I was born and raised on the east side of Indianapolis, and although I haven't lived there in a long time, I will always have fond memories of those years spent in and around Naptown. I don't expect everyone to feel the same way I do - I realize we all have different experiences that form our opinion of a city. Apparently, Louis CK has not had many good experiences in Indianapolis.

'Hate' is a Strong Word

I remember being told at a young age that you shouldn't hate anything or anyone. You may strongly dislike something, but hate is just something you shouldn't do. Hate is a strong word - a strong emotion - so, imagine my shock when I hear a comedian I've always enjoyed say that he HATES Indianapolis.

In the TikTok below, comedians Louis CK and Chris Distefano discuss the cities they hate visiting. They both almost instantly say Indianapolis, but not before Louis CK compliments a comedy club, its owner, and the hotel he has stayed in. Surely, there must be some reason why they both hate Indy so much - they must be able to point to something that has left them both with a such bad taste in their mouth. Maybe they will explain in the video.

Did you hear any reason why they hate Indianapolis? If you did, will you please let me know because I must have missed it? All I heard was that Indy is horrible and that it stinks and sucks. Not that I care, because I really don't, but I'm just curious as to what would cause such vitriol.

I hope you caught the hilarious irony in Distefano's last statement. Speaking of Columbus, Ohio, he says "I love a state capital." He must not realize that the city he was just bashing is also a state capital.

38 Celebrities Who Were Born in Indiana

There are a bunch of famous folks that everyone knows were born in Indiana, but there are even more that you didn't know about. Most of this list is arranged in alphabetical order, except for the handful of celebrities born in our neck of the woods here in southern Indiana. I gotta give them a little preferential treatment.
