Retweeted by June Thomas"I don't get my comedy from shows that are comedies," says Pamela Adlon. Not alone in that. #TCA15Louis C.K. really does speak largely in sports metaphors, as Pamela Adlon claimed before. #TCA15Louis CK on comedy vs. drama: It's not like I'm playing basketball and I want to play baseball. You can do them both in the same court.
Retweeted by June ThomasI swear Louis C.K. just took on a Canadian accent when responding to a Canuckian questioner. #TCA15"He always talks in baseball and boxing terminology to me," Pamela Adlon on how Louis C.K. offers her direction. #TCA15"I start with an intention and then I just kind of move around," Louie on his planning process for the last season of Louie worked. #TCA15Louis C.K. is wearing a snazzy blue suit, tie, and New Balance sneakers. #dapper #TCA15
