Louis C.K. on losing the audience

Louis C.K. / New York Times:

I don’t really worry about losing the audience. What’s that movie with Tom Cruise as a car race guy? “Days of Thunder.” Robert Duvall teaches him that when there’s a car crash, and you can’t see because of the smoke, you just go straight through. If you follow their insecurity and their anxiety around, then you’re chasing their problems, and nobody knows what’s going on.
