Louis C.K.’s ‘SNL’ Promo: Come Hell Or High Water, There’s Comedy to Be Had


If there’s anything that late night New York-based comedy shows have proven this week in the face of Hurricane Sandy, it’s that come hell or high water (which has, quite literally, been the case) the show must go on. Letterman has done it, Fallon has done it, and now Saturday Night Live is gearing up to do it, which is especially great considering man of the hour Louis C.K. is hosting for the first time in his career. (Though, as SplitSider.com pointed out in their fascinating piece, the comedian has a long history with the series.) 
The promo video for the Emmy-winning Louie creator/star’s SNL stint was released on Wednesday, and it’s everything C.K. fans would hope for. The clip features the host alongside fellow terrific human Bill Hader, in a series of hilarious rapid-fire gags… including Louis dressed up as Hader’s mom (he looked much prettier here), experiencing the horrors of the haunted 30 Rock studio 8H, and, of course, surviving the storm. They’re all pulled off with Louis’ pitch perfect timing and that signature deadpan, uncomfortable grimace he’s all but turned into an art form. 
Make sure you stay until the very end of the video so you can hear C.K. say, “What the f**k is wrong with you people? What kinda s**t is this?” Watch: 

Louis C.K.’s episode of Saturday Night Live airs on November 3 with musical guests .fun, which is exactly what the show should be. Plus, it gives us something to tide us over until 2014
