This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, see the FAQ.

I'll just show it for $l_\infty$. I'm pretty sure that's enough. Also, showing that they are normed spaces is pretty straight forward.
Anyway, a space is separable if there is a countably dense subset. We can show $l_\infty$ is not separable by showing the existence of an uncountable subset such that any two elements of the subset cannot be closer than some fixed number. The reason for this is, put a ball of that fixed radius around each element of the uncountable set. Then, by density of the countable subset, we can put an element of the countable subset inside each one of those balls. But then the countable subset must be uncountable, a contradiction.
So, for $l_\infty(\mathbb{C})$, let $\{I_\alpha\}$ be the uncountable set of all subsets of $\mathbb{N}$. And let $\{a_n^\alpha\}$ be the sequence such that $a_n^\alpha=1$ if $n\in I_\alpha$ and $a_n^\alpha=0$ if not. Then the set of all such sequences (indicator sequences for subsets of $\mathbb{N}$ by the way), is uncountable. But, the distance between any two of them, which is equal to $sup_n\{a_n^\alpha-a_n^\beta\}$ must be equal to 1, since if it isn't, $I_\alpha=I_\beta$. So, we have our contradiction.
The case of $L^{\infty}$ is even easier. Just consider $\{\chi_{[-t,t]}\}_{t \in \mathbb{R}}$. – t.b. Apr 14 '11 at 21:38
