Congratulations to the comedian Louis C.K. whose half-hour F/X show Louie was just nominated for an Emmy Award (full list of nominees here). To celebrate, here's one of our favorite of his riffs from a 2009 appearance on the Conan O'Brien show. (Speaking of Conan, don't miss his Dartmouth graduation address.)
We love Louis for many reasons, not the least of which is that he can build a killer, harangue-free rant around lines like "the foundations of capitalism are crumbling." Enjoy.
