Louis C.K. is an American stand-up comedian, writer, actor, and filmmaker. Rolling Stone ranked his stand-up special 'Shameless' #3 on their "Divine Comedy: 25 Best Stand-Up Specials & Movies of All Time" list and ranked him #4 on its 2017 list of the 50 best stand-up comics of all time.
C.K. created and starred in the FX comedy-drama series 'Louie' (2010-15) and his self-funded web series 'Horace and Pete' (2016). He also co-created the FX shows 'Baskets' and 'Better Things'.
In 2017, C.K. admitted to several incidents of sexual misconduct. This resulted in widespread criticism and caused his 2017 film 'I Love You, Daddy' to be pulled from distribution prior to its release, halting his stand-up career and many significant professional repercussions.
In 2018 he returned to stand-up comedy and in 2019 announced an international tour. In 2020, C.K. released his comeback special, 'Sincerely Louis C.K.' on his website.
