Louis C.K. was on Charlie Rose earlier this week, and yesterday the show put the interview online. After an awkward opening in which Rose asks C.K. what it’s like to be called a “philosopher-king,” the two have a long chat about comedy, failure, parenting, and more.
It’s not the two-hour interview with Marc Maron or anything—which if you still haven’t listened to yet, get on that—but C.K. fans (and Charlie Rose fans, I guess) will almost certainly enjoy it.
