Just heard that Louis Anderson died. My wife and I watched "Baskets" for the whole time it was on, and he played a hilarious role as Zach Galifianakis' mom.  I've listened to some of his stand-up as well, a very funny guy. Too bad.

He was the headline dinner entertainment at one of our hotel conferences many years ago.  I was on a special committee at the time, so the President of the company put me and my wife in the front row center.  For some reason, Louie thought I was the Company President and roasted "me".  I kept laughing at everything, including some real insults. Louie took that as permission and really let loose!  The President who was sitting several rows back was fuming and not laughing! 

After the show we had a meet and greet with him and when I was introduced Louie realized his mistake and said Oh My God, your not the President!  I'm not going to get paid for this gig!  We have a picture of the meet and greet somewhere.

I loved Louie Anderson as a comedian! He was freaking hysterical telling his stories with that unique voice.

My wife and I went to see Louie many years ago at the Turning Stone Casino, laughed like hell, and met him back stage afterwards. He was gracious and genuinely friendly towards us, and I actually cracked him up laughing.

We also have a picture here of us together.

Rest in peace, Louie.
