Johnny Carson Award during the network’s inaugural broadcast of the ‘American Comedy Awards.’” Read More
