If you're still one of those people who don't think comedy folkhero Louis CK is the best thing in the universe, you haven't seen him talk about hitting on Gwyneth Paltrow or the intense loneliness of using a cell phone.

Louis reunited with old friend Conan O'Brien on his TBS show last night and gave an appearance that was pure gold from start to finish. Now, it wasn't your average promotional visit with jokes and anecdotes from the set and making fun of his kid's lisp when he says spicy salsa (like Amy Poehler did the other night). No, he talked about why he won't give his kids cell phones so that they won't be crippled by lonliness when they grow up. It was intense and sad and brilliant and amazing and totally funny.

To lighten things up, he then talked about hitting on Gwyneth Paltrow at a party before she was famous. He even does an amazing Gwyneth Paltrow Making a Disgusted Face impersonation.

And because all of that was too depressing, then he gave Conan some ridiculous acting lessons to lighten the mood.

And there you have it, Louis CK, comedy genius, in your home (and on your Internet) for free. Nothing better than that.
