Get thee to Reddit

Today, Louis C.K. is doing an AMA on Reddit.

If you don’t understand the second half of that sentence, here’s my best attempt to lay it out: Reddit is a link-sharing and discussion website, broken down into a seemingly endless number of topic pages (or “subreddits”). One of those subreddits is called “IAMA“, where people offer their knowledge and invite people to ask me anything. Eg: “I Am A garbageman, AMA“.

Comics have jumped on this before, most notably Stephen Colbert, Aziz Ansari , Chris Hardwick, and Myq Kaplan. There are also a few great ones from writers of shows like Big Bang Theory.

Today, it’s Louis C.K.’s turn, and Reddit is peeing its collective pants with excitement. As of the noonhour (Eastern time), he’s just started responding to the over 1,500 comments, so you probably still have time to get your questions in. Go forth and AMA!
