  1. Thank you for writing such a nice article about Louie. I know Louie is a talented comedian, but it was his family stories that endeared him to me. I have been wanting to meet him for 20 years and will finally be in the position to make the trip this fall. In the meantime it is great to read wonderful articles like this.
