You may or may not know that there was an apparent beef between Louis C.K. and Dane Cook a few years back– mostly over the claim that Cook had lifted a bit from Louie. The joke in question was centered around the funny prospect of being able to name your children anything; Cook favored Transformers-inspired names while Louis thought that maybe something like Ladies And Gentleman and others would make good monikers for children. I always though it was a case of parallel thinking — not joke theft — but, hey, that’s just me. It should also be noted that Steve Martin did a similar bit about naming children many, many years before Dane or Louie. So there’s that.
I say this all to intro the fact that Cook is going to show up on Thurday’s episode of Louie on FX (10:30 pm EST). And I’d imagine some of the storyline has got to do with this real-life situation. Check out the teaser below, which also features Jim Norton. It’s fucking hilarious.
