Best "Seriously, what did we ever do to you" Celebrity Shout-Out 

Louis C.K.

Comedian Louis C.K. really, really dislikes Kansas City. Last year, he earned this place in our Best Of issue for having ripped our city while appearing on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, calling KC "terrible," "awful" and "a shithole." He repeats this year for an episode of his FX series. On the show, Louis begs his manager to get him out of a radio interview promoting a KC gig. "They hate me there," he complains. (Not so.) The manager wins, arguing that Louis stands to make a lot more money with the interview than without. Of course, Louis ends up doing a radio interview with an insufferable morning zoo crew (loosely based on Johnny Dare?). Louis shuts down the interview, calling Kansas City "the worst city in North America" and "a dump." The only winner in this: Stanford and Sons Comedy Club, which gets repeated mentions during the episode. Thanks again, Louis.
