Doug Stanhope will be guest-starring on an episode of Louis CK's hilarious show Louie tonight. Many comedians have appeared on the show throughout its two seasons, including Nick DiPaolo, Todd Barry, Dane Cook and Joan Rivers, but they usually appear as themselves - Stanhope will be playing a friend of CK's, "Eddie," a character that was written especially for him. Here's a brief promo clip:

Two episodes of Louie will be broadcast tonight, beginning at 10:30 PM EST on the FX channel; Stanhope's appearance will be in the second episode, running at 11 PM.

Doug Stanhope's latest release, the CD/DVD Oslo: Burning the Bridge to Nowhere, is out now; you can get it from Amazon or iTunes.
