Louis C.K. has made a career in comedy by going places others won't. He can be shockingly crude and deeply insightful in the same sentence.
In his Emmy-award winning TV show called Louie, the comedian basically plays himself — a divorced standup comic in New York with two kids. Season 4 of the show kicked off last week.
Louie is "right where I started him, really," he tells NPR's Rachel Martin. "Some stuff happened, but he ended up back where he was, which sort of is the way things work. It's a zero-sum game, at times."
Ross Reynolds talks with comedian Hari Kondabolu about race in America, the coming white minority and his new album, "Waiting For 2042." Kondabolu will be performing at the Neptune Theatre in Seattle on Saturday, March 29.
