The moniker King of Comedy has belonged to several icons over the years: George Carlin, Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy. But in the 2017, the comedy crown belongs indisputably on the head of Louis C.K., who topped Rolling Stone’s list of The 50 Funniest People Now. His wry, contemptuous outlook and unfiltered honesty result in hours of constantly on-point, relatable and superbly hilarious material. To boot, he is also the star actor, director, writer and producer of the hit show “Louie” on FX, as well as many iconic stand-up comedy performances including Reckless, Shameless, and Live at the Beacon Theater.
Any comedian will tell you that it’s impossible to become a star without a community of equals working to elevate one another. Thus, Louis C.K. may be a ruler of the comedy world, but a monarch he is not, and the scene is blossoming with rising talents and household comics entertaining thousands on the comedy world stage.
