Tina Fey and Amy Poehler weren’t the only comedians to pull off a costume change during the Golden Globes last night. Louis C.K., who was nominated for an award in the Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy category, donned a tux for a quick spin around the Beverly Hilton. (Jeffrey Tambor ended up taking home that category’s trophy for his role in Transparent). But by 8:41 p.m., C.K. was in his signature long-sleeved black T, jeans, and sneakers and on stage at the Forum in Inglewood, where the Louie star performed a set for 13,000 fans. “I’m probably the only person who ever changed out of a tuxedo to perform,” he said dryly. Aside from briefly mentioning the Globes at the start of his short encore, C.K. put on a totally unrelated show filled with jokes about sexism, racism, the sexual proclivity of rats, homophobic babies, death, lying, and raising his two daughters gay. He took the loss well.
