Louis C.K.’s Environmentalist Jokes Get Animated

After seeing Louis C.K. perform at the Beacon Theater back in 2011, I was struck by how much more political some his material seemed. Exhibit A: a bit about the environment and Christianity, in which C.K. suggests that if you believe in a Biblical God, you have to believe that he would be pissed at what we have done to the planet he created for us.

Now that riff, which you can hear in full on his Live at the Beacon Theater special, has become a short animated film, thanks to the C.K. fans at JRoneyMedia. Enjoy.
