In a profile of Louis CK on Today this morning, Jamie Gangel spoke with the comedian about the “view from the top” – the two discuss Louis’ name being amongst Time Magazine’s Top 100 Most Influential People list, and Gangel questions Louis about going for the “cheap joke.”
“Anyone who thinks those are easy laughs,” says CK, “go ahead and try to get those laughs. They’re not easy. There’s no such thing as a cheap laugh. They all cost something.”
Louis also teases the idea of doing a “clean” special and defends his anti-Sarah Palin tweets that had a lot of people pretty upset in 2010.
