AV Club Interview With Louis C.K. 

Interesting (and lengthy) interview with comedian Louis C.K.

Louis C.K. is an extraordinary comedian, but what I find most fascinating about him is his approach to the things surrounding his comedy. He obviously rose to some prominence with the radically different business model he tried when selling his show Live at the Beacon Theater, an approach they also discuss in the interview, and in general he seems very set on trying to improve comedy, in the way it is produced and watched.

One particular comment I think encapsulates this brilliantly:

I like to give [employees] a little more than they want, and I like to ask [viewers] for a little less than they’re willing to give.
