I Told You Louis C.K. Is A Good Dad

Louis C.K. reports on his website that he’ll be doing a benefit for his oldest kids school PS3:

Public school is, to me, the most important thing in the whole world that actually exists…I feel very lucky to have my kid in a public school that really works (and I pay a lot of fucking rent to live near that school). This coming year, there are going to be a lot of cuts. A lot. I don’t want PS3 to lose more than it has to. So I’m doing a benefit at Carolines Comedy Club in New York on January 28th. Louis Feranda, the guy that runs Carolines, has been really really helpful, because I don’t know anything about doing a benefit. I’m just going to Carolines on the 28th, (7:30 show) and doing about an hour and ten minutes or more of my new material for everyone who comes to support the school. It’s one show only. I hope we raise a shitload of money.

That’s kind of awesome.  I have heard a lot of parents bitch about public schools and funding cuts.  This is literally the first time I have seen anyone do anything about it beyond a bake sale.  Apparently he’s a much better dad than most.  (not my dad though because he reads this website) Or maybe he just feels bad for spending the last few years making his money by calling his kids assholes.  (which I guess technically my dad has done also, only he didn’t make any money doing it.  He calls us kids assholes for free.)
