David Lynch Teaches Louis C.K. How to Host The David Letterman Show

As Season 3 of Louie winds to a close, we find things looking up for the hapless Louis CK. The head of CBS invites Louie to his office and gives him a career-defining opportunity, the chance to take over the Late Show from a retiring David Letterman. But that is all predicated on one thing — the schlumpy comedian becoming a polished late-night talk show host in a few short months. And the man tasked with helping Louie make the transition is none other than David Lynch, playing the role of “Jack Dahl.” Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, and Jay Leno all make appearances in this episode. But make no mistake, it’s Lynch, the only non-comedian of the bunch, who provides the biggest laughs.

    i don’t think he should have to wear a suit. But fashion dictates ?

    Comedic talent round around the world. Little dolls are waiting for sunshine.

  • @louis: I think the suit, even just the jacket is symbolic, like the boxing and the running through the streets. Transformation was absolutely required.

    As someone who has sat in the suaricgl family waiting room, I know that distractions are helpful . . . as is keeping a positive attitude for the other families that are waiting to hear. Thank you for putting your energies towards your readers we really appreciate it . . . and are glad to hear that your husband has received a positive prognosis!
