It is no secret that Louis C.K. is one of the most controversial comedians in recent times, more so owing to be one of the people who was accused by multiple women of sexual assault during the MeToo movement.
However, all that is currently not in picture and C.K. unveiled a new stand-up special on Saturday, titled Sincerely Louis C.K, intended for "those who need to laugh."
In a press announcement, the comedian indirectly referenced the coronavirus pandemic by noting that people need to laugh when things get "shitty," or when they are facing situations that are particularly dire, dark and terrifying.
"I feel like there are two kinds of people in this world," C.K. wrote. "One kind needs to laugh when things get shitty. In fact, the shittier things get, the more serious, the more dark the more terrifying, the more dangerous and dire anything is, the more important it is to laugh in the midst of it and often directly in its face."
He continued, "These people believe it’s no coincidence that human beings have survived despite our fragile hairless bodies, through the most difficult of times And that we are the only species, besides ladybugs, Who laugh at life."
Inviting those "who need to laugh," C.K. gave a link to his website, where Sincerely Louis C.K. is available to download and stream for $7.99.
Signing off on the announcement, the comedian wrote, "For those of you that can’t laugh right now I just wish you all the peace you can grab in this shitty shitty time."
