Louis C.K. gets serious -- but funny -- in 'SNL' opening monologue

Louis C.K. says Americans shouldn't say they're starving because there are people in third-world countries who are "literally starving."

Comedian and actor Louis C.K. tackled some serious topics in his opening monologue as host of Saturday Night Live.

It's not often atheism, wife-beating, single parenting and starving children are brought up in the opening minutes of the Saturday-night sketch comedy show, but Louis C.K. managed to touch on them all and still keep the audience laughing.

He spoke of the existence of God, saying he's not sure how atheists can be sure there isn't one.

"Did you look everywhere?" he questioned. “I haven’t seen ‘12 Years A Slave Yet'; that doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist."

And if God is a single dad, "what did he do to our mom?"

Check out the rest of his nine-minute stand-up routine below.
