When the trailer for Louis C.K.’s new stand-up special on Netflix was released earlier this week there was one thing everyone was talking about. In this new stand-up special, Louis C.K. is wearing a suit, and it’s jarring. Louis C.K. fans are accustomed to seeing him wearing a black t-shirt and dressing like a slob. In fact, Louis C.K. even has a few jokes in his stand-up bits about how he dresses like someone that causes people to cross the street at night.
Appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night, Louis C.K. explained why he’s now wearing a suit and dressing dapper. He discusses how he was raised believing that when you ‘grow up’ you start wearing suits, and that’s the signifier of adulthood. I don’t necessarily think that’s the case here in America because so many industries are casual these days and/or require uniforms, but around the world, in developing countries, you’d be hard-pressed to find adult males wearing shorts. So, there’s definitely a point to be taken from this.
As for Louis’ explanation of why naps are better than sex I call bullshit. Naps are for the JV squad.
