Louis C.K.

Louis C.K.

Louis C.K. is a popular American standup comedian and actor. Another one of the coolest fat comedians. He began his career back in the 1980s, but his real success came in 2005 after appearing on HBO. His show “Tattered” was nominated for an Emmy Award in 2008. In 2010, C.K. created the comedy series “Louie,” which received several Emmy nominations and won two of them.


Louis C.K. has appeared in several films and T.V. series, including the drama mini-series “Horace and Pete,” starring Steve Buscemi. In 2017, the comedian tried his hand at directing “I Love You, Daddy,” but it never premiered due to allegations of harassment. Louis pleaded guilty and was out of work for about a year, but then returned to the stage, greeted enthusiastically by fans.


During his performances, C.K. talks about the mundane aspects of life: parenthood, marriage and divorce, and the daily grind. Louis sticks to the classic standup genre, very subtly and shrewdly picking up hidden meanings in any situation. His shows are very realistic, and his jokes are very frank, but not everyone likes the ghetto truth of Louis C.K.’s life.

Lewis Black 

Lewis Black 


American standup comedian, actor, writer, playwright and producer. Another fabulous comedian from the fat comedians. He is best known for his comedy segment “Back in Black” on The Daily Show and his appearances on HBO.


Black is considered one of the most cynical comedians in the United States, and nervousness and anger, often demonstrated during his performances, have become his “calling card”. He currently resides in New York City.


Lewis Black was born and raised in Silver Spring, Maryland. He received his B.A. in Drama from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (he attended the University of Maryland at College Park for a year before enrolling there) and his M.A. in Drama from Yale University’s School of Drama.


In the 1960s, he belonged to the hippie movement, took part in their protests and used large quantities of hallucinogenic and narcotic substances. This experience served, in part, later as the basis for his plays and later performances in the standup genre.


After completing his education, he worked for a time in the federal Bureau of Indian Affairs, where he first encountered the power of the American bureaucracy.


During those young years, Black said, he was idealistic and tried to do his job responsibly, helping Indians on reservations, but could not overcome “walls of bureaucracy, stupidity and callousness”; all this, he said, left a deep mark on his soul and was a significant part of his show of anger and frustration toward the American bureaucracy.


After this period of his life, he decided to devote himself to the main interest of his life, the theater. He wrote more than 40 plays and was the artistic director of the 42nd Street Theater in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of New York City from 1981-1989. After a change in theater management, Black left the theater and continued his career as a standup comedian on television and radio.


During this same period of his life, Black got married. In his autobiography, he wrote that when he walked out of the registry office with his new wife, he saw a man being handcuffed by police officers. Black called the event an ominous omen. The marriage lasted less than a year.


“Back in Black” and the rise in popularity.


In 1996 Black began appearing in his own comedy column, “Back in Black”, on the “Daily Show” and continues to do so today. There he gives his assessment of the political and social events taking place in the United States in a rather unusual way: reading monologues full of cynicism, frustration, and harsh humor, exposing all the problems of American society. The program became a hit and brought Black great fame.

Galifianakis attended the University of North Carolina but failed his final exams, falling just one point short of the required minimum, and moved to New York.


Zach began his artistic journey with small humorous numbers that he gave next to the hamburger vans in Times Square. Gradually his popularity grew, and he began hosting his own television talk show, where he brought to the audience’s attention the underground stars with which he began his career.
