Second annual Comedy Awards handed out in Gotham

Louis C.K. was the man to beat Saturday night, as the second annual Comedy Awards were handed out at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City.

By the time the comedian won his fourth award, he’d gotten tired of saying “thanks” to a crowd that included Amy Poehler, Will Arnett, Tina Fey, Adam Scott, Ty Burrell, Jim Carrey, Ed Helms, Maya Rudolph and Chris Rock.

“This is stupid now,” he said, adding it was a nightmare “to keep getting this fucking thing over and over again.”

Presenter Tracy Morgan took the opportunity to make a “special” announcement. “I’m quitting show business … to join the Secret Service,” he joked, adding that his gig at the Comedy Awards would be his last duty as a celebrity.

Icon Award honoree Robin Williams had a special message for his wife, saying, “Tonight, my darling Susan, you’ll be fucking with an icon!”

The Johnny Carson Award went to Don Rickles, who had high praise for Jon Stewart, David Letterman and Jimmy Kimmel, and did his best Robert De Niro impression.

Rickles summed up the evening with, “I see many people in this audience, and I realize tonight, I’m the biggest name here.”
