American late-night talk show host David Letterman finally got around to having comedian Louis CK on The Late Show and asking him about his June 2012 secret appearance at the Zhengyici Peking Opera Theatre, which the Beijinger sponsored.

When asked about Beijing specifically, Louis said “It’s more like a giant Dayton, Ohio. It’s a huge, smoky…you can’t breathe because of the pollution. You just can’t breathe. It’s brutal,” he said. When Letterman asked if he would return to our fair city, Louis said, “no.”

However, Louis indicated “I loved the people that I met there” and that he’d like to visit another part of China “because I love Chinese culture.”

Come back anytime, Louis.
