Edinburgh -- Let’s talk about the c-word. The c-bomb. The country without a tree. She-who-must-not-be-named. When “bitch” isn’t doing the trick. We know the word. A word I once vowed to never utter – until I met one. It’s strong, it’s vulgar, it’s a...

Last night, Louis C.K. stopped by Conan for a (thankfully) lengthy desk-side chat. The two funny gingers covered a lot of ground-- how awesome C.K.'s show Louie is, why Louis is shocked there isn't more murder in the world (especially at Disneyland); and perhaps most noteworthy,...
