Louis C.K. Hosts SNL: Watch 'Black Jeopardy' and Other Highlights Here

Originally posted 03/30/2014 11:35AM

Louis C.K.'s Saturday Night Live hosting stint played to his strengths while also allowing the comic to branch out.

C.K. was most at home during the opening monologue, which he treated as a block of stand-up time: He discussed the difference between "first-world hunger" and "third-world hunger," ("If you've eaten today, you're not hungry. I'm hungry for a donut but I'm not hungry,") women's suffrage, ("Women got the right to vote in this country in 1920. That means American democracy is 94 years old. There are three guys in my building who are older than American democracy,") and – as usual – parenting. ("There is no more joyful experience in a parent's life than when a child's play is over.")

Timothy Olyphant seems to prefer pigskins to bowling balls. The Justified star was overheard talking about football at the FX Upfront party at Lucky Strike in N.Y.C. Thursday – when he was supposed to be joining his castmates at their lane. The event featured talent from seven series on the network (most of whom wore matching bowling shirts with their show names for a star-studded tournament).

One FX star who didn't don the uniform? Charlie Sheen, who talked about his show Anger Management with reporters and mingled amiably in a corner. Elsewhere, Archer's Judy Greer chatted with pals by her show's lane, and Louis CK made the social rounds as well.

Guests sipped cocktails from two open bars and nibbled on passed hors d'oeuvres like mac and cheese bites early, followed by warm chocolate chip cookies after 10 p.m. – right around the time that Russell Brand popped in to promote his new late night show, Strangely Uplifting. (No sign of the Brit in bowling shoes, however!) – Rennie Dyball

Louis C.K. often deals with the challenges of parenting in his stand-up act, but there's something the comedian finds more difficult than being a father: dog-rearing.

"It's harder having a dog [than having a child]," he told Conan O'Brien on Thursday. "Children develop, and dogs just stay dumb. They never figure it out."
