Louis C.K. was slated to be on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last year, but the talk show host had to cancel at the last minute because his daughter was born. There was a slight problem, though: C.K. didn’t know about this and from the tone of the producer who called him, the comedian thought Fallon was dead.

After being questioned by the show’s producer, who asked C.K. strange questions like “Do you know Jimmy personally?” and “Have you seen him lately?,” he hung up on C.K., leaving him very confused. “So I called a friend of mine and I said, ‘You’re gonna find out on the news tonight that Jimmy Fallon is dead.’”

“I was convinced that you disappeared and they couldn’t find you,” he continued. Thankfully, that wasn’t the case and Fallon is, of course, very much alive.
