Louis CK is taking a break from Louie until Spring 2014. He requested and received the extended hiatus from FX president and GM John Landgraf, who said of the comic: “Louie has continued to raise the bar and recharge his batteries. I don’t think there’s anyone else in business who’s produced, starred, directed and edited all but seven episodes … I’m not surprised he needs a bit of a break.”
He’s right, it’s not surprising Louis would need a break. Between winning Emmys, Grammys, directly releasing his own hit special and Tig Notaro’s Live, the guy needs time to write more material, do a stand-up tour, eat ice cream and jerk off. He might be one of the best living comics, but he ain’t Superman.
