Louis C.K. is one of my favorite comedians, so I’m happy to have an excuse to write about him here now that Jennifer Gould Keil of the New York Post reports that he bought Babe Ruth’s old house in the Hamptons for $2.49 million.

It’s a three-story, 4,957-square foot place called “Primrose Cottage” built in 1901 and apparently Ruth used to “summer” there.

Here’s a photo of the place, via the real estate website “The Real Deal”:

I mean, I guess that’s a decent place if you’re into that type of thing. I’ve been trying to buy Luis Rivas’ old place in Minnesota for years now, but can’t scrape together the cash.

    Correct me if I’m wrong but didn’t Babe Ruth do most of his “Summering” with the Yankees?

      Until he retired, yes.

    $2.5 million? That’s a lot of hungry people, Louis!

    “My life is really evil, like there are people who are starving in the world, and I drive an Infiniti. That’s really evil. There are people who would just starve to death. That’s all they ever did. There’s people who are like born, and they go, ‘Oh, I’m hungry,’ and then they just die. And that’s all they ever got to do. And meanwhile, I’m in my car, like having a great time and I sleep like a baby. It’s toally my fault, ’cause I could trade my Infiniti for like a really good car, like a nice Ford Focus with no miles on it, and I’d get back like $20,000. And I could save hundreds of people from dying of starvation with that money, and every day I don’t do it. Every day I make them die with my car.”

    Yes but is he master of his domain? Note to Louie: there is no basement described in the listing.

    The best part about this eventually Louis will do a few minutes on the Babe and it will be awesome.

    House is in Shelter Island . Which is not the Hamptons. It is the anti Hamptons. Ck will feel right at home there. Still close enough to get good material for standup routine.
