It took pretty much his entire life to become the comedy phenom that he is today, but Louie C.K. is living proof that hard work pays off!
The 45-year-old comedian took home the Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series award at the Emmys for his FX show, Louie.
No easy feat either considering he was up against Lena Dunham and Amy Poehler for their respective work on Girls and Parks and Recreation!
Congratz Mr. C.K.! You totz deserve it!
