The New Haven Nose On Louis C.K. And 'First Man'

Oct 19, 2018

Louis C.K.'s surprise return to a comedy club stage in late August was widely covered and discussed. His subsequent performances have maybe sparked less internet conversation, but they're just as confounding. This week, the owner of one club where C.K. has been performing has made a couple media appearances to explain his thinking about the whole thing.

And: Damian Chazelle is the director behind the three-time Academy Award-winner Whiplash and the six-time Academy Award-winner La La Land. His new movie, First Man, stars Ryan Gosling as Neil Armstrong.

Some other stuff that happened this week, give or take:


  • Lucy Gellman - Editor of The Arts Paper and host of WNHH radio's Kitchen Sync
  • Shawn Murray - Stand up comedian and writer and a host of the Fantasy Filmball podcast
  • Mark Oppenheimer - Editor-at-large for Tablet Magazine and host of the podcast Unorthodox
