FX Network is heavily promoting the second season of lo-fi and critical darling show Louie which premiers tomorrow at 10:30 (check your local listings!), and has such, the auteur behind the show, Louis CK has been doing a fair amount of appearances. While we are admittedly big fans of his material, no appearance might be any funnier than his hit on The Daily Show last night in which he simply explained a basic tenent of comedy: Farts are funny.
Jon Stewart fails miserably in keeping it together during the bit, but can be forgiven for enjoying CK’s explanation. As the host mentions towards the end, the deconstruction of jokes is usually an unfunny and tiresome. This example, however, appears to be the exception to the rule.
