Louie Anderson The Great White Hope of Diving Shows

0215_louie_anderson_PCNComedian Louie Anderson is training for one of those new celebrity diving shows -- along with the likes of super babe Katherine Webb and NFL star Ndamukong Suh -- but everyone else just pales in comparison.

The 59-year-old showed off his pearly white wet dewy flesh after performing a big dive in L.A. on Thursday.

Things haven't exactly been going swimmingly for the comic -- he had to be pulled out of the water a few weeks ago after a mishap in the pool.
