Louis C.K. is one of our generation's most representative comedians. He's irreverent, boundary-pushing and kind of lazy and grumpy, but in a charming way. He's honest because there's no reason not to be. And he doesn't put up with shit from anybody. You know how ticket agencies charge you all kinds of stupid fees and you have to buy through them because there's no other way to get tickets for stuff? Louis C.K. set it up so that in order to see his show, you have to buy tickets through his site for a flat $45. There's no middle man, and no extra fees. He's popular enough that he can do things like that, and that alone is reason enough to go see him. But he's funny as hell too.
