NBC star and hot comic brings latest ‘act’ to Borgata for four shows July 13-14
I mean, it hasn’t. Marketing is not a real thing. It’s like they just like make up jargon for very commonsense ideas. So I would say it hasn’t helped at all.
But you’re constantly updating your Web site, and tweeting, and your Tumblr page — that’s kind of almost like a new marketing tool, no?
Yeah, but I mean I don’t know. Is there a marketing class that tells you, like, ‘Hey, if you see a dumb video, like Waka Floka Flame, post it on your Tumblr!’ I mean that’s just like, that’s not marketing. I just do that, but it gives people a reason to come to your Web site. I’m not like ‘Oh, I’ve gotta read all my Twitter messages and then write this.’ I just try to stay off that stuff as much as possible. If I have like tour dates and stuff I’ll tweet ‘em or if I have some dumb joke that comes in my head, I’ll tweet it, but I’m not a professional social media person, I’m just a comedian so I don’t feel any obligation to use that stuff.

During the spring of 2006, three months before Lucky Louie premiered on HBO, it was obvious that Louis C.K. was on his way to becoming the hardest working man in show business.
'I was at a [New York] Knicks game recently and saw a guy use a new T-shirt gun at that game. He was shooting about 20 shirts in the crowd in five seconds. It was crazy. Some celebrities are for stricter gun control laws. I’m for looser T-shirt gun control laws. I would love to drive around the city and just shoot T-shirts into the streets and see what people would do.'
Exclusive, long-term deals are pretty much a relic today. Although there are a handful of artists whose value to a casino is worth a multiple-play contract, the vast majority of showroom bookings are one-and-done one-night-stands.

Two years ago, the mere suggestion that she would simultaneously be executive producing network sitcoms — and starring in one of them — would have probably gotten a bigger laugh than any of Whitney Cummings’ stand-up material.
"When that piece of thing was falling out of the sky I said that I was going to try to go outside and try to get hit by that thing and try to commit suicide, but nobody would see it as a suicide though, so I was going to try to take advantage of it."
“This show is completely scripted. This show is meant to look more like a movie than a TV show. And my comedy is very different than Larry David’s comedy. We have different sensibilities.”
Speaking with comedian Jim Norton recently made me miss my old high school buddies from back home. It conjured up memories of us guys gathered around in our leather jackets, smoking cigarettes in the...

With one Emmy and four nominations under his belt for comedy writing (Late Night with Conan O'Brien, The Chris Rock Show), a strong and steady stand up career, plus the completion of the first season of his new sitcom on HBO, comedian Louis C.K. is feeling kinda "lucky." With both Lucky Louie and his stand up act, Louis C.K. brings us a raw look at family life, marriage and relationships in a way that is real, sometimes ugly, and always laugh-out-loud funny. I recently spoke with this writer, producer, stand-up comedian and actor about his road to success, his future plans, and his need for a little free time. Dave Peña: Congratulations on the first season of Lucky Louie on HBO. What has the show done for your career? Louis C.K.: Well, it's definitely noticeable in the clubs. When I go out to do stand-up I pretty much sell out every show, and people recognize me in the street and stuff, so it's fun. If it stays on TV it'll be even better. DP: Are you planning to produce more episodes? LCK: We're hoping so. They hired us to write eight more scripts, but they haven't pulled the...
