WATCH: Louis C.K. Plays Abraham Lincoln As a Standup Comic in SNL Sketch

By Michael Lewittes



Louis C.K. stars as Abraham Lincoln in a filmed “Saturday Night Live” sketch in which the president performs standup at a comedy club and jokes about slavery, his wife, and how he’ll be assassinated.


Lincoln jokes about talking to slave owners and explaining “that owning a person is not cool you stupid d*ck.”

And after a scene in which he argues with his wife about not having tickets to a play, he tells the audience at the standup club, “My wife is crazy… Literally, historically insane.”

But that’s not all.

Lincoln cracks that “someone is gonna murder me…I just know I’m totally getting murdered.”

He adds that he feels “bad for the detective who has to solve my murder,” because the possible suspects are “everyone from the middle of the country down.”
