<![CDATA['Tonight': Louis C.K. Quits the Internet]]> Tue, 03 May 2016 08:06:46 -0700 http://media.nbclosangeles.com/images/213*120/LOUIS_GettyImages-527343250.jpg

Louis C.K. appeared with pride for his new show and much prejudice against the internet on Monday's "Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon."

The comedian told host Jimmy Fallon that he had cut himself off from the internet by having his daughter lock him out of his new phone. He pulled out a copy of Jane Austen’s "Pride and Prejudice" and said that he’s taken up reading – "something I haven’t done since I was like 19" – since he made this decision.

"I don’t go on the internet anymore," C.K. said, adding it has been over a month since he went online. "Everything is weird and mean and upsetting."

The two also discussed "Horace and Pete," a show that C.K. made in complete secrecy and total independence.

"It was more fun this way. I figured the worst thing that could happen is, I lose money," C.K. said. The show now airs, incidentally, exclusively on the internet.

Unlike C.K.’s previous work, this new show is a drama and is overall not meant to be funny. The series also stars Steve Buscemi, Alan Alda, Jessica Lange, and Edie Falco

"It gets funny in moments," C.K. said. "In the same way that when you’re at a funeral someone will once in a while break the tension."

The process of creating a show free of any studio oversight left C.K. feeling satisfied and he said that, "It’s my favorite thing that I ever did."

He continued, "Nobody made a show that looks like this."

C.K. also revealed he will be doing a stand-up tour this summer which will include stops around the U.S. and also Europe.
