Comedian Louis C.K.’s 5 funniest jokes
Just in time for his trip through Dallas.
Comedian Louis C.K. takes the stage Saturday night at The Majestic Theatre for two sold-out and highly anticipated performances. He’s armed with fresh material to go along with his brash wit and brutally honest comedic stylings. For folks who are already familiar with the award winning comic, either through his stand up or through the hit TV show on FX, "Louie," the performance Saturday night is likely to be every bit of what you’ve come to expect from the stand-up veteran. Early returns on his current tour have been outstanding -- and he's apparently as funny as he was on his Grammy-winning comedy album, Hilarious.
We won’t spoil anything for you here. Instead, let’s take a look at some of his finest and most memorable moments of years' past.
Louis C.K.'s Cinnabon joke is probably one of his most famous. Cue the horrendous Cinnabon:
“No one’s happy in the Cinnabon line.”

Louis C.K. is nothing if not relatable to the average middle class American, be it in relationships, anger, parenthood, or in this case, financial woes.
“You ever get so broke it just becomes funny to you?”

Agree with him or not, Louis C.K.’s take on the difference between girls and women is hilarious. It's also not safe for work.
“There’s a reason why they call it Girls Gone Wild. Notice there's no Women Gone Wild.”

One of the trademarks of Louis’ standup as well as on his show is his struggle with getting older. He’s pretty much mastered the art of self deprecating humor.
“Nobody spends their holidays delivering hot meals to 40-year-olds.”

Louis C.K. has a way of tying the entire American culture into one big guilty party. Would you trade in your car to save a life in a third world country?
“Meanwhile I’m just in my car. ‘Boom Boom Boom!’”
