Comedian Louis C.K. Shadows Mayor de Blasio on Municipal Business

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.

De Blasio and Louis C.K. have some history — in March the actor-comedian appeared at the annual Inner Circle show.

Asked about the visit, the first-term Democrat quipped that there's "a lot of comedy at City Hall."

The newspaper says Louis C.K. is preparing for an upcoming project.
