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.”
With a career spanning more than 30 years, he is a best-selling author, star of his own standup specials and sitcoms, and he continues to tour the country performing to standing-room-only crowds worldwide.
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.
Leno, Letterman, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Comic Relief, Showtime, HBO and CMT specials followed, including hosting the legendary game show, Family Feud.
In 1995, Louie put his creative energies to work on the animated series Life with Louie. The long-running series won three Humanitas Prizes for writing on a children’s’ animated series, 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 Goodbye Jumbo…Hello Cruel World, self-help for those who struggle with self-esteem issues, and his installment on family, The F Word, How To Survive Your Family. His most recent book, Hey Mom, pays tribute to his mother who he has channeled in his stand-up routine for decades.
In 2013, his standup special, Big Baby Boomer premiered on CMT. In his most recent standup special, Big Underwear (2018), he plays on the challenges of getting healthy, life on the road, dealing with technology and how we all eventually become our parents.
When not in production, Louie continues to tour, 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.
