Iconic comedian Louie Anderson, the three-time Emmy Award® winner, is one of the country's most recognized and adored comics; named by Comedy Central as "One of 100 Greatest Stand-Up Comedians of All Time."

As a standup, he shares the ups and downs of his childhood experiences as one of eleven children in Minnesota, 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 his national television debut on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson in 1984. The rest is history.
