TKC FRIDAY UNFUNNY: IS KANSAS CITY VINDICATED AGAINST TRASH TALKING COMEDIAN NOW THAT LOUIS C.K. ADMITS TO SEXUAL ASSAULT ALLEGATIONS!!!
Louis C.K. has always hated Kansas City.
One of our more clever and KICK-ASS TKC READERS recently sent us these Friday flashback quotes from the infamous comedian not so long ago:
"Kansas City is the worst town I’ve ever been in . . . What a dump! It’s the worst city in North America, and that includes Canada and Mexico.”
One more . . .
“If you don’t see your town on the list, it is likely that I’m coming to you later in the year. It’s NOT because I hate your town,” he wrote about the tour schedule in an email newsletter to fans. “Indeed I go to towns that I hate to work all the time. For instance, I played in Kansas City this summer. And I had a great time there. And boy do I hate Kansas City. I hate Kansas City so much, that I had to go to a doctor to ‘have that looked at.’ Luckily, the doctor assured me that I am very healthy and that, indeed, Kansas City is an astonishing dump."
Yes, these are jokey quotes but Kansas City never has a sense of humor about tourism given that elected officials have long lied to the public about 25-million visitors to this town every year with a straight face.
And so and with FULL DISCLOSURE that TKC actually likes the guy's comedy . . .
GIVEN SEX ASSAULT ALLEGATIONS AGAINST LOUIS C.K. AND CRINGE-WORTHY ALLEGATIONS OF MASTURBATION IN FRONT OF SHOCKED AND UNWILLING LADIES . . . DOES KANSAS CITY HAVE THE LAST LAUGH???
It's not a fun topic and Kansas City is confronted with more serious challenges than insults to local honor. However, as the #MeToo movement takes down another entertainment industry titan . . . An old school affront is now the topic of local consideration.
