After canceling his Monday evening show at Madison Square Garden due to an impending snowpocalypse (which never came, but better safe than sorry), comedian and TV star Louis CK sent a long email to fans/subscribers that pumped his new special “Louis CK: Live at the Comedy Store,” but mostly waxed wistful about his life in comedy and the charm of comedy clubs. Here’s an excerpt:

[N]ightclubs, comedy clubs, is where comedy is born and where comedy, standup comedy, truly lives,” he writes. “Going back to Abraham Lincoln, who was probably America’s first comedian, Americans have enjoyed gathering at night in small packed (and once smokey) rooms, drinking themselves a bit numb and listening to each other say wicked, crazy, silly, wrongful, delightful, upside-down, careless, offensive, disgusting, whimsical things. Sometimes in long-winded, red faced hyperbole, sometimes in carefully crafted circular, intentionally false and misleading argument. Sometimes in well-chiseled perfectly timed trickery of verbiage. Pun-poetry. One line, one off, half thoughts. Half truths. Non-truths. Broad and hilariously wrongful generalizations, exaggerated prejudices and criticism of nothing and everything while a couple over here shares a pitcher of sangria, this table of guys order round after round of beers.”

Is there a full-blown memoir in the offing? Here’s hoping.
