Watch Louis C.K. Get Interviewed by Louis C.K. Superfan Tony Hawk


Louis C.K. recently sat down for this interview with living skateboarding legend Tony Hawk, whom C.K. refers to as “an American hero” and is apparently a big Louis C.K. fan, like the rest of us. Hawk did the interview for the skateboarding YouTube channel RIDE and recorded it backstage during a recent C.K. tour stop in Detroit before the comedian went onstage at the city’s Masonic Temple. It’s a surprisingly in-depth interview that touches on the process of booking guests for Louie, the Dane Cook debacle, and Reddit AMAs. Unfortunately, though, it doesn’t end with Tony Hawk and Louis C.K. strapping on skateboards and dropping in on a half-pipe.
