Nobody is Happy
Reflecting on how great kids have it these days with technology and other modern conveniences, Louis CK gives us laughs during an appearance on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien." He reminisces about the old days of rotary telephones and banking hours to argue that things are so much better in modern times with in-flight wifi and smartphones. "Everything is amazing right now and nobody is happy."

Farts are Funny
"You don't have to be smart to laugh at farts, but you'd have to be stupid not to.
"Farts take a lot of sh*t." Only Louis can so accurately and passionately express his support and love of farts and fart humor. If you don’t already think farts are hilarious, you will after this CK appearance on "The Daily Show."

Babies in the Garbage
Stressed from the complicated plastic packaging for holiday toys, Louis CK vents his frustration in a 2007 appearance on "The Daily Show" with Jon Stewart. Louis talks about "not loving" his one daughter anymore after she "forgets" how to sleep. That annoyance leads Louis to a revelation that he understands why parents abandon their infants in dumpsters, much to the disapproval of Stewart, who attempts to remove Louis from his show. "The whole babies in the garbage thing, I get it now!"

Stopping by the 100th episode of "Lopez Tonight," Louis CK butters up host George Lopez before explaining the differences between people in New York City and people in Los Angeles. The story leads to another about honking the horn, and yet a third story about how he was nearly "murdered" by a kid with spiky hair. "Like I'm thinking 'oh he's trying to kill me but he's not going to go through a red light.'"

Using his two young daughters as the opening for the joke, Louis CK takes on the sensitive issue of racial relations during his appearance on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno." Louis explains that his daughters, being white and female, have nothing in the world to complain about, especially as so many others of different ethnicities and times have or had things so much worse. "I just want to say I'm not trying to say if you're white you can't complain. I'm just saying that if you're black you get to complain more."

Jimmy Carter's Death and Pedophilia
Using his limited time on "The Daily Show" during a 2010 appearance to promote his FX series "Louie," Louis CK offered a great deal of laughs in the five-minute interview with Jon Stewart. Louis talked not only about "how cool it would be" if former President Jimmy Carter died after falling on stage on "The Daily Show" but also how there is no gray area in pedophilia. "There's only two kinds of people. There's people who are horrified and reviled by child touching (with penises) and... then there's the people who can't stop having sex with children. There's no in between. There's nobody who's like 'I don't do it, but I get it.'"
