Do people really see Louis CK as on the same level, name wise, as Chris Rock or Conan O'Brien? I want to live in this fantasy world. If he's added, it'll be limited to the comedy tent, I'm sure. Then again, what do I know? I've never cared for the comedy additions.
Conan didn't even play the main stage. just MC'd it a little bit. Louis C.K. has blown up in the standup comedy scene these past few years....especially since his last time at Bonnaroo. He's gotten well known for the t.v. show as well as his awesome stand up specials.
Is he as big as Conan or Chris Rock? No. But he's a bonnaroo veteran and I think that he could handle a 1 hour set on th What stage. I doubt it will happen but I think he could handle an hour long set.

Yeah, but it's not really a matter of, "Can they handle it" but "Can the Comedy Tent handle them?"
Obviously, Chris Rock is too big to be in the Comedy Tent, it would have been a madhouse, so they put him on What. They tried to make it work with Conan by giving him 2 sets, plus putting him on the Lunar Stage, but even that was wayy too crowded. I don't think Louis CK is too big for the Comedy Tent, which is really all it boils down to.
Although, I too would love if they had him on between MMJ and AF or something like that

Katt Williams is still in the process of being charged for a burglary he was involved in (also another case involving dog charges). He was removed from his last movie set and is pretty much broke. I doubt he's doing much of anything. Sad to cause that dude is hilarious, hope he gets his life back on track.
Demetri Martin and Louis C.K. would be great. As for music acts... Yeasayer and Broken Bells would be quacking incredible. I've had to miss Yeasayer every time they've come anywhere close to me. They would definitely be a must-see for me.
