Comedy superstar Louis C.K. makes his first appearance on the cover of Rolling Stone in our next issue. In the career-spanning Q&A, conducted by senior writer Brian Hiatt, C.K. talks frankly about the teenage drug abuse, onstage disasters and sexual misadventures that helped him become stand-up's reigning genius (not to mention the sitcom auteur behind Louie).  

"The Louie on the show is pretty happy," he says, "and I'm about as happy as he is. I don't mind feeling sad. Sadness is a lucky thing to feel."

Look for the issue on stands and in the iTunes App Store this Friday, April 12th, before C.K.'s latest comedy special premieres Saturday on HBO.
