Louis C. K. Sums up All Our Feelings About Letterman's Retirement
Since his FX show returns this coming Monday, Louis C.K. is making the usual late night show rounds; tonight he visited Letterman. The two discussed all the hats Louie wears while making his series (writer, director, editor, producer, actor), and the comedian said of them all, he’d give up acting first. Then he offered Dave the job, “You wanna do it, ‘cause you’re gonna be…uh…” I’ll let you guess Letterman’s answer. After politely complimenting Stephen Colbert, Louie says what we’re all thinking, “The fact that you’re leaving basically sucks balls, I think.” Grabbing one of his ever-handy index cards, Dave makes note of that historical phrase. Watch.
Indeed, it TOTALLY SUCKS BALLS. We’ll so miss you, Dave.
