Posted April 8, the interview quoted the comic as saying, "If somebody said to me, 'Here's a part in a play,' I'd definitely try it, and some day I'd like to try to write one."
He added, "That's a huge mystery to me. Every time I go to a Broadway play of any kind--good or bad--as soon as the lights go out and people come onstage and start to speak, I start to cry. I can't help it. The first minute of any play feels really stupid--they're pretending the audience isn't there, and they're having this loud dialogue, and you're like, 'What the f— are these people doing?'--but it's so vulnerable. It's such an effort, and it's such a generous thing to do, and so I always get all choked up.
He mentioned no specific offers or plans for Broadway. He has worked extensively in New York, recording a comedy album at Carnegie Hall, and a TV special at the Beacon Theatre. His first sitcom, "Lucky Louie" for HBO, was acted in front of a live audience.
The new season of "Louie" debuts April 9.
