The Addison Improv has booked four shows for comedian Louis C.K. next week, and some members of the North Texas comedy community aren't happy about it.
"As soon as I found out he was coming, my stomach completely twisted on itself," says comedian Ruth Banks, who regularly performs at The Comedy Arena in McKinney. "A few years ago I would have lost my mind with excitement, but just looking at his face on the poster (and) all the gross things men have done to me over the years ran through my mind and I honestly had to look away."
The AGT judges got a kick out of Andy Rowell’s silly karaoke act on this week’s show. All four voted “yes” to send him to the next round, but many fans are against the decision. Did Andy steal a famous comedy bit or was he paying tribute to a comedy legend?

When Stormy Daniels announced her first gig as a stand-up comic in March, some comedians recoiled. Though news reports suggested her appearances were more akin to book-tour stops than comedy shows, the fact that the pornographic film star was getting headlining gigs on her first try rankled. After all, Daniels was in the news because she claimed to have an affair with the president, a dalliance he denied.
“Doing standup is not a reward for being famous, please leave the weekend gigs for actual female comics,” the comedian and “Conan” writer La..
