Louis CK crushed one of Jimmy Fallon’s dreams. Really.

“The Dana Carvey Show” was a short-lived ABC comedy series that last just seven episodes in 1996, but the writing staff featured heavyweights like Stephen Colbert, Robert Smigel, Steve Carell, and Louis CK.

The “Louie” star visited Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show” to discuss how he specifically torpedoed Fallon's dreams of appearing as a cast member. Apparently Fallon gave a great audition, but he terrified CK. It's awesome.
