Renowned stand-up comedian and actor Louie CK, known for his irreverence as much as his fearlessness, took on the always controversial topic of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict when he hosted the season finale of Saturday Night Live.
CK, whose full name is Louis Székely, used the backdrop of the Middle East conflict to describe the relationship between his two young daughters in the opening monologue of the hit NBC show.
"My kids are like Israel and Palestine and I'm like America. The little one's like Palestine because she always gets screwed, she gets the worst deal," CK joked.
"The older one is like Israel, she comes up to me like, 'She burnt all my dolls!' I'm like, 'Look, I can't do anything about it right now. Your sister is crazy, please don't make me talk to her. I'll work it out, you and me. I'll buy you a really cool missile and whatever you do with it is totally up to you," he went on to say.
