    Comedian Louis C.K has apparently taken an interest in municipal matters, shadowing Mayor de Blasio during meetings to discuss mental health initiatives and the city's finances.

    The Daily News reports the star of FX Networks' "Louie" attended a meeting at the Financial Control Board, quietly sitting in the back and taking notes.

    He then attended a meeting of City Hall staffers about mental health.
