Here is a gallery of pictures featuring a young Louis C.K, dating back to his early days of standup in the 80's. Today he considered one of the funniest stand up comedians on the planet, but Louis actually didn't really make it big until around 2009, when his rant of "everything's amazing and nobody is happy" on Conan went viral and launched him to the next degree of super-stardom. So what did Louis C.K look like when he was young? Well for starters, he certainly had more hair. He was also a lot slimmer, and rocked a clean-shaven look that contrasts his red goatee that he sports today. Some would argue that his change from an optimistic, happily-married man to an overweight, balding, bitter divorcee is what made him truly come into his own as a comic. Check out the pics below of Louis CK when he was young, which include shots with Conan O'Brien, a high school yearbook photo, and several pics of him doing stand up comedy as a younger man.
