LOUIE ANDERSON
  1 2 3 4 5 6
Louie Anderson is one of the most versatile and successful comedians working in Hollywood today, loved by the television audiences who never missed his nightly hit series “Family Feud“ or his appearances on late night chat shows. He is adored by standing-room-only crowds in Las Vegas and respected by readers of his books. He is worshiped by the rising comics he mentors and encourages with his honesty and wisdom.

On his new album, LOUIE ANDERSON LIVE, he tells jokes with heart - literally. He shares his adventures in getting older including giving up cigarettes, trips to the doctor, what drugs to take to stay alive, trying to eat healthier, and how he survived open heart surgery. Life changing events that Louie some how makes a hilarious journey. He also shares the stories of his family and childhood that his fans have come to know and love, and have filled houses to hear during Louie‘s long stand-up career. Weaving his passion for Vegas through his tales, nobody can make parents, people, and angioplasty funnier than Louie.

Louie crafted comedy routines that rang true for his early club audiences while reducing them to helpless fits of laughter, routines that led him from his career as a counselor to troubled children to the first-place trophy at the 1981 Midwest Comedy Competition. Henny Youngman, who hosted the competition, recognized the diamond-in-the-rough genius of the young comic and hired him as a writer, providing invaluable experience that soon put Louie in his own spotlight on comedy stages all over the country.

Johnny Carson, the comedy icon for generations of rising stars, invited Louie to make his national television debut on the “The Tonight Show“ in 1984, and the rest is history. Leno, Letterman, “Comic Relief“ and Showtime and HBO specials followed, making Louie a household name and opening doors for him as an actor. He has guest-starred in sitcoms like “Grace Under Fire“ and dramas like “Touched by an Angel“ and “Chicago Hope,“ and he has had memorable featured roles in film comedies like “Coming to America,“ opposite of Eddie Murphy, and the classic “Ferris Bueller‘s Day Off.“ He is also host of the hilarious “Comedy Showcase,“ the late-night series that follows “Saturday Night Live.“

In 1995 Louie put his creative energies to work on the Saturday morning animated series “Life with Louie.“ The long-running series based on Louie‘s own childhood and his life with his father won three Humanitas Prizes for writing on a children‘s animated series, making him the only three-time recipient of this award. It also earned a Genesis Award for its depiction of the proper treatment of animals and, most significantly, two Emmy Awards.

His best selling books include Dear Dad - Letters From An Adult Child, a collection of alternately touching and outrageous letters from Louie to his late father, and Good-bye Jumbo...Hello Cruel World, self-help for those who struggle with self-esteem issues, as only an award-winning comedian could write it.

Louie recently finished writing his newest installment on family, THE F WORD, HOW TO SURVIVE YOUR FAMILY. Now, Louie is traveling the States doing what Louie loves to do, Stand Up Comedy. Louie again delivers to his fans his inimitable brand of humor and warmth
