Louis CK tells stories about his kids to make you laugh at them. My daughter is really something else; she runs the house, he says. She even invented her own rules for Hide and Go Seek, because she sucks at Hide and Seek, and so she covers it with this fucking ruse to level the playing field. And I gotta pretend like shes great, he says. Its bullshit. Not exactly the way proud parents normally talk about their kids, but Louis CK is a refreshing (and hilarious) change of pace from comics who use their childrens cuteness to win an audience over with laughs and awwws.
Louis CKs years of experience have taught him better. Hes written for the Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Conan OBrienand The Chris Rock Show. Besides his kids, his explores topics like married life, his lack of financial responsibility and how nobody defends white trash. Hear how he does it at 8 p.m. The Improv, 7620 Katy Freeway.
