This show and the next, with Sandra Tsing Loh, are very parenting-focused. Does anyone read any great parenting blogs that they could share this with? It seems like such a great fit, and I'm really proud of this interview.

this was some of the funniest, most honest comedy about fatherhood that I've ever heard. All prospective dads, listen well.
Dave, (father of three)

This is blow-your-mind obvious, but Heather at http://dooce.com. She would love this. I'll e-mail.

Being in the process of a divorce right now myself, I really found that part of the interview insightful.

Lots of people have been telling me they're sorry, because they don;t understand how happy I am now compared to before.

When Louis said "No good marriage ends in divorce" (or whatever the actual quote was) it hit home in a really good way.

Great interview as usual, Jesse.

I have the highest admiration for Mr. CK, not just because he's one of the funniest comedians I've ever seen, but also because of his whole approach to doing comedy. This insightful, interesting, and hilarious interview just gave me more reasons to admire the guy.

-Brian

P.S. Louis is on "Conan" tonight.

P.S. II: I loved your Andy Daly interview, too. He's such a great guy, obviously, and those clips you played from "Nine Sweaters" were hilarious.

P.S. III: I have to catch up on your other recent interviews when I get a chance.

P.S. IV: I saw the article about your marriage in the NY Times a few weeks ago. I'm very happy for you and your beautiful wife. Congratulations, sir.

HAH!

This is one of my favorite SNL sketches ever, and I hadn't even noticed Brian before!

Wow, you have good eyes, arcuRADIO. By the way, that's my wife Miriam in the club as the woman who says, "I had two of Glenn's babies. He's fantastic." She's had two of MY babies, too, but she's never called me fantastic.

I had a great time making that very quick but very disturbing appearance in "The H is O", but I remember asking Adam why there was suddenly a third guy in the bed with those guys. His simple reply was, "I have no idea", and that was good enough for me.

I'm glad you like that short as much as I do, Jesse.

-Brian

Before hearing this interview I wasn't sure what I thought of Louis CK. I'd only heard his material from when he was younger, and just thought it was run-of-the-mill dirty stuff. That said, after hearing this interview I want to hear as much Louis CK as I can, because I loved hearing him talk about his kids. "Boys fuck shit up and girls are fucked up" is perhaps the most accurate gender generalization I've ever heard. And the examples he gave were PERFECT.
